On the heels of the Northeastern Midget Association announcing that it had inked a deal with Star Speedway for the opening race for the NEMA division, Bertrand Motorsports has announced that 24-year-old Kyle Hamilton of Plainfield, Indiana will do double duty for the team on Saturday May 6th. He will run the Bertrand Motorsports #45 in the Lite division and the famed #47 in the NEMA division. Hamilton made two appearances for Frank Manafort & Bobby Seymour in 2016, finishing 2nd and 4th, respectively, in the NEMA Lite series.
Hamilton is no stranger to the cockpit of powerful open wheel cars. The 2009 USAC Ford Focus National Champion and USAC National midget feature winner, also has experience racing Silver Crown cars and non-wing Sprint cars. Hamilton has driven for famed car owners such as Bob East, Don & Mel Kenyon and Steve Lewis/9 Racing.
“I’m excited to team up with Bertrand Motorsports. They have a top notch program that demands respect from the competition and I’m looking forward to joining forces at Star Speedway,” Hamilton said.
