JACKSON, Mich. -- The streets of downtown Jackson transform into a celebration of the sport of racing for the Friday Night Street Party. The stars of the Indy Racing League are joined by local and regional dignitaries, community business leaders, MIS representatives, racing enthusiasts and others for a non-stop racing celebration, the likes of which are unparalleled.

If you have ever wondered what it would be like on the IRL circuit, be sure to stop by the Racing Simulator while your kids enjoy an area full of entertainment just for them. The professional drivers will be on-hand for an autograph session amidst live entertainment for the whole family on the Live Stage. The autograph sessions will be held from 5 p.m. until 6 p.m. in Downtown Jackson.

The drivers at the autograph session will include Indy Racing League stars like: Marco Andretti, Ed Carpenter, Helio Castroneves, Scott Dixon, Milka Duno, Sarah Fisher, A.J. Foyt IV, Dario Franchitti, Sam Hornish Jr., Tony Kanaan, Buddy Lazier, Darren Manning, Kosuke Matsuura, Vitor Meira, Danica Patrick, Buddy Rice, Marty Roth, Tomas Scheckter, Scott Sharp, Jeff Simmons and Dan Wheldon.

Horsepower hits the streets with a classic car show down Michigan Avenue. The show, which is set to be one of the largest of the season, features cars and trucks from all eras of the automobile industry, both street legal and track-use only. The classic car show beings at 4:30 p.m.

Vehicles of all makes and models, from the deuce coupes to the slammed s10 pickups, are expected to take over Michigan Avenue and across streets in the north and south direction. And you can be a part of this amazing line-up! Bring your classic ride downtown to show it off, and meet other car collectors and enthusiasts as you and your family enjoy the electrifying atmosphere that racing brings to Jackson.

Amidst the exhilarating atmosphere of the Friday Night Street Party, local teams and professional drivers get serious about speed as they battle each other bumper-to-bumper. It’s the Go-Kart Challenge, an event you won’t want to miss! The Go-Kart Challenge is held from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.

The event is filled with dramatic twists and turns as teams attempt to annihilate each other in heat races as they work towards a thrilling championship race. And it all takes place in the streets of Jackson.

The go-kart challenge is composed of teams from the local community. If you think you have what it takes to vie wheel-to-wheel for the checkered flag, reserve your place at the starting line now! Contact Ronnie Johncox at 789-8988 for more information on getting involved in the Go-Kart Challenge.
