WEST FARGO, N.D. -

Start your engines, the Red River Kart Club holds their Season Finale at the Red River Valley Fairgrounds.

Getting these kids on the track is about much more than having fun.
 
"They're not a standard Thunder Road rental kart," said RRKC Board Member Scott Sailer.
 
These young speedsters are learning about good sportsmanship, and the fundamentals of racing.
 
"To teach them how to race, and race cleanly so that when they get older and move on to a bigger car and move up to these dirt tracks in the area...that they know what to do," said Sailer.
 
After a whole summer competition, racers of all ages are revving up for the season finale.
 
"We start em off at age five, and they can be on up to age 60, 70, whatever," Sailer explained.
 
"It's pretty cool, you gain a lot of experience on the track," said 4th Grade Racer Cole Greseth.
 
"It's a really good group of people to be around," said Cole's dad, Matt Greseth of Harwood.
 
The Greseth family has a long history on the tarmac.

Now the gears of this tradition are being shifted down to the next generation.

Cole's dad Matt raced for 10 years.
 
"I traded the race car for kids and then Cole started racing a couple years ago, and it's been a lot of fun," said Greseth. "It's probably more fun watching him race than racing myself."
 
It's experience the club says will stick with them for the rest of their lives.
 
"The kids that will come out of the kart club are probably gonna be the best racers in the area, you give them about 10 or 15 years," said Sailer.
 
And it's not just for kids. The Red River Kart Club has programs for adults and children. To find out how you can get involved, click here.
