Combine Demolition Not For City Folk

LIND, Wash. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – It takes a good ol’ country boy to handle a combine.

The 20th Annual Combine Demolition Derby is chargin’ into Lind, Washington, on June 14, and features 18,000-pound farming tractors clashing in a battle royale of destruction.

According to event coordinator Mike Doyle, city folk should stick to riding cabs instead of combines.

He explains, “City folk can come up with their own combine, but they probably won’t stand a chance against a farm kid. They know all the ins and outs.”

Doyle says seasoned riders take out their opponents’ rear axle or pop their front tire, while some illegally soup up their tractors to make them crushing machines.

With such a metal mashing massacre, injuries are to be expected.

Doyle says, “You get a few bumps and bruises, and your butt goes a little numb. The best cure for that is to hit the beer garden so the rest of you goes numb too!”
