The Kankakee County Speedway, roaring into its 62nd season, rouses racing fans with a full schedule of upcoming supersonic events, such as the 3rd Annual Northfield Square Mall Show. Competitors from a wide range of divisions—including Super Late Models, Pro Late Models, Modifieds, Stock Cars, I-Mods, and Sport Compacts—descend upon the course determined to etch their name into the track’s storied history and rack up cash and points, which are needed to win championships. The speedway boasts a long list of legends, such as Jim O’ Connor, who collected six titles and 84 checkered flags during his career, and “Cocktail” Tommy Kroll, who has won six track championships in four different decades. Additionally, autograph sessions after select events soup up memorabilia collections, and children 10 years of age and younger can ride the “Kids Club” bus and gain free admission upon stating their birthday.
