Eve of Destruction Competitor Update
Dixie Motor Speedway has elected to maintain the 2014 Eve of Destruction (EOD) rulebook. EOD rules will remain the same as the previous season in a continuing effort to minimize the cost of competing for race teams. The unchanged rules will be in effect for all EOD divisions including; Chain-Gang, Crash Cars, Flag Pole and Trailer F-8’s. All technical rules will remain the same for the enduro class, including Dixie Motor Speedway allowing both the fuel injected and carbureted engines.
Dixie Motor Speedway is excited to announce, this season, the enduro race will make the switch from the oval, to the figure eight track. “The figure eight enduro will add a new exciting element to the show for the fans, while simultaneously leveling the playing field for the drivers” stated Dixie Motor Speedway promoter Mike Kern. There will also be changes in the purse, a 60% increase in start money for this season. All EOD events will now pay $40 to start. The season opening event at the Dixie Motor Speedway will be Friday, June 5th for the first ever Eve of Destruction enduro figure-8, brought to you by Draper Auto-Saginaw, MI. All EOD classes will be in action including the School Bus Figure-8.

Alan Keith Dixon
Dixon, Alan Keith 4/1/1949 - 10/12/2014 Flint
Alan Keith Dixon, age 65 of Flint, MI. passed Sunday October 12, 2014 from cancer. Survived by sister, Roxanne Dixon, sons Cameron, Eric, & Aaron (Mandi) Dixon, several grand children & one great grand daughter. He is preceded in death by his parents Ruth Fay (Felton) Dixon, Wilbur Lee Dixon, daughter Tonya Fay Dixon, & son A Jay Dixon. In lieu of services Alan wished to donate his remains & be cremated. Thank you for your prayers!
Al was one of the original School Bus Figure Eight pioneers in Michigan, back when Dixie started them many years ago. He was a great competitor and was always a threat to win...as long as he kept his bus together. Back then, Al usually had the biggest motor and definitely had the loudest one. Dixie still races one of Al's buses, and just like Al, it still is a threat to win. We will race it in his honor always.
There will be a get-together at the Old Country Buffet in the Courtland Center (Court and Center) in Flint on Sunday, October 19 from 2-4 pm in his memory. No reservations needed. Any questions please call Evonne @ 810-397-2822
Friday, August 15th
By Larry Loynes
As always, it was another smok’n hot night at the Dixie as a full house was on hand to witness the Draper Chevrolet Eve of Destruction Night at the Races on Friday, August 15th.
Jimmy Bass and Danny Smith kicked off the night with a win in the Chain Gang Race while Cam and Cory King won the Push Car Race. Bass continued his winning ways; holding off Josh Delong to take the 35-lap Enduro and the Tire Race. But Delong had success as well, as he was victorious in the Flag Pole Race and the Figure-8 Trailer Race.
Ted Kraynak thrilled the crowd, winning the Burn Out Contest as he toasted and roasted both rear tires off his 1972 Chevy Laguna! Mike Szwed capped off the night beating out Mikey Tausch and Tony Conrad to win the School Bus Figure-8.
Dixie’s season finale is Saturday, September 6th featuring the Michigan Corn Growers Eve of Destruction along with the $1,000-to-win Bomber/Pure Stock Invitational. For more info call 989-624-9778 or go to dixiemotorspeedway.com.
