    I did this in my room and first I had my kids color a car(I made different styles but in racecars) then I made a track up and around the top of my classroom and they could move their car for a reward. Sometimes it could be for making a 100 on a spelling test, math test, etc. When they reached the finish line they could choose another reward. Free time, extra computer time, etc. Also Oriental trading has some checkered and multi-colored pennent flags which I strung up accross the room. I put each class period on a different colored flag and jung them below the clock. A cheap way to make a big checkered flag is to use the wide black paper off the roll and them place sheets of copy paper on it to make the squares. This is cheap and easy. For the reading area I brought in a couple of old tires (cleaned up of course) and placed pillows in the center for the kids to sit in and read. The other teachers thought I was nuts but the kids loved it. You could use the theme "Racing to succeed" Texas Motor speedway has a free poster you can sent for and they were nice enough to send me some racing flags. I know there was more that I did but with the end of the year I am blank. I hope this helps a bit.
