Memorial Go Kart was inspired by one young boys dream to build and race a go kart. Parker Klumb, 13, was killed by a hit and run driver in 2007 while riding his bike on Highway K in the Town of Addison.
His friends and community volunteers came together to fulfill Parker’s dream and the Memorial Go Kart was born. 2017 will mark the 10th season of Memorial Go Kart and today Parker’s dream is being fulfilled through hundreds of area youth.
