Wheel See You There!
By Emily Sladek
Whether you find favor in big trucks, fast cars, smashed cars or derby dolls, four-wheeled fun is all around, and this weekend isn't lacking in any of that fun. However you decide to roll, check out some of these events on four wheels!
For the roller derby enthusiasts, check out the Cape Girardeau Roller Girls (CGRG) or the Southern Illinois Roller Girls (SIRG) this weekend as they both have home bouts. CGRG will take on the Clarksville, TN team The Red River Sirens at AC Brase Arena, while SIRG will have a double header at their home track at The Pavillion in Marion. Both events will be Saturday, July 13.
Another derby for the day is the Demolition Derby at the Ste. Genevieve County Fair. The demo derby will take place July 13 at 7pm at the fairgrounds. There will be the familiar favorite derby action with a special "mini-car" heat as well. Prizes will be awarded and fun will be had! As part of the fair, there will also be a tractor and a truck pull.
For those who wish to be covered in a sloppy mess of mud, check out Brick's Offroad Park as they host their Queen of the Slough and Jet-Ski Racing July 12 & 13. Ladies leave your men at home as you get the chance to conquer the infamous "slough" mud pit in this ladies-only go around of the event for a $3000 cash prize. If you have to bring them though, all are invited to join in on the fun of the jet-ski races on the boat track during the weekend too.
And last but not least, for the car enthusiasts enjoy an evening of cars, music, and giveaways at Cruisin' Uptown Jackson. See cars old and new as the sound system rings out tunes of the decades of the cars that are represented. Bring your ride to show off and stay as long as you like.
Now that you know about all of the fun on four wheels, check out our calendars to find all of the details and much more this weekend.
