“With saturated grounds and the seasonably cold temperatures, we did not want to have fans and competitors come in the cold and have issues getting into and exiting our facility” states General Manager Bob Davidson. “We had the scheduled a fun and exciting event for the Dawn of Destruction” offered Race Director Tom Beales. “Only if Mother Nature would cooperate, we would have loved to have this event to kick off the 2017 season” Beales added. “With Mother’s Day being next week (May 14), we decided not to run the event on that day and focus on our Stock car season opener on May 21st” Davidson said.
Humberstone management has worked hard to reschedule the events that were part of the Dawn of Destruction. The Construction Crush Off will now be part of Opening Night presented by Country 89 on Sunday May 21st. The trailer jump stunt, presented by Cooper Motorsports will be part of the May 28th racing program that will also feature the first Cooper Motorsports Minivans of Mayhem series. The $1000 Enduro presented by ATTAR Metals will now take place on Sunday July 2nd as part of the $1,000 to win Showdown Night sponsored by Brian’s Tire Repair.
Anyone who has pre-registered for the Dawn of Destruction can keep their starting position for the $1,000 to win Enduro Showdown and will receive $25 off their ATTAR Metals Eve of Destruction registration. Anyone who pre-registered and doesn’t want to participate in the $1,000 to win Showdown will have until May 21st to request a refund. The $1,000 to win Showdown will only be open to the first 60 registered competitors. Any remaining spots will be opened after May 21st. The top five finishers in the $1,000 to win Enduro will be locked into the top five positions for the ATTAR Metals Eve of Destruction in September.
The Enduro qualifier that was scheduled for Sunday June 18th will be removed from the schedule.
