6-24-14 Fr-Toledo Autograph night

Posted: Updated:
Fans of all ages enjoy the opportunity to walk onto the track, check out the race cars and chat with their favorite drivers! And the time to do just that is this weekend at Toledo and Flat Rock Speedway's Autograph Night!

"Our race teams take great pride in the Autograph Night promotion," noted Casey Wagner, Assistant General Manager of the 2 tracks." It makes for a great night of fun for the entire family."

The race teams at the track put forth a big effort to say "thank you" to the race fans by handing out photos, hero cards, candy and treats for fans both young and not-so young! And there's a pretty good chance the drivers will load a kid into their race car and climb behind the wheel for a photo for Mom and Dad!

Friday night, June 27 Toledo will stage Autograph Night, sponsored by Teamsters Local 20 and Glass Bowl Lanes. It's also Kid's Night (re-scheduled from June 20), with all kids to age 14 admitted free with a paid adult. Each child will also receive a free hot dog, courtesy of Sherwood Foods, Jim's Butcher Shop and Schwebel Baking Company. Parents should pick up the children's ticket/hot dog voucher at the ticket windows upon arrival to the track Friday night.

Four divisions will be in action Friday, with the ARCA Aramark Sportsman on the ½ mile, and the track's Praxair Figure 8's and R & M Recycling X Cars on the ¼ mile. The MCR Dwarf Cars will make a visit to the Glass City also Friday evening.

The front gates and ticket office open at 5 p.m. For the race teams, the pit gate opens at 4, with practice for the race cars at 5. Time trials are at 6:15, the on-track autograph session is at 7 and racing begins at 7:30 p.m.
