Joliet, Ill. – November 21, 2011 –
For the first time ever, Chicagoland Speedway is kicking off the holiday season with an afternoon of holiday festivities and family fun. Teaming up with Toys for Tots and the Joliet Fire Department, Santa Claus will visit Chicagoland Speedway on Saturday, December 10 from noon – 4:00 p.m. With the donation of a new, unwrapped gift to Toys for Tots, families can get their photo taken with Santa Claus in Gatorade Victory Lane. In lieu of donating a toy, families can donate $10 to Toys for Tots.
“We are thrilled to support Toys for Tots and welcome Santa Claus to Chicagoland Speedway this December,” said track president, Scott Paddock. “We look forward to kicking off this holiday season by celebrating with our fans while giving back to local community. This will be a fun and memorable afternoon for all ages.”
After getting their photo taken, children can warm up in Chicagoland Speedway’s Media Center and decorate picture frames to take home or hang up at the Speedway. Parents can also sign their kids up for Kids Club!, Chicagoland Speedway’s exclusive club for kids 12 years of age and younger, free of charge. The Joliet Fire Department will also be onsite providing fire safety tips, and the Joliet Forest Preserve will be providing nature arts and crafts.
Guests should enter through Gate 5 off Laraway Road, leading directly into the Infield. Parking will be located to the right in between the garages. Gates will open promptly at noon.
