Night of Destruction crashes at Davenport Speedway this Friday

The most anticipated night of the 2012 racing season will happen this Friday at the Davenport Speedway. Davenport's first-ever Night of Destruction will be held Sept. 14.

The Night of Destruction features "Cheater Races" for the Modified, Street Stock, and 4-Stock regular weekly classes. We've given the tech inspectors the night off and thrown out the rule book for an evening of old-fashioned "run what you've brung" stock car racing.

Following the "Cheater Races", will be the always exciting automotive carnage of the "Trailer Race". The objective of the "Trailer Race" is to knock your competitor's trailer off, while driving around the racetrack. No vehicle to vehicle hitting is allowed.

Post-season racing action continues next Saturday (Sept. 22nd) at the Davenport Speedway, on the half-mile oval with the All-Star Classic. That event is highlighted by the Deery Brothers Summer Series finale. Non-sanctioned IMCA Modifieds, Street Stocks, and 4-Stocks will also be racing at the All-Star Classic.

Friday, Sept. 28, the rescheduled Brockway Mechanical & Roofing Sprint Invaders come to town. The 360 cubic inch winged sprint car warriors will compete in the "East/West Clash of the Best" on the historic Davenport half-mile oval.

The Davenport Speedway is located at the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds, on West Locust Street, in Davenport, Iowa.
