This weekend kicked off the first racing weekend out at the Big Sky Kartway. If you haven't seen these outlaw karts before you are in for a treat. These tough little karts can get up to 70 mph on the track, with accidents and spin-outs happening often. All participants have tons of safety equipment to insure no one gets hurt at such high speeds. The racers range in age from 5 to 60 plus. Over the weekend local nine year old races Zaya Smith won his kart division both Friday and Saturday, and he doesn't even have his drivers license!
