Wade Brown is the coordinator for the Demolition Derby. This event continues to grow in popularity. The success of this event has lead to major improvements on the fairgrounds.The demolition derby continues to be exciting and pleasing to the packed crowds.

Demolition Derbies originated in the United States and quickly spread to other western nations. Demolition derbies were first held at various fairs and race tracks by independent promoters in the 1950s. There are unconfirmed reports of events occurring as far back as the 1930s utilizing the abundant supply of worn out Ford Model T’s.The originator of the concept for demolition derbies is disputed.While rules vary from event to event, the typical demolition derby consists of five or more drivers competing by deliberately ramming their vehicle into another.

The driver whose vehicles is still operational is awarded the victory.To make the event safer, all glass is removed from the vehicle, and deliberately. The driver’s door is often required to be painted white numbers or orange blaze, or contrasting colors, for visibility.

Bonner County EMS and the Sandpoint Fire Department firefighters are always standing by if services are needed.

Great food will be served and the Odom Cantina will be serving ice cold beer.
