The Quarter Midget Association hosted the Arrive And Drive event today.
   
Kids between five and 15 years old could get behind the wheel, and take a spin on the track.
   
Some of the pros were also there for tips and tricks on how to handle these racers.
   
Officials say the event helps kids see if racing is the right sport for them.

"We have a nice sunny day and we have a good community of people who come out and support us," said Mick Landis, president of THQMA.  "It just shows the kids want the group does, I mean there's a lot of people that don't even know that we exist here, and it's a good family support for the kids to come out and enjoy and get a chance to drive a race car."

Around 200 kids participated in the race.
   
The money goes raised will go to a scholarship fund that helps give kids their own race car for a year.
