Go-kart racing has taken over the LaRue County Fairgrounds on Saturday nights.
Vernon and Lana Atwood operate the 210 Motorsports Track.
Fair board treasurer Snookie Morrison and president Jimmie Engle were “looking for someone to promote and oversee the track, so they gave me a call and we sat down and got everything together,” said Vernon.
Vernon has an extensive racing background, winning more than 300 feature go-kart races. His dream has been to open his own track.
