Ashton Wheeler Racing Background

Our driver, Ashton Wheeler has been involved kart racing since the age of 4.  He loves the competitive nature go kart racing offers and 2017 will be Ashton’s 10th year to be racing karts.  Our racing team is primarily funded by Ashton’s parents, Ryan & Karen Wheeler, along with support from Triple E Sales and Schurr Power in Orion, Illinois for chassis and motor development.  Our position gives us many unique tools and resources that most race teams do not have. We strive to develop our racing program in any way possible. In order to be successful, we feel we must work harder than our competitors in every way. We are willing to do what it takes to win.

The Wheeler Racing Team has been planning all winter for a great 2017 race season.  With many improvements and acquired knowledge over the past 10 years, we hope to have a strong season with more success than ever.

The Wheeler Racing team consists of Ashton Wheeler, Ryan Wheeler, Stan Erdmann, Kyle Erdmann, Ty Schurr and the endless help from family and friends when time permits.  Ashton Wheeler is the driver and leader of our team.  Ryan Wheeler is crew chief, chauffeur, and also known as the “DAD.”  Stan & Kyle Erdmann responsible for chassis development and kart setup.  Ty Schurr is responsible for engine performance and development.
