Six Cars and a Mud Pit

the end

So as I mentioned yesterday, there was a little old thing called a demolition derby at the fair. We had never been to one before and we thought to would be fun to actually see one in person. As an added bonus it was part of the fair so we wouldn't have to shell out any more money.

We went with high hopes and we were not disappointed.

At first I was surprised at how small the area for the cars was. Somehow I envisioned something far larger, but after the first heat I understood that the small size resulted in far more intensive action. It was fun watching the big cars slew about in the mud, shooting up rooster tails of red clay. The crowd cheered with every impact. And in the end it all came down to two smoking wrecks.
