Ozark Demolition Derby

Competitors drive Saturday, June 6, 2015, during the annual Ozark Demolition Derby at Parsons Stadium in Springdale.

As a car guy, this assignment was irresistible for me. Though I enjoyed watching the cars hit one another, the best part for me was looking at all of the modifications that had been made on the cars both to make them tougher and safer and to also keep them operational. I even lent a hand in the pits for a bit trying to get a carburetor adjusted before the competition started. Fun!
