Art Ingels (sometimes misspelled as Ingles) is known as 'the father of karting'.

In 1956, while he was a race car builder at Kurtis Kraft, a famous builder of Indy race cars during the 1950s, he assembled the first Go-Kart in history out of scrap metal and a surplus West Bend Company two-stroke cycle engine. It was built in his two-car garage in Echo Park (now FIX Coffee Co), and tested in the Rose Bowl parking lot, where it gained hundreds of enthusiasts.
