Any Demo Derby drivers in here?

Well I just ran in my first demo last Saturday, and man I am still pumped off of that adrenline, I ran a 1983 Olds 98 with a 307, I got 4th, cuz my stupid motor caught on fire and burned up my hot wire.

I never even seen a derby in person. That must be fun though, I would have a blast doing something like that.

Haha, I bet. It would be a perfect way to vent any road rage.

My dad did them. It was the late 60's early 70's. That was when they were all in the big circle. They were held in Cloverdale and Vancouver BC. He was partial to 51 and 52 Chevys.

I just began watching them do it at the county fair....the "lot" looks too small for the amount of cars competing. Dad said that "back in the day" they used to have it in the grandstand parking lot within the circle track and there was some major damage going on. Probly too many injuries/deaths, so they confined it to smaller area with the same
# of cars....still a blast to watch
