Dave Grayson's Hot Racing Tickets For May 7th

Compiled By Dave Grayson


For the last 60 years, the All American Speedway has been the home of short track racing in the northern California region. They will again live up that reputation this Saturday night by treating their fans to a full evening of old school, but highly exciting, racing divisions featuring the Street Stocks, Bombers, the F 4'S, Hardtops and the Limited Late Models. The front gates will open 4pm followed by racing at 6pm.

General admission tickets for adults, age 18 to 59, are $10. Tickets for seniors, age 60 plus, and juniors, age 6 to 15, are $7. Kids 5 and under will be admitted free. The speedway also offers a budget friendly family pass, priced at $35, which admits two adults and three kids.


If you're the race fans who truly enjoy crashing, bashing and general mayhem that was purposely created, then you're going to love Night Of Destruction at the IEC This Saturday night. This special evening is being presented by the good people from Pick Your Part and Seidner's Collision Centers and features Enduro Car figure 8 racing, Skid Plate racing, and the always fun Trailer racing.

If you're the fans who enjoys regular door to door, bumper to bumper, stock car racing then the IEC also has you covered this Saturday night with a special appearance from their Pick Your Part Late Model division. After spending the winter season winning the Late Model championship at the Havasu 95 Speedway in Arizona, Trevor Hudleston has served notice that he's also chasing after a second title this year at his home track at Irwindale. The Aguora Hills-CA driver goes into Saturday as the division points leader based on two feature wins, that came back to back on the evening of April 16th, along with five top five finishes, However, Huddleston only has a slim eight point advantage over Claremont-CA's Christian McGahee who has a feature win and five top fives. This will be a pair of drivers to keep an eye on when the green flag falls on the division's main event.

The IEC spectator gates will open at 4pm followed by destructive racing at 7pm. Pre sale tickets for adults are $10 and $15 at the gate on Saturday, race day. Children's tickets are $5. Those budget friendly pre sale tickets are available via the speedway's website or can be picked up at the main office located at 500 Speedway Drive in Irwindale.
