ABOUT US

Founded in 1998, Smash It Demolition Derby started when the Clark brothers bought out Paulus Demo Derbies. Our mission is to treat all drivers with the respect that they deserve all while making sure that all cars are inspected the same and are to the rules. We also want the fans in attendance to be entertained by the derby as much as possible.

Smash It began with 8 county fair derbies and over the next few years grew to 24 derbies. In 2009, we decided to promote a national event named the Bash for Cash. The derby consisted of 4 classes and a purse of $30,000.00 and it was a success, so we decided to make the show an annual event.

In 2012, Smash it bought out Back to Back promotions that added another 25 shows to our schedule. That purchase allowed us to take over the class named Turn Back the Clock. We decided to take the Turn Back the Clock class and add it to our Bash for Cash derby. After doing this we expanded the show to 2 days. In 2016, we decided to pay $10,000 to win the compact division also and that took the event to a mammoth 3 day derby . The event outgrew its initial home in Bellefontaine, Ohio and moved to Washington Courthouse then outgrew that venue within three years. Bash for Cash is now held at the Ross County Fairgrounds and is the largest outdoor demolition derby in the United States with over 400 cars annually and with a payout of over $100,000.

In 2016, Smash It bought national events Blizzard Bash and Capital City Carnage in Topeka, Kansas from Ultimate Derby. Blizzard Bash is the largest indoor demolition derby in the United States and is held in November at the Stormont Vail Event Center in Topeka, KS. Blizzard Bash is a 4 man team derby with a few single classes. The National Team Bracket consists of 16 teams with the winning team getting paid $40,000. There is also a Qualifying Team Bracket in which the top 2 teams earning their way to the National Bracket. The Compact Team and Limited Weld Brackets are also feature events at Blizzard Bash. All in all, there are over 300 drivers with a payout of $135,000. Capital City Carnage is also held at the Stormont Vail Event Center. This derby is in March. There are usually 250 to 300 drivers participating in this derby but it is different than Blizzard Bash because it is not a team show and has a total payout of over $60,000.

Smash It’s summer season includes more than 40+ county fairs in Ohio. Often through the fair season, Smash It will have 2 and 3 derbies going on, dividing their talented staff among the shows to ensure fairness.
