Start in Racing

Kyle has been racing since the age of 5. By the age of 13, Kyle became fully sponsored by Walldinger Racing/Shell Penzoil and began his car career with Skip Barber. Ocala Grand Prix picked up Kyle as a fully sponsored driver in 2013. With multiple National and International Championships under his belt, Kyle is excitedly entering his next era of racing in cars, ultimately climbing the ladder to Formula 1.

With several Florida Winter Tour karting championships under his belt including winning the Skip Barber Racing Scholarship in 2012, Kyle became a fully Sponsored driver with Ocala Gran Prix and with them, a member of Team USA in 2013. He was the first American to qualify on the Pole position and the first American to start a Pre-Final on the Pole at the Rotax Grand Finals in New Orleans 2013. In addition, in 2013, Kyle won the SKUSA Super Nationals in Las Vegas as a rookie S5 driver.

In 2014, Kyle turned heads as he swept the ROK Cup USA in Ocala (Fla.) as a rookie “Senior” as well as winning the SKUSA Dallas Spring Nationals as a rookie S2 driver. He closed out 2014 as a finalist for the MAXSpeed Group Driver Advancement Program.

The 17 year old’s youth and unique occupation put him in prime position for marketing dollars invested in rising stars that aren’t being led but, quite the opposite, taking the lead.

The greatest stage in sports marketing is about to get brighter as Kyle Kirkwood continues to make waves in the sport of auto-racing. Fasten your seat-belts, the ultimate helm in motorsports has a new star in Kyle Kirkwood.
