Well, a demolition derby essentially allows you to do just that. A demolition derby is an automotive event that requires the participants to ram their vehicle into the other competitors. The last car that remains operational after the grueling event is crowned the champ.

Demolition derby events can be found throughout the country in various areas. They are typically held at carnivals and county fairs on dirt fields. The enthusiastic onlookers scream with excitement every time the cars pound into each other. You do not have to be a professional driver to enter a demolition derby, but you will likely have to sign a liability waiver to participate.

A demolition derby is not exactly the safest motor-sport in the world. Anytime that another vehicle crashes into your ride, you are put at risk of succumbing to an injury. To enhance the safety, all of the windows are taken out of each vehicle. Although most areas of the car are prone to being hit, it is against the rules to crash into the driver’s-side door. The door is usually painted a different color to warn the other competitors to avoid contact.

How Come There’s A Clay Track? http://www.winstonspeedway.net/2013/05/15/how-come-theres-a-clay-track/ http://www.winstonspeedway.net/2013/05/15/how-come-theres-a-clay-track/#comments Wed, 15 May 2013 00:00:00 +0000 admin http://www.winstonspeedway.net/?p=5 Winston Speedway is renowned for its excellent clay track. Compared to a traditional asphalt track, there are quite a few differences. A dirt race track uses the assistance of water to keep the clay smoothly packed down. Before each race, workers spray the track with water to ensure that the dirt sticks together properly. The condition of the clay track can change several times during the course of a race. Although the track starts off the day being smooth, the rigors of the race leads to a track that is rugged and undefined. A sudden downpour of rain can potentially cause the race to be postponed until the track dries out enough.

Asphalt is known to severely decrease the life span of tires. On the other hand, a clay track is a lot less harsh on the car’s tires. It is not uncommon for a racer to only use a few sets of tires during the entire race season. Due to the potential for debris to eject up from the dirt, the race cars often have shields to protect the windshields.

Although clay tracks differ from their asphalt counterparts, the level of competitiveness is second to none. In hopes of gaining the checkered flag, drivers must use their skill and experience to maneuver around the dirt-laden track.
