61 kids ages 3-6 and their family had the opportunity of a lifetime this beautiful Saturday afternoon in November. The track was reserved for Strider Bikes’ first U.S. Discovery Ride event. While most Strider fans are very familiar with the Strider Cup racing series, the Discovery Ride is meant to be a unique event that focuses more on a family-friendly, hands-on, non-competitive experiences. And an experience it was…
Bubba Blackwell, a professional stunt jumper who has broken every single one of Evil Knievel’s records and tours as a pro-flagger for the American Motorcycle Association Flat Track Racing demonstrated how the flagging process works before, during, and after a race. Kids got to check out his impressive flag collection and try it out themselves.
The pit stop demo showed the kids up close the ins and outs of how an actual NASCAR Pit Crew works together to get cars in tip-top shape and back on the track in record time.
Nothing makes you feel like a star more than being interviewed and featured on the real-life NASCAR Jumbotron!
Proceeds from the registrations for the Strider Discovery Ride were donated to Speedway Children’s Charities which funds a wide range of charities – because communities have a wide range of charitable interest and needs. SCC’s goal is to reach as many children as possible by supporting those agencies that are the unsung heroes in many communities. Thank you to the riders, families, staff, and volunteers of this life-changing event. We know all of you are making a difference in our future, and the future of riding. Until next year… #StrideOn!
