Madera, Ca. (10-22-16) - The Pumpkin Smash has become a family tradition at the LoanMart Madera Speedway and the 10th edition of this fun event set a record for kids coming out to the fastest 1/3 mile in the west.

The night kicked off with fans enjoying the wild barrel race, or also known as redneck road racing and after 30 crazy laps around the flagpole inside the barrel it was James Cooke that was crowned the 2016 Barrel King of the 10th annual Pumpkin Smash.

The Madera Hobby/Cart Addictions off road RC truck race was up next in the action packed night, and as the truck teams were setting up their race course it was time for the annual kids costume contest. With hundreds of kids lined up for the contest, the DB sound meter was the judge as the crowd applause was the measuring stick to narrow the field down to the top three contestants. When the roaring of the crowd was all said and done, there was a little Viking and a proud papa holding the big trophy for the costume contest. Madera Hobby then proceeded to give away a dozen remote control cars to twelve lucky kids via a ticket draw.

Following the RC truck race it was time for the annual trick or treat through the pits and then time for the on track PUMKIN SMASH. Once the kids made a huge mess on the track turning the place orange it was time to add soap and water and the result was a very slippery race surface for the Robert Reagan tribute enduro. The race ended on a lap with a one as the cars made 221 laps around the speedway in slip and slide fashion paying tribute to Robert.

When the Pumpkin parts settled, it was Jason Sitton that was crowned champion of the 2016 Pumpkin Smash. As a footnote, Jason was one of a handful of four cylinder cars in the field running against the big V8's in the 10th annual Pumpkin Smash.

The Pumpkin Smash marked the last race of the 2016 racing season at Madera that included eighteen nationally televised race events from the speedway. Fans can catch Madera Racing on MAVTV all winter long to enjoy the action.

2016 was a record setting year for the speedway selling out area motels/hotels, and helping Madera merchants with the large volume of race teams and fans making their way to the fastest 1/3 mile in the west during this historic season.
