Tonasket Demo Derby returns Sunday, Aug. 31

Motorcycle racing added to event

TONASKET – The Tonasket Comancheros will be hosting this year’s Demolition Derby on Sunday, Aug. 31.

“It sounds like a good number of cars will be there,” said Comancheros spokesman Bud McSpadden. “There is still time and room for more; the war between the North and South is still going strong.”

Prospective participants should contact Don Johnson at 509-486-4118 for more information or to register.

This year’s event will also introduce flat track motorcycle racing for the first time, to take place between heats of the Demo. Registration begins at 10:30 a.m.

Racing classes will include: ages 8 and under; 9-11, 12-14, 15-17 and an open class. Top four will receive trophies and medals.

Parents must be present for sign-ins. More information is available from Dyllan Gage (509-557-9106) or Ruben Laurie (509-429-5846).

“The Rodeo Club has been very impressed with (Gage and Laurie) and their organization of this event,” McSpadden said. “We need more young adults to continue the long tradition of public service the Comancheros have been doing for more than 75 years.”
