Final day of racing approaching at the Penticton Speedway

The Penticton Speedway is closing in on the final race of their 50th season, with the Halloween-themed finale on Oct. 27.

Fans are invited to come to the track in their best costumes. They won’t be alone; the cars get dressed up for the holiday too, with ghosts, dogs, and pirates all having made appearances in previous Halloween races.

Hornets, Street Stock, and Hit-to-pass categories will be at the race as usual.

The Speedway’s penultimate race ran on Sunday Oct. 14, and despite the morning rain and chill in the air, there was no problem when the tires hit the asphalt.

The last day at races starts at 2 p.m., with the hit-to-pass racing. The final race will be their Eve of Destruction, where the hit-to-pass drivers add trailers to their mix of madness; whoever crosses the finish line first, or has the last trailer standing wins.
