Combines battle at Bremer County Fair

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds gathered at the Bremer County Fair Wednesday night to watch the toughest combines in the area duke it out. 

The ninth-annual Combine Demolition Derby featured combines ramming and crashing into each other.  

The final two combines from each round advance to a final round, where the winner is given a cash prize.  

Combines are often seen in Iowa fields, but rarely in a unique event like this. 

"It's just something different to do because there (are) not that many of these derbies around, it doesn't seem like," said John Dilger a derby participant. "This is one of the bigger ones in Iowa."

All of the combines in the derby are specifically modified to improve safety for both the drivers and the fans.
