Lucas Oil Speedway off this week before closing season with O'Reilly Auto Parts Monster Trucks Eve of Destruction
WHEATLAND, MO. (Oct. 11, 2021) - Following three marathon days of racing at the 8th annual Summit USRA Nationals powered by MyRacePass, Lucas Oil Speedway will take this weekend off to gear up for the traditional closing event of the season.
The O’Reilly Auto Parts Outlaw Nationals Eve of Destruction is coming up Oct. 23, featuring eight of the nation’s most-powerful Monster Trucks, plus an assortment of other demonstrations of power, speed, finesse - and even some trick or treating - to cap off the motorsports year.
“The Eve of Destruction has become a traditional way to wrap up our season and it’s one that fans always highly anticipate,” Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Danny Lorton said. “This year is sure to be no exception with a great lineup of Monster Trucks headlining the show.”
The eight Monster Trucks invited to this year’s show include Avenger, Barbarian, Black Pearl, Wild Side, Tailgator, Miss Over Bored, Brutus and Over Bored.
Also returning is the popular jet-powered truck Shockwave, with an ability to melt down cars with its three jet engines pumping out 36,000 horsepower. Shockwave will put on a fire and smoke show after dark that will leave lasting memories for all.
Other parts of the program include:
Trick or Treat: Fans are encouraged to wear their favorite Halloween costume and trick or treat with the show performers at the Pit Party on the track prior to the action.
Monster Truck Back Flip: The back flip ramp will return this year with the trucks putting on a display or flips.
Pro and Stock Tuff Truck Racing: Local weekend warriors and professionals from around the country will battle it out. The competition is open and drivers wanting to enter their Tuff Truck can call (417) 887-9400 for entry info.
Pit Party and Autograph Session: Arrive early and take part in the Pit Party on the track and get autographs or take photos with your favorite trucks and drivers.
Mighty Monster Truck Ride: For just $10, fans can take the ride of a lifetime, circling the track in a real monster truck during the Pit Party, at intermission or after the show.
