Follow the jump for video

What do you get when you bust out the Krylon and some stencils, add race liveries to combines, and then crash them into each other? You get the best freakin' demolition derby ever, in which the participants harvest record crops of awesome with every smash.

This, in a nutshell, is the thing of beauty otherwise known as the Washington Combine Demolition Derby. 2008's combine carnage is scheduled for Saturday, June 14, and we have never wanted to attend something more in our entire lives. Even if we don't go, at least we can still score ourselves a t-shirt or hat. How this hasn't yet been turned into a top-selling video game is beyond our comprehension -- we'd put down Prologue for this if it had online play. For a taste of the spectacle, follow the jump for video! Thanks for the tip, Scott!

      This is nothing new. My home town in Ontario did a combine derby over 10 years ago. They went back to the regular car derby the next year.

      These aren't as much fun as they sound. Keep in mind combines don't move very fast. The last combine derby I went to was pretty much a sumo match.

        I agree, I went in 2006. It's fun to see, but pretty slow paced compared to other destruction derbies. The complete lack of safety cage does make it interesting to watch though, and there is no better place to people watch.

      I get the impression that this event was likely started by someone saying "hold my beer, and watch this..."

      my finace's dad was just talking about this yesterday. She said, they do what? no way.

      Now I can show her that her dad isn't full of sheet. Thanks Autoblog.

      Exactly Pickup truck or compact car demo derby's are more fun, cause they MOVE!
