PORTLAND, Ore. - When the green flag flies, it pedal-to-the-metal for this weeks little All-Stars as they circle the track at the Alpenrose dairy in their midget sprint cars.

Just like the big-time drivers, there's lots of race action as the lawnmower-powered machines scrap back and forth for the lead.

One crash sends a car onto its top, but its OK, these drivers, some as young as 5 years old, are fully protected by roll cages, helmets and safety restraints.

The crashed driver said he cried a bit but then was ready to get back onto the track.

In the end, it's a fast and furious duel as two drivers exchange the lead back and forth through each tight corner on the small track.

But there can only be one winner, and this weeks little All-Star gets to circle the track, checkered flag in hand.
