A reader writes, Dear AR1.com, excellent article on Kids don't care about cars anymore
. No wonder attendance and TV ratings are down pretty much across the board. When are the people running this sport going to take their heads out of the sand and do something about it. I think you are right, the only solution is to get go-kart racing on par with other stick-and-ball sports in schools in this country. Go-karts, if mass produced to a spec for all schools can be had for a very low cost. I like your idea of parking lot races in high school and college with each school hosting events in a rotating fashion. Who is going to get this off the ground? Joe Beeber
Dear Joe, Good question. It's going to take a concerted effort. Mark C.
