Are you funny? Do you like to write and tell jokes?  Do you aspire to be a comedian?   We’ll give you an opportunity to try during the Mickey Thompson “Token Joke Day”, Thursday October 18th!  All you need to do is submit your best joke, (written ideally on paper!) and bring to race control during the course of the day on Thursday.  Either you or one of our announcers can or will read your joke(s).  To protect delicate psyches, we reserve the right to edit and or otherwise sensor “crass” submissions!  Our panel of judges will review all entries to determine the winner.  The winner will receive a set of Mickey Thompson Rear Slicks!  2017 winner, Dustin Tackett, Shelby OH.

Friday October 19th is Trick Flow Specialties “Limerick Day”, which allows all of our creative writers to craft a poem that involves drag racing! The poem must follow the standard limerick style and cannot be longer than 5 lines.  All entries must be submitted to race control by end of the day in order to be read over the PA and to be considered a candidate.  The overall winner will receive one Trick Flow Track Heat Carburetor.  Our 2017 Winner was Dan & Michelle Dynmek, Shelby Twp, MI.

It wouldn’t be Halloween without carved pumpkins, so we’re having a Pumpkin Carving party in the Fellowship Tent from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.  We will supply the pumpkins; you bring the utensils and the creativity!  All the carved pumpkins will be used to decorate the park on Saturday!  You are welcome to take your creation home with you on Sunday!

“Fright Night”, the largest Drag Racing Halloween Party in the world, begins when the sun rises on Saturday October 20thEveryone is in costume; the facility and pit areas will be decorated with a Halloween theme.  It’s not only a full day of racing, as we will begin first round of eliminations, there will be a lot of partying going on as well!

The Scavenger Hunt seems to get bigger and bigger.  Participants can go into the Budweiser Guest Services beginning at 2pm to pick up their list.  All entries must be returned by 4:30pm.  This year Budweiser will be giving away a prize package to the overall winner.

Thermo-Tech/Kelley's Island Venture Resort Kid’s Halloween Costume Contest begins promptly at 5:00 p.m. All kids will receive a participant ribbon for just dressing up.  Trophies will be awarded to the top 3 in five different categories (prettiest, scariest, most original, cutest and hand made), between two age groups (1-6 and 7+).  

During the week, racers will begin designing, building and decorating their race rigs and pit areas in a theme they hope will capture the judges attention so they can take home a Classic Gremlin Trophy.  Judging of pit areas and race rigs will take place Saturday late afternoon between 5 and 8 p.m.  All entries must be registered in guest services (on the side the display is pitted on) by Saturday at 3 p.m., so our judges do not overlook your area!  2017 Best Decorated Pit Area was awarded to Barbara Farmer, Belleville MI "Cemetery with Mausoleum"; Best Decorated Rig went to Anderson/Bennett Families, Norwalk OH "House of Horrors". 

The highlight of the day for the kids arrives at 7 p.m. when all motorized traffic comes to a screeching halt as the ‘witching hour’ begins.  For one hour, kids of all ages can visit over 1,000 homes for ‘trick or treating’.   Kids you are going to need pillowcases and wagons to carry all the candy you can collect!  You’ll even get to explore haunted trailers and pit areas along the way!

But what about the Big Kids…don’t worry we didn’t forget you.  The Gordon Food Service “Adult Witching Hour” which includes an adult costume contest and a free dinner begins at 8 p.m.  The overall winner in each of the following categories:  funniest, most original, scariest and sexiest, will take home a Classic Gremlin.

The fun doesn’t stop there.  We go back track side for the ever popular ‘Trick Flow’ Bumper Draggin’ Air Show,  $500 and a Classis Gremlin will be given to the racer who performs the highest wheelie and to the racer who can carry the wheelie the furthest! The 2017 Furthest and Highest winner was rained out! Mother Nature didn't play nice that evening! Moto Lenz Photos provides the winners of the Wheelie Contest a poster of their car!

Hummel Motorsports is offering a $150 Price package and a plaque to the FIRST VICTIM in each of the Main Event classes (Pro, Super Pro, Super Bike, Sportsman and Stock).

The four best losing packages in 1st round of Super Pro, Pro, Super Bike and Sportsman will qualify for the Injector Experts "Last Chance Race" which will takes place on Sunday afer round two is complete.  $500 winner takes all!

Sunday, October 21st is Survivor’s Day!  All classes will run to completion, including Injector Experts Last Chance Race, where the four best losing reaction times from round #1 in each of the four classes will have an opportunity to win $500!   After all the class champions have been crowned, each class champion will then race off to see who will be our next Grand Champion!  The overall winner will have four prize packages to select from as your reward in addition to the Classic Gremlin!
