I recently met CJ at the local dog park.

CJ, it turns out, works for ProKART Indoor Racing in Maple Grove. I've never really Go-Karted before and don't know much about the sport, so I was super fascinated by what he had to share! With little State Fair-like bumper cars in mind, I couldn't believe when he told me their karts get up to 40mph!

Located just on the outskirts of Maple Grove -- it may as well be Rogers, CJ said -- the indoor/outdoor track is an easy drive, clocking in at less than an hour from St. Cloud.

Featuring state of the art equipment and group/meeting room facilities, ProKART Indoor Racing is great for family outings, birthday parties and work fun days alike! Experienced and beginner racers both are welcome. Driving sessions start as low as $18 (though additional license and driving scarf -- balaclava -- are also required at extra costs).
