Kids will take center stage for the annual Kid’s Night foot races on the track during the intermission break. CMS volunteers and staff will conduct the foot races with social distancing measures for boy’s and girl’s divisions. Kids up to age 12 will receive a free hot dog and drink courtesy of promoters Earl and Susan Walls.

Donated items such as hero cards, business coupons, small toys and trinkets, race photos, and candy may be dropped off at this time or upon arrival at the track. Items most in need include electronic tablets, back packs, and school supplies for kids through age 12.
