Saturday, June 17 on Father’s Day weekend, 67 Speedway will be featuring Kid’s Superheroes night with cash prizes for costume contests, and Powder Puff Factory and 305 Races. Which is a whole lot tougher than it sounds.
Texarkana 67 Speedway has had a rough season with the rain, and scheduling around all of the big events at neighboring tracks, but has been given the opportunity to focus on 67 Speedway building a reputation as a “family track” with special emphasis on the kids. The track has hosted bicycle races, (which some area adult cyclists and top notch mountain bike racers came from far and wide to race for $200, and will all tell you that a bicycle on a dirt track, is not easy but pretty funny to watch.) They have had bounce houses, special activities, and giveaways for the kids. Organizers at the track have decided to no longer sell beer at the speedway, however this year you are allowed to bring a cooler inside the speedway for a small fee and bring your own beer, but those drinking will be restricted to a certain side of the grandstands.
The Saturday nights that racers have been able to compete so far this season have been nothing short of exciting. Some hard racing, some hurt feelings, the excitement and passion that comes with racing. There have been a couple of scary moments but all have finished the nights safely. Their cars? Meh.
On Saturday, June 17 Texarkana 67 Speedway will host “Kid’s Super Hero Night” with kids in costume being eligible for cash prizes as determined by crowd response. There will also be “Powder Puff” races in the Factory and 305 classes. These are always so exciting to watch the driver wives and friends show the guys how to park it under the checkered flag. If this is something you would like to try, please have your ride picked out and ready.
All classes will be running Saturday, June 17, for cash and glory!
