Tim Haniszewski Jr Wins Demolition Derby State Championship At New York State Fair
Over the weekend at the Great New York State Fair Tim Haniszewski Jr. won the state demolition derby state championship in Syracuse.
Thousands of spectators came out to the grandstand for what state officials are now saying was the last demolition derby ever at the New York State Fair.
According to Syracuse.com, Haniszewski won with a 1995 Toyota Camry that he bought for $250 in Buffalo off of Craigslist. The car had over 281,000 miles on it, and he bought it from an older woman.
An 85-year-old woman was selling the Camry. She'd bought it new, and she drove it for 20 years, and she felt some affection for the vehicle. It could be a good car for you, she told Tim Jr."
