Karting league

Sean was recently invited by his friend Derek to join a karting league at Miller Motorsports Park. Anyone who knows Sean well knows this is pretty much a dream come true. J-dawg and I went out and watched him race last Tuesday night and it was a lot of fun. The guys are very serious about it. A few of them (including Sean) even wore their special racing shoes. First they do a qualifying race-- their lap times determine their position for the second race. Anyway, these aren't your everyday go-karts. These babies go up to 55 mph!

Beginning of the first race:

That is the greatest thing to do. Glad that you can go out and participate in something like that. Very jealous. Thanks for the videos. It brought back great memories. One day we'll be on a track together again.
