Lil racers LLC is a nonprofit organization that supplies power wheels for children three to ten years old to compete in county races and events.

“We are, just here to provide pretty much a community service for the young kids in, local surrounding areas, providing, you know, power wheels for kids that can’t afford them” said Dakota Orlowski, owner of Lil Racers LLC.

Lil racers LLC has made power wheels accessible on a first come first serve basis to kids competing in local county fairs as well as the Alpena Bump N’ Run.

“We started developing it late last year. Me and my wife, Nicole. We took our daughter’s power wheels to the, bumper run in Alpena last year, and nobody else had brought one. So, I kind of we kind of got together and made it a promise that we would never let it happen again. Because she wasn’t able to race, because she was the only one to bring one” said Orlowski.

They currently have accumulated 15 units of power wheels and are looking to expand their collection. They are also seeking donations of helmets and battery chargers.

“These are all powered by 18 volt Milwaukee drill batteries. they’re all powered the same way with all the same parts, just to give the kids the same chance at a race” said Orlowski.

The next Lil Racers event will be on July 13th at Alpena Cycle Club’s Bump N’ Run. If interested in making a donation or keeping up with their events, you can check out Lil Racers LLC on Facebook.
