The charity exhibition race will be held before the start of the live racing card with an estimated start time of 5:10 p.m.
In addition to providing support to the charities of the All-Star drivers, the Madison County Police and Fire Departments will once again battle it out in a series of challenges. The third annual Guns & Hoses event will help raise funds for the Fire Rescue House of Madison County. The family friendly event will feature live Standardbred racing and a community fair, complete with festive foods and family fun games.
Guns & Hoses will pit local police officers and firefighters against one another in a series of challenges. The challenges will begin after race two and range from a foot race carrying Hoosier Park drivers and a jelly donut speed eating contest to a dunk tank and the crowd favorite tug of war competition. There will also be various children’s activities in the Kid’s Zone along with a classic police car and fire truck on display. Guns & Hoses, open to all ages, is free to the public and will start at approximately 5 p.m. in the Yard.
At the culmination of race eight, Hoosier Park’s vice president and general manager of racing, Rick Moore, will present representatives from the Fire Rescue House of Madison County with a special $5,000 donation. As a token of Hoosier Park’s appreciation for their continued work to help local families in need, Hoosier Park will make the donation to help further their goals and maintain their high level of community service.
