Sacramento, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/08/2014 -- Derby cars are going full throttle at the Sacramento County Fair at Cal Expo on May 23, 2014. Gates open at 7 p.m. and the crashing, smashing and the roar of engines start at 7:30 p.m.
This unique American form of entertainment is classic fun for everyone. Young and old alike join in the screaming and howling for their favorite drivers who are competing for the winning portion of the $5,150 purse. Drivers go metal to metal during the first three heats, then revive their cars and go back for the consolation heat. Those that do the most damage advance to the main event where winners will receive the following: first place $1,200, second $600, third $350, fourth $200, and fifth is $100.
“The Metal Mania Demolition Derby is one of the most popular events at the Fair”, says Pamela Fyock, CEO of the Sacramento County Fair. “This event WILL sell out early, so make sure you get your pre-fair discounted tickets at sacfair.com today,” she adds.
