Derby smashes into Armstrong

The Armstrong Demolition Derby, which made a triumphant comeback in 2013 after a more-than-a-decade absence, begins at 11:30 a.m. Sunday

Metal-on-metal returns to Armstrong’s IPE Grounds Sunday.

The Armstrong Demolition Derby, which made a triumphant comeback in 2013 after a more-than-a-decade absence, begins at 11:30 a.m.

Gates open at 10 a.m. (general admission seating).

An overflow crowd has jammed every seat of all the IPE grandstands the past two years to catch glimpses of old-style cars and trucks plowing into each other.

Mini-vans were added for 2014 and return this year, along with the cars, trucks and the always-popular powder puff division.

Drivers from the region and from around B.C. will be competing for $9,000 in prize money, along with trophies.

The event is expected to run throughout the afternoon.

Food vendors will be on-site.

Tickets will be available at the gate (cash only, no debit) and are $15 for adults, $10 for students and seniors. Kids under 10 get in free (maximum two per adult).
