Since first getting behind the wheel of a kart in 2003 at the age of 7, Peter Portante has established himself as one of the up and coming drivers in the Northeast. Taking a different path from the norm, Portante graduated from oval and road course karting to stock cars with the ultimate goal of racing in the IZOD IndyCar Series and the Indianapolis 500. After dipping his toes into road racing in 2011, Portante will add the Skip Barber Summer Race Series and selected F2000 Championship races to his full season of Late Model racing at Stafford Motor Speedway. Peter would like to thank Spargo Construction, Intercity Lines, Northern Construction, B & R Electrical Contracting, Bell Helmets, Cookie Bar, and Pagliacci’s Restaurant for their support.
Away from the track Peter lives with his family in Plainville, Conn. and is a student at Plainville High School. Learn more about Peter at www.peterportante.com
