SDKA Go-Kart Race At Qualcomm Stadium, March 21, 2010

        There is never a dull moment when SDKA (San Diego Karting Association) rolls into Qualcomm Stadium for a race. Incredibly enough, it seems that full fledged adults are the main demographic for racing go-karts, because I saw exactly 2 kids on this particular day. Grown-ups, some with salt & pepper hair were the ones tearing it up around the stadium, and I really do mean, TEARING IT UP!!! In the photo above, a tire flies dangerously through the air after being thrown from a go-kart at 40mph.

Push The Envelope

        There are two things that I personally like about SDKA go-kart races: The speed, and the photo-finishes. These races are really tight. The difference between first and last place is measured in seconds, not laps like NASCAR. These guys are warriors, and go-karts are their weapon.

Orange Cone Impact

        The driver on the left, in the photo above had the bad luck of having an orange cone thrown in front of him. I happened to snap a shot at the moment of impact, capturing his front fairing shatter.

    Nice job on the quality of your photos. You do a great job of capturing the action on film.

    My kart# is 195 shifter. Do you offer prints for sale?
