Daniel Goddard: Go, Go, Go-Karts!

Daniel Goddard PicDaniel Goddard has a unique way of blowing off steam.

"Once you get bitten by the bug, it's over," The Young and the Restless star told Soap Opera Digest about go-kart racing. "I'm going out to the track and racing every week. The go-karts I'm driving go about 90 m.p.h., but when your butt's an inch-and-a-half off the ground and there's no suspension — so the car's completely stiff — you feel you're going 140. It's fantastic!"

Goddard continued:

"It's about the pursuit of human excellence and excelling at something where the minutest mistake can cause disaster. It's like meditation for me, because you must focus on every spilt-second that passes by; you can't think about anything else. I need that."

In the past, Winsor Harmon of The Bold and the Beautiful has also advocated the enjoyment of go-kart racing.

"It's a strong learning tool to teach you the only person in this world who can take away or ruin what you want is yourself," Goddard concluded. "There's no one else you can blame. It teaches responsibility and to be careful with your actions and impeccable with your choices.
