Fan favorite ‘Destruction Derby’ returns to Nevada County Fair

Submitted to The Union

It’s back – the Destruction Derby at the Nevada County Fair.

The popular derby, held on Sunday of the Nevada County Fair, will be locally produced by five of Nevada County’s Rotary Clubs — The Rotary Club of Nevada City, Rotary Club of Nevada County South, 49er Breakfast Rotary of Nevada City, Penn Valley Rotary, and Rotary Club of Grass Valley.

This year’s Destruction Derby is sure to be a crowd favorite, as drivers put their cars to the ultimate test and crash, smash, and ram other vehicles while trying to keep their own vehicle running! That’s demolition at its best.

“The Nevada County Fairgrounds is extremely pleased that the Rotarians, who are leaders in our community, are taking on the production of the Destruction Derby at the fair,” said Sandy Woods, CEO of the Nevada County Fairgrounds. “This event will be a truly locally produced event, and we are excited to be able to offer this entertainment to our community.”

The Destruction Derby will take stage 7 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 10, at the Nevada County Fair. Tickets are $15 for adults and $8 for kids 12 and under.

In addition to the Destruction Derby, this year’s Fair has a full line up in the arena, including the Flying U Extreme Rodeo (produced by Cotton Rosser and Flying U Rodeo) on Wednesday and Thursday night, and Tuff Trucks and Monster Trucks (produced by Scott Miller Paving, Inc.) on Friday and Saturday night.
