  • Question: My child started racing young and is growing like a weed. I'm concerned about investing money into a youth race seat that my kid will outgrow in a year or two. I heard you can "lease your children's seats". Can you please tell me more about race seat leasing?
  • Answer:This program is called The Spencer Clark Child Development Program. It is a simple trade in program which starts with the purchase of a new or used seat and as your child grows you can trade up for a bigger seat or a seat for a different division.  The cost in this program is minimal depending on the seat.
