Twisted Metal Mayhem is the official demolition derby of the Central Texas State Fair, and just judging by the name alone, you can bet that this event is all about providing the best kind of high-octane destruction.

Held at the Bell County Expo Center in Belton, Texas, this fun-for-all-ages extravaganza — which is billed as the largest indoor demo derby in Central Texas — features drivers from Kansas, Oklahoma, and, of course, the Lone Star State.

There are four official classes: Full Size, Compact, Mini Van, and Power Wheels for the kids. According to, demolition winners will receive prizes of $2,500, $1,500, or $500. As in, you can actually get paid just for being really good at slamming your twisted metal vehicle into someone else’s twisted metal vehicle. Heck, I know a decent amount of folks who would do something like this for free!

The twisted mind between Twisted Metal Mayhem is Pat Wilson, who has over 14 years experience running motorsports events all over the United States.

Wilson has also promoted over 30 demolition derbies, so even though the idea of a mini van demo derby may sound weird to you, trust us, this guy knows what he’s doing.

Now, while this year’s event was scheduled to take place on September 4, the coronavirus pandemic really threw a wrench into the works, and the derby has been postponed until 2021.

If you’re interested in getting more information about Twisted Metal Mayhem demolition derby tickets, the official website has got you covered. Also, the Central Texas State Fair website includes info on upcoming events, such as concerts and professional bull riding competitions.


Sure, this year’s fair may be cancelled as well, but hey, just something to look forward to for next year!
