Demo derby draws big crowds
PRINCETON — The most unique attraction at the 158th Bureau County Fair in Princeton is the demolition derby, set for 3 p.m. Aug. 25.
Demolition derbies always attract more people than any other event at the county fair because its fun for both drivers and spectators. “This is an opportunity to break every traffic law there is and maybe get paid for it.” The object is simple. Two rows of cars line up, rear bumper to rear bumper. When the flag drops, they race toward each other and meet in a huge traffic accident. Drivers try to knock out all the other cars before they can knock him or her out. The spectators watching get as much of a kick out of the carnage as the drivers, picking their favorites and cheering them on.
The derby is produced by the fair and complete rules are available on the fair’s website at www.bureaucountyfair.com, or by calling Jason Floyd at 815-590-8873.
