If it’s a Wednesday summer night in Grand Forks, there is a good chance go-karts are racing at the Forks Karting Association’s eighth-mile track on the county fairgrounds. There were 51 go-karts racing on Wednesday night at the track, making for a busy night on the fairgrounds as it also was the opening day of the Greater Grand Forks Fair and Exhibition.

Racers of all ages competed in the various go-kart divisions at the track. Many of the younger drivers, however, have aspirations of some day moving next door to River Cities Speedway, where sprints, late models, modifieds and streets race on a weekly basis.
