@Merrittville •(Friday September 2, 2016 THOROLD, ONTARIO – Merrittville Speedway’s Ballhockey.com 100 lap Enduro accelerated by Niagara College and Monster Truck Show Sunday September 11th will blow your mind with a high octane blast of hard turns and twisted metal.
Monster Trucks Anger Management and Temperature Rising will round out the rare Sunday afternoon overflowing with smashing and crashing that also includes a third truck – the 1/3 scale Mini Monster Truck Firestarter.
“It’s been a year in the making,” said (Merrittville Speedway GM) Erica Bicknell-Jones, “they were all set to join us last season with an all new show but unfortunately they couldn’t stay over for our Wednesday Night rain-date … we can’t wait to see what they have planned.”
The ground is already shaking in anticipation for when the large and in charge Monster Trucks … almost 11 feet tall powered by custom built super-charged almost 600 cubic inch engines take to crushing vehicles and performing stunts you won’t believe.
If you would like to be part of the show … race hard and get dirty – there is still time to get your car ready for the 100 lap Enduro – but you will be busy!
Enduro Racing is part SCIENCE, part STUNT, part INFO-TAINMENT and always 100% ADRENALINE and OUTRAGEOUS FUN.
“It’s pretty basic,” adds Bicknell-Jones, “it’s a street car with safety modification – everything else is stock as you found it … an Enduro Car is not a race car – it’s a car that races. Maybe it’s time you placed an end of summer smack down style beating on your Winter Beater … someone you know may have a wreck that they want to get rid of or your closest automotive recycler may have something for you!
The Ballhockey.com Enduro Qualifiers accelerated by Niagara College will blow your mind with a high octane blast of hard turns and twisted metal. Enduro Racing is part SCIENCE, part STUNT, part INFO-TAINMENT and always 100% ADRENALINE and OUTRAGEOUS FUN.
Now’s the time to push up your sleeves and get your hands dirty as cars will be jacked up, busted apart and pushed to the limit and beyond. You’ll crash, skid, swerve, slam and demolish your way through 100 laps … if you can last that long.
