The Madison Demolition Derby on Saturday night was filled with loud engine noises, the smell of burning fluids, smoke and lots of dust as drivers crashed into each other in the compact and stock class.

Some 750 people packed the stands at the Madison Business Association-owned outdoor arena, located on the east side of the city.

The Madison Area Business Association has staged a demolition derby for more than 25 years. It was originally held at the Threlkeld Area, which is now a part of the Madison C-3 School property. The event is a fundraiser for the organization, with profits used to assist people in a time of need, support various organizations at the school, give two scholarships each year to a graduating senior, assist area residents in a time of need and other projects. Association members hang Christmas decorations in the downtown and U.S. Highway 24 area of Madison; and hold an Easter egg hunt each year for area children.

Here are the winners from Saturday night:

Compact Class: 1st, Blake Hultz, Madison; 2nd, Wil Lawrence; 3rd Richard Stevenson; 4th, Derrick Dudley; 5th, Josh Gordon.

Stock Class: 1st, Frank Hancock, Madison; 2nd, Steven Lawrence; 3rd, Anthony Bock; 4th, Michael Moore; 5t6h, Joe Martin.
