I have bad news and good news: which do you want first? (Waits patiently) Okay fine, the bad news is our annual pre-Detroit Auto Show karting tournament at Kart2Kart in Sterling Heights is now all full up. Unless some folks who RSVP’d don’t show, you can’t race. But come hang out anyway!

The good news is our friends at Kart2Kart have something special in store for everyone: a pit bike race starring the guys from MI Super Moto on the track before the gauntlet gets thrown down. The bike event goes between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday (that’s tomorrow, just so we’re clear.) See what I mean here:

God, that looks fun. I may have to talk my way into it. Yes, I can ride a motorcycle! How hard can it be?
