ENJOY A ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME EXPERIENCE OF SLINGIN' THE DIRT AND SLIDING IT SIDEWAYS IN A REAL DIRT LATE MODEL CAR ON THE HIGH BANKS OF KANKAKEE!
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to circle thght the high banks in a real fire breathing, ground pounding dirt late model? Or perhaps you're already an experienced racer who's thrown in the towel on the costs associated with running your own race program and just want to relight the fire that burns within you. Well, if either of these scenarios sounds like you, Kankakee County Speedway has a program geared just for you.
Introducing Kankakee County Speedway Rent-A-Ride, the only track in the Midwest that offers fans and racers alike, the opportunity to climb in behind the wheel of a real dirt late model ranging from brand new equipment to equipment with some laps on them but gently used.
The Rent-A-Ride Dirt Racing Experience is designed to give the racer or race fan the chance to experience what it feels like to get sideways on the dirt of a real race track. Under the guidance of an instructor, you will choose and drive a Pierce, Rocket or Warrior UMP Pro Late Model race car. Choose from cars with all brand new equipment or others with lightl;y used equipment and experience the high-banked thrills of one of Illinois' fastest 1/3-mile oval dirt tracks. You simply won't be able to wipe the ear to ear grin off your face for days and you'll better ubnderstand what it's like for these weekend warriors week in and week out.
