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.

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…?
