Jaycees 51st Annual Demo Derby Wows Audience With Smashing Good Time

Saturday, June 8 the Dillon Jaycees hosted the 51st annual demolition derby at the Beaverhead County Fairgrounds.

This year's derby had three main matches, along with a grudge match, and the title match. With full size vehicles smashing into one another hoping to be one of the final three running at the end of the match.

The popular UTV barrel race returned again this year providing the crowd with thrills and spills as some participant's hit the corners a little too hard rolling over their UTV.

Another crowd favorite, the Herby Derby saw compact cars racing around the arena smashing into one another. The cars could take a lot of hits making one appreciate the durability of these cars.
