Lucas Oil Speedway seeks donations for annual Kids' Bicycle Night giveaway
WHEATLAND, MO. (June 15, 2022) - One of the biggest nights of the Big Adventure Weekly Racing Series is coming up at Lucas Oil Speedway and it's one that can create lasting memories for youngsters.
The annual Thursday Night Thunder program on June 30 not only will feature great racing and a spectacular fireworks display, but it's also Kids Bicycle Night with the speedway hoping to give away hundreds of bikes to kids ages 5-12.
The youngsters can sign up at intermission for a chance to enter a drawing for the new boys' and girls' bicycles of various sizes. How many bikes will be determined by donations - both of bicycles and of money spent toward purchasing them.
"It's always a special night and one we look forward to, when the kids smile when they receive bicycles that many of them might not otherwise be able to afford," Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Danny Lorton said. "We are asking our drivers, sponsors, fans and friends to help us out by donating bicycles for this big night."
For questions or more details, contact Lisa Lorton at the Lucas Oil Speedway office (417) 282-5984 or via email at Lisa@lucasoilspeedway.com. Bikes or money toward bike purchases can also be dropped off at the track office during weekday business hours or at this Saturday night's races.
Also this Saturday, proceeds from the 50/50 raffle will go toward the purchase of bicycles for the giveaway.
Youngsters can sign up for the Frog's Signs Junior Fan Club when they arrive at the speedway on June 30 for a chance to win a new bicycle.
