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.

1997 F250 7.3 ZF5 2wd 4.10 430K miles Dr. Ron Paul 2012!!
this will be my 3rd year. we have one every year at the county fair. first car was a k body plymouth, last year was my old geo metro and this year i have s 88 park ave, and maybe my nova. our derby runs 2 nights, everything from small cars, big cars, to small and big trucks to mini and full size vans, and sometimes a few suv also.
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
