After an exciting and successful first season, a pair of motorsports events are returning to the Appalachian Regional Exposition Center for 2020.
The Blue Ridge Bash demolition derby and the Appalachian Indoor Showdown kart racing events are both back for February 2020. The events will once again be promoted by Jeremy and Ashly Burnett of Millbridge Speedway (NC). The Blue Ridge Bash will also be co-promoted by Carolina Derby Promotions.
The Blue Ridge Bash will take place Saturday, February 22. More than 100 cars have pre-entered the demolition derby event, and registration is currently full.
Pit passes will be $25 for the demolition derby. Grandstand admission will be $20 for adults and $10 for children. Tickets will be available at the door or on Eventbrite.com.
The Appalachian Indoor Showdown will take place one week later on Saturday, February 29. Like last year, the event will feature four classes for both Outlaw Karts and Go Karts.
The four Outlaw Kart classes traditionally seen at Millbridge Speedway will be in action, with the Beginner Box Stocks, Box Stocks, Intermediates and Opens all participating in the event.
For the Go Karts, there will be features for Clone Heavy, Clone Heavy Pro, Predator and Predator Pro racers.
Pit passes will be $20 for the kart racing, with grandstand admission set at $15 for adults and $10 for children.
