9 year old son wants to race

Hi all, I'm sure this has been talked over many times in here but I'm new to the forum so here it goes. My 9 year old son wants give racing a try this year and I'm not sure what bike to get him. He currently has a TTR-50 but has outgrown it, and it wouldn't work for racing anyhow. I'm looking at either a KTM 50 sr, or a Kx 65. I'm concerned that trying to figure out the world of racing and a clutch may be too much for him and it will put him off on the whole idea. At the same time he is already going to be behind the other kids his age and so I worry that the 50 wont be sufficient. Any thoughts/suggestions? Thanks!
