Demo Derby Close Up

A possible future story, but for now just some images from a few hours I spent following this driver around in the Kingston Fall Fair Demolition Derby.

KINGSTON, Ont. (19/09/10)-- Josh Lambert, of Tamworth, Ontario, gets help from his friends fixing up his car in between rounds in the Kingston Fall Fair Demolition Derby on Sunday. Lambert has been competing as a Demo Derby driver for about 9 years since he was 15 years old. He and his friends got into demo derby driving since a young age out of the boredom of living in a small town, and because "where else can you legally run into someone?" says Lambert jokingly.
