Totally agree! Being a derby guy myself , I'm glad we don't do this here. Its a shame to read about the GTs that get wrecked on some derby forums. But then again I'm sure some people don't like to see me wreck the stuff I do. Never heard anybody complain about wreckin a 1985 Chev Celebrity though!
That looks like fun!! That would be a great way to dispose of the modern day flimsy lawn mowers, and have a load of fun doing it! Thanks for sharing!

You know someone is going to look at a pressed tin tractor, then see a solid frame tractor and see the advantage. Then everyone will be hunting up old solid frame tractors to "get an advantage" in the derby.
Thats too bad that they do stuff like that.Then again as long as its the modern day pressed frame type then its not so bad.Lets hope that like the older collectable cars that the older collectable GTS will be saved for restoring etc:. Larry

Even the "Kabota" was actually a POS that was built by a bunch of guys at the "Kabota" dealer....The hood was just for advertizement.
I did see 1 actual garden tractor....a John Deere that that had a horizontal engine.....I thought that was a shame to destroy that one.

Some of the tractors hit each other head on and it was such a solid hit that both drivers would bounce up out of their seats!
I bet there was some sore people this morning.

By the way some of these dudes are just looking around
Those guys tractors have "died" and are just waiting until the end of the heat to be towed off the track.
Some of the guys would get off their tractor (when eliminated) and wait outside the track.

This was the winner, with a Gal driver no less.
I guess this can be added to the "you know when you are addicted list" when the photo shows more of the tractor than the gal driver.
