Eve of Destruction wreaks mayhem at the Gage County Fair

July 29, 2018

The annual Eve of Destruction event at the Gage County Fair brought some much anticipated mayhem to the Beatrice Speedway, Saturday night.

The event kicked off with a childrens’ demo derby, followed by a fiery rollover event. One car caught fire during the rollover portion, with firefighters quickly quelling the blaze. No one was injured.

The main portion of the show, a destructive trailer race, saw metal and debris flying all over the speedway as fitted up trucks rammed into each other, much to the delight of the hundreds packed into the stands and in the pit.

Entertainment at the fair wraps up on Sunday with IMCA Racing at 6 p.m.
