Washington Co. gears up for mini sprint car racing

Posted: Updated:

Imagine speeding around a short dirt track jammed inside of a small metal cage.

Keith Kaiser gets that experience and learns about the sport of mini sprint car racing.

These small powerful vehicles can tear up a 1/4 mile track drifting in the turns.

Keith's 6'4" frame barely fit in the cockpit.

His legs were crammed under the controls with just enough room to operate the pedals.

With speeds of more than 60 miles an hour on the short dirt track, racing action gets exciting with 20 cars speeding toward the checkered flag.

Washington County Fairgrounds hosts a night of racing on Friday, July 19th.

Keith Kaiser, Sterling Riggs and Mike Marshall are scheduled to race in an exhibition race.

Other featured races are trucks and hornets, modified compact cars with drivers that show no mercy.
