Kiddie rides 'take two' this Friday night at Scotia Speedworld

HALIFAX, NS - Due to rain cancelling Weekly Racing Series action and Kiddie Rides last Friday, Scotia Speedworld will run Kiddie Rides this Friday. Kiddie Rides Night is one of Scotia Speedworld's most popular events where kids get the unique opportunity to go for a ride in a racecar with their favorite 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 Weekly Racing Series divisions. First up are the Hydraulics Plus Bandoleros, also heating up the track will be the Coors Light Trucks, Dartmouth Dodge Sportsman and the ACE Lumbermart Thunder & Lightning cars. Admission is just $12.00 for Adults; Youth (8-15) are $2.00 and children 7 and under are free...all summer long! Tickets are available at the gate on race day (cash only).
