Revelstoke was well represented at the revived Armstrong Demolition Derby over the weekend, earning two first-place finishes out of three events.
Teammates Ron Campbell (driver), Steve Bafaro (co-pilot) and Franco Bafaro entered a 1981 Chevrolet half-ton into the competition.
They were the last truck moving in the first heat, finished second in their second heat and won their third heat, taking home $900 in prize money.
The Armstrong Demolition Derby returned after a nearly 15-year hiatus, drawing a capacity crowd.
“It was awesome; lots of people,” Campbell told the Times Review. “It’s an adrenaline rush, it’s fun. You get to pull trucks apart.”
Campbell, a mechanic at Downie Timber, thanked his team’s sponsors. They are Grizzly Auto, A&W Revelstoke and Lordco Revelstoke.
