Eve of Destruction 10 is Here
Booms, not vrooms take center stage Saturday, August 4 as Meridian Speedway hosts its tenth annual Eve of Destruction. For the first time in a decade the World Famous Trailer Races return to the asphalt quarter-mile oval to anchor the Eve of Destruction festivities. The thrills and spills
continue with the Big Daddy’s Barbecue Hornets versus The Gauntlet, and The Beast Jet Dragster Hornet Meltdown. To cap the tenth annual Eve of Destruction madness, Meridian Speedway lights up the skies with a full-length firework show.
Before there were World Famous Boat Races, there were World Famous Trailer Races. The object is simple: beat, bang, and bash your competitors’ trailer to smithereens before they can repay the favor. What ensues is the wildest, hardest-hitting spectacle at Meridian Speedway.
A swarm of Big Daddy’s Barbecue Hornets take on The Gauntlet, an armored van twice the size of its pursuers. Will David take down Goliath under the speedway lights, or will The Gauntlet weather the storm and take the checkered flag?
How long can a Hornet withstand the 1,500 degree blast of afterburner from The Beast’s Westinghouse jet engine? Find out as the Hornet Meltdown blasts into the quarter-mile.
Before fireworks can light up the sky the Royal Purple Modifieds, Domino’s Legends, Teleperformance Claimer Stocks, and Bombers put on their own Eve of Destruction pyrotechnics.
Trevor Cristiani dominated the Royal Purple Modified Series’ last trip to Meridian. But Jonathan Gomez has an average finish of 1.6 in his last three events at the quarter-mile oval.
Ethan Jones has been perfect in the Domino’s Legends division this year. The young Meridian driver has won every main event he’s entered, and looks to add the Eve of Destruction 10 hardware to his collection.
With two main event victories Josh Fanopoulos has climbed his way into the Teleperformance Claimer Stock point lead, but has a mirror full of stiff competition if he wants to win his third.
Anything can happen when the wild and wacky Bombers take to the quarter-mile. Don’t miss these built-in-a-day racers as they round out Saturday’s action.
You can even get in on the Eve of Destruction 10 thrills with the Spectacular Drags. Bring a helmet and a heavy right foot if you think your daily driver has what it takes to defeat the Concrete Jungle.
