The theme of a Destruction Derby is “Destroy or be Destroyed” and the crash ’em / smash ’em event slated for the Grandstands arena on Sunday will be no different. Drivers do their best while driving in reverse, in a bed of mud, to smash the other cars to smithereens. The audience cheers as mud flies, wheels spin in the gooey mess, and one car after another are annihilated or the overworked and overheated engines give up in a smoky haze.
Between heats, teams madly pull out major dents that might keep a wheel from turning, weld broken parts, and tinker with barely running engines in order to make it back out to the next heat. The last car running in each heat goes on to the final championship event.
Put on by Harrah's Northern California, the Destruction Derby is a major fund-raiser for the club who supports community services such as the Interfaith Food Bank. If you plan to attend the Amador County Fair Destruction Derby, get your tickets in advance as the lines form early for this sell-out event. Tickets may be purchased in advance.
