The Kmart Kids Race Against Drugs, a family racing event, will be held from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday at Kmart, 3106 Iowa.
A specially designed race track will be set up in the Kmart parking lot and children ages 7 to 12 can take a drive in miniature race cars while being clocked by an electronic timing device. Racing participants must wear safety belts and race with an adult safety rider.
The event is free. Each child gets a free T-shirt, baseball cap and information about the dangers of drugs and alcohol abuse. There is no pre-registration; an adult must accompany each racer.
