Joliet, Ill. – March 6, 2015 – The Easter Bunny and Dash, Chicagoland Speedway’s cheetah mascot, will once again be visiting the Speedway on Saturday, March 21, for the fourth annual Easter Egg Dash Presented by Julie, Inc. This event will take place from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and guests should enter through Gate 5 off Laraway Road and continue through the tunnel directly into the Infield.  A $3 donation per child will be required upon entry to benefit R.A.C.E., Chicagoland Speedway and Route 66 Raceway’s nonprofit foundation. 

The Easter Egg Dash will take on a slightly different format than in years past, with one large hunt beginning at noon (weather permitting). That hunt will be split up among multiple age groups, with areas designated for children 1-4, 5-8 and 9-12 in the infield campgrounds.

In addition to the Easter Egg Dash and activities taking place in the Media Center, the Easter Bunny and Dash will also be available for pictures in Gatorade Victory Lane. Chicagoland Speedway will have a photographer taking photos, or guests may bring their own camera. All photographs taken by the Chicagoland Speedway photographer will be made available online only following the event.

This year’s Easter Egg Dash is full of exciting guests, beginning with the Joliet Fire Department and their participation in the Touch-A-Truck program. Participants in the Route 66 Raceway Junior Dragster Program will also be on-site with their dragsters, while the Learning Experience Academy of Early Education in Crest Hill will be available for face painting with children. The Family Fun Zone in Crest Hill will be giving away free birthday party prizes to Kids Club members and Kids Club registration can be done either online or on-site the day of the event.

JULIE, Inc. will be sponsoring this year’s “golden eggs,” in the Easter Egg Dash, featuring special prizes for the children that find them. Guests can also stop by the JULIE, Inc. table for goody bags and to learn more about safely beginning any digging project.

The Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup will return to Chicagoland Speedway for the fifth consecutive year in 2015, Sept. 18-20, with a triple-header weekend of action.
