The weekend when Penticton’s Speedway gives away a 2011 Ford Mustang has finally arrived.

Sponsored by the Best Damn Sports Bar and Grill, action at the Speedway will get revved up at 2 p.m. for championship final, Day of Destruction featuring Hornets, Streetstocks, plus Hit to Pass cars pulling boats and travel trailers.

Organizers promise mass carnage on the track that is a must see.

“The big thing is giving away the 2011 Mustang,” said Speedway owner Johnny Aantjes. “We should have a pretty good crowd.

Adding to the entertainment is Steve Gray from Dan’s Tires in Kelowna, who will be driving a car Dukes of Hazard style through a motorhome as Aantjes said.

“We could have some small clean-up with that,” said Aantjes. “It will be a little crowd pleaser. These guys are crazy.”

Gray is looking to clear both sides of the 40-foot motor home, that will be secured by vehicles on each end.

“We have a lot of fun at the track,” joked Gray, on why he is doing it. “We have to do something a little bit crazy, so why not?”

The Penticton Speedway will be operating a full concession and tickets can be purchased at the gate. Family packs are available. For more details check www.pentictonspeedway.com.
