The maiden pre race pit tour for Kids Club members proved fun for young and old alike!  Kids entered the pits by the grandstands and drove clear thru to the end.  The bus made stops at the racing haulers of Jeremy Christians and Jeff Schmuhl, they hopped on the bus handing out hot shots & candy.  The kids had a few questions for the drivers, with the most priceless being “when did you become so awesome”, directed to Jeremy!  Kids Club activities are made possibly by; Lamers Bus Lines, Vic’s Auto Sales & Service, Chippy’s Popcorn Creations, Laatsch Title Abstract & McDonalds.  Next week the tour will be stopping by the modified of Matt Rechek and Grand National of Jay Schaalma.  Bus leaves the front gate at 4:20 so get to the track early!
