Sage Karam is a superstar in the making. With All-American looks and incredible natural talent on the track, this up-and-coming racecar driver is a native of Nazareth, Pennsylvania. Racing experts might say that Sage learned his craft from the best in the business, having grown up across the street from Mario, Michael and the rest of the legendary Andretti Family.
Karam is a Pro Mazda “Road to Indy” scholarship winner, having dominated the 2010 USF2000 National Championship with Andretti Autosport, recording nine race wins and 11 pole positions in 12 starts. In 2011, he moved up to the Star Mazda Championship and won “Rookie of the Year” honors with two wins. Voted the Most Popular Driver in the Pro Mazda Series, Karam became the youngest driver to ever win a race in the championship. Previously Sage competed in various karting series, eventually becoming a 35-time World Karting Association and IRL Stars of Karting National champion. At the age of 13, he was the youngest driver to win the annual Skip Barber Karting Scholarship Shoot-out. In addition, he was the only American driver to compete in both a national karting championship and an open-wheel professional series full time in 2009.
This season, after finishing third in the Pro Mazda driver’s championship with three race wins for Andretti Autosport in 2012, Sage moved up to drive the #8 Comfort Revolution car for Sam Schmidt in the Firestone Indy Lights Series. Sam Schmidt Motorsports, which was formed by Sam Schmidt in 2001, is the winningest team in Firestone Indy Lights history, recording 26 race victories and three driver championships. Combined with Sage’s raw talent on the track…this team just might be unbeatable!
When he’s not flying around the racetrack, Sage is a highly decorated wrestler as a Junior at Nazareth High School. His other interests include iRacing, dirtbikes, quads, fitness, going to movies, video games and listening to music. Sage is also deeply involved in ‘Operation Smile,’ a children’s charity that has been treating facial deformities such as cleft lips and cleft palates all around the world since 1982. Through his relationship with businessman Michael Fux, Sage has traveled to Honduras to work with the doctors and nurses of Operation Smile.
