EVE of DESTRUCTION is HERE!


EVE of DESTRUCTION is HERE!

Feed you need for mayhem and speed with Meridian Speedway this Saturday, July31, as Eve of Destruction XIII goes green in the Concrete Jungle.  The Speed Tour Sprint Cars and Modifieds powered by Pit Stop USA pound the pavement alongside the Big Daddy’s Barbecue Hornets and Firehouse Pub and Grill Bombers to open Saturday night’s action, then turn the track over to The Beast for a Jet Dragster Meltdown, a Hornets versus The Gauntlet slugfest, and the World-Famous Boat and Trailer Races of Destruction before fireworks light up the Treasure Valley skies. 

The fire-breathing Speed Tour Sprint Cars presented by Pit Stop USA headline the night’s racing action.  Averaging eighty miles-per-hour around the tight confines of Meridian Speedway’s asphalt quarter-mile, you won’t want to miss a moment as these daring drivers dart and dice their way to the checkers.   

The ultimate evolution of NASCAR’s first touring division, the Speed Tour Modifieds presented by Pit Stop USA combine the physical action of full-bodied stock cars with the latest in circle track technology.  Mix in the most competitive drivers in the Northwest has to offer and you get a race experience like no other.   

Action from the always-entertaining Big Daddy’s Barbecue Hornets and purely stock, built-in-a-day Firehouse Pub and Grill Bombers rounds out an exciting slate of short track racing the way it ought to be.   

Then, the fun starts. 

Ever wonder how long it would take a fighter jet’s engine to melt a car?  Wonder no longer, as Jeff Atamian and his jet dragster named ‘The Beast’ turn their thrusters to kill on a hapless sub-compact.  Can The Gauntlet Van best a swarm of Big Daddy‘s Barbecue Hornets, or will the two-ton watermelon-wielding behemoth fall once again to the teamwork of a few brave drivers?   

But the most important question of all is this: how do you race boats on asphalt? 

The World Famous Boat and Trailer Races of Destruction start with dozens of boats and trailers chained to the meanest tow rigs our most daring racers could find.  It ends when just one vehicle has a boat, or what’s left of one, attached while the rest lay in shambles across the quarter-mile. 

General admission for this full night of competition and catastrophe is just $20 for adults, $18 for seniors and military members, $7 for kids 7-11, and, as always, free for kids 6 and under.  Gates open at 4:45 p.m. with destruction set to begin at 6:30 p.m.  Seats are filling up fast!  Secure your tickets at www.meridianspeedway.com.  We’ll see you this Saturday, July 31, under the big yellow water tower for Eve of Destruction XIII at your NASCAR Home Track, Meridian Speedway.
