Winter Outdoor Fun On Hold, Chase Some Indoor Thrills

The Lasco Press introduces a new Feature Series entitled "Exploring Michigan." Check out the first installment with a visit to Extreme Indoor Kart Racing in Clio.

Exploring Michigan: Extreme Indoor Kart Racing, Clio, MI — January 18, 2023

January in Michigan usually means skiing, sledding, ice fishing, and snowmobiling. Except when mother nature fails to cooperate. The winter of 2023, to date, has failed to provide sufficient cold, snow, and ice to fund those usual activities our state provides for outdoor thrill seekers.

Don’t despair. Just move the fun indoors.

In the first installment of The Lasco Press’s new featured series “Exploring Michigan,” we turn outdoor fun into some indoor thrills at Extreme Indoor Kart Racing in Clio.
