Father & Son Team

Twelve-year-old Jacob Satterfield of Lubbock and his father, Mitch Satterfield, work on Jacob’s Kart early Friday afternoon at the Mallet Event Center & Arena. They were among the more than 90 competitors who had signed up so far for the 1st annual ‘Thunder Zone’ West Texas Kart Nationals in Levelland. Over 100 competitors were expected to compete in a dozen classes for $21,000 in prize money. It was being held Friday and Saturday in Levelland. Jacob has been competing for five years. Some of the karts can cost as much as $8,000, and competitors build their own motors and also buy them. (Staff Photo)
