JOLIET, Ill. (August 24, 2017) — Families and race fans are encouraged to load up their trunks with candy, put their little ones in full costume and head over to  the first ever “Trunk-or-Treat” at Route 66 Raceway on October 21 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.


For just $10 per car, children will be able to walk from car to car in the World’s First True Stadium of Drag Racing to collect candy as they usually would door-to-door in spirit of the main scary event just 10 days later. One hundred percent of the proceeds will benefit Route 66 Raceway’s charitable entity, Racing Advocates for Community Enrichment (R.A.C.E.).


Kids are not the only ones who can partake in the action; adults are also urged to dress in full garb as Route 66 Raceway will host a costume contest for children 20 years old and younger as well as one for adults 21 years of age and older. Be sure to swing by the Fall Family Photo Opportunity to capture the perfect portrait.


If costumes aren’t your thing, be sure to join the car decorating contest. Attempt 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 2018 NHRA Route 66 Nationals. Then park your suited up ride and partake in our Halloween themed family fun.
