Demolition Derby Kicks Off

By  | 

The two-day event, sponsored by Thomasville Toyota and the Exchange Club, starts at 7:00pm June 13th at the Exchange Club Fairgrounds.

This year's event features 36 entries ranging from local residents to nearby businesses.

Officials say drivers compete by deliberately ramming their cars into other competing vehicles and the last car operating wins cash prizes.

"Here's the thrill of it, stand by the fence and get dirt slung on you, people love it. It's a thing right at the front of the fence, as more cars crash, more stuff happens, the happier the crowd gets," said Frank Mazzola of Thomasville Toyota.

Tickets are eight dollars at the door and children under five, get in free.
