I've heard through the grape vine that Spartan is interested in possibly expanding these events, maybe doing a couple more per year. Obviously I'm all for that and will be there as long as I have a running vehicle.

A few ideas...

1. Awards. We don't need trophies or expensive awards, recognition is usually enough, but I think it would be cool to have fans vote on their favorite driver, favorite decorated car, favorite decorated trailer, etc. Some demolition derbies have what's called the "Mad Dog Award", which goes to the gutsiest driver, regardless of their finishing position... maybe we could do something like that, too.

2. Require trailer cargo. The fans want to see carnage, we need to give it to them. Even if it's as simple as card board boxes, we should all be required to have SOMETHING on our trailer. Obviously nothing sharp or dangerous but running bare trailers is kind of boring. Myself and some of the other drivers were talking and we're willing to come back on the following day to help clean up, if that's what it takes.

3. More events. Push races, chain races, relay races...

Relay races are where two cars are paired up on the oval track. One car races around and they have to "tag" their partner by bumping them, then their partner races around the track and tags them back. These are pretty simple and I think they would be a lot of fun to watch.

Those are just a few ideas. I am 100% all for making fun nights even bigger than they already are and I will help in any way that I can.

How about a flagpole race with skid plates?
