“We have something at the facility for everyone from the race enthusiast who looks forward to awesome on-track racing and beyond with things throughout the property that other family members can enjoy. We basically have a three-ring circus,” said Kristen Lestock, NHMS director of communications.
Fan Fest will include a question-and-answer session with drivers Jimmy Lehoux and Eddie MacDonald from Rowley, Mass., who just received a Spring Cup start, giveaways, a concert, then fireworks at 8:30 p.m. plus raffles to benefit the Speedway Children’s Charities.
There will be zip lines for fans, go-cart racing, Broadway on the Midway, which has shows, concerts and interactive displays, balloon artists, raffles, face painting and driver appearances.
