Entries are being accepted, and tickets on sale for the 2013 Derby, which starts at 6:30 pm with time trials.  Gates open at 4pm, and remember - ALL Seats Are Reserved!  So make sure you get your tickets now.  You can do it online at the Fair Website.

Townsquare Media will again be helping to host the event with announcers John McKay from 97.5 KOOL FM and Newstalk 870, and AJ from 97Rock.
