Nearly 500 items will be given away in the first ever “Terminix Kids Night”.

Organizers pretty much guarantee that every kid in attendance will receive a gift courtesy of Terminix.

Among the items to be given away will be t-shirts, coloring books, rulers, “beanie baby” stuffed insects, balloons, and temporary tattoos. The grand prize giveaway will be two bicycles.

In addition to the special night for the kids, the action on the track is expected to be fast and furious for the “Terminix Modified Nationals.”

In the previous $1,000 to win Tomahawk Race Car Modified event held back on May 31, Todd Robinson bested a field of 36 Tomahawk Race Car Modifieds.

For the second time this season, race fans will also be treated to a pair of 30 lap features. (30 laps for Late Models and 30 laps for Tomahawk Race Car Modifieds).

Adult general admission is $12, general admission for kids 7-12 is $2, and pit admission is $25.

There will be no entry fees for any of the classes.

The nights action will get underway with Hot Laps at 7:30 pm.

RTR features grandstand seating along with plenty of places for lawn chairs.
