Craziest Mini NASCAR Backyard Go Kart Race! What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

We spent a disproportionate amount of time and money building the mini Kevin Harvick yard kart and getting it ready for the Backyard 400 race in Indianapolis. These are some 200+lb adults jammed into yard kart go karts designed for kids. Some modified, some not. Great idea or recipe for disaster? You decide...

      Stapleton42, You had a great ride, but the wrong attitude. Here's the problem with a race like that. Half the guys are just there to have fun and don't care about the results! The other half are like you! They are competitive and are trying their best to win. The two types should NOT be in the same class, even if one of those classes only have 4-5 entries. It's much better than someone in one group ruining it for someone in the other! You see, the "fun class" guys honesty believe that the competitive guys take it WAY to seriously! They won't think twice about shutting the door on you and running you into a hay bail! Just like at a rental track! They think thats fun! Same with cutting corners! What I do is race the competitive drivers and get by the fun drivers as fast as I can and not worry about racing them clean. I love competitive racing, but have no time for drivers who don't care about your equipment or what you're trying to accomplish. One more bit of advice! In a race like that, and a track that skinny, you just can't worry about staying on the asphalt! Survival is #1... Fastest and consistent lap times is #2. Knocking down laps any way you can is imperative. You must put yourself on a level playing field or you don't have a chance no matter how fast your car is! Good luck 👍

    If they're that desperate to have a Cavalier, they're doing it wrong. Travis might need to add some curbs to keep people in check. I suspect the super narrow track was intended to keep things tame, but it seems to have backfired. Hope the fun parts outweighed the ending for you. It was pretty entertaining to watch.

    I can't help but think that the track width was largely to blame for the incidents and track cutting. There's no excuse for wrecking people to pass, but I do understand the frustration and desperation that sinks in when you only have one legitimate chance to overtake per lap. I think it'd be cool to find another event like this, with a better prepared track

  • G Men2121
    G Men2121

    Looks like a fun track, but needs to be widened to a 2 cart wide setup to give people better passing spots. And enforce a deduction penalty if people like some of those Indy carts cut the track. If 2 tires r off the track, its fine, but if all 4 are clearly off course, deduct a few points or do a stop and go like in nascar.

  • BonnevilleTB7
    BonnevilleTB7

    I blame the organisers to a large degree in that they did no ‘tech inspection’, the track was too narrow,they did not make the rules clear enough during driver’s briefing and the marshalling was dreadful. I feel you drove well in your first race, managing the kart’s gearing issue etc. However, in the last race of the day your kart was totally outpaced by the ‘indycar replicas’ as well as many of their drivers cutting corners at every opportunity. I think you are wise to compete with like minded people at a well run, competitive and above all safe venue. Good luck. Steve UK 🇬🇧

    This event is something to build off of and learn from for the racers and the event coordinators. Tech inspection, rules and track modifications added and this could be a really well refined experience that still has all the grit you still want out of racing go carts. This video is a ton of fun to watch and IMO well worth the adventure and time to film. Well done Stapleton!

    I'm thinking that whoever made and designed the track didn't think about the problems that are going to happen this track should have been made at least three and a half cars wide then this would have been a great track but also they should have put some heavy Banks on all the turns great idea bad design it was fun to watch

  • DaveSKI

    A simple way to fix the corner cutting issue is to penalize someone if all four wheels cut the asphalt, as long as you still have a wheel on the asphalt you're good. I guess you really can't monitor all that much in a backyard go kart race

    • Matt Goelz
      Matt Goelz

      @Chris Palmer yup, a line of hay bales extending off the apex of each corner would solve it and still allow for on the grass passes on the straight bits of track

      put some hay bails on the grass stop them going further than you want

  • TheDuckumz

    Once again im late to the party, coulda sworn i was subscribed. Travis is a legend for putting on something like this, if there was a class my old dirt speedway kart could compete in i would seriously be tempted. Doubt they would allow a full blown alcohol race kart out there though. Either way looks fun as hell! As far as racing goes though, we always kept it clean and i actually enjoyed the inverted starts because it gave me people to chase and passing action. Running in the front the whole race was boring in my opinion. The grass passes were some bs though, needs to be like 2 1/2 kart widths so you have room to pass...

  • Stanley Flory
    Stanley Flory

    Mitchell, you did some really good driving in your "stock car class", showing real driving skill! Inverting that field for the final race was a big mistake for a track that was this tight and narrow! Hope they learn from this, and make it better next time! The suspension in a go-kart is tire pressure, period! Getting that right is important! Having different size sprockets for the motor and axel are a must, to dial in a track! I used to race karts in the late 60's! Go-Kart 500 frame, 7 hp McCulloch racing engine, 2 carbs, putting out around 12 hp! Straight chain drive, no clutch, 0 to 60 in 2.5 seconds!

    This really looked like a great time with some cool people. If this was the first year hopefully next year the course is wide enough for 2 carts the whole way. And the sketchy carts aren't allowed with the nice ones. Really enjoyed watching though you guys did a great job filming the event!

  • BlackDeath
    BlackDeath

    30:49 Anytime both wheels (both sides) of the car cross over a track limit that's a track cut. In sanctioned racing if you gained time or passed someone doing that you may get a warning, do it a 2nd time and likely be forced to serve a time penalty. If no position or time was gained (maybe you're avoiding a crash) no warning - no penalty typically (its usually at the discretion of the track marshal).

    Good racing chief. Love your mentality of safety and the consideration of others as well as the understanding of how your kart works. This was the first video of your channel I had watched but confident you are an excellent racer. Only have raced mainly rental kart leagues but have been considering to buy my own kart and give it a go. Hope your kart is able to be fixed, may the flipped racer be okay, and may you get yourself a massive win. Have a good one!!

    that looked like fun, and yes cutting the corner like that is cheating. That dingbat running others off the track is probably the same kinda guy that pit manouvers drivers he can't pass at spectator drag events. That type of unsportsman like behavior shouldn't be tolerated.

    All I could think while watching this was how much fun I would've had if I had a go kart that looked like a nascar car when I was a kid. I bet it's still awesome as an adult, one of my favorite paint schemes too. The Harvick 29 is awesome! He was always my second favorite behind Jeff Gordon and now he is my favorite current driver.

    The track needs to be 2 lanes all the way around and then a dq if you get more than 2 tires of the track in the corners because if there's 2 lanes available all the way around then the only reason you have 4 wheels off is to cut the corner. Still looks like a blast either way!

    I just found this channel a couple days ago. And I can't stop laughing at this. We just done go kart racing at autobhan in bham al. And I wasn't about to let my dad beat me. Just stayed on the gas, bounced off the walls and still won. Next morning my back was bruised, my knee from hitting the steering wheel. The kids carts went 25mph and adults 55. Best place to have birthday parties. The second race dude wasn't cool. He shouldn't be allowed back honestly

      To be honest on qualification day I looked at those trees and said, someone is going to eat one! Not sure if cutting trees down there is as regulated as here in OZ , but a track widening into the widow maker is a must. Also the pole line cutting was clear non respect to race craft in that corner.. it needed t be hay-bailed. All on all great grass roots racing! As much as content maker is a tad bitter, who isn’t when rubbing is racing that doesn’t go your way!

    That was BS! #1, inverted starts suck, but even more so, they should have kept the stock-bodied cars and indy-bodied cars separate, and yeah, that stroke WAS cheating. #2, they should have hay-bailed that corner to prevent that corner-cutting. Overall, you did pretty damn well in my opinion. With lack of rules, or at least none looking like they're being enforced, it was more than even Captain Chaos would have embraced!!! Your car looked great, BTW! Good job, you two!!! 👍👍

    Doing events like this are absolutely a blast. I went to some backyard dirt tracks and totally enjoyed myself. All rules are off. I ran some cheated up motors.Thanks. Funny.

      @Jim Maxson Now we build them to run on E-85 You talk about a boost... But they burn a lot more fuel...

      @Kenny Velez I ran cheated up motors on alcohol, big carburetors, ignition. Our outings had guidelines. But nobody checked. I know nothing about these guys and could care less what they ran anyway. Was just a general statement. And what I meant was all rules were off, was the driving part anything goes. For instance dumping guys passing on the grass. whatever

      How are they "cheated up motors" if there wasn't any rules? Inquire Minds Want to Know,,,

    That was really cool sorry some people thought winning a cavalier was that important I owed several of them and they were very dependable but not worth doing all that to win one. Great video Michael and your pit crew was awesome

    That looks like a ton of fun. Generally in professional racing it’s the passing cars responsibility to make a clean pass.

    1:12- I'm recalling seeing one of these Z24's purchased new off the lot in 1990, and later that same evening, the owner thought he'd be Johnny Race Car Driver and tried doing an E-brake slide...at over 70mph. Needless to say, it was wadded up into a ball, with the owner getting an all-expenses-paid-by-him trip to the local E.R....and insurance refused to pay for the car. Gawd, what a turd of an automobile. In related news, my wife (then girlfriend) ended up with a brand-new 1990 regular Cavalier with a 4-banger and automatic...and dealer-added air conditioning. The car drove off the lot with what sounded like a 16-pound bowling ball rolling across the nose of the car whenever you did left or right hand turns, turns out that there were a grand total of 47 bolts either loose, stripped, or missing entirely in or around the front suspension...on a car with 18 miles on it. It also got big block chevy-like fuel mileage with the dealer-added A/C turned on, I mean maybe 8mpg at best. The wife/girlfriend allowed it to go back to her parents, because they were the ones that insisted on her buying it (I heavily suggested she get a Camry instead, as they actually...worked, but her idiot father was a diehard GM guy, never mind two GMC trucks in a row of his were freaking lemons, he couldn't keep a transmission in either one), and the car spent the next 10 or so years suffering breakdown after breakdown, almost as if the car were cursed. It's currently in a ravine behind her parents' home, after it sat for a year and rats ate every bit of wiring out front under the hood (there wasn't even 6 inches of wiring left anywhere...it was all gone).

    This gave me an idea. Go kart racing on closed or abandoned golf courses with paved/ concrete paths.

      Cart paths would be wider 😂

    I have a suggestion for Travis. Split it into two races, open wheel karts and full body karts. either that, or do it like IMSA does. put all the indycars together ahead of the slower stock cars and grid them by class... that way things are a bit fairer and if those indycar guys want to cut 116 ft to the inside of a turn or race like idiots they can do so amongst themselves without affecting the stock car race...

    Oh. My. Gosh. My dreams of doing a race like this when I was in Grade 3 have come true! I used to draw track concepts for hours.
