The long-awaited demolition derby, originally scheduled for the first night of the Metcalfe County fair, was held on July 24th.

A good size crowd came out despite the sweltering heat to see the 15 entrants beat and bang their way to the last car still moving.

Brandon Bell, on a last minute notice, did a great job announcing for the evening and the Barren-Metcalfe County Ambulance Service was on hand to take care of a couple of spectators who needed help.

The first battle belonged to the future drivers in their battery-powered vehicles. Five children entered and each did a great job and each received a prize for their efforts.

The top four of the first and second heats went on to the final battle with the top three remaining drivers winning.

The first-place winner of $1,000 was Josh Parrish, the second-place winner of $500 was Katie Clemmons, and the third-place $250 went to Colby Romines.
