Bryant leaves his mark on the track

Stetson Bryant

Stetson Bryant “Tasembo” is eight years old and lives in his hometown of McAlester, Oklahoma.

Stetson got his first go-kart for Christmas in 2021 to ride around in his yard, and it has turned into so much more.

Since then, he and his pit crew have gone full throttle with competitive go-kart racing.

He started his racing career in Nashoba, Oklahoma, at Kiamichi Mountain Speedway, where he won multiple races.

Stetson’s parents then found other go-kart tracks around Oklahoma and Texas that he has raced at and showed how competitive he is.

He won the track championship at 3D Raceway in Haskell, Oklahoma. His home tracks are 81 Raceway in Minco, Oklahoma, during the summer and Outlaw Motorsports in Shawnee, Oklahoma, during the winter. He has brought home plenty of trophies between the two tracks.

In 2022, he brought home a third-place finish in points in the Jr. 1 class at Outlaw Motorsports, and in 2023, he brought home a first-place finish in points in Jr. 1 and third-place in points in the Jr. 2 class at 81 Raceway.

In August 2023, Stetson raced at two tracks out of state. He and his crew made their way up to Illinois and Iowa to race at one of the year’s biggest races against some national competition. They had a great learning experience and hope to return this year.

Over the last two and a half years of racing, Stetson has had 50+ wins and multiple second and third-place finishes. Stetson is currently first in points in the Jr. 1 class at Outlaw Motorsports and has three races left for the indoor season.

In his downtime, Stetson enjoys fishing, riding his yard kart around the house, playing football, learning the Choctaw language and racing sprint cars on the PS5.

He would like to say “yakoke” to his sponsors and everybody who has helped him get as far as he has in his short racing career because without them, this wouldn’t have been possible!
