The Press Tribune tonight is sponsoring the annual Kids Night at All American Speedway, including a bicycle giveaway contest.

The NASCAR Whelen All-American Series program will include free face painting, food specials, drawings and driver autograph sessions. Kids 12 and under will be admitted free of charge.

In action on the track will be the Late Model division for a 100-lapper, plus the Modified, Street Stock, Bomber and WSRA classes.

Last Saturday, Steve Cote registered his first Modified victory and is third in points. Scott Winters has 194 points and leads Dan Jinkerson by seven. Jason Bamberg moved from sixth to fourth in points, and Andy Field and Michael Ostrowski are tied for fifth.

In Street Stock, Mickey Owens swept the twin 35-lap features and took over the points lead with Richard Poppert Jr. second and Byron Gonzales third.

Andrew Vanderpool took the lead on lap 18 and won the 25-lap WSRA Mini Cup main event. Tommy McCarthy led the first 17 laps.

In the NCMA Sprint class, David Goodwill was fastest in both practice sessions, posted the quickest time in qualifying, cruised to a win in the eight-lap heat race and took the checkered flag in the trophy dash.

But after leading 25 laps in the main event, Goodwill was passed by Denny Burrell, who drove to a 3.358-second victory.

Grandstands open at 4 p.m. today. Qualifying starts at 4 and racing at 6. Tickets cost $13 for adults and $7 for Seniors and Juniors ages 13-15. A family pass costs $35 and includes two adults and three juniors tickets. Parking is $5 per vehicle.
