Having an Idea and Making It Work

Last Saturday night at New Smyrna Speedway, after all
the feature races and big l00 lap Late Model race was
over, race fans were entertained by a different form of
racing. In the cool, brisk night air, the second 4 cylinder
demo derby was held under the watchful eye of its
originator - Chuck "Junkyard Dog" Rush.

Now Junkyard Dog has been in alot of demo derbys
including the two that were televised from Orlando
SpeedWorld on TNN a few years back. We have
seen Junkyard in demo derbys, school bus races,
camper trailer races, boat trailer races even a 4
cylinder bomber mini-stock at Ocala Speedway but
these days he has taken on a new face - that of
CEO for his own 4 cylinder demo derby races.

Junkyard added a touch of the WCW world and
added music and girls to his introduction of the
cars and drivers. With different colored smoke
coming up and off the track in mysterious ways,
the demo cars are introduced one by one thru
colors of the rainbow until all the cars are out
of the pits and on the track ready to rumble.

Junkyard has set rules for his demo derbys and
set ways for the cars to be made safe. He does believe
in good, safe fun which you can see when you are at
one of his derbys. He pays more than fair and that
helps make them such a success.

Chuck Rush is only beginning. He has big plans for
his future and the future of his demo derby races. And
if last Saturday night is any indication of his bright future,
than Florida fans better watch out for his future demos.
And if you do love crashing and bashing and never quitting
until the last engine refuses to go, try a demo derby. And
better yet, try a Chuck "Junkyard Dog" Rush demo derby.
