What is a Demolition Derby
A demolition derby is a competition with cars where cars are driven into each other until only one is left standing. The competition typically uses older cars and there are usually five or more drivers. Demolition derbies originated in the United States but have spread to other Western countries as well. The competition typically takes place on a dirt track that can be very muddy. The mud slows down the cars and makes it more difficult for them to ram into one another.

History of the Demolition Derby
Demolition derbies started gaining popularity in the 1950s and became a standard event at fairs and festivals. In the 1970s, the sport’s popularity was at an all-time high and events were commonly held in large arenas and broadcast on television.
In today’s time, the derby has its subculture and tends to be popular in certain areas across the world. A demolition derby event can still draw in a huge crowd ready to see some action.
