CANADIAN NATIONAL AUTISM FOUNDATION NIGHT UP NEXT FOR WEEKLY RACING SERIES~ (Halifax, NS. July 28, 2015) Scotia Speedworld’s Weekly Racing Series is proud to present KIDS RACE on behalf of the Canadian National Autism Foundation (CNAF). The CNAF will be at Scotia Speedworld on Friday night with information on their foundation as five divisions of race cars battle in the Weekly Racing Series. On track this week are the Hydraulics Plus Bandoleros, The Chickenburger Thunder cars, Strictly Hydraulics Legends, Coors Light Trucks and the Dartmouth Dodge Sportsman. Adult admission for the Weekly Racing Series is just $12.00; Youth (8-15) are $2.00 and children 7 and under are free…all summer long! Tickets are available at the gate on race day (cash only). Grandstand gates open at 5:00 PM with racing action slated to get underway at 7:00 PM.

“KIDS RACE was started in 2010 as an idea to create a new platform for autism research and awareness” said the President of the CNAF, Tina Fougere. “It wasn’t too long after speaking and working alongside track owners, officials, drivers, crews and fans across the country that a common bond was formed. We realized that passion, dedication, family and the love for what we do, was something we all shared. KIDS RACE is all about having family fun for a great cause and accepting our loved ones with autism. We couldn't ask for a better place in Nova Scotia to host our family event than with the wonderful people at Scotia Speedworld who have opened their doors, but most importantly their hearts, to our cause.”

Please note Kids Race is not an actual race, it is just a name the CNAF uses to brand their events at race tracks across the country. On track action will be the same as every other Weekly Racing Series event.
