DQ Kids’ Day…A Little Something for Everyone

Fredericton N.B. – Speedway 660 hosted a full day of excitement for race fans of all ages. The excitement started well before the races, as drivers were ready for the opportunity to meet race fans at the pre-race autograph session in the pits.  Drivers took some time out from working on their cars to meet their race fans, hand out treats and pictures for the youngsters.   Drivers autographed everything from pictures, books, flags, and arms (yes arms!).  The youngsters also had the opportunity to fill their sweet tooth during intermission when they went trackside and filled up on candy with the legendary candy scramble. This is always a huge success with our young race fans. Other activities for our young race fans included bouncy castles from GO GO Gymnastics, face painting and fan giveaways.  Speedway the Moose and Curly Cue, the DQ mascot, were also on hand to meet and greet race fans.
