Don't worry, though; he was all right. They got his truck flipped back over, and he was able to continue racing.
During the course of the evening, in between heats, they amused us with other diversions such as the car-eating dinosaur, Megasaurus, and the world's first jet-powered Smart Car.
Last night was a bit quieter. It rained all day, so the tractor pulls were canceled. Instead, the kids got to ride some of the fair rides, thanks to a generous friend. The rides are expensive enough that we never pay for the kids to ride, so this was an extra special treat for them. They also enjoyed the petting zoo where they each got to pet a real live baby zebra.

Tomorrow night is the school bus demolition derby. Every year I say that there is just something wrong with vehicles that are supposed to safely transport children to school backing up into each other as fast as they can for the purpose of destroying each other, but IT IS SO MUCH FUN TO WATCH!!
