The 2016 Boone County Fair will keep with tradition and bring the Demolition Derby back on the last day of the fair.

At the 2015 Boone County Fair, there were several local and neighboring county winners throughout the derby events on Sunday, Aug. 16.

Brian White, of Belvidere, won the feature competition at the 1 p.m. show, which sent $2,000 his way, along with another $1,000 for having the best finish among Boone County drivers.

Timothy Zeigler from Machesney Park was second in the feature; John Jamison of Byron was third; Paul Walker of Belvidere was fourth; and Michael Vonderheide of Rockton was fifth.

In the 1 p.m. bone stock event, Michael Roman of Capron came in first, which was good for $1,000, with Perry Morkel, also from Capron, in second. Jack Roman of Poplar Grove finished third.

Demolition 2Belvidere’s Mike Lungstrom pocketed $3,000 in the 6 p.m. derby for winning the feature, which also meant he claimed the highest place among county drivers. Brian White came close to repeating as the feature champion, coming in second, which meant another $1,000 check for him.

They were followed by Chris Nelson, of Belvidere, in third; Jack Johnson, of Capron, in fourth; and Michael White, Freeport of, in fifth. These finishes earned each driver $500.
