One day my friend Erin came over for a visit and I don't remember how it got brought up, but she asked me if I had ever been to a Demolition Derby. The answer to that was a big fat no. I don't think I could have even told you what happened at a Demolition Derby. I mean I knew it had something to do with cars. Is that sad? Anyway... at that moment Allison and I decided it would be fun to try out once. We heard from people it was pretty fun. Maybe we would make to one next year.
Well, Erin text me last week and asked me if I wanted two tickets to the Derby in Spanish Fork on Saturday. Her sister ended up not being able to go and Erin couldn't go either. So Allison and I took the tickets and we went on Saturday.
I wasn't really sure what to expect. I had never seen so many white trash people in my life. I had as much fun people watching as I did watching the cars. Allison and I had some good laughs at the event taking it all in.
We had fun and enjoyed watching the cars crash and some catching on fire.... I don't know if I would make it a regular thing, but it was fun to experience. The only complaint we had besides the hard benches and many bugs was that it took forever in-between events. I mean... each car had it's own tow truck... it all took a while. By the end you start to get a little impatient and the last two events were definitely the best.
I'm glad we went. We had a good time and I'm always trying to embrace Utah life and I am always wanting to try new things and go to new events in Utah. So much to do here. Especially in the summer. Love it. Thanks Erin for the tickets!
