Irwindale Speedway 

Irwindale, California

October 26, 2013


Irwindale, Calif. -- A sellout crowd came out to celebrate an early Halloween on Irwindale's annual "Night of Destruction" presented by Pick Your Part ... and the night lit up with wild action from the first race right on through to the last ... punctuated by runs by Pick Your Part's crackling top fuel dragster and their ear-bending, turbojet-powered pickup truck.   
The Trailer Race brought out a number of fine examples of the breed.  Gary  Adkins Photo

Although a number of the evening's features were billed as "fun/crazy/destruction" events, each and everyone of them rolled out to be full-on motor competitions with every lap (and every corner of the DD battlefields) in contention every second, and the huge, appreciative crowd standing on their feet more often than they were sitting in their seats!
