'Eve of Destruction' kicks off Birch Run Speedway and Event Center opening
BIRCH RUN, Mich. - Another season began Friday at the newly named Birch Run Speedway and Event Center.
Formerly known as Dixie Motor Speedway, Friday was the ‘Eve of Destruction’.
It included chain gang races, crash cars and a figure eight race.
The track is under new ownership.
General Manager Mike Szukhent says there's been lots of updates to the facility.
"This season is a growing season...we're taking over the event center on the calendar right now, and then we're going to build upon that, and hopefully next week we'll be running every Friday night starting at 2018,” said Szukhent.
The next event at Birch Run Speedway and Event Center is July 14 with super late models and top speed ‘modifieds’ on the track.
