Driver Autograph Sessions

No matter your age, an autograph from a well established IndyCar racer is more than exciting; it’s a chance to meet a dare devil for goodness sake.

You can’t tell me you weren’t enticed as a kid to be a race-car driver…

I promise, even if watching laps doesn’t entice you to join in on the fun at Barber, Bucket Truck Rides might as well be compared to riding in a fire truck for the first time = all I’ve dreamed of doing…especially after imbibing at the wine tasting tent.

Kids Zone and Inflatables

Let’s see, kids under 15 get in free AND they get to play in the inflatables. Life just isn’t fair.  Is this suggesting you have to be a kid, or just act like a kid, to slide down…?
