(Kansas City, Kansas) Kid’s Night at the Races presented by Travelers Protective Association (TPA) and NASCAR Advance Auto Parts weekly series action took place on Friday at Lakeside Speedway. Sixty-four race teams took part in the action, which featured 10 A-Mods, 19 B-Mods, 12 Stock Cars, 7 Pure Stocks, and 16 E-Mods.

Drivers took part in 11 heat races throughout the night as fans witnessed five main events. The next generation of race fans also took part in the festivities with their kid’s night activities featuring various prizes and foot races on the track. By the end of the night, two drivers found themselves in victory lane for the first time this season while some drivers kept steam-rolling the competition.

Another year of domination at Lakeside Speedway is unfolding for Kansan Nic Bidinger in A-Mod competition after he drove to victory in the 15-lap A-Mod main. It was his sixth track victory this season. His ninth top-five in as many outings has led to a 107-point lead over Randal Schiffelbein, Jr., in the championship standings. Justin Johnson turned in an admirable run to the second spot from sixth while Tim Karrick rounded out the top three finishers.
