After a safety seminar, you'll shimmy into a go-kart with a 5.5-horsepower engine, slick racing tires, and hydraulic brakes. When the gun goes off, you'll blast down a 200-foot straightaway, hugging six varying corners while achieving a maximum speed of 35 miles per hour. Each race lasts eight minutes. Open races are held daily, though customers should call ahead to ensure that Kart 2 Kart has no special events or races scheduled.

Kart 2 Kart's rates fluctuate throughout the week.

The 300-foot straightaway comes to an end in one of six wheel-testing curves. The Honda 6.5-horsepower engine hums in anticipation. The moment foot touches pedal, hydraulic brakes give their answer and the racing wheels cling to the textured concrete as the go-kart deftly whips through the turn. Coming up on the end of an eight-minute streak of adrenaline, racers zip past the final stretch of the 1/5-mile race track, tearing ahead of each other as the computerized timing system clocks each score to fuel future bragging rights and rematch challenges.

From Kart 2 Kart's café and bar, applause rises as family, friends, and opponents sizing up the competition send their appreciation down to the track, which they've been watching as they nosh on a selection of snacks and beverages. Juniors, meanwhile, wait their turn to hit the blacktop in age-appropriate Formula-K karts. Before strapping in, all racers receive instruction and a safety lesson, during which they learn how to operate the equipment, then strive to set records that can earn them a spot on the website's scoreboard.
