The area's only drag strip will host an event tonight that will help gather toys for the local Toys for Tots charity.   Gateway Motorsports Park is hosting Midnight Madness tonight at its drag strip, and hopes those racing illegally on area roads will take advantage of the opportunity to race in a controlled environment, and donate to a good cause at the same time.

The track's John Bisci tells The Big Z each midnight Madness event includes some kind of theme to tie into the season.

Gates open for Midnight Madness at 6pm with drag racing, music and special attractions from 7pm-1am.  If you bring a new, unused toy to donate to Toys for Tots, you will receive a $3 discount on spectator admission.  For more information, call (618) 215-8888, or follow the link:
