The rest of the world is about to find out what some Utahns already know: Our pretty great state is a hotbed of demolition derby action.
Weekend after weekend, in arenas hither and yon, drivers like Layton’s Steve “Scooter” Carroll and West Haven’s Johnny Gullo are tearing it up in the dirt, bent on smashing the living daylights out of each other.
And once the derby’s over, these guys are hard at work in their shops, rebuilding their cars to go out and do it all over again.
The drama of Utah’s demolition derby circuit is the focus of “Kings of Crash,” a new reality television series debuting next Sunday, Feb. 10, on the Velocity channel. Drivers Carroll and Gullo, along with Gullo’s 20-year-old son Dalton, are three of eight “four-wheeled gladiators” whose lives were documented by TV crews during last summer’s competitive season.
