The event featured separate competitions for 4-cylinder, 6-cylinder and 8-cylinder engines, as well as a minivan round and a pick-up truck round. Here, sports reporter Andy Kirkaldy gives a rundown of the popular event. </p> <h4 class="meta2"> <a href="/?q=node/8902">full story</a></h4> <p><a href="http://addisonindependent.com/201108slideshow-demolition-derby" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Feature Article Multimedia Addison County Fair and Field Days demolition derby Field Days 2011 Mon, 15 Aug 2011 21:12:22 +0000 Ian Trombulak 8902 at http://addisonindependent.com Veterans deliver at demo derby http://addisonindependent.com/201108veterans-deliver-demo-derby <div class="image-attach-teaser image-attach-node-8900" style="width: 152px;"><a href="/201108veterans-deliver-demo-derby"><img src="http://addisonindependent.com/files/images/demo6575.thumbnail.jpg" alt="demo6575.jpg" title="demo6575.jpg" class="image image-thumbnail " width="152" height="100" /></a></div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-cutline"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> RICHARD PICKLE OF the Addison Fire Department gets rear ended during last Thursday&#039;s demolition derby.
