Pretty sure they're mannequins and not real people.

Yeah, it was dummies.

But there is thing called "train races". Three cars chained together, the front one has steering and motor but no brakes. The middle car has fixed steering, no driver, just dead weight. The tail car has a driver, and brakes.

Probably the perfect thing to do for a married couples night out.

Demolition Derby was a Saturday night TV event in our house when I was a kid. Even then I thought "who are these people that can afford to smash up a car?".

Reminds me of an old John Hiatt song:

Oh it breaks my heart to see those stars
Smashing a perfectly good good guitar
I don't know who they think they are
Smashing a perfectly good guitar..

Sorry Pete! ..but he has a point

the school bus races are a hoot too!

I would just put my red lights on and nobody could pass me.

I believe we all make mistakes but I will not validate your poor choices and/or perversions and subsidize the results your actions.

That was hilarious! As a culture we sure know how to tear things up. We have combine demolition derbies here in Ohio. I havenít been to a demo derby in years. A guy trashed a really nice 55 Oldsmobile at that one. I think the purse was $500 to win. I would have given him ten times that for the car.

Some of those combine demolition derbies look pretty funny.

I think I've heard of it, never seen what it is like until now.
