Tearing It Up
From the Series Dirt and Destruction Sports Zone
Have you ever seen a car crash? How about dozens of car crashes all at the same time? At demolition derbies, you’ll see drivers ram their cars into one another until only one car remains moving. Crowds roar and cheer as hoods and doors and other car parts fly through the air.

• What makes a great demolition derby vehicle.
• How drivers look for hits and avoid getting smashed by other cars.
• Who popularized the sport in the United States.
• Where the biggest derby took place.
