Fans flock to fair for ‘metal mayhem’

This is a truth about humanity that no one can seem to deny: Whenever there's a car accident, nearby drivers and passengers can't help but break their necks to see what had happened.This is also true for demolition derby.But in this particular setting, there's no guilt involved for the spectators. Just a lot of cheering and hollering, encouraging the demolition drivers to smash to pieces whatever is closest to them.

No secrets in pro fishing

This past week the FLW Nation Guard Western Division Series Tournament was held on the Delta. The tournament was eventually won by Discovery Bay's Don Davis.

Fair makes changes for motocross event

Every year hundreds of motocross riders and fans pack the FoodMaxx Arena during the Stanislaus County Fair. The motocross event is a popular attraction at the fair and draws a large number of riders, making each event a long affair, often going into the wee hours of the morning. The 38th District Agricultural Association Board of Directors decided to make a change that will, hopefully, give motocross riders and their fans a little bit more slumber time. On Monday, the board unanimously approved to have daytime preliminary races, then a slack period prior to the main motocross event.
