Sights and sounds: demolition derby

Listen to this story
Summer in the North Country means field day festivals for virtually every town and hamlet. It's tough to keep up with all the chicken barbeques, fire engine parades, and lawn mower races. But for the automotive lovers, nothing beats the demolition derby. Hundreds of drivers sign up each summer for the chance to crash their rides into one another.

David Sommerstein went to the demolition derby in Hannawa Falls ten years ago to hear the roar of the engines and the crunch of metal.

And photographer Mark Kurtz was at the demolition deby earlier this week at the Franklin County Fair in Malone to capture the action.
