Plot Synopsis

KART LIFE is a one-hour reality series that follows a group of kart-racing kids and their pit-crew parents, as they travel across America in pursuit of the racing holy grail: a national ranking and a shot at becoming a pro driver. These karting warriors whiz 70 miles per hour through hair-pin turns, while navigating a sport fraught with danger, intense rivalries and outrageous family drama. The premiere episode finds the karting families in South Bend, IN, where a dirty driving controversy takes center stage. Young Dylan Tavella gives his all on the track, but when the aggressive tactics of rival Gio Bromante jeopardize Dylan's safety and competitive standing, the Tavellas lose their cool in a big way. Top-ranked prospect Sasha Brun-Wibaux is out to prove that girls can hold their own on the track against the boys, until a nasty crash thwarts her chances for victory. Plus, rock-star driver David Malukas shows why he's considered the next in line for pro-racing stardom. Other drivers include Devin Boutot, Savannah Fitzgerald, Zach Holden, Brandon Lemke, Sam Mayer, JP Southern Jr., and Jason Welage.
On Wednesday, April 8, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT, truTV premiered the season finale of KART LIFE. In the season ender, "Redemption Road," the season peaks with a grueling 200-lap relay worth $10,000. Sasha is desperate for a miracle, the Southerns are out for blood, Phil Tavella agonizes over Dylan's focus on the track, and Brandon Lemke vows to unseat David Malukas.
