This Friday nights popular Family Autograph-Backpack Giveaway has been moved to the Speedway’s go-kart track and will take place before the racing action begins. Race cars and go-karts will be lined up around the go-kart track behind the grandstands, where fans can get an
up close look at all the racing machines as well as chat with their favorite drivers. Drivers will be signing autographs, handing out driver cards, candy and some great giveaways.
Can-Am’s 2nd annual Backpack Giveaway will also take place at the same time, all kids in
attendance will receive a free backpack, while supplies last. Drivers, fans and sponsors have donated backpacks, many filled with school supplies and other items. Last year over 200 backpacks were handed out and management hopes to exceed last years numbers.
Children’s Miracle Network will also be on hand with some Miracle Kids in attendance enjoying a night at the races. CMN will be set up behind the grandstands to chat with fans about their great program and track owner Tyler Bartlett will donate $1 from every paid adult admission to CMN.
Family Autograph-Backpack Giveaway will begin at 6:15 and will go until 7:00, when the cars will return to the pit area and get ready for an exciting night of dirt track racing. Gates will open at 5:00 with the first green flag waving at 7:30, follow us on Facebook at Can-Am Speedway or call the speedway office at 315-876-3478.
