More Information


An all new event at the OC Fair, the purpose of the game is to score a goal. From a spectator point of view the desire is to see as many thrills, spills, smashes and wipe-outs as possible.

This game of auto-soccer quickly turns into some car-crushing madness. What a great twist on the classic demolition derby and race track events. This is an entirely new and exciting version of the traditional demolition derby contests! Bring the whole family and cheer for your favorite team.
