11 colorful combine teams take to the ring at Carroll County, Maryland's 4-H Fair for the first combine demolition derby. Farmers, mechanics, and various other talented individuals spent weeks getting the old and tired, barely running combines into ship shape for the big event. Although it was difficult for the contestants to 'pretty up' their massive pieces of equipment only to smash them up in the derby, it is delightful to see a collaboration of local farmers and country folk coming together to support the 4-H organization and to have fun doing it. What emerges in the ring on that dusty evening will boggle your mind. Imagine The Tin Man and Haney the Holstein (to name a few) bumping, smashing, and crashing to the finish.
