One of the highlights on the schedule every year at Chateau Speedway in Lansing is Kids Night, which was held on Friday. The drivers look forward to it as much as the kids do as they head out on the track an hour before race time and the kids line up to get a ride in the cars.  

The track always brings out a couple bikes to give away as well and again the drivers, along with some fans, bring more bikes out and before you know it, there’s a dozen happy youngsters going home with a new bike as well as other prizes and candy. 

The drivers ran through the heats with just one caution and after a short intermission to give the bikes away, the track made it through four of the six features with just four cautions among them before having to call an end to the night due to heavy rain. 

Next week is the Spirit of 83 Memorial with a full night of racing slated. Track officials decided to hold onto the make-up features for an extra week.
