School Bus Demolition Derby starts at 7:00pm
As the green flag signals the start, the spontaneous roar of missing, un-mufflered, dilapidated automobiles, resembling the freeway rush hour and herds of stampeding elephants. The "junker's" radiators start gushing steam geysers, blown tires belch bits of burning, stinking rubber and fenders buckle under the constant banging of bumper-to-bumper collisions. Drivers circle in a frenzy and rip at hapless victims less able to maneuver.
Demolition Derby Championships start at 7:00pm
In the rush, cars overturn, some completely on their roofs. As the merciless competition dwindles, the tactics become more dramatic. The winners of these contests possess the attributes of a true showman, a bravado, recklessness, nonchalance and insanity.

With the release of Jason Aldean’s hit “1994” earlier this year that name-checked many of Joe Diffie’s twelve Number One hits, the legendary singer found himself squarely back in the hearts and minds of country fans. The multi-platinum-selling artist who dominated the charts during a hot streak in the ‘90’s may have been absent from the radio charts for the past few years, but Joe-Joe-Joe Diffie has never slowed down – writing, touring and recording a myriad of projects including his critically acclaimed 2010 bluegrass album “Homecoming,” and his recent “Roots And Boots” acoustic tour and collaborative CD “All In The Same Boat,” with fellow hitmakers Sammy Kershaw and Aaron Tippin. And now he’s back at it again, riding shotgun with hick-hop sensations the Jawga Boyz on a brand new single, “Girl Ridin’ Shotgun,” which was recently released to country radio.
