The Sedalia Lions Club is proud to present their 11th annual Compact Figure 8 Scramble and Tuff Truck Challenge. It’ll be held on Sept. 9 at 6:00 p.m. at the State Fair Arena on the Missouri State Fairgrounds.

I know we talk about this every year, 'cos, you know, it's an institution at this point. The Fair's over, the kids are back in school, and it's time to smash the heck out of some cars. But in case you forgot, or you're new to this, why don't I explain how this works. A "Figure 8 Scramble" is when a racetrack meets a demolition derby.

It's the 11th year they've done something like this, and it's clear that Sedalia is looking forward to it. People around here really love any kind of outdoor activity, and as the summer is winding down there's always a want to see something exciting.

The Lions Club is a great local group doing a lot of good. They do whatever is needed to help their local communities. They work with children who need eyeglasses, with seniors who don’t have enough to eat and with people they may never meet. So help the Lions club help the people in Pettis County who need it the most while attending a really fun, action-packed event. Come join 'em for an action packed night of family fun as they'll have Power-wheels, full size bone-stock, powderpuff figure 8, and our premier class, the compact figure 8! And who doesn't like smashing stuff up? I know you do. Don't pretend.

General admission for adults is $10, and for kids 6-12 is $5. A Pit Pass is available for $20. They’ll have a $30 entry fee per class, a rider fee for the Figure 8 only. Plus, kids under 5 get in free, and there's free entry for the Powerwheels (aged 0-10). They'll have food too, and not for some ultra crazy price, it's totally reasonable.
