Participating in Grandstand Events, the Carnival or Wine Tasting requires the purchase of tickets for those activities & ticket prices go up at the gate.
Demolition Derby by Mackenzie Dodge
One of my FAVORITE events at the Mesa County Fair is the Demo Derby powered by Impact Promotional Products!
You know that rage you feel in traffic when someone cuts you off? Don’t bottle it up, grab a sturdy vehicle and join us for the Demo Derby Saturday, July 28th at the Mesa County Fair!
How often are you encouraged to, “HIT EM’ AGAIN!”? This is the one event where you can ram a guy (or gal) as hard as you want, as much as you want, and NOT get a ticket!
This event features a free-for-all style derby held in a mud pit. The car & driver that are the last standing are the WINNER!
Some people run for the prize money, but most of our competitors are in it for the fun and just come for the crash.
You’ll see everything from trucks, station wagons, to a pink 76 Pontiac, dubbed Miss Pink Panther, for the first demolition derby of her life.
During my past Demo Derby experiences, I have personally driven my mom’s Wagon, a Subaru, and a tough truck. I’ll NEVER forget ‘Big Sexy’. A Big guy in a BIG station wagon, the kind you rolled around in the back of as a kid (if your as old as me). Big Sexy had a bullseye on me from the start and dang near disabled my vehicle on the first hit, but another car deflected the shot and I ended up on the opposite side of the arena from him for most of the event, but eventually everyone is down around us… he has a straight
and clear shot from one end of the arena into my once trusty stead, which is sure to land its death shot. As he revs his engine for effect, I try to break my stick (to show I have given up) but alas the darn thing won’t crack! This is going to hurt-I brace for impact as Big Sexy guns it across the mud, and all I can see is his smile as he CRUSHES my vehicle and my hopes of a first-time win.
By far the MOST fun you can have driving a car!
