Oh my so many busses being wrecked. But looks like fun for those who can afford it.

they do these in Ohio all the time... there are several each year... they typically raise money for a charity so a lot of the busses are sponsored.. they buy a lot of rusty michigan and PA busses cheap.. its a great source of bus parts though.. as a lot of guys drive their busses to the derby town and then strip them there.. some derbies require the windows come out.. a lot of busses still have good engines after the derby believe it or not.. the first thing to go usually is the air-brakes compressor and transmission lines which pretty quickly the bus just stops.. even though the radiators get damaged they dont often over-heat as they are idling more than being hammered... the last ones to be in the derby usually have the most damaged engines and are usually hydraulic brakes... occasionally you;ll see a rather good bus go into one of these..

ive watched a few.. they are a hoot and the crowd really gets into it..
