Is It Demo Derby Season Yet?
The derby from Saturday night was a knock down, drag out affair. Full track shots and carnage were typical. Lance Cline from nearby Paris won both the full size and truck classes. 18 full size cars competed in 3 qualifying heats and 6 trucks plus 14 compacts all competed in one shot features. 1st place in the full size class paid a $1000 and 2nd payed $600. I think compacts might have payed a $1000 as well but I can't confirm that.

Lance Cline in a sedagon Olds. His brother Chad drove the same car to a W at Paris earlier this year. Believe it's run #4 for this one, earning win #2 at Marshall.
Sean Robison in a shocker New Yorker - he would place 2nd.
Sean trashing a roundback.
Dean Shorter in a '93 Mercury is in the middle of a sandwhich double shot from Cline and Robison. Dean would end up 3rd place and $300. The Merc was fresh before the derby.
Lance's sedan Olds ready for run #5.
The remnants of Dean's '93 Mercury.
This roundback was pulled out the weeds 3 days before the derby. It already had 10 runs on and was prepped in limited time. As the car was being pulled off the track, the entire rear end gave way.

|The last picture is great- that's what demolition derby is all about- run it til the wheels (and axle!) fall off!|
