A record amount of fans showed up for the last big event of the season. Many families came to watch the Cruiser Championships, trailer races, stunts and the popular transformers battle it out between good and evil.

Cruiser Championships are always held on the last night of the season. It was a battle for points the entire season with most drivers being only a few points away from each other each week. The cruiser championships are run like any other racing event with the drivers lining up by time. The #44 car of Wierzba and Wierzba took fast time with a 15.053! The #73 of Green and Wheelock was second in time with a 15.173 and the #01 of Kampert and Kampert was third in time with a 15.602.

A consi, semi-feature and feature event was held for the Cruiser class, with one transferring from the consi and two from the semi. #23 of Pezewski and Auclair won the consi transferring into the semi feature where they finished in eleventh. The #49 of West and Spritka took the win in the semi feature with the #10 of Kampert and Kluck in second. The feature event was a great race! Tons of action and great racing maneuvers. The #73 of Green and Wheelock finished first with #14 of Turzinski and Turzinski in second. #27 of Helbach and Helbach took third.

The cruiser champions for the 2006 racing season are #73 of Chuck Green and Doug "Cajun" Wheelock.

Forwards/backwards races were action packed! The race consists of two laps forward, then two laps backward! They ran three heats and a final. Tucker Miller won the event with Scrubby Sullivan in second and Jocko in third.

The kids got the treat of their life as they got to watch real life transformers battle it out on the track. The evil Reptar came to take over earth, but Galactron stopped him in his tracks! The kids sat in awe as Galactron talked to the crowd and battled it out with Reptar.

Wild Willy and the Wild Bunch, a bunch of local daredevils, put on another trailer house jumping stunt. But this year they added even more buses before the trailer house. Wild Willy's new record jump was a total of 115 feet! He didn't quite make it to the trailer house. After getting loose on the gravel coming up the jump his car then nose dived into the last bus and then plummeted to the ground! As soon as the safety crew and ambulance came to his aid he was out of the car waving at the crowd! Driver was fine the car not so good.

The Dupes of Hazzard jump was won by Rob Johnson. Sam Shehan came in second with Richard Lavene in third.

Scrubby Sullivan won the roll over contest for the THIRD year in a row! Sam Shehan finished second and Randy Panoll in third.

The Bus races are always a crowd favorite. This year was an exception with Keith Wosick winning the race.

The trailer races, was a great event once again. They had to stop the race a couple of times to get some of the guys that were stranded out of harms way. At times there was so much action you didn't know which part of the track to watch! There were some great theme trailers this year. Mike Curney took first, with Mike Kaminski in second and Bob Kerstein in third.
