    Off and on for the last 40+ years they have shut down the town of Commercial Point for Go Kart Races. Growing up our house was on the start/finish line. Memories of cookouts and friends and family from all over coming to watch the races are great. That smell of alcohol burning is great!!

    They are this weekend, today and tomorrow. They are professional Go Kart drivers from all over the US. As far as California.

    They go 60-70mph down the strait aways and alot of wrecks in the corners. I will be there this weekend reliving the memories from my childhood. If anyone wants to come out would love to meet up with ya.

    I think today is the qualifing and practices start at 11 or 12.

    Tomorrow are the races, for the $$$. That is when the action heats up.

    Sounds like a good time Tea! Heck I might have been up for coming up there to watch them with you. But seeing as I'm about 1000 miles from you right at the moment, I ain't going to be able to make it. Be sure to post up pics when you get back.
