Thousands of attendees will enjoy a spectacular evening that features dozens of food vendors, live music, and a kids zone with midway style games and attractions.  While the kids play, guests are encouraged to explore the Speedway and get their hearts racing as they feel the excitement of where hundreds of races have been held throughout the years.
