Carmageddon 2018 the Demolition Derby

It’ll be an exhilarating afternoon of jarring motorsports action in Berlin when JM Motorsport Productions invades the Berlin Lions Agricultural Fair with their famous “World’s Largest Demolition Derby.”

The show features five heats worth of exciting Demolition Derby action. The first three are qualifying events with the final two cars running receiving $100, a trophy and a spot in the championship event. The fourth heat is open to all non-winners of the first three, with two cars from there receiving $50 and moving on to the championship.

That championship event features the eight qualifying cars, with the last car running receiving $900 and a championship trophy. Second place receives $200 and a trophy.

Interested drivers from both near and far are always welcome to participate and be part of the action. For information on how you can be a part of the Demolition Derby, call JM Motorsport Productions at (716) 980-6533 or visit their website.
