Thrill seekers are excited about the 2nd Annual X-Derby in Marseilles.

For $30 you can ride in a so-called “gravity kart” down the Rutland Street hill Saturday, August 23. You’ll reach speeds of 35 miles per hour, go down a 10-story decline and steer through a couple blind turns. Your guaranteed at least two trips and can win a trophy if you have the best time.

Part of the proceeds go to the Marseilles Rotary Club. You can sign up for the X-Derby the day of the races.
