The Stanislaus County Fair’s popular motorhome destruction derby event will be featured on an upcoming episode of “The World According to Jeff Goldblum.”
Actor Jeff Goldblum (“Jurassic Park,” “Independence Day,” “The Fly”) interviewed attendees of the Stanislaus Count Fair’s Destruction Derby event in July for a new National Geographic docuseries on motor homes. The film crew came to Turlock, Fair spokeswoman Adrenna Alkhas said, after having discovered the event has one of the best motor home derbies in the country. The Turlock Lions Club, who is the promoter of the Derby events at the fair, provided specific motorhomes for Goldblum to ride in and interviewed Greg Mathews, whose family has entered the Derby for generations.
The reality series originally developed at National Geographic and now premiering as part of the initial rollout of the Disney+ streaming service, will release the “RVs” episode with scenes from the Stanislaus County Fair on Dec. 27.
