This Saturday night, Pepsi brings you Kids Night presented by DOC X.
Kids Night at Rockford Speedway means Kids ages 11 and under get in
FREE to the races and along with free admission for Kids, there’s
going to be some extra fun on tap for the kids.
Throughout the night, Kids are welcome to take part in ‘Speedway Trick
or Treat.’ Once the main gates open, keep an eye out for all the
‘treats’ in the concourse area. It may be at one of the concession
stands, or maybe in the souvenir stand or elsewhere, but kids will
have the chance to fill their pockets with various ‘treats’ in various
places. Then, after the races are done, the Pit Area will open and the
drivers and race teams will also participate in Speedway Trick or
Treat. Drivers will be on hand to sign autographs and to hand out all
sorts of treats. It’s sure to be a fun night, so make sure you bring
the kids this Saturday.
Also this Saturday night, Jeff Jones Racing and Kyle Mohan Racing are
taking over Rockford with DOC X!
The two well known Drift Car Racers will begin their day at 11 AM at
Beef-A-Roo (6380 E. Riverside, Loves Park, IL). Stop by to get an
autograph, check out their Formula Drift cars up close, hang out with
104.9 The X, and eat delicious food.
The Drink DOC Crew then moves to the Speedway starting at 5 PM. Fans
are invited to meet and greet the drivers, grab some free DOC and
watch Jeff and Kyle kill some tires! Jeff and Kyle will be hitting the
track around 6:30 PM and again during intermission.
Racing on Pepsi Kids Night includes the return of the Stanley Steemer
NASCAR Late Models plus the Bargain Hunter Sportsman, Miller Lite
American Short Trackers and Original Sixers. Grandstands open at 5 PM,
with the show set to begin at 7:07 PM. Adult admission is $12, with
Kids 11 and under admitted FREE! Don’t miss Pepsi Kids Night presented
by DOC X this Saturday night!
