Keelan Harvick, the son of 2014 NASCAR Cup Series champion Kevin Harvick, continues to showcase his prodigy driving skills in the karting ranks. On Sunday, the 9-year-old scored yet another win, this time in the IAME USA East Grand National Championships at Go Pro Motorplex in Mooresville, NC.
Here is the video of the final battle to the checkered flag, where Harvick prevailed over Augustus Toniolo.

At just nine-years old, Harvick is showing the skillset needed to advance up the racing ladder. As long as he continues to have passion for the sport, it seems the son of the NASCAR champion will certainly have a chance to make it to the big leagues.
