Petersburg’s go cart race heads indoors for one year

Petersburg’s Humpy 500 go-cart race will be scaled down, indoors and driverless this year due to the road reconstruction project on main street. The event will be held at the community gym this Saturday. It should be a little easier for local youngsters, in second through seventh grades, to build cars and compete this year, since the event will feature cars made from plastic salmon roe containers.

Those cars will be raced down a track in the gym for gift certificates. Registration is a 1 p.m. Saturday at the community gym. The parade of costumes happens after that and racing will start at 2 p.m. Joe Viechnicki spoke with employees of Petersburg Fisheries who are organizing the event, starting off with plant manager Patrick Wilson.
