Who knew Kate secretly had a thing for race cars?! She shocks her kids by speeding down a racetrack and they loved it!

Kate Gosselin has a need for speed! The reality mom-of-eight took her kids on a whirlwind adventure on the June 20 episode of Kate Plus 8 and we got to see the daredevil within!

Kate teems up with Feed America and takes her eight little ones to a soup kitchen to give back. We think it’s great how important Kate finds charity to be and that she wants to instill these values in her kiddies.

The little ones bake cakes and despite some bickering and tears they had a memorable time.

But the ultimate moment came when Kate decided to check off an item on her bucket list. Kate stops off at a racetrack and a professional race car driver straps Kate in a race car and speeds away with her!

The kids are adorably screaming in amazement and think their mom is just the coolest. It was pretty awesome.

Kate’s kids even got a chance to ride in the race car with the driver. He took two by two and each time they would roll down the windows and shriek to their brothers and sisters.

But the best moment was when Kate got to drive her kids in the car. She took a few at a time and carefully went around the track. Even the kids said their mom was a safe driver.

Kate described the moment as something she’d always wanted to try. It was so great that the kids were able to experience it with her.

On the past few specials we’ve seen Kate experience a multitude of new things. We really think she needs to just have her own spinoff by herself.

Tune in to TLC for more Kate Plus 8!
