1. Go to the Deseret Peak Demolition Derby in Tooele tomorrow. (Fireworks! Cash! Prizes!) Starts at 5:00, tickets are $5.00. They have beer there, too, but if you’re drinking it you can’t sit in the family section. I highly recommend this one.
2. Hell, if you can go to the first demolition derby of the season, why would you want do anything else?
3. Watch out for Godzilla:
FYI, the first derby (at least in this general area) of the season was in Logan on May 12. They do three races a year and are well worth the drive from Salt Lake. Make no mistake, Cache County Search & Rescue puts on a class event. http://www.cachedemoderby.com
Tooele’s derby, on the other hand, has always seemed a tad pretentious, at least to my taste. Same with Ogden, and Kamas too, which is generally considered the holy grail of Derbydom. Maybe that’s why I always come away unimpressed- it’s really doesn’t derserve all the hype.
