In what's become a holiday tradition combining racing, fireworks and a big kids' bicycle giveaway, Lucas Oil Speedway plays host to a special "Thursday Night Thunder" edition of the Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series this week.

According to a press release from Lyndal Scranton, Public Relations Director at Lucas Oil Speedway:

"The Thursday-night program during 4th of July week has become one of our most-popular weekly events of the season and it's bigger than ever this year, falling on the actual holiday," Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Danny Lorton said. "Along with the big fireworks show after the races by AM Pyrotechnics, we hope to make it a special night for a lot of youngsters."

The Kids' Bicycle Giveaway, for boys and girls ages 5-12, will take place during intermission. Youngsters can sign up for the Frog's Signs Junior Fan Club when they arrive at the speedway for a chance to win a new bicycle. The speedway is still seeking donations of bicycles or cash donations toward new bikes.
