Holy crud, time is flying by. In just 10 days, we’ll be at M1 Concourse in Pontiac, Michigan for Roadkill Nights, Powered by Dodge.
What will we be doing there? Well, we’re shutting down Woodward Ave, and drag racing on the streets. This year’s race was invite-only, and we had hundreds of applications. Hopefully we narrowed them down to a fantastic show of fast, fun, and uniquely Roadkill cars for your viewing pleasure. If you applied to race, you should have been contacted by now, so congrats if you were accepted. We can’t wait to see you run. Also racing will be NHRA’s Leah Pritchett and Matt Hagan as well as TV host Chris Jacobs, lining up against various TEN show hosts for a celebrity shootout. How will Freiburger, Finnegan, Lucky, Tony, and Mike Musto fare against the pros? Well, uh, um, maybe they’ll get lucky.
It’s too late to sign up to race, but we still have a few car show-n-shine spots left if you want to show off your sweet ride. There are two price points, the base entry which gets you, your ride, and a passenger in for $50, and the deluxe package, which gets you, your ride, and your passenger in plus sends you home with a cool gift bag full of Roadkill swag. That’s $100.
If you’re not in the mood to wash your heap–or more likely for our audience–if it isn’t running on game day, you can still come join the fun for just a ten-spot. Entry includes watching all the racing, access to any of the hosts or celebrities wandering around, all kinds of merch and food and vendor displays, plus the opportunity to go for a Dodge thrill ride with a professional driver taking you out in Demons, Vipers, and Hellcats. It will look cool on your Instagram story. If you’re a Pontiac local, bring your I.D. for a good neighbor discount. Pontiac people get in for just $5. Kids 12 and under are free, so bring all the kiddos.
We’ll have a bunch of Roadkill cars dotted around the venue, including most of your favorites, like the Generals Mayhem and Maintenance, Vette Kart, Stubby Bob, and assuming we don’t break them in filming next week, Freiburger’s Super Bee and Finnegan’s Blasphemi.
Click the link to preregister, or just show up at the gate and pay your money on August 12. We’ll have a full schedule going up soon, but for now, figure on hanging out with us from 10am to 10pm in Pontiac. See you there!
