Story Image

Five divisions will be in action tonight for Kids’ Night at Madison International Speedway. See the NASCAR Late Models, Dave’s White Rock Sportsman, Pellitteri Waste Systems Bandits plus the visiting Legends and Bandoleros.

All kids 11 and under will be admitted free and the great news doesn’t end there. Quest Industrial Kids’ Club will have exciting drawings taking place all night that will allow young fans to get on track as trophy presenters, assist with opening ceremonies, and more.

It gets even better tonight as during intermission when all children are invited onto the track for the annual $1000 Coin Scramble. Children will be divided up by age groups shortly before thousands of coins are poured on the track.

All kids are also invited to the Sue McKarns Playground, the best short track play area in the United States. Racing also takes place at the Capital Speedway Slot Car track where kids can race all night for just $5.00.

Jeremy Miller leads the points race in the very competitive NASCAR Late Models with four different drivers winning features so far this year. Robert Hansberry Jr., who recently became the winningest Sportsman driver since the track reopened in 1992, leads the way in the Dave’s White Rock Sportsman chase for the championship. Dave Schmidt has won two of the three races in the Pellitteri Waste Systems Bandits and is the current point leader. Aaron Moyer and Max McNamara have combined for 43 wins at Madison in the Legends division and will be here tonight. Alex Hartwig was the winner for the Bandoleros in June as this group of drivers between the ages of 8-12 makes their second of three visits this summer.

Pit gates open today at 3:30 with practice at 5:00, grandstands open at 6:00, qualifying at 6:15 and racing at 7:30. Adult admission is $12.00 / Whelen Heroes and Seniors are $10.00 / Students 12-17 are $8.00 and Kids 11 and under are free. A “Family” ticket that includes up to two adults and four students is just $30.00 and can save you as much as $26.00.

See you tonight at Madison International Speedway, a family owned and operated racing facility located on Sunrise Road just south of Highway 138 two miles east of Oregon.
