CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (WKBW-TV) - This place knows how to put the "get up and go" in Go Carts! RPN Raceway at Walden Galleria caters to kids large and small with a need for speed. They have declared September 14th as National Go Cart Day.
According to Track Operations Manager Jeremie Soeman "On September 14th, 1956 Art Ingels, also known as the "father of go carting" released the first ever go cart to the public."
Art's cart was cool for it's time but the fancy chariots at RPM Raceway don't even guzzle gas-they are electric. You have to be at least 6 years old and forty-eight inches tall to hop into one of these hot rods.
There are special offers available and hourly raffles available on National Go Cart Day. You can find more information at their website.
