Carter Williams "Search for a Champion" Entry


Carter Williams
On The Track, Asphalt

I would first like to thank Champion® for providing this incredible opportunity to win this prestigious scholarship. I have been following the scholarship from the beginning and I have been waiting for the right opportunity to apply for this scholarship and partner with Champion®. At the beginning of 2016, after twelve years of karting and twelve major championships I started my formula car career where I became the Formula Car Challenge presented by Goodyear Triple Crown National champion. Now more than ever, as I begin my second year in formula cars, I need continue to build my partner base to further my career, and that’s where Champions’® “Search for a Champion” comes in.
Throughout my racing career I have known what it means to be a champion on and off the track. While karting, I achieved a 4.1 GPA at Sanger High School, graduating with Academic Honors Magna Cum Laude. I was also a seven-time letterman and captain of the swim and water polo teams my senior year. I am currently enrolled at California Polytechnic State University at San Luis Obispo, where I am majoring in Business with a concentration in Marketing to further my racing career. In addition, I have also been asked to join the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) formula race team where we design and build our own race cars. There I will be one of the teams race and test drivers for the 2016-2017 school year. If I were selected, I would be honored to be an ambassador for the Champion® brand. My race schedule would include the Formula Car Challenge race series, along with the Indy Car GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma, as well as the Cal Poly formula team, and a limited karting schedule. Thank you again for your consideration.
