Heading Back to Hickory

Screen-Shot-2017-05-01-at-9.37.37-PM.png

HICKORY, NC – The Hickory Motor Speedways office phone is about to start working over time with The Knights of Destruction set to return. This time around they are teaming up with the bandits big rig series to bring semi truck racing back to Hickory Motor Speedway.

The Knights of Destruction have made an appearance at HMS for the past 5 years with strong attendee records. In 2015 the show started to experience overwhelming demand and had a big issue turning thousands of fans away. In 2016 they decided to run two events during the year and ever since the shows has seen a much more spectator friendly result.

“We made the decision to add a second date last year and this year,” HMS general manager Kevin Piercy said. “The reasons we decided to add two dates is it has become so popular that by adding a second event makes it convenient for fans to see the show.”

The schedule for this years event includes school bus racing, Semi truck racing, Jester's monster truck, a trailer race, the demolition derby, and so much more destruction.

“This is a whole different animal to what our normal racing is,” Piercy said. “Everybody likes to see something torn up and they run multiple races. This has grown each year to where we have a lot more competitors come in to run the flag-pole race, skid-car race and other things.”

The reason this event seems to do well is because it does its best to give the fans something new and different but in the end what they want to see. This event tip toes between the lines of the stunt show / monster truck rally / stock car race / and at the same time its none of those. This event prides its self on not being a mix of those things, its happy to say its the best part about them. The stock car race without the cost to enter, the monster truck rally without the ticket price to attend, and the stunt show without the one and done factor. It's an event anyone can enter and everyone can enjoy.

The event will start at 7 p.m.

Early online tickets are $17 for adults and 12-and-under are $10.

Week of show tickets are $20 for adults and 12-and-under are $10.

Pre-sale gates open at 4 p.m. and public gates open at 5 p.m.

For more information about admission, call 828-464-3655.

Destruction in Desoto

Desoto Speedway has seen its fair share of racing over the last few years but nothing has compared to what’s in store on April 22nd. For the first time ever the high octane, car crashing racing series “The Knights of Destruction” comes to Desoto Speedway. Selling out shows all along the east coast, this event is expecting a standing room only crowd. This Night of Destruction is a family friendly event jammed packed with action & entertainment full of destruction and absurd races you have never seen before, you won’t want to miss out on what everyone is raving about. 

 

On tap for the Cox Chevrolet Night of Destruction presented by James Carter Attorney at Law is the Desoto debut of the School Bus Figure 8 Race presented by Take Aim Gun, now with the fastest buses Desoto has ever seen. The Figure 8 School Bus race is a fan favorite and that alone is worth the ticket price. Come hear the roar of the Gunslinger monster truck up close and personal when Scott Hardsock brings his big bad truck to Desoto. Gunslinger is gearing up for his first ever Freestyle of destruction run at the track and he’s not holding back. Lighting up the night will be the green mamba jet car as he kicks off his last year running his jet engine turbo dragster. The Green mamba will be burning hot laps and melting a car down to the ground with his final flame fire-filled finale. That’s not all, also planned is a crazy game of car soccer, the gauntlet race, a hard hitting demolition derby and so much more excitement! 

 

Be sure to get your tickets now, not only because this event has a potential of selling out but because you can still save money! For a limited time, the first 500 adult tickets will be discounted to $15. Hurry because they are selling fast! Adult tickets will be $20 after that.

 

Also for sale for the first time ever are $30 VIP PIT PARTY TICKETS.  That ticket gets you closer to the action than ever before with a Pit Party just for VIP tickets holders, a meet and greet with Gunslinger, School bus rides around the track, VIP parking spot with tailgating permission and reserved back stretch seating. 

 

We have also partnered up with local businesses to help make this event a success. We would like to give a special thanks to Stepp's Towing for supplying us with vehicles needed for destruction and the Red Market Flea Market for donating the camper for the boat and camper trailer race. 

 

You do not want to miss your chance to witness one of the biggest night of destruction Florida has ever seen. If you are still reading this, what are your waiting for? Get your tickets now at www.TOUROFDESTRUCTION.com and you can thank me later.
