Looking for something fun and local to do with the family? Join a little band of car enthusiasts for their Gumball race to US 131 Motorsports Park for the midnight madness Friday, August 21 at 6:00 PM. Meeting at Berger Chevrolet about 6:00 they will rally SW GR and end at US 131 Motorsports Park for the midnight madness races.
Whats a Gumball race you ask? It’s a family friendly scavenger hunt in a car. The exact format varies, but typically participants are given places to visit between the start and end point. Often presented in the form of a riddle, each participant has to get to each stop, take a photo of themselves and their car at the site, and then move on to the next point. First participant to get their photo taken at all the points and get to the end 1st wins! What do you win? Everyone’s eternal admiration, what else is there?!
The route for midnight madness is TBD – probably looking about 60-70 miles before they hit the drags. You will need money for the drags but that is all.
Who is welcome? Anyone with a car and a license. You don’t have to drive anything fancy, just come out and have fun! And don’t speed.
