Drivers battle in Wausau demolition derby


Demolition derby drivers showed off their skills on Sunday afternoon at the third day of the Wausau Jaycee's Fourth of July celebration in Marathon Park.

People watched while the drivers battled to be the last ones running as they gear up for the finals on Sunday night. Some say watching the derby has become a family tradition.

"The crashes, the people watching. It's just a lot of fun every year," said Jayne Waksmonski, who lives in Wausau. "Then we'll walk around and eat cheese curds, have hamburgers, come back and watch the finals for tonight."

There was plenty more to do around Marathon Park. Some played games and checked out rides, while others ate traditional fair food. The 4th of July celebration continues there for a couple more days -- and wraps up on Wednesday night.
