Demolition Derby a Smash in Antigo Submitted: 05/19/2013
Antigo - This weekend motor sports fans were cheering on their favorites at a Demolition Derby in Antigo. It's basically bumper cars, on steroids. Over 50 drivers from across the country competed at the Langlade County Fairgrounds. The goal, is to deliberately ram their cars into all the others. The drivers go both forward and in reverse trying to make contact. After all the smashing and crashing the last car that still can operate, is the winner. Another group that benefited from the event was the Elcho Fire Department. Money raised from concession sales will go toward buying new equipment for the firefighters. After the dust settled, the derby was a huge success.
