Demo Derby thrills drivers and spectators alike

Audience members could only watch in disbelief last weekend as some of the state’s finest adrenaline-crazed drivers piloted trucks in a bull pen-like arena with a goal of ramming into one another until only one was left running. It all took place during a Town of Payson-hosted Demolition Derby held June 9 at the Payson Event Center. The derby was one of the highlights of the Third Annual Mountain High Games that also included a 5K run, ATV rodeo, bike race, Dutch oven cookoff, horseshoe and archery contests and sawdust games.
