About Slater

Slater Helt is a 15-year old Harrisonville, Missouri native that is continually climbing through the ranks of racing, and he would like your support! An enthusiastic and avid racer of seven years, Helt began his career at the age of seven in go-karts. The talented wheelman has garnered a whopping total of 72 career wins since he started back in 2007, and shows no sign of stopping his winning ways soon.

He went on to win several special events including two Pro Kart National Series races and the 2011 Tarren Heremsa Memorial. The young gasser claimed four track championships while running karts at places like Emma Raceway, Lasoski Speedway and the Sedalia Coliseum. He also wound up fifth in the 2011 Pro Kart National point standings during his final year of kart racing. Heading into 2012, the decision was made to make the switch into Restricted micro sprints.

After guiding his Helt’s Turf Farms No. 22 to six victories that year, he then moved into A-Class midway through 2013. In the summer of 2014, the purchase of a new Metric Cycles powered Pace Chassis also allowed Helt to move into the Outlaw class.

He ended the season on a strong note as he earned career first victories in both A-Class and Outlaw at Sweet Springs Raceway. The year finally came to a close as Helt ran second at Port City Raceway’s $11,000 to win “Outlaw Nationals,” an event dubbed the biggest micro sprint race in history.
