Trunk-or-Treat at the Track

The Chicagoland Speedway will be having their second annual Trunk-or-Treat fundraising event on October 20 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. According to the Chicagoland Speedway website, families and race fans are invited to load up their trunks with candy and put their little ones in full costume before heading to the event.

The event is $10 per car, and children can walk through Champions Park to collect candy just as they would on Halloween. The proceeds from the event will benefit Chicagoland Speedway’s charity, Racing Advocates for Community Enrichment (R.A.C.E.).

The website also encourages event-goers to not forget that kids are not the only ones who can partake in the action. Adults are also encouraged to dress in costumes as the Chicagoland Speedway will host a costume contest for adults 18 years of age and older. They will also host one for children 17 years old and younger. The race track will also have a “Fall Family Photo Opportunity” to capture the perfect portrait while attending.

Are costumes not your thing? No worries, event-goers can also join the car decorating competition. This event will consist of attempting to turn your family vehicle into a “hearse of haunts or carriage of creatures.” The most creative car decoration will be awarded with tickets to the 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race, according to the website. The event will feature the following:

  • Trick-or-treating

  • Child & adult costume contests

  • Car decorating contest

  • Thrill Pace Car Rides

  • Hay rides

  • Fall Photo Opportunity

  • Food trucks

  • Games presented by Costco, Chuck-E-Cheese and Shine FM

  • Face painting

  • Pumpkin inflatable bounce house
