Fair organizers are excited to announce the prize money for the Demolition Derby has doubled to more than $20,000.

"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 stars of the show."

Back in 2021 the total prize money was increased from $8,900 in 2019 to $20,650 for the 2021 Derby.

The biggest check will go to the winner of the large car Demolition Derby. In 2019, the winner received $1,500. With the increased payout, that prize in 2021 was $4,000. Prize money was increased across all categories. For payouts see below.

The Demolition Derby is sponsored by Meyers Auto Tech, Tire Factory Pasco/Richland, Packaging Corporation of America, and U-Pull-It Auto Parts. The event is part of the CrashMania Demolition Derby series.
