Evan Batt

Evan is 22 years old, a graduate from Noblesville High School, and a recent graduate of the Krannert School of Management at Purdue University.  Evan’s academic strengths (Evan was inducted into the National Honor Society) have carried over into karting, making him one of the more technical drivers on the karting circuit.  Although Evan started karting late (age 16), he proved his ability with numerous race wins in KRA, GLSS, SKUSA, Great Lakes Pro Series, and Route 66, along with WKA national podium finishes, and KRA season championships in multiple classes. 

Evan returned to the KRA Series in 2010 to race a Tony Kart Krypton with a DDR Honda in the shifter class.  He raced the series against his bother Eric for the first time in the same class.  Evan won the first 11 races for a perfect season and was named the 2011 Senior Driver of the Year.  Evan also won nearly every other race he entered, including a KRA TaG race, two Great Lakes Pro Series races, and a SKUSA Central States Challenge race.  Evan also has a second place finish in the SKUSA Summer Nationals. 

Evan raced a limited schedule for 2011 as he begins his working career, and will race in 2012 on a new DDR Powered DR S97 Kart.

Outside of karting Evan enjoys golf, fishing, and music. Evan is also a Certified Circerone®, one of only a few in Indiana.

Derek Daly"I think Evan surprised a lot of people by being right  on the pace despite his limited experience in the sport. He appears to have a very natural feel for the dynamics of a race kart, which should keep him at the front during any championship chase".....Derek Daly, Professional Race Car Driver, Motorsports Commentator, and Public Speaker.
