Eve of Destruction

by Dave

Once again, I must say thank you to Elko Speedway for bringing us one of the greatest events imaginable: the Eve of Destruction. Many races were run, from cars to motorcycles. Monster trucks smashed old cars, school buses raced, dirt bike riders did trick jumps, but the highlight of the evening was the spectator race.

The two fastest cars were a 90’s Camaro and a 90’s Corvette. The Camaro won the first matchup. Later the same group of cars came out for a second chance. This time, the Corvette forced the Camaro up the track by taking the turn very wide. Instead of braking and saving his car, the Camaro tried to push on and ended up putting it into the wall, causing some serious damage. He did not look happy after stopping. The crowd, however, loved it.
