8 teams will battle to be the sole survivor at the end of the historic 75th Team Demolition Derby ever held inside the confines of The Dirt Oval at Route 66 Raceway!
Will we see another first-time winner this season? Mean Green Machine and Full Throttle sit tied atop the points with 3 events remaining. Junkyard Dogs and Orange Crush are within striking distance to make a leap to the front while Thunderstruck, Sting, Crazy8’s and Chicago Hitmen need to make a big impact in a hurry!

Figure-8 Racing, Watermelon eating contest and fireworks will make it another explosive Tournament of Destruction event! Join us LIVE to witness the wreckage of a pivotal night towards the 2016 Tournament of Destruction Championship.

4 Paw Sake Rescue was a huge success last month and we’ve invited them back along with more 4-legged friends eager to find new homes. FIVE dogs were adopted on race day! Thank you to those Team Demo fans who made the adoption commitment and everyone who took a few minutes to play and interact with the pups.

4 Paw Sake representatives will answer all your questions and have adoption paperwork ready to go. Come for the Demos and perhaps meet your new best friend!

Announcing the Round 3 Jr. Flagger!


Chloe from Manhattan is our newest Jr. Flagger! Her favorite team is Orange Crush and is seen here with #6 John Clemmons celebrating their victory last September.

The 2 previous Jr. Flaggers’ favorite teams are the 2 Tournament of Destruction event winners thus far: Mean Green Machine and Full Throttle. Maybe Chloe will waive Orange Crush to victory at Round 3!

Team Demo Throwback Photo of the Week


Tournament of Destruction Round 3 this Saturday is the 75th Team Demolition Derby event at Route 66 Raceway.

12. Yes, 12 Team Demo cars in 1 race! Never before and probably never again. It happened on July 19, 2003 in the Consolation Race. This, now defunct, race allowed teams that lost their first round race an opportunity to race again for extra cash and points. It was common to see 2 and even 3 teams go at it, but all 4 only happened on this night. Road Rage vs. Team Xtreme vs. Locomotives vs. Havoc left 12 mangled cars strewn across the track and resulted in a countdown victory for Locomotives.

It doesn’t matter if it’s your 1st, 20th or 50th Team Demo event; it’s an unpredictable night mayhem and excitement that you won’t forget. Join us LIVE @ The Dirt Oval to be part of history!
