In preparation for Halloween, Seekonk Speedway dons a haunting guise and sets out a figurative bowl of candy in the form of the Pumpkin Smash Spooktacular. Raw, adrenaline-pumping enduro races combine with gourd-crushing good times to thrill speed demons of all ages. From noon to 2 p.m., spectators arrive dressed as their favorite ghoul to compete in a costume contest for both fans and cars, which face the added challenge of finding a giant who will lend them a sheet big enough for their ghost costume. After the show kicks off, onlookers crowd the stands to cheer their favorite auto during spectator and enduro drags. The competition heats up with car and truck enduros, which pit stock vehicles against each other while limiting their engine and suspension modifications to level the playing field. The titular pumpkin smash brings the event to a climax as vehicles zoom in figure-8s, their tires squealing over piles of the bright orange gourds.

Seekonk Speedway

In 1945, Dr. Anthony Venditti—known as the godfather of New England auto racing—broke ground for the Seekonk Speedway. Today, his wife, son, and grandson carry on his legacy by managing the oval, 1/3-mile track with its 7-foot banking and 420-foot straightaway lengths. They also oversee the track’s concessions, but spectators can tote along their own six-pack coolers of frosty libations in the wheelbarrow full of gold bars they plan to wager during the races.
