Derby cars vandalized after Spring Smash

Someone had broken alcohol bottles all over the cars, slashed the tires, and tried to kick off the roof sign

I am writing to you today about the demolition derby last Saturday.

I competed in the event and love putting on a show for the people of Hope. I had placed second in the main event but also injured myself after the show.

I left both my figure eight race car and my demolition derby car at the grounds until the tow truck could pick them up the next day.

The tow truck had broken down and I had to wait another day for my vehicles to be picked up.

When I arrived to pickup my cars, I noticed they had been vandalized. Someone had broken alcohol bottles all over my cars, slashed all my tires on both cars, and tried to kick off my roof sign.

Now we put a lot of time and money into these cars. I am writing you because I am hurt and I don’t know if I want to come back to compete in this town because by someone doing this, I don’t feel they appreciate the show we put on for them.

It’s sad how someone would go out of their way to do this. Anyway, I hope this gets out to people in Hope.

Dave Knoller,

Chilliwack
