Kaylen Frederick demonstrated the talents, disciplines and mindsets of a champion at an early age. At age seven, Kaylen began racing in karts at the nearby Summit Point Raceway in West Virginia, winning his championship at the first attempt. From there, six successful years in Karting followed in WKA, GLSS, SKUSA, Rotax Max Challenge, and Florida Winter Tours winning races and podiums.

Kaylen stepped up to single seater cars in 2016 with Team Pelfrey for the Formula Productions F1600 Championship. At age 13, in the pre-season F1600 Winter Series races at PBIR & Sebring during February of 2016, Kaylen collected two pole positions and a 3rd place. Once he turned 14 years of age, Kaylen entered the F1600 Series in June mid-way through the championship. Pole positions, podiums, and a win followed quickly. Kaylen also began training in July of 2016 with Rob Wilson at Bruntingthorpe, England, a training that continues in the present.
Racing as the youngest driver in the 2017 Mazda Road to Indy USF 2000 campaign at 14 years of age, Pilot ONE Racing driver Kaylen Frederick routinely impressed in his rookie season and finished 4th in the 2017 USF2K MRTI Championship. After 14 races, five podiums, two second-place finishes and three 3rd-place finishes, Kaylen reflects on his debut MRTI season:
“There was a lot of growth and learning in 2017. While I need to land poles in qualifying and win races in 2018, my race craft has developed. Racing at the tough street course in Toronto from 13th place to 3rd was one of my strong runs in the 2017 USF2K championship and again showed I have speed. Give me a fast car in 2018. I’m ready to win.”

A Look to the Future:
Like many aspiring young drivers, Kaylen’s aim is to reach for Formula 1, Indy Car, the Indy 500, Formula E, and to compete for World Championships. Please watch these pages as Kaylen races through series and championships in the US and Europe.
“Kaylen Frederick was very impressive from the very first outing on track. What’s most impressive is his ability to transfer what he’s seen on data and video and then translate that to performance on track. He never stops finding more time and always wants more. I can’t wait to see how he develops, because he’s already at a level that’s way beyond his age and experience.”
