my first demolition derby... [Aug. 5th, 2006|12:09 am]

Wow, that was cool. I met up with Sister, we got good seats (she's been before so knew to sit far enough back to avoid flying mud and on the side that shades first). There were several "heats", I think 3 that the top 3 or 4 went to the final, a consolation round where anyone eliminated in the first 3 heats that could restart their car got to go again and the top maybe 2 or 3 got into the final, a compact round that is just fun to watch, then the final. Car 22 (black station wagon and last years champion) was a bit too agressive hitting the driver's side doors, a no-no by the rules from what I understand, but he got taken out by a car running on 3 tires. So it was a great time, I used sunblock and have no burn, and I'm tired.

Neighbor kid got knocked out pretty early, a hit took out his steering column. I'll have to see how my pics turned out.

Whee! Demo derbies are the very best.
