After a sold out, two-day demolition derby event in May, the Plaza Hotel & Casino will host the Sin City Showdown Demolition Derby at its Core Arena, for three days, Nov. 14-16.
Produced by Stirrin Dirt Racing, the largest demolition derby promoter in the west, the Sin City Showdown will offer a third day of action, with shows at 3 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 14 and Friday, Nov. 15 and an additional 11 a.m. matinee and 5 p.m. evening show on Saturday, Nov. 16.
The November event will feature thirty-two 4-man teams – that’s 128 old Detroit iron cars battling it out in an elimination bracket to be the last team standing. On Saturday, a locals’ only heat has been added, featuring drivers just from the Las Vegas area in a 1990’s and newer car class.
“The demolition derby at the Plaza in March was simply amazing,” said Jonathan Jossel, Plaza Hotel & Casino CEO. “The Core Arena was full to capacity for this fun, family friendly, action-packed event. Given its popularity and success, we are excited to welcome a bigger, three-day demolition derby event to the Core Arena and downtown Las Vegas this November.”
Stirrin’ Dirt Racing is currently working on a television series set to air this fall featuring the owners: Johnny Gullo #17, Jim “Gumby” Simko #000, Dalton Gullo #16 and Jeri Gullo #17 plus other drivers from the western U.S. The show will also highlight the Sin City Showdown.
“Drivers from all over the country – east to west, north to south – and even as far as Canada are coming to Las Vegas to participate in the Sin City Showdown,” said Gullo. “We are excited at the chance to become the largest demolition derby in the United States.”
A family friendly event, children three and under can attend for free.
Tickets can be purchased online: single day tickets are $45 and discounted tickets at $30 per day are available with a hotel room reservation (prices do not include taxes and fees).
