DEMOLITION DERBY LEAGUE | Official home of demolition derbies & combative motorsports

About the LEAGUE

“DEMOLITION DERBY: A competitive, combative motorsport in which drivers deliberately and repeatedly crash motorized vehicles into each other, on a racetrack or in an enclosed area, with the winner being the last vehicle still moving after all others have been disabled.  Oftentimes, these events are held at county fairs and festivals.  Some variations include figure 8, enduro, banger, roll-over, Siamese, train, and other racing styles.”


The DEMOLITION DERBY LEAGUE (DDL) is a volunteer-based organization that serves to promote all types of combative, motorized sports. The membership is composed of drivers, car builders, team owners, crew members, event promoters, track owners, sponsors, media interests, fans and enthusiasts.
