Daylight is breaking over Saugus Speedway and Tom Pacheco and his 4-year-old son, Alex, pull into the raceway parking lot, a sleek Italian-built kiddie go-kart in tow. The early-morning quiet is soon broken by the roar of engines as other kid drivers and their parents ready their racers. Team Pacheco goes through its pre-race inspections, checking the tire pressure, spark plugs, brakes, accelerator and steering.
