Once again WGAR has a car, actually a Ford Windstar mini-van, entered in the Demolition Derby at the Cuyahoga County Fair.
After two straight, consecutive 2nd place finishes in a row, we are in this to win this. Like my man Ricky Bobby’s says, “If You Ain’t First, You’re Last!” C’mon now!
We’re already off to a great start. Our driver this year is the 2011 and 2012 CCFDD Champion, Ashley "Smashley" Saponari. Ashley qualified for Sunday night’s championship heat back on Monday night when she crashed what we affectionately refer to as, "The ‘Star", in reverse of course, into the radiator of her arch rival’s 1996 Chevy Lumina. “It doesn’t look it,” Ms. Saponari noted after the heat, “but these mini vans can take a pounding and keep on going. There's nothing mini about them. They're very heavy and well built. That Lumina didn’t know what hit it!”
If Ashely wins Sunday night, it’ll be her third victory in four years at the Fair.
Come cheer on Ashley Sunday night at 7 when she crashes the Rich’s Towing, WGAR Demolition Derby Car/Mini Van to victory!
