Demolition Derby

If you've never been to a demolition derby it is a fun, fast-paced event.  It has been compared to legalized road rage!  The goal is to immobilize your opponent's car by any means necessary within the rules of course, and yes, there are rules!

The competitors can have easily over 100 hours into building their car, hoping to last the 10-15 minutes each round takes.  The ultimate goal is to be the last car moving.

It is a loud, hot, dirty and crazy event so please keep this in mind if you have small children.
