The year, River Cities Speedway is offering a different type of racing. For the first time, buses will be used for an intermission race.

Local racer car drivers will be racing the school buses as a fundraiser for area schools.

Eight schools adopted a bus and painted them in their school colors.

One racer says it's going to be a sight to see.

"I cant wait to get going, I think it's going to be a lot of fun. The drivers have been heckling each other back and forth and I wouldn't be surprised to see one of these guys upside down," said driver Mark Dobmeier.
