Gas City I-69 Speedway’s ‘Night of Destruction Presented by Shrouts Auto and Recovery’ Featuring Monster Trucks, School Bus Races, and More Is Set for Saturday Night, Aug. 14; Advance Tickets Can Be Purchased Online Nowadmin
GAS CITY, Ind., Aug. 3 — In what promises to be one of the most entertaining events in the 29-year history of Gas City I-69 Speedway, a night of power and destruction is set for Saturday night, Aug. 14 at the multi-purpose motorsports facility.
The “Night of Destruction Presented by Shrouts Auto and Recovery” (Marion, Ind.) will feature the popular monster trucks and wild school bus racing. In addition, a mini-van demo derby, a rollover competition, and a trailer race will complete the competition side of the evening.
Crushing cars and their popular “freestyle” program will be the key components of the monster trucks’ performances. Headlining the show is Hall of Famer Allen Pezo in “Predator,” along with TV superstar “Strait Jacket” and fan-favorite “Pounder.”
School buses will compete in a feature event and will provide some behemoth “rubbin’ and racin’” moments usually not seen in the track’s weekly racing events.
Mini-van drivers from throughout the Midwest will mix it up for a $400 first-place payday in a traditional demo-derby format.
In what promises to be a crowd pleaser, various types of vehicles will navigate a special ramp in attempting to roll over as many times as possible to win cash and bragging rights.
The wild and whacky trailer race will feature vehicles pulling a trailer such as a boat trailer, a camper, or other types of trailers. The object is to separate the trailer from the tow vehicle of the other competitors. The winner is whoever still has their trailer after a specified number of laps.
All action takes place around the quarter-mile, clay oval.
Gates will open at 4 p.m. and the show begins at 7 p.m.
