Beautify Your Junker for the Demo Derby!
When preparing your car for this year’s derby, you may want to pay special attention
to the paint job. The best paint job at the derby will win fancy ribbons to
commemorate the artwork! You have a chance to win trophies and prize money
if you are successful, mechanically, but you also have a “second chance” to
win something if your car has the most interesting, creative and fun paint job.
Cars will be judged as they enter the first heat to show them off before the mud,
scratches, dings, and dents take over. Please keep all design work appropriate to
a family fair.
