TEAM DEMOLITION DERBY TOURNAMENT OF DESTRUCTION RETURNS FOR 15th YEAR TO HEADLINE THE ROUTE 66 RACEWAY DIRT OVAL SCHEDULE
Monster Truck Mayhem Will Also Be Added to Route 66 Raceway’s Dirt Oval Schedule in 2014
Route 66 Raceway™ today announced its 2014 dirt oval schedule, highlighted by the return of the Team Demolition Derby® Tournament of Destruction in addition to a thrilling new summer event. Monster Truck Mayhem Summer Truck Fest @ 66 arrives on the dirt oval Saturday, August 9, featuring high-powered, car-crushing entertainment for the entire family.
With a show time of 7:00 p.m., The Monster Truck Mayhem Summer Truck Fest @ 66 kicks off with a free tailgate party from 4:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m., allowing fans to meet the drivers and receive autographs and photos with the Monster Trucks. If you’re a proud pickup owner, Monster Truck Mayhem wants you to participate. Activities open to the fans include Truck & Trailer Races, where competitors race derby-style with their truck and tagalong. If you think your truck can stand its ground, enter in the Truck Tug, a “tug of war” style competition to really prove your worth. The Bare Bones Truck demo is as simple as it sounds, no extra modifications or enhancements – just bring your bare bones truck and show the crowd what you’ve got. Lastly, polish up your pickup for our Truck Show Corral; everyone is welcome and there is no charge to participate. Registration and additional information regarding participation will be available at Route66Raceway.com as the event approaches.
