Nothing seems to define a county fair and attract a grandstand audience more than the demolition derby. There's just something primal about being encouraged to drive your car in to that of another at a relatively high rate of speed. It's definitely not high-brow entertainment like a Broadway play or a night at the opera but nothing beats the smell of smoke and mud and the sound of crashing metal.
