If it smells like radiator fluid, it must be Demo Derby night
We are in the packed Grandstands and the first round of tonight’s Demolition Derby just ended. There is smoke and the aroma of various vehicle fluids in the air. It was a great show! And there is still more to come!
There were 19 small and mid-sized cars crashing around the dirt arena. The cars were newer and less reinforced and welded than the traditional derby tanks. Which meant bumpers and grills and assorted metal and plastic parts flew all over. It was awesome!
I don’t know that I have ever seen nearly 20 cars competing at the same time in a Demolition Derby. While very exciting, it was a bit chaotic for awhile since it wasn’t entirely clear where to look. Crash banging action was everywhere!
We’ve got two forklifts and a tow truck working fast to clear the field for the next round. The classic American cars of the ‘60s and ‘70s are almost ready to enter the arena. Looks like there are 11 of them.
The grand finale will be an RV demo derby with what looks like 3 old campers lumbering around and peeling apart, competing to be the last one alive.
Here we go!
