NASCAR stars thrashing go karts

Kasey Kahne, Matt Crafton, Michael McDowell, Ryan Briscoe, Nelson Piquet Jr, Scott Speed, Jason Bowles, Justin Allgaier Brad Sweet, Colin Braun, Bubba Wallace........

These guys were out this past Wednesday night for the final round of the Mooresville Motorplex Racersites Cup Karting championship series. MMX is America's latest and greatest European calibre karting track, right in the heart of NASCAR country. The .70 mile track is freshly built and has been attracting all kinds of attention amongst the racing community.

Most of these guys can usually be found banging sheet-metal around Bristol or Talladega or even zipping around Indy at 225mph in the Indy500. But sometimes they just race for the sheer joy in it. Almost no money involved, no press events, no interviews. It's all for the glory of racing and winning. It was SO much fun to watch. And they were REALLY racing hard.

If you're in the region, definitely head up to Mooresville and give MMX a spin. The rental karts are plenty fast enough and the track is a joy to drive.
