Demo Derby Time
Randy and I had pit passes (thanks, Roy, you're the best!), but I stayed up in the stands with our son T. He had never been to one before and wanted to see it. Didn't want to risk him being so close to the action.
Each round took about 10-15 minutes, then they had to bring in tractors to tow out the losers.
Just as the final round was about to begin, the sky opened up and just poured. I went running for cover and forced T to go with. He was not pleased. Being a 12-year old boy, the thought of sitting in the rain, watching cars beat each other to a pulp is his idea of a great time. Randy was under the stage, so he was dry. Muddy, from the cars and trucks tires spinning in the mud, but dry.
When the rain eased up a pinch, the kids and I went running for the truck and waited for Randy to get there. After downloading over 400 photos, I sent the best to the paper and now want to pass a few on to you.
