Casino Battle Royale Demolition Derby returns to Las Vegas

5 March 2020

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The Core Arena at the Plaza Hotel and Casino is proud to again host the Casino Battle Royal Demolition Derby produced by Stirrin Dirt Racing, the largest demolition derby promoter in the west, 26-28 March.

The family-friendly event debuted at the Core Arena in March 2019. This year, it will expand to three days of smashing fun featuring a variety of mini car, iron truck and farm truck heats. The event will begin at 4 p.m. on Thursday, 26 March and Friday, 27 March and at 3 p.m. on Saturday, 28 March, with doors opening one-hour prior.

Available online, a single day ticket is $45, and a three-day event ticket is $135. Discounted tickets with a hotel stay are also available. While supplies last and only available at the Plaza Box Office, locals can save $15 on their single-day tickets by showing their Nevada ID. All ticket prices are plus taxes and fees.

On Saturday, 28 March at 7 p.m., a free After Party will be held under the Plaza’s iconic dome. All ages are welcome to the party that will offer music, drink specials, and wrestling presented by Snake Pit Pro Wrestling Academy. Las Vegas showgirls will also be on hand to present the awards to the demolition derby winners at 10 p.m. and available for photo opportunities with guests.

“Demolition derbies produced by Stirrin Dirt Racing at the Core Arena have been immensely popular, selling out each time,” said Jonathan Jossel, Plaza Hotel & Casino CEO. “Its fun for all ages and brings more people to downtown Las Vegas. We are proud that unique events like demolition derbies have found a home at the Plaza’s Core Arena.”

Stirrin’ Dirt Racing is a production company created by Johnny Gullo and Jim “Gumby” Simko in 1999 to raise the level of the sport of demolition derby by increasing the payouts to the drivers. Over the years, Stirrin’ Dirt Racing has expanded into producing Monster Truck events and music concerts, providing stunt driving and vehicles to movies, music videos, photo shoots and television shows, such as Top Gear, Dr. Who, and Johnny Christ. It has also raised more than $1 million for charity through its projects and work with the American Dream Foundation.
