Kids take a spin at Terrace speedway

Kids crowded around the gate for their chance for a ride at the speedway track tonight.

Kids took a spin inside and on the racing cars at the speedway track tonight, and will have a chance for more at 2 p.m. tomorrow, Sunday, when the races continue.

It’s kids weekend at the speedway track, with face painting and a bike race for kids, as well as car rides, in between the car racing at the track.

Here are a few photos of tonight’s fun at the track.
