Last year’s WMUL Car Bash had a car painted blue for Coastal Carolina, Marshall’s 2022 Homecoming game opponent

Destruction is returning to Marshall’s campus as the annual WMUL Car Bash is set to take place on Buskirk Field on Thursday, Sept. 28.

“This is our 21st annual Car Bash, and I am super excited to be putting it on,”  said Makaylah Wheeler, Communications graduate and WMUL Station Manager. “Everyone is available to come. Community members, students, staff and faculty – it’s open to anyone and everyone.”

The event will take place between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. As with previous years, the event is being hosted by Marshall’s student radio station, WMUL, who will provide sledgehammers and safety equipment for faculty and students looking to take out their anger on a car decorated in Old Dominion’s colors.

Wheeler recruited members of the freshman dorms to help prepare the car for the event by busting out windows and marking up the vehicle.

The car will be provided by Kelly’s Radiator Service, and what remains of the vehicle will be towed during the homecoming parade.

“We have a full event schedule for this week of everything the University is doing on campus, but there is nothing else like this,” Wheeler said.
