An 11-year-old is hoping to make Perry Hall proud next week as he tries to become a national champion in go-kart racing.
While go-kart racing hasnt gained a lot of attention in Maryland, it is tradition in Matt Miller's family that has been passed on through generations.
Matt has been racing since age five and last year he inched out 12-year-olds to finish second in the national point standings. But this year, he has eyes on the main prize.
Matt's dad, Brian, who also grew up racing, spends hours a night making sure his son's kart is race ready.
Both hope to win the title in the national championship in Jacksonville, Florida next week
