For 2017, we plan to hold races for kids at each and every event at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. The kids races will be fun and exciting for all kids. The kids races will be held on the Legends track on the infield of the Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Pre-registration is NOT needed but will be available on Racesonline.com. Registration onsite for the Kids’ Fun Ride is located in the garage with the time trial registration, and begins at approximately 4:30 p.m. There is a $5 charge for each child. The event itself will begin at promptly 5:30 p.m.
For this special Kids’ Fun Ride, the children are grouped in two categories, ages 4-6, 7-9 and 10-13. Each group will have the opportunity to ride the 3/8-mile Legends Track for approximately 10 minutes. Don’t worry, Mom & Dad, the kids will be in sight at all times. After both groups of kids are finished with their rides, all of the children will go to the CMS Winner’s Circle to receive a special cycling commemorative medal and an opportunity to have their pictures taken in the Speedway’s place of honor.
Here’s your child’s chance to ride his or her bike at the Speedway; something that will be remembered for many years. This event is open to all children. Bring your kids and their friends for this special ride.
All riders must have a safe bike and wear a helmet, and a parent or legal guardian must sign the consent and waiver agreement before the child may participate.
Children at least ten years of age and with sufficient cycling experience and the ability to ride the full 10-mile time trial may participate in the main event rather than the Kids’ Fun Ride. A parent or guardian is solely responsible for determining if the child has the ability to ride the full 10-mile event without weaving excessively, slowing too much, stopping, or otherwise being a danger to themselves or others on the track. If your child meets these requirements and wants to ride the main TT event, you must register him or her online in advance to receive the special youth rate.
