I agree with TJ’s initial reaction; this show is an anti-promotion for karting. Let’s see, in the first 20 seconds the first two things they emphasize are A.) how expensive karting is, and B.) how dangerous it is, complete with footage of a flipping kart. Follow that up with clownish loud mouths obnoxiously promoting their kids and you get a lovely picture of our sport. All I can say is I’m glad this show wasn’t around when we decided to make the jump to outdoor karting.

That said, it’s a reality show, which means its purpose is to make the viewers feel better about themselves¬† because they aren’t part of the freak show on tv. It’s not there to promote its subject material.
