Caring Karts Churnin’ Dust.facebook_-403387952

returns to the July celebration as part of the RC ThunderFest.

Businesses purchase the go-karts through Vetesnik Power Sports, decorate them and then race them on behalf of a charity.

Each kart is entered into five separate heats, allowing them to match their skills against all of the other competitors.

Karts are governed down by Vetesniks who also officiate the races.

The top five karts are then placed in a final race to determine which charities split the entrance fees.

Races begin at 1:00 P.M and continue each hour with the final race being run at 4:30 PM.
