Hey guys got contacted by Iredell county fair. They want to have a derby and this is not a for sure thing at the moment. But they are talking a one night show this year on Aug 31st. Not sure of payout money yet but they usually give me at least 2500$ for payout. I'm trying to work with them and make something happen. Will keep this site and Facebook updated. But if this happens it will be just regular derby. with full size old iron and 80s mix,And compacts. With Cleveland county's rules to keep it simple. Like I said I will keep everyone updated as it happens.
