Kids on Track is dedicated to lifting the spirits and creating opportunities of inspiration for children throughout the country by providing them with unique access to IndyCar racing events in the Mazda Road to Indy racing series.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Kids on Track is fueled by individual and organization donations to the worthwhile cause. Namely, likeminded people and organizations who, like Hi-Tide Boat Lifts, are dedicated to doing more to inspire children to reach for their dreams and provide the lessons they need to find success both on and off the track.

The 2018 Kids on Track season kicks off in March at the first race of the Mazda Road to Indy racing series.

Our History

Hi-Tide Boat Lifts has spent decades elevating their craft of providing an unmatched customer experience with exceptional product quality. Striving to extend their connection deeper into the community, Hi-Tide wanted to do more. More to inspire, more to encourage, and more to teach children that with dedication, teamwork and perseverance, anything is possible. In IndyCar racing they found a sport that encapsulated those values and more, all while capturing the excitement and wonder of the children Hi-Tide hoped to reach.

With the inception of the Kids on Track program in 2015, Hi-Tide Boat Lifts dedicated beyond lifting boats to also lifting the spirits and creating opportunities of inspiration for children throughout the U.S., providing them unique access to IndyCar racing events in the Mazda Road to Indy racing series.

 

Exclusive Experiences

Throughout the regular Mazda Road to Indy racing series season, Kids onTrack works with local children’s organizations in cities where races are to be held, granting children free access to racing events, experiences with Mazda Road to Indy crews who explain processes that go on behind the scenes, private autograph sessions with professional drivers, a memorable and inspirational gift bag, and more.

Since its humble beginnings, Kids on Track has provided over 250 children a once-in-a-lifetime experience, including driver meet-and-greets, access to racing paddocks and exclusive photo opportunities.

Off the Track

In addition to regularly scheduled Mazda Road to Indy series races, Kids on Track is making an impact beyond the IndyCar circuit. Sponsoring private events at individual centers such as Andersen Racepark in Palmetto, FL,  Kids on Track provides children with skilled kart training, racing techniques, fun giveaways, and an exclusive group experience that can be an opportunity for inspiration. Participants are literally “put in the driver’s seat” on local racetracks and courses to experience what professional drivers stay proficient on.
