DEMO DERBIE COSTS INCREASE: Other rule changes for 2012 as well

March 28, 2012

COLUMBIA CITY — New rules and higher entry fees are ahead for the 2012 Whitley County 4-H Demolition Derbies. 4-H Clubs, Inc., approved a $50 entry fee for each car that enters the demolition derby scheduled July 15 and 18 at this year’s 4-H Fair. Last year the fee was $25. This fee includes one driver and one pit crew member.

There are rule changes organized by board members Kent Reese, Greg Rostochak and Tara VanHouten. A highlight of the rule changes include pits and inspection open at 3 p.m. on Sunday and a final inspection must be completed by 6 p.m. On Wednesday the pits open at 4 p.m. and final inspection needs to complete by 6:30 p.m.

There will be no welding on bumper supports and all cars must include a 4-point driver’s cage welded to the floor of the vehicle, not the frame, and must be 2” from the driver’s door.

“We’ll have a suggested plan attached to the rules,” said Reese. A complete listing of the rules and regulations can be picked up at the Purdue Extension Office.
