Scouting 500 Moves to September

Scouting's Largest Event Now Set for September 22-24, 2017

We’re extremely excited and preparing around the clock for this fall’s Scouting 500. Our great partnership with the Kansas Speedway has also afforded us an opportunity that will make Scouting’s largest event available to even more Scouts. The Kansas Speedway recently approached us about moving the Scouting 500 from the current date of August 25-27 to the weekend of September 22-24. When the August date was originally set, our first choice of holding the event in September or October was unavailable. However, due to a scheduling change, the weekend of September 22-24 is now available.

After an in-depth review by the Scouting 500 committee, it has been determined that the September 22-24 date is preferable to the original August date. Key factors in the decision to change the date were more favorable weather conditions in September and an extra month to invite new Cub Scouts to participate. We apologize for any inconvenience that this date change may cause, but we are confident that it is worth moving the Scouting 500 to the weekend of September 22-24. We look forward to showcasing the best of Kansas City Scouting and welcoming more than 15,000 Scouts, leaders, family and friends to Kansas Speedway for what promises to be an amazing event.
