  • Pearcy picks up big kart win

    Shelbyville’s Daniel Pearcy picked up his first kart-racing win since 2013 with his victory at the Mel Kenyon Classic on June 5.

    “It felt good to win, the last few years have been tough getting out there,” Pearcy said. “We’ve needed sponsors the last few years, and we’ve gotten them this year.”

    “I lined up and hit the shot and I was shocked when it went in,” Henninger said. “The funny thing is, I’m not even that great of a golfer myself.”
