TruTv has aired a new show called Kart Life. Thirty minutes into the show I was still in shock on what I was watching. Kids as young as 8 years old racing go-karts as fast as 70MPH. This competitive docu-series filled with drama on and off the track, shows how serious the world of Go-Karting is. I was even more shocked when I learned that one family spends as much as $5000 on a weekend of racing while another family can spend $225,000 a year.
I know life is about taking risks but...sheeeesh, would you allow for your son/daughter to participate in this type of competitive racing?
