'Divorcee Demolition Derby' to close tonight's racing

Senoia Raceway promoter Tim Moses has delved into his magic bag again for tonight’s schedule with a one-of-a-kind feature to follow a full schedule of racing.


The 3/8-mile dirt track hosts the “Divorcee Demolition Derby,” a crash-filled event that will pit former spouses against one another in demolition derby cars.


“It will be the ex-husbands against the ex-wives,” said Moses. “It will be like a heavyweight bout using two ton gloves.”


Three teams of ex-spouses will square off against one another in a demolition derby. The husbands will compete in blue cars while the ladies will be taking their aim from the behind the wheel of pink-painted cars. The numbers adorning each ex-couples cars will be the length of their marriage.


“If they were married for two years,” explained Moses, “The Divorcee Demolition Derby will take place after the conclusion of tonight’s racing card which will include the Jodeco Auto Sales Late Models, Newnan Bonding B Cadets, Summit Racing Equipment Hobby Stocks, Mini Stocks, Bombers and Modified Mini.


Grandstand tickets are $12 and children 6-12 are $5. Pit passes are $25 for adults and $12 for children three through twelve.


Trackside parking is available on a first come, first serve basis and includes admission into the pit area.


Pit gates open tonight at 5 p.m., and grandstands at 6. Hot laps will roll off at 7:30 p.m and the first green flag flies at 8.
