Chances are sometime on TV or in person you’ve seen the spectacle of organized cars smashing together known as demolition derby.

But put the fair in an area where there’s still some agriculture going on, like Western Kenosha County, and unique evens like combine demolition derby spring up.

Combine demolition derby takes the huge machines that farmers use to harvest corn, grains and soybeans and pits them against each other in the metal bending world of demolition derby. The results are one of a kind. Last combine in running order wins.

The Kenosha County Fair, which runs Aug. 19 to 23 this year, has two nights of combine demolition derby — Wednesday and Thursday evening as part of the truck and tractor pull program starting at 6:30 p.m. There’s no extra admission for the combine demo derby, which takes place in the grandstand area of the Wilmot raceway right on the fairgrounds.
