You folks are posting some really good points. Thank you.
I noticed that no one so far has addressed the “Bad-Day-at-the-Track”. We all have them. Something breaks on your kart, you have an attention lapse and crash, or get involved in someone elses crash, you get DQ’ed for a very small “Letter of the law” infraction that you didn’t even realize was there, etc, etc.
How do you deal with that ? What makes you choose which division of karting to take part in ? Being a Steve Kinser fan might make you choose Speedway karting. Being a F-1 fan might make you choose Sprint racing. Being a NASCAR fan or LeMans fan might help you to choose Road Racing.
Or, whichever track is closest to home might be your choice.
thanks again, MC
