It’s all but a fact -- compared to moms, dads get the short end of the stick when it comes to their designated day of the year. Not only are their cheap kids spending less money on dear old dad, but there’s also a 75 percent chance they’re unwrapping another boring wrench, ugly tie, or outdated DVD instead of something fun, exciting, and filled with smoky bacon.

This Father’s Day takes a turn for the unexpected with an exhilarating morning of go-kart racing paired with chowing down at the 3rd Annual Father’s Day Man Brunch at Octane Raceway, 317 South 48th Street, Phoenix’s largest indoor kart racing venue.

Suit up and hit the quarter mile track for 12 to 16 laps of high speed (45 mph) driving and then chow down on a hot breakfast of bacon and waffles with all the fixings.
