Joliet, Ill. (August 22, 2016)Chicagoland Speedway is proud to partner with NASCAR as they announced Kids Drive NASCAR Week today. To show our appreciate for young fans, all kids ages 12 and younger will be admitted free to all NASCAR XFINITY Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races in 2017

“There really is no other experience like attending a NASCAR race in person, and that’s especially true for kids,” said Jill Gregory, NASCAR senior vice president and chief marketing officer. “So many children become lifelong NASCAR fans because their parents brought them to their first race, and this new ticket offering makes it even more affordable for families to create memories that will last a lifetime."

This year, Chicagoland Speedway is offering free tickets for kids 12 and under in select grandstand sections for our Sept. 15 SCOTT® 150 ARCA Racing Series event and our Sept. 16 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series American Ethanol e15 225 event. In addition, every kids ticket at Chicagoland is $25 off an adult ticket price.

Chicagoland Speedway will take the next step in Kids Drive NASCAR, the new, industry-wide initiative that will engage youth audiences, program by offering free tickets in select sections to the ARCA Series, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race and the NASCAR XFINITY Series races in 2017 as well as additional offers and exclusive invites, such as a free Kids Club program for kids 12 and under.

At this year’s NASCAR weekend at Chicagoland Speedway, an unprecedented line up of kids and family-focused activities will be available to celebrate the first-ever Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 400, the kickoff race in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles iconic members, Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo, will be on hand to support Nickelodeon’s #1 kid’s franchise.

A full line up of drivers for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles race team will battle at Chicagoland Speedway, including NASCAR Sprint Cup Series star Danica Patrick, who will drive the No. 10 April O’Neil/Nature’s Bakery Chevrolet SS in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 400.  NASCAR XFINITY Series driver Bubba Wallace also joined the team and will race the No. 6 Shredder Ford Mustang for Rousch Fenway Racing.

Joining the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be activation from NASCAR Acceleration Nation, which is aimed at educating kids on the sport, the Kids Fan Zone and the NASA Rockets 2 Racecars STEM Education program.

The Kids Drive NASCAR program further illustrates the goal of improving the at-track experience by delivering additional value and an unparalleled live-event experience for NASCAR fans.
