Eve Of Destruction

The track has hosted an annual "Eve of Destruction" each September since 1993 and it is the tracks' annual season finale for the stock car. The Eve of destruction is one of the biggest events hosted at track, as the 10,000 seat raceway is generally packed. Drivers compete in a variety of unusual events such as chain races two cars are chained together, spin to win race backwards and then spin around forward for the finish, trailer races part of the trailer must remain intact to continue racing, etc. In between races, fans are entertained by stunt car drivers. Ten school buses compete in a survival-of-the-fittest competition, where the last bus standing wins. Track owner Roger Van Daalwyk described the Eve of Destruction: "We kind of wreck everything."
