Having a Smashing and Crashing Good Time


Durban came to life on Saturday Aug. 10 as cars roared their engines, crowds from throughout the Valley cheered and metal crushed against each other as the annual Durban Demo Derby took over the community.
A total of 11 cars entered the event, which almost didn’t happen due to poor participation.
But, the approximately 300 people in the bleachers proved that the event is still very much anticipated and the hard work of many is appreciated.
In the first heat Clayton Troxler claimed the victory while Curtis Popoff dominated the second heat. In the third, Nathan Ribalkin drove away victorious while Clint Burtnack and Wyatt Bartel were awarded the consolation winner title and advanced to the finals.
When all was said and done, Ribalkin drove away $2,000 richer after he was named the grand challenger winner.
Second place and the $1,000 prize went to Clayton Troxler with Burtnack taking away third place with $500.
Dwight Popoff walked away with $500 for Maddog and received another $200 for the prize of the Best Dressed racer.
It was an afternoon of excitement that renewed a love for competition for those young and old as many families gathered together for the action.
