Go-Karts For All Ages At River Cities Speedway

Racers ages 5 to 70 compete every Wednesday night.

Go-karts raced around the track tonight at River Cities Speedway.

Every Wednesday night racers of all ages hit the track at 7:00 p.m.

About 50 racers compete each night.

There are eight different classes and the top three racers in each class get trophies.

But most racers say its all for fun.

"For the most part, you know, it's mostly a family sport, so you know it's just all about getting together on a Wednesday night and having a good time," Racer and Forks Karting Association President Brandon Thorvilson said.

Races are every Wednesday, registration is from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

And all ages are welcome.
