Do you like auto stunts, tricks, and pyrotechnics? If so the Myrtle Beach Speedway has you covered this summer.
For the first time ever, they’re putting on a Wednesday night series called “Wheels of Destruction” and it’s an original thrill show featuring everything from flames and wrecks to school bus racing. As a cherry on top of that sundae, each show ends with fireworks.
It’s no secret that I heart the Myrtle Beach Speedway, so naturally I’m pretty sure this is going to be a big hit, both with locals and visitors. You can learn more and see a cool video in this article I wrote for TheDigitel Myrtle Beach – the best online news source in Myrtle Beach, not that I’m biased.
Gates open at 5 p.m. each Wednesday and the show starts at 7:15 p.m. Admission is $15 for adults and $6 for children ages 13 and under. The series starts today, June 6, 2012 and runs until August 29, 2012.
Update, 6/7/12: I had the opportunity to attend opening night last night and the show was a fantastic combination of nationally known acts mixed with local groups doing amazing things. The guys from MB Drift and Team Myrtle West had me cheering and desperately trying to suppress my motherly instinct to be nervous for them. Seriously, it’s not safe to charge towards each other and whatever speed and slide within inches of one another. It’s generally hazardous to lean your motorcycle so far back in a wheelie with your legs over the handlebar, waving your hands. It was all very cool, though.
The show lasted about two and a half hours. The concession stands were open. There was lots of music and the whole environment was family friendly. At the end of the night, some of the performers were available for photos and autographs.
The show will be welcoming new acts throughout the summer. If you go for the jet car performance bring ear protection. It’s ear-piercing, but pretty impressive. I hear it’s going to melt a car. Nope, you didn’t read that wrong.
