This award was initiated by David Klaus, Director, Briggs Racing. He shared “I am blessed to have had the honor of working with Syd White over the years as head of IKF tech. Syd was my friend, someone I had the utmost respect for, along with his contagious energy and love for karting. The racer was always first in his mind, as was the cost and impact of every rule. Syd understood the value of a level playing field, of stability, and family involvement. Syd used to call me out of nowhere to read article after local newspaper article of past and present young IKF karters. His pride was evident, as was the smile that came through the phone line. This award celebrates Syd White, his love for the sport, and his passion to create a positive environment for families to
make memories. I miss those calls from Syd, but my hope is to hear the same pride in the voice of a mom or dad as they talk about their son or daughter's karting experience”.
