Demolition Derby

This is the 5th Annual Goodguys Rod and Custom Association /Demolition Derby held at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds in Raleigh North Carolina. The demolition derby will be Saturday April 27th, 2019. The Pits open at 10:00am and close at 4:00pm, with the competition starting at 6:00pm. Classes include the following, a Full Size Metric Class (this class will run heats), a one and done "Gut and Go" mini car class, and a Mid-Size “6 cyl” class. Each derby will have a Mad Dog cash prize and trophy. There have been changes made to make this event even better than it has been in the past. All cars will be teched equally and fairly again this year. There are a few changes in the rules to make the build a little easier but to still give you the same stout build. So get to building, it is going to be a good, hard hitting show!
