Track Release/Photos by McCarthy Photographic
(Halifax, NS – June 28, 2017) SCHOOLS OUT! – And kids get to take the front seat at Scotia Speedworld this Friday for Kiddie Rides Night! Gather up the kids and kick-off your Canada Day weekend with one of Scotia Speedworld’s most popular events – Kiddie Rides, where kids get the unique opportunity to go for a ride in a racecar with their favourite driver! Kiddie Rides get underway at 7:00 pm sharp so be sure to get there early. Grandstand gates open at 5:00 PM.
The format for Kiddie Rides is simple and safe. Drivers bring their cars to the front stretch and park. Once all engines are stopped, the grandstand gate is opened and children come onto the track and climb into their favorite car. When all children are safely in the cars the drivers are led around the track at a safe speed by the pace car. After a few laps, the cars are stopped; the children climb out and proceed back to their seats in the grandstand to enjoy the rest of the night’s events.
Following Kiddie Rides fans will enjoy great racing action from five CARSTAR Weekly Racing Series divisions. First up are the Hydraulics Plus Bandoleros, also heating up the track will be the Pulse Heavy Duty Trucks, Affordable Fuels Sportsman and the Toursec Thunder & Lightning cars.
Joining track announcer Tim Terry this week as co-host for Kiddie Night is Strictly Hydraulics Legend driver Danny Harvey. Harvey has a vast racing resume over two decades of racing at Scotia Speedworld and will bring a wealth of knowledge to the microphone on Friday night. Harvey currently sits fifth in points in the Strictly Hydraulics Legend point standings.
Admission is just $15.00 for Adults; Youth (8-15) are $5.00 and children 7 and under are free…all summer long! Tickets are available at the gate on race day (cash only).
