Pile'N Up in Paris Demolition Derby Results
By Robin Gregg
From one second to the next, you just never know what will happen at a Demolition Derby and “Pile’N Up in Paris” was definitely a great theme to have for a huge crowd of roughly 1000 watch 50 demolition derby cars take on the muddy track for the first time at Paris Fairgrounds since 1991.
Steven Adams and his wife Alisha along with a great crew to assist them organized a derby that all enjoyed!
The crew appreciated everyone that come out and supported their event Saturday night, May 11, 2019. They had a great turn out!
“We wouldn’t have been able to do it without all of our volunteers, driver, riders, and fans!! Thank you to the community for supporting this event and us leading up to and during the event,” said Steven and Alisha.
There were three classes: Stock Big Car; Compacts; and Gut’n Go.
The results for the Stock Big Car were: First Place Blake Hultz #61; Second Place Bradly Hamlin #4; and Third Place Tommy Johns #8J.
The results for the Compacts were: First Place Brady Smith #69; Second Place Phyllis Garnett #02g; and Third Place Steven Lawrence #37L;
The results for Gut’n Go were: First Place Johnton Pertowski; Second Place Trey Hammond; and Third Place Chris Argar.
The Mad Dog Award went to Trey Hammond.
“We met some of our goals but we know that there are areas that need improvement. We are still discussing having this event yearly,” said Alisha.
The Monroe County Sheriff’s Department, Paris Rural Fire Protection District, and the Monroe County Ambulance District was at the event.
