Family Fun this Friday at Madison

Story Image

This Friday at Madison International Speedway is Union 464 Kids’ Night with exciting racing action in four divisions plus fun for the whole family featuring bicycle, big wheel, and power wheel racing for the kids. There will be bike giveaways during the night and admission is free for all kids 11 and under.

Kids are invited to bring their own two, three, or four wheelers down to the track for an opportunity to race. This long-standing tradition at Madison is all about kids having fun. The young fans can also register for a chance to win one of many brand new bikes that will be given away.

Free admission for the kids, bike races on the track, a chance to win a new bike, opportunities to ride in the pace truck…all adds up to a great night of affordable family fun.

Only three feature events remain on the schedule for our NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series competitors with action in the NASCAR Late Models, Dave’s White Rock MISfitz, Pellitteri Waste Systems Bandits, and Roto Rooter 6Shooters.

Defending champion Zack Riddle is the current point leader in the NASCAR Late Models and has won six features so far this year. Following Riddle in the top five are Bobby Wilberg, Shaun Scheel, Stephen Scheel, and Rusty Hansen. The winner of the Late Model feature will take home $1000 thanks to Union 464.

The race for the championship in the Dave’s White Rock MISfitz is tight with Ray Hellenbrand on top of the standings followed closely by Mason Hellenbrand and Rick Coppernoll.

Point leader Nick Schmidt has won three straight track championships in the Pellitteri Waste Systems Bandits and has six feature wins this season with Bart Brockmann and Nick Newton in hot pursuit. Track officials have announced that there will be free pit passes for Bandit competitors this week thanks to Pellitteri Waste Systems.

The Roto Rooter 6Shooters is a very affordable and fun entry level division that has built up a strong fan following. This division does not maintain point standings to keep the focus on fun.
