The 2016 Claiborne County Fair Demolition Derby pulled in a large crowd as usual and the three features were as entertaining as fans would ever want.

The two main classes of vehicles included stock and modified. As an added surprise there were enough four cylinder cars on site to have their derby. The four cylinder derby was not advertised at all but the fair decided if enough made the trip that they would include them and it was a great feature as well as the bigger, V-8 cars.

During the four cylinder derby, Ryan Crosby outlasted Travis Crosby and Joe Ray to capture first place.

During the street derby, Benji Rosson put on a show for the fans as he won the Mad Dog Trophy for being the most aggressive driver plus finished first in his feature. Tyler Farrow was second and C.J. Nelson finished third.

The finale of the night was the modified cars and when they collided it sounded like a train wreck. Taylor Farrow got the win and Matt Owens finished second. Third place went to Travis Farrow.

During each of these feature events, there were cars on their sides, steaming, smoking and even an electrical fire. The collisions amazed the fans and brought out many cheers.

The Claiborne County Fair Association would like to thank all the sponsors, participants and volunteers that helped make the derby another success.
