A different kind of demolition derby

It's a demolition derby with a cutting difference -- riding mowers.

Promoter John Peck says every Kentucky county fair his Top Dog Promotions is working with wants the mowers.

Peck tells says The Kentucky Enquirer his demo derbies usually have 35-50 mowers.

One Kenton Court Fair official says the mower derbies are very funny.

For safety's sake, the drivers are enclosed in a roll cage and the mowers don't have any cutting blades.

There's no mulching, but plenty of crunching.
