Power Wheel Race, Mascot Appearances Highlight Kid’s Night During RACERSITES Cup Round Three at Mooresville Motorplex
The NASCAR stars racing in Round Three of the RACERSITES Cup Wednesday night might have to compete hard to hold onto the spotlight. Round Three is Kid’s Night at the races which will include a Power Wheel race and appearances by local mascots, including the World’s Fastest Mascot, Charlotte Motor Speedway’s Lug Nut.
RACERSITES Cup Kid’s Night – Along with an action-packed event schedule of TaG Masters, TaG Senior and Rental Kart League racing, there will also be a Powel Wheel race for kids. The race will be a drag race down the front stretch and is open to any child who would like to enter. Kids must bring their own Power Wheel vehicle and enter either the 12 or 6-volt battery division. The Power Wheel race will run during opening ceremonies at 7 p.m. and there is no cost to enter the race.
Kid’s Night will also feature appearances by local mascots, including Charlotte Motor Speedway’s Lug Nut. Children will have the opportunity to color with the mascots and get their pictures taken from 5:30-7:30 p.m. As always, kids 10 and under receive FREE admission to the event.
RACERSITES Cup Round Three – The on-track activity promises to be just as intense this week as in Round Two where Jason Bowles stole the win as well as the points lead from Denny Hamlin in the TaG Masters division. Round Two’s TaG Senior division was star-studded with drivers, Kasey Kahne, Ryan Briscoe and Justin Allgaier.
The Rental Kart League has sold out their 22-kart field for both the Light and Heavy divisions in the first two rounds of the RACERSITES Cup. Ryan Blaney, Ross Chastain, Ryan Truex, Kevin Swindell and Bubba Wallace have all tried their hands at racing in the Rental Kart League. Swindell was able to take home the win in Round Two.
Each Wednesday night segment of the RACERSITES Cup consists of two practice sessions, a qualifying session and feature racing under the lights for each class. A champion will be crowned after the completion of the five-week series on April 10. Gates open at 3 p.m. with feature racing set to begin at 7 p.m.
There is a $10 Facility Entrance Fee for all spectators. Individuals who have a MMX membership will not be charged a Facility Entrance Fee. Competitors will only be charged for their RACERSITES Cup event registration fee.
