Circle Track Sentras

When a car has been totaled by a renter it used to sit on our spare lot for years.  A few parts were used to fix other cars but usually it just sat.  Now our Kihei Rent A Car mechanics/pit crew have put those cars back to work!  Once a month, at Paradise Speedway  racetrack in central Maui, we race those cars on a dirt circle track.

All the glass is removed from the cars, chains put on to hold the doors shut, a hole is cut in the hood so a fire can be easily extinguished if necessary, and a bright coat of spray paint is applied.  Each car gets painted with a theme in mind: Elmo, Driver’s Ed Student, Kitty Cat, Monster Drink, Rasta Car, Tigger the Tiger, Maui Girl, and Starsky and Hutch are just a few cars Kihei Rent A Car Racing has created and raced.

But, at the end of the racing season those cars are put to their final test: a Demolition Derby.  The last car running (barely) wins.  The last two seasons Kihei Rent A Car has won the derby with 1999 Nissan Sentras.  Both women ended up with shiny trophies and sore bodies to prove it. All of the demolished cars end up being crushed at the local scrap metal baseyard.  Thus, the automobile circle of life continues.

Here’s this season’s schedule if you’d like to come out for a fun evening:

May 4th – Saturday Night Race 6:30pm
