Kid’s Night is just around the corner for the speedway. Always a fan and kid favorite, Kid’s Night takes place on Saturday, August 3.

“This night is a huge night for kids ages three to twelve,” Barb Myers, Kid’s Night coordinator, said in a press release.

The event will feature foot races for age groups and the winners get a backpack filled with school supplies, coupons and memorabilia.

Everyone else gets a bag full of school supplies and various donated items.

There will also have drawings to give away bicycles.
