The ever-popular Kid’s Night at the Races takes place this Saturday as part of the weekly racing program at Central Missouri Speedway for Comfort Inn, Warrensburg Station Night. Kid’s Night features excitement for young race fans from toddler age to kids up to 12 years old. There are a several events planned, highlighted by the kid’s foot races on the track in girls and boys age groups of ages 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, and 11-12. The foot races will take place during the intermission break.

Every child 12 and under will receive a free hot dog and drink and will receive a free “goody bag” stuffed full of various items including coupons, school supplies, trinkets, hero cards and other small miscellaneous items. Kids will have a chance to win bicycles and backpacks through special drawings and by winning the competitive foot races. The DQ Grill and Chill, Zaxby’s, and Kansas City Mavericks mascots are scheduled to be on hand. MAC from the Mavericks will give away up to 300 vouchers for Mavericks tickets to be placed in the goody bags!

During last week’s action, a whopping 108 cars jammed the pits for the championship action. This week the USRA Modifieds, Street Stocks, Midwest Mod-Lites, Out-Pace USRA B-Mods, and Pure Stocks return for another night of fast and furious fun.

Dean Wille of Warrensburg claimed his first Modified victory at CMS in just over nine years. With Wille’s win and a recent win by Jimmy Dowell, the veterans have upped their game this season at CMS. Speaking of veterans, Jim Moody currently leads the Modified standings over one of the young guns at CMS, Dalton Kirk, and another veteran, Tim Karrick of Basehor, Kan.

Jake Richards has more main event wins this year at CMS with a total of seven; however, it is Jacob Ebert who is the current leader in Out-Pace USRA B-Mod action ahead of Cody Frazon and Richards.
