Soldotna resident Annita Braun, 14, of GoGirl Racing won the Northstar Speedway Track Championship, as well as the state championship in a Bandolero racecar. Braun received her awards at the speedway banquet on Sept. 15 at Settlers Bay Clubhouse in Wasilla. Her peers voted her, Bandolero Sports Person of Year. This was Braun's second year racing the Bandolero at Northstar Speedway. In 2006 she finished the season fourth. She got her start racing four years ago on the Kenai Peninsula with the Kenai Peninsula Racing Lions Quarter Midgets racing at the Twin City Raceway dirt track, as well as pavement races held in parking lots around the area. She plans to race her Bandolero race car for one more season. See interview Soldotna Community Neighbors column.
