Demolition Derby: The Definitive Guide to 2016 Demolition Derbies in Ohio

It's demolition derby season in Ohio. This comprehensive list of derbies has all the details you need to catch the demolition derby games you crave.


Summers are for county fairs, festivals and good ol' fashioned fun. No fair is truly complete without a demolition derby. It's when the finest old rust bucket cars in the land gather not to race, but to destroy one another. The demolition derby drivers are not aiming for speed, but rather for one another.

Preparing for and competing in a demolition derby is a noble way to end the life of a trusted car. From removing all the glass, to painting your numbers and emblazoning your car doors for safety, an Ohio demo derby is a liberating and satisfying gauntlet for all involved.

Perhaps car donation is more your speed

Now that you know where to head to see other people's cars get demolished, maybe you're thinking about what to do with your own aged vehicle. Car donation is an easy, non-violent alternative to sentencing your car to the demolition derby arena.

All you need is a clean title, and we accept donations of cars, trucks, boats, RVs — pretty much anything with a motor.

HERE ARE THREE SIMPLE WAYS TO GET STARTED:

  • Online: Just fill out our online form, and we'll contact you to schedule a convenient pickup time.
  • By phone: Call us at 800-862-6030 to start the donation process.
  • In person: You can drop off your car with a clean title at 5640 W. Broad St., Columbus, Ohio, 43228.

Car donation may not be as exciting or as cacophonously beautiful as the derby, but these vehicles help make Columbus better through our programs that help everyone from homeless veterans to young people in need. And that feeling is just smashing.
