Drivers will be smashing and crashing and some will be cashing during the Northwest Washington Fairs 2019 action-packed Demo Derby. The Aug. 12 event is presented by Manna Insurance Group to begin the Bank of the Pacific Grandstand Entertainment Series at the Fair in Lynden.
Approximately 70-80 entries are expected to compete for the largest demolition derby prize pool on the West Coast, according to Mike Scholten, president of the Whatcom Demo Derby Club. Anyone interested in entering should visit www.wddclub.com.
Tickets for the afternoon and evening demo derby shows go on sale to the public Thursday, May 2 — $10 for the 12:30 p.m. show and $20 for the 7 p.m. show, which usually sells out before the event. The grandstand seats dont include gate admission for the fair, which is required. VIP tickets for only the evening show are $98 per person, available in sets of two ($196 per pair).
