Marysville Destruction Derby
The Marysville Destruction Derby 2023 is Saturday at 2pm at Marysville Raceway, 1468 Simpson Lane.
For more than 60 years Marysville Raceway has provided a motorsports venue for the Yuba Sutter area. That tradition had been expanded with the addition of a Destruction Derby on Saturday afternoon October 14.
“We don’t know when the last Destruction Derby was held at the Raceway,” explained track manager Dennis Gage. “We’ve found a mix of events pleases the local fan,” He continued. “These local derby teams need a place to run out their 2023 Derby cars and we have the perfect setting for that here in Marysville,” Gage concluded.
The Derby pit gate will open at 8 am on the 14th while the spectator gate will open at 2 pm. The event gets underway at 3 pm. Spectator tickets are $17 for adults, $15 for juniors and seniors, and $8 for kids. Discounted tickets are also available online at Marysvilleraceway.com.
The derby will consist of a series of heat races and main events for full size cars and trucks. The number of entries will govern the total events. The last car running in each event will get a portion of the prize money up for grabs that day. Rules, information, and entries may be obtained from 209-566-4280.
