Crazy Racing Parents Represent!

Not to be outdone by Toddlers and Tiaras, Dance Moms, Master Chef Junior,  and Friday Night Tikes; TruTV has been advertising their new show Kart Life where we will now be able to watch obsessive parents try to make their kid the next big driver for NASCAR/IndyCar/Formula 1, through youth go-karting leagues.

The commercials are already full of showing the positive aspects of these kids and their "hobby" with their parents, you know... the crashes, and yelling and carnage… yet somehow maybe still not as much as Dance Moms. I don’t know how these shows make it this long and how it’s a growing market but I suppose if we’re going to film the Hindenburg going down in flames, people are going to watch it right?

Will you watch, what do you think? How long before we see the first kid cry... hell how long before we see the first parent cry, which comes first? How long before someone loses their shit over bad officiating? And of course... chances any kid on this show makes it to the pro level, 1 in 10,000, 1 in 1,000,000?
