Appetite for Destruction Demolition Derby in Swift Current, July 21, 2018

Written by 

A large crowd attended the Appetite for Destruction demolition derby at the Living Sky Casino Speedway in Swift Current, July 21. This was the second year in a row that the event took place as a fundraiser for the Swift Current Stock Car Association, and the number of participating drivers increased from eight in 2017 to 19 this year. It resulted in even more entertainment for spectators, as there were four preliminary heats, as well as a consolation heat and the King of the Ring final with nine competing vehicles. Ryan Atkings of Zenon Park won the King of the Ring title and $1,500 prize money when his vehicle was the only one still moving at the end of the final round. Swift Current driver Ed Ewert finished second and received $800, and another Swift Current driver Candace Cutts placed third and received $500. Dustin Kennedy of Weyburn won the Hardest Hit award, Luke Howe of Swift Current received the Mad Dog award, and Swift Current's Brody Crowe received the award for best looking car in his Scooby Doo themed vehicle.
