The annual Madison Demolition Derby, sponsored by the Madison Area Business Association, is this Saturday at 7 pm at the Madison Businessmen’s Arena. Drivers will be participating in the classes of stock, gut ‘n go, and compact. Officer for the Madison Demolition Derby, James Johnston says drivers will be participating for some significant prize money.
Prize money will range from 50 dollars for fifth place to 12 hundred dollars for the champion in the stock class. Between 75 and 100 drivers are expected to participate this year. Johnston says the drivers will be coming from both Missouri and Illinois.
Car check-in for drivers will begin at 3 pm. Those interested should arrive before 5:30 pm in order to participate. Prior to the derby, kids will have a Power Wheels Derby. Johnston says this event is fun for both the kids and their parents.
