Jared Howe, 14, of Pottersville waits for the starting signal before taking off for a few laps in the annual WCKM Charity Go-Cart Race held Aug. 18 at Adventure Racing in Queensbury. Jared captured first-place in the youth division. The charity event was raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and Jared and his mother Nicole Howe, as they have two relatives with the condition, sought to compete to demonstrate their support towards a cure. The two raced wearing 'Team Noah' T-shirts in honor of Noah Gath of Schroon Lake, Jared's younger cousin. Incidentally, Nicole claims that she taught Jared how to navigate go-kart courses with championship expertise.
