BROOKLYN, MI. Seven of IRL IndyCar's brightest stars came out for the MIS Media Go-Kart Challenge. They were available for pre-race interviews and AmericaJR.com spoke with four of the seven. They also participated in a mini-race with the media.

Each year, some of IRL's biggest names have participated in the Media Go-Kart Challenge. This year, the drivers were Marco Andretti, Buddy Rice, Helio Castroneves, Vitor Meira, Jeff Simmons, Kosuke Matsuura and Jeff Bucknum. I had the chance to speak with four of the seven drivers. Look for the pre-race interviews coming up later in this article.

What is the purpose of the Go-Kart Challenge? The media and the professional drivers are put to the test on this mini race track. It is all in fun to see who will win, the local media or the professional IRL IndyCar drivers. No matter who wins the race, it proved to be fun for all to enjoy.
