That is a demolition derby! Cars crashing into eachother...my DAUGHTER was soo into that! What happened to her wanting to play with barbies, or something....no she'll play with Jeffery's matchbox cars, and be more interested in a demolition derby than her older brother!
We went to the derby last night after a rough day, I'm not going to get into the details of that. Lots of drama, and I lost a lot of years off my life with worry. I'm just happy it's over. So instead of going home, where I could sit and think about the horror that happened durring the day, we went to the demo derby to watch Jeff's coworker/friend in it.
This is Roger's car, 3X...Jeff helped him prepare this car for the derby, Jeff even made the fin on the roof...it has "XXX" sawed out of the middle of it (can't see it very well in the picture)
Just for entertainment, here are some more pics of the derby...if you have never heard of a derby, it's where there are different "heats" in each heat all the cars smash up eachother until only 3 cars are still able to move. The 3 cars from each "heat" go to the final round and only 1 car comes out of that one and thats the winner. We didn't stick around for the final round, we left after Roger was out. We saw a couple cars catch fire, in the pictures you can see firemen/women on each side of the ring, they all had fire extiguishers and all kinds of gear...its actually watched very closely by officals....you will notice little pink flags on the roof of the cars, when a car is unable to move, engine stopped working or whatever, they take that flag off and then the other cars still going aren't allowed to purposely hit the cars without flags, I saw one or 2 cars get disqualified for hitting a car without a flag. Poor Roger, he had to take his flag down because he got STUCK on another car and couldnt get off of it, after a certain amount of time of not moving, and not making contact with another car (crashing them) you have to take your flag down. Yea, I liked it more than I thought I would...I've always heard of derbys, but never went to one.
I'll have to add more later, Blogger won't let me upload pics for some reason right now.
