Race Into Reading
Saturday June 2nd
10 AM – 1 PM
Gnome Games Green Bay East
Brown County Library East Branch
2255 Main Street
Real Race Cars and Drivers at Race Into Reading
Families can meet real race car drivers, see their cars and even climb inside for a hot photo op! We have some of the fastest race cars and best drivers in Wisconsin on hand to show off their cars, sign autographs take photos and meet the entire family. We’ll have stock cars, modified cars, sport mods, grand nationals and more on display for the entire family to check out.
Free Books for all the kids!
The Bellevue Optimists are bringing the books and everyone under 17 will get a free age appropriate hard cover summer reading book. Kids get a book of their very own at Race Into Reading – because it’s important for all kids to have a good book of their own to read.
Free Summer Reading Bag for all the kids!
Gnome Games will provide summer reading bags for the kids. When a child has their own bag for their own books we believe they will take pride in ownership and want to read even more!
Race Car Parade at 12:30!
At 12:30 we’ll fire up the engines and take all the cars on a little ride! This is the only place in the world where real race cars go through the Starbucks Drive through! The Green Bay Police will be on hand to make sure it’s all done safely – but you’ll be able to watch as the thunder hits Main Street in Green Bay!
Come out to the Races!
Many of the drivers are racing every weekend at the local tracks and want to invite families to join them for the fastest cars on dirt. Local tracks –
Luxemburg Speedway (Friday Night Races)
141 Speedway (Saturday Night Races)
Shawano Speedway (Saturday Night Races)
Seymour Speedway (Sunday Races)
Sturgeon Bay “The Hill” Various nights throughout the summer
Kids are also encouraged to tune up their big wheels and two wheelers for a very special Kids Night and Big Wheel Races on Friday June 15th at Luxemburg Speedway. There will be Big Wheel Races with medals for all the racers and a 9 – 14 year old 1 lap Dash for Cash Race too! This is where the Gnomes will say thank you to the drivers that support Race Into Reading with a bonus $50 cash payout to the heats and main event winners for the car class that has the most cars showing at Race Into Reading!
