Mike Baumgardner Memorial Late Model Invitational

Help us honor longtime Hibbing Raceway fan and one of our biggest supporters, Mike Baumgardner. Mike passed away from a longtime illness in 2012 & to pay tribute to Mike, we've invited the Northern Late Model Racing Association to the Hibbing Raceway. Along with the very best Hibbing Raceway Late Model pilots, this event is sure to bring some of the Midwest's best drivers to the track! PLUS it's KIDS' NIGHT for the late model class!

Kids' Night for Late Models
Kids will have the opportunity to pop a balloon to determine a starting spot for late model drivers this week. The kid(s) will then be paired with the driver in that starting spot. Before the feature, the kids will go down on the track to stand near their driver for out-of-car introductions and pictures. If their driver wins the race, they win a bike. If their driver is second or third, they will win other prizes TBD. (When they pop balloons, if there is more kids than starting spots, they will also win candy, t-shirts, trophy presentation opportunity, etc.)

This event is presented by Beltline Body Shop, J.M. Auto, Domino's Pizza, and ArcelorMittal.

Mohawk's Salvage, TRC Racecars, Radko Iron & Supply, Village Realty/Chad Baucom and the Baumgardner family....
