Sometimes farmers step off the tractors and get on the track! We’re excited to be racing slingshot cars on area dirt tracks this season. Our #77 & #78 cars will be fine-tuned over the winter and ready to race this spring! More info and photos will be posted throughout the season. If you’re a race fan, follow us here and on our dedicated Donaldson Farms Racing sites! Plus, be sure to check out our sponsors!
#78 Aidan Donaldson
Aidan has been racing go-karts in the Junior League at Lehigh Valley Grand Prix since he was 9 years old. He has advanced from Junior Karts to Adult Karts during that time. Named champion two times and runner up this past season, it’s one of his favorite places to be. 2018 will be Aidan’s 2nd season racing slingshots, but the first season racing in his own #78 car. He is 12 years old, in 7th grade, loves skiing and playing all sports but his passion is racing!
#77 Jasper Zeigafuse
Jasper is 14. He races go karts at Lehigh Valley Grand Prix, enjoyed racing Stage One Modifieds last season and he is going to race the Donaldson Farms Slingshot #77 for the 2018 season!
Check the Hamlin Speedway website and look for #1 Junior Slingshot Division listings to find out when Aidan will be racing!
