Little Carts that Go

Go-kart racing has been around since the 1950s, and go-karts themselves since the 1930s. As the sport evolved, it gave prominent racecar drivers such as Jeff Gordon and Al Unser Jr. their start. See local go-kart racers press petal to the metal on January 7, 11 a.m.–2 p.m., at the Indoor Go-Kart Winter Races at the Lake County Fairgrounds in Lakeport. A spectator pit pass is $30.
