"Darkness falls across the land, the midnight hour is close at hand. Creatures crawl in search of blood, to terrorize y'alls neighborhood. Grizzly ghouls from every tomb, are closing in to seal your doom." Yeah I know, I didn't use lyrics from the song the event is named after but you can't beat the spoken word excellence of Vincent Price.
I mentioned before about making KOTH into a monthly event sort of deal, and this is the beginning of that. To celebrate the yearly tradition of everybody's favorite excuse to dress up and pig out on candy, KOTH is putting on it's very own Halloween get together. But not just any sort of get together, 14 of the wildest creatures and characters on 4 wheels are set to do battle in the newly constructed Big Sky Fairgrounds & Motorsports Park in Missoula, Montana (this is a fictional facility just for the record). Candy, costumes, and car crushing carnage, what better way to celebrate All Hallow's Eve!

I'm really looking forward to kicking off the new era of KOTH, and believe me when I say we are taking it to a whole new level.
