This Saturday night, Pepsi brings you Kids Night presented by DOC X.

Kids Night at Rockford Speedway means Kids ages 11 and under get in FREE to the races and along with free admission for Kids, there’s going to be some extra fun on tap for the kids.

Throughout the night, Kids are welcome to take part in ‘Speedway Trick or Treat.’ Once the main gates open, keep an eye out for all the ‘treats’ in the concourse area. It may be at one of the concession stands, or maybe in the souvenir stand or elsewhere, but kids will have the chance to fill their pockets with various ‘treats’ in various places. Then, after the races are done, the Pit Area will open and the drivers and race teams will also participate in Speedway Trick or Treat. Drivers will be on hand to sign autographs and to hand out all sorts of treats. It’s sure to be a fun night, so make sure you bring the kids this Saturday.

Also this Saturday night, Jeff Jones Racing and Kyle Mohan Racing are taking over Rockford with DOC X!

The two well known Drift Car Racers will begin their day at 11 AM at Beef-A-Roo (6380 E. Riverside, Loves Park, IL). Stop by to get an autograph, check out their Formula Drift cars up close, hang out with 104.9 The X, and eat delicious food.

The Drink DOC Crew then moves to the Speedway starting at 5 PM. Fans are invited to meet and greet the drivers, grab some free DOC and watch Jeff and Kyle kill some tires! Jeff and Kyle will be hitting the track around 6:30 PM and again during intermission.

Racing on Pepsi Kids Night includes the return of the Stanley Steemer NASCAR Late Models plus the Bargain Hunter Sportsman, Miller Lite American Short Trackers and Original Sixers. Grandstands open at 5 PM, with the show set to begin at 7:07 PM. Adult admission is $12, with Kids 11 and under admitted FREE! Don’t miss Pepsi Kids Night presented by DOC X this Saturday night!
