Havasu 95 Speedway To Conclude Winter Season With A Night Of Destruction

By Dave Grayson

Bill Rozhon, Promoter of the Havasu 95 Speedway has been smiling a lot these days. After months of overseeing his 2015 -2016 winter racing season he has arrived at one of his favorite nights of the year. This very fun race track, located in beautiful Lake Havasu City-Arizona, will be officially concluding its 2015 - 2016 winter racing season this Saturday night with a time honored tradition Rozhon created many years ago: the season ending Night of Destruction.

The evening includes the speedway's exciting, and sometimes even hilarious, waterless boat race. The object here is to complete the race with a boat attached to your race car. Trailers for the boats are not allowed. The drivers will literally drag the boats on the speedway surface. If by chance a boat is knocked loose from a car, the driver has the option of collecting a wrecked boat lying on the track and push it with their front bumper. Whether the boat is towed or pushed, the object is maintain contact with a boat.

The speedway will also treat its fans to some stock car racing while wrapping up two points championships. Points champions will be officially crowned Saturday night in the speedway's Bandolero and Sam Nichols Electric Factory Stocks. In the Factory Stock standings driver Brent Delay, a seven time feature winner, holds a 16 point advantage over two time feature winner Jose Guevara. In the Bandoleros title race Allison Gay has eight consecutive wins and a 20 point lead over Brock Rogers going into the final night

Adding to the fun will be the presence of the Felon, a monster truck whose intent is to tear up the speedway's infield and destroy any parked car that dares park before it. The evening will conclude with Rozhon's famous fireworks show. A huge thank you goes out to Interstate Batteries and Get It Gear Transmissions for sponsoring this very special annual event.
