Williams Grove Speedway Kids Night This Saturday

Mechanicsburg, PA June 22, 2014

This Saturday Williams Grove Speedway presents the annual Kids Night. For one night the speedway infield becomes a carnival of fun for all children.

Prior to the races all Saturday Night Series race teams bring their cars to the infield.  Starting at 4:30 children and their parents can explore the infield region, meeting the drivers and having a close up view of all the racing equipment.

Drivers with the Saturday Night Series will be available to sign autographs, pose for photographs and answer any questions.  Many of the teams will be giving away items to the kids. 

There will be a dunk tank and moon bounce for the children.  Noah’s Ark will be on hand giving kids a chance to build their favorite animal. 

During the evening there will be prizes and giveaways.  One prize is a six foot racing banner signed by all the drivers with the Saturday Night Series.

At intermission the front stretch will be busy with kids racing their bicycles and big wheels.

Adding to the enjoyment will be three divisions of racing.  The Blazer’s Body Shop Super Sportsman, Credit Connection 358 Late Models, and Aquafun Pools Street Stocks will be in action.

All this fun for the low ticket price of five dollars for adults, children 12 and under free.

The pit gates will open early this week giving race teams time to prepare for the activities.  The pit gates open at 3:30 and spectator gates swing open at 4:30.
