Nine Awesome Golf Cart Drag Races

For as long as we can remember, people have been buying golf carts, old and new, and modifying them into mini muscle cars. Many DIY'ers install motorcycle engines, lawnmower engines or any other engine they can find laying around to make their golf carts go faster.

Golf cart drag racing has become so popular that there is even a National Golf Kart Racing Association (NGKRA), which we proudly sponsor. If you want to see even more golf cart drag races, visit their site and check out their photos and videos. They list all of their upcoming events as well, if you'd like to see one of these crazy races in person.
