The Karnage Karnival Night of Destruction will take place on Saturday night June 3rd and the list of events taking stage has area fans ready to flock to the World’s Fastest 3/8 mile paved oval. From a blindfold race, where the driver is blindfolded and a passenger will direct them around the track to a tug of war with big trucks and everything in between including the first demolition derby at the track in years.
This night is going to be huge. In addition to the previously mentioned Blindfold race, racers will also compete in a Backwards race driving around the track in reverse gear plus a $1,000 to win Any Car race. A Tire Stack race, where used Hoosier F-45 tires from the Late Model division will be stacked on top of the car and your mission is to complete the race with the most tires still on your car while knocking your competitors tires off their car.
Another event pits the cars in a race where they must circle a flagpole located in turn 1 and turn 4 each lap to win the race. They’ll circle the flagpole while their competitors are bearing down on them to make the same circle around the flagpole.
Track promoter Langley Austin is expecting a lot of bent fenders and a lot of hurt feelings.
