Fair organizers are excited to announce the prize money for the Demolition Derby has doubled to more than $20,000.
Whether drivers are racing or smashing their cars at the event, it takes a significant investment of time and money to build out a car for the Demolition Derby held each August as the kick-off to the Benton Franklin Fair & Rodeo.
"We want to acknowledge the time and effort drivers put in to make the event a success" said Duane Howard, President of the Benton Franklin Fair Board. "The Demo Derby is a fan favorite and sells out every year. The drivers and their cars are the starts of the show."
People just can't get enough of the action at the Demo Derby. This could be the most popular event of the whole week. Watch these crazy racers compete for speed and smash up each other's cars for the grand finale.
