The smell of burnt rubber tires...the wave of a green flag...it's time for the Alexandria Grand Prix. This year will be the 4th running of the Alexandria Grand Prix Street go-kart race on August 22 & 23. The event is a 2 day event that brings over 3000 people and 100 drivers to Small Town USA for one of the largest go-kart racing events in Indiana. The event is sanctioned by the Southern Indiana Racing Association. The downtown streets will be transformed into a race track where drivers from all over the Midwest will be competing at speeds up to 75mph. There will be food vendors, non-food vendors, and exhibitions. This year the Indiana Pacers Fan Van will be at the event on Saturday. On Sunday will be an exhibition from the Mid-America Speedway. Several motorcycle riders will be performing some tricks for the spectators on Sunday. This is a free event. Come see the excitement of go-kart street racing at it's finest.
