Demolition Derby Tickets

A thrilling motorsport is on its way to you in the form of Demolition Derby.

Five or more vehicles (cars) take part in the competition with the sole purpose of banging their cars into one another. The one car that remains functional at the end is crowned the winner. There aren’t too many sports around the world that provide more gripping action than this. It is a thrill-a-minute ride from the start all the way to its conclusion. If you have a daredevil in you, then book your Demolition Derby tickets and watch the fireworks go off live.

Demolition Derby Tickets

Demolition Derby is a famous American motorsport that draws thousands of spectators every year. Held annually at the West End Fair Demolition Derby in Gilbert, Pennsylvania and many other locations, it is an event that is diverse in nature but at its core involves drivers literally crashing into each other. The driver whose vehicle remains operational until the end of the event wins it. A brutal battle between vehicles and drivers, thousands of Demolition Derby tickets are sold each year for the event.

Demolition Derby, a motorsport with cars deliberately crashing and destroying each other, has gained fame in the US since its beginning. A last man standing event, it was founded in the US and spread like wildfire to Europe where it is known as banger racing. One of the most exciting motorsports in the world, the intentional destruction of cars has grown to become a sport many have fallen in love with. Drivers often make use of the front and rear of their cars to ram into other cars.

The first Demolition Derby was held during the fifties on American race tracks and during fairs by promoters. However, some events are said to have taken place way back in the thirties where they used Ford Model T vehicles that were worn out. The derby is said to have originated from a sport that involved colliding old locomotives during the nineteenth century. By the sixties, the sport was taking place all over the world with the first derby in Australia attracting more than twenty thousand people. The World Championship Demolition Derby was also held since the sixties; broadcasted live by ABC as part of its Wide World of Sports program.

In 1972, Los Angeles played host to a unique derby which involved new cars. It was held at the Los Angeles Coliseum with drivers Bobby Unser, Mario Andretti and A.J. Foyt. In 1997, The Nashville Network hosted the program Motor Madness, featuring derbies from all over the US. Special derbies under the Motor Madness banner were also organized, featuring new rules such as the most offensive hits winning the event. Following the new millennium, new TV programs evolved such as Carpocalypse on Spike TV and The Speed Channel’s demolition derbies.

In 2006, the NAPA Auto Parts Crash for Cash Series was started by Mike Weatherford Promotions, a company led by Dustin Swayne and Mike Weatherford. This competition offered a handsome cash prize to the winner. Derby events were organized in various cities with the finals seeing more than a hundred cars participating. Since then, this series of cars destroying cars has grown to become one of the most popular motorsports in the US.

Prize money for the NAPA Auto Parts Crash for Cash Series has increased with time. Each year, more than seventy five thousand drivers take part in demolition derbies of which over two thousand are held in the US. Other famous demolition derby events include the TNN Motor Madness series.

Rules of the sport are formed according to the kind of derby. The types of cars are always specified; from trucks to minivans to full size cars. Each driver has to wear a helmet and seat belt as well as cages and roll over bars in the vehicles. Events are usually kicked off with drivers racing around an oval track or facing each other rear to rear. Drivers have to crash into a car every two minutes otherwise they are disqualified. Not only does the last car to hit another car emerge as the winner but drivers with special hits are also awarded.

In most derbies, rolling a car is often not allowed, but special rollover competitions are held in which cars have to do just that. In most derbies, drivers are not allowed to crash into another driver’s door as this often leads to disqualification. Some derbies allow teaming up whereas some don’t. Special events, such as Figure 8 Races, are also held on tracks shaped like the number eight. School buses are featured in these races. One of the most popular tracks for this event is New York’s Riverhead Raceway. All in all, this is a sport worth buying Demolition Derby tickets by those fond of watching vehicles brutally destroying other vehicles.

The Demolition Derby honored fallen deputy Mark Burbridge in July 2017. Killed in the line of duty, his car was used in the West Fair 2017 Demolition Derby. As a tribute to the local hero, Deputy Burbridge’s car was included in the derby as a reminder of his courage and contribution towards his community Council Bluffs, Iowa.
