Annual Destruction Derby

Interview with Senior Dillon Ellis

The Demolition Derby is an annual staple in the Bishop Tri County fair and for the first time ever BUHS had a student driver during the derby. Not only did BUHS have a student driver it had the auto teacher Mr. Davis and senior Dillon Ellis. Dillon Ellis’ car was so nice that it actually won the beauty contest.  I was lucky enough to sit down with DIllon and get a quick interview with him.

Q “Do you know if you are the first ever high school derby driver.”

A “No I don’t think so”

Q “Was the outcome what you expected.”

A “No I was pissed I got stuck in the back fender of someone’s car and got stuck and couldn’t do anything for the rest of the derby.”

Q “Was this an overall learning experience for the next time or was this just a one time thing that you’ll never do again.”

A”No I’m going to do it again for sure i’m going to buy the car from Davis and definitely do it again.”

Q “How did you feel getting stuck so early on in the round.”

A “I was so mad I almost freaked out in the middle of the derby, I had to keep my composure otherwise i would have freaked out in the middle of the arena.”

Q “What are you doing with your car, are you fixing it up or are you waiting to decide if you are going to do it again next year.”

A “Nothing is wrong with it i just got stuck and knowing I couldn’t do anything was just literally the worst.”
