ADDITION COMING TO DEMO DERBY
Coffeyville, Kan. (March 29, 2017) – The Inter-State Fair Demo Derby is going old school.
The demo derby, which will be Sat., August 12 at Walter Johnson Park in Coffeyville, will feature its inaugural “Old Timers Heat” at the demo derby.
It was the driver’s requests that has created the heat. For drivers who participated twenty years ago, the expense and time that goes into building a car for the demo derby was prohibitive.
When John Reeves, demo derby chairman, asked if the men would be willing to enter a heat with rules from the 1990s, they agreed
The Old Timers Heat will allow for vehicles without extra expense, Reeves said, “without the costs of slider drive shafts, distributor protectors, and built rear ends. Some adaptations on demo cars can run upwards of $2,000. With the old timers’ heat, the adaptations will be half of that cost.
Anyone who ran a car in 2003 and prior is eligible to run in the Old Timers’ Heat. More information can be found on the Inter-State Fair and Rodeo website at: https://fairandrodeo.com/wp-con
The demo derby will also include the other classes: pro mods, limited weld class and compacts.
