Go-kart kickoff

The Runestone Go-Kart Association kicked off the 2014 season with the racers showing off their go-karts at the mall in Alexandria recently. Shoppers were asked to vote for the best looking kart between 5-7 p.m. on April 18. Jack Koranda (above) brought home the first-place trophy for the best looking kart, while Karter Reents and Turner Haar were second and third, respectively, in the voting. The go-kart season starts on May 2 with a test and tune before the May 3 opener when racing will begin at 1 p.m. May 9 is the Friday opening points night. Visit for more information. (Contributed)
