Ron Campbell and Bafaro brothers' team wins two of three in revived Armstrong demolition derby

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.
