On top of that the girls will have the opportunity to take pictures with the drivers and even take a signed autograph card from both Schneider and Kane.
“We really want the night to be about the racing,” Katelyn Kane explains, “but we also want to give these girls someone they can relate to, we want to see them coming back week after week.”
“We want to become role models for these young girls,” Schneider goes on to say, “by teaching the girls that education must come first, but you can also achieve anything you set your mind to.”
Upon the completion of Kane and Schneider’s race, which will be the first feature ran of the night, they will rejoin their new friends and view the rest of the night’s racing action with the Girl Scouts and offer answers to any questions the girls may have.
In conjunction with meeting the drivers, the Girl Scouts will be able to sign up for Fulton Speedway’s Junior Fan Club, where they can be placed in a drawing to possibly win a ride in the pace car with their favorite driver during intermission.
