BONNERS FERRY — The Smash and Bash Demolition Derby, put on by Glass House Productions, LLC., came roaring back into town on Saturday, Sept. 7, packing the Boundary County Fairground grandstands once again, and thrilling the audience with the crashing of metal and clods of dirt flying through the air.

Between heats, the crowd was entertained as members of the audience were asked to come down to the arena and compete for cash prizes, such as the Grandpa Dance Off, won by Jeff Avery.

But the main event was the cars and the drivers, who did not disappoint this year. For the first time in years, a car was hit so hard that it ended up outside of the log perimeter, eliciting a collecting shout from the crowd.

At the end of the night, Ryan Schneider from Garwood, Idaho, took first place, followed by Justin Kirk in second, and Travis Jaeger in third place.

“It was awesome,” said Tia Avery. “It was a lot of fun.

“Best derby ever,” said her husband, Jeff Avery. “They did a really good job putting this one together. The side shows were really awesome — getting everybody engaged.”
