While the Fairest of the Fair Pageant was underway on the first night of the Macon County Fair, things were getting bumping at the Blankenship Arena. The Derby started out with a Power wheels show. Youngsters were able to drive their power wheels and not have to watch out for others.
While some of the derby cars were getting repairs between heats, the crowd was entertained with a lawn mower derby. Lawnmowers were driven into fellow mower riders and a few were tipped over.
It always proved to be a rewarding night for derby supporters. There was a $1,100 drawing, one person received $100 and five were drawn for $200.
First Heat; Tyler East, Joseph East, and Joey Green.
Second Heat; Justin Bandy, Jason Bandy, and Billy Jackson.
Top Overall; Tyler East, Jason Bandy, and Joseph East.
