Want to bring the kids to a NASCAR race, but not sure what there is to do? Well, Auto Club Speedway is the ultimate motorsports playground for kids to have a blast and make new family traditions during the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Auto Club 400 race weekend – March 16-18, 2018. Lefty, the official mascot of Lefty’s Kids Club, has rounded up the top five things to do and see during race weekend before you buckle up in your seat and watch cars goes over 200 mph!

1. Make a pit stop at Lefty’s Fun Zone -- the ultimate family hangout – where you can challenge friends to slot car racing, run around in giant bubble rollers or climb a giant obstacle course. Plus, young race fans can challenge one another at a tire changing competition. 

2. Kid Rockstars? Yep, the Sugar Bombs will perform on the main stage in the O’Reilly Auto Parts Fan Zone. This local alternative rock band is comprised of young musicians - ages 10 to 12 years old!  NASCAR Driver Kasey Kahne recently jammed with Sugar Bombs – watch video >>> 

3. Bring a sharpie and autograph book to the NASCAR Xfinity Series Drivers Autograph Session on Friday, March 16 from 4:30 p.m. – 5:15 p.m. on the main stage in the Fan Zone. Be sure to get a wristband at the Auto Club Speedway display that day after 10 a.m.
