About Eric

"It's all about connections," as Grandpa Blumer would say. And Eric's biography can't be told without including many of the people who helped him with his racing through the years.
Eric started racing karts at the age of six, primarily with the Badger Kart Club (Dousman, WI) and the Road America Karting Club (Elkhart Lake, WI). While there were wins, Eric's first championship didn't come until his early teens with family friend Brian Benisch calling the shots. Brian's son Preston also raced karts and the families often traveled together. Eric scored two Yamaha Lite championships at the C-Tech Road America Motorplex with the help of Brian. This was paved road circuit racing.
In the middle of those championships, local Midget and Sprint Car driver, Joe Wipperfurth gave Eric a dirt kart to run. Joe also helped Eric get in contact with the Sainsbury family, who were invaluable with their knowledge of dirt racing and teaching life lessons about the world of racing in general. Eric scored a championship on the little dirt oval within Beaver Dam Raceway, thanks to the help of Jerry and Steve Sainsbury.
Eric is well known for his work ethic. Since he was old enough to drive, Eric has often spent summers working seven days a week between High Performance Goaltending (Sun Prairie and Oregon, WI) and Road America in Elkhart Lake, WI.
Late in 2017, with the advice of local Legend and Midget driver, Brian Peterson, Eric (with Mom and Dad splitting the bill) bought his own Legend car, he had just turned 18 and was a senior at Sun Prairie High School.
He raced his first Legend race in 2018 and the story is still being written...
Eric attends the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, as did his dad and Grandpa Blumer. His major is business. He plays on the DIII club hockey team which is part of the American Colligate Hockey Association.

Career Highlights

(Feb. 2019) Buying and tending to his own race car and especially competing at his home track of Angell Park Speedway are two of Eric's highlights to date.
He was a class champion twice (2016 &17) at the Road America Motorplex in the Yamaha Lite kart division. The RA Motorplex is a road circuit specifically made for karting within the confines of the world renowned Road America.
He scored a senior class championship along with the "Sportsmanship Award," on the karting dirt oval within Beaver Dam Raceway in 2017.
Strapping into his own Legend car for the first time and running the "plowed field" (literally) that was the Wilcenski Farms Proving Ground was a highlight in itself. Winning a heat race (as predicted by one of his mentors, Brian Peterson) and nearly winning a second at Beaver Dam Raceway were 2018 season highlights.
Racing at his home track of Angell Park Speedway was also a highlight.

Hobbies

Racing and hockey.
