What You Need to Know about JM Motorsport Productions Events


"In my opinion they (JM Productions) have the fairest/safest rules around. The officiating has always been good. I have yet to see them play favorites!!!… If you want to run in a derby the way the sport was when it stared out, run in a JM Productions show. If you want to run in a show where you don’t need to have a welder or a set of torches to be competitive, run in a JM Productions show. If you want to run in a show where you have just as much a chance at winning a feature as the guy who pulls up next to you, run in a JM Productions show. If you want to run in a well run show, run in a JM Productions show.

As posted on the IDDA Message Board with permission by Robert Shaffer (driver):



We pride ourselves on producing a safe, family-friendly show where you don’t have to be a “motorhead” to win. Whether you run in the “World’s Largest Demolition Derby®”, “Championship Double Figure 8 Racing®” or “Stock Car Football®” event, we know it will be an experience you’ll never forget!

Championship Double Figure 8 Racing®
is a form of Action Racing developed by JM Productions a few years ago using compact cars to enhance the excitement for drivers and spectators. This form of Figure "8", unlike other forms, is in front of the Grandstand on the Race Track, in a minimum area of 40 feet wide x 120 feet long for a single track and 230 feet for a double track. Utilizing smaller lightweight cars takes on all the excitement of a full sized Figure 8. Speeds average between 5 and 15 miles an hour and only 5 to 10 cars are allowed on the track at one time. Drivers need to out-think and out-maneuver their competitors in order to win. Because of the challenge this event presents, its popularity is growing.

Show time: 1½ - 2 hours
Space Minimum: Single 8 needs 40' X 120';
Double 8 needs 40' X 230'
Track: Multi-surface

"Stock Car Football®"
The object of "Stock Car Football®" is to push the six-foot football down the track to the goal line. The event involves 16-24 cars and drivers in team form. Each team consists of 2 or 3 cars. Two cars can be on the playing "field" at one time. Any time a car leaves the playing field, a substitute or back-up car may enter. The football is placed in the center of the track. The team getting the ball over the goal line scores a touchdown. Stock Car Football is a favorite event at county fairs. The secret to the success of the event is the durability of the “football”. Covering this 6-foot, monster ball is roofing material supplied by Johns Manville Corporation. This material sure takes a beating! If it can withstand this event, it can take anything nature would throw its way. Book an Event.

Show time: 1½ - 2 hours
Space Minimum: 40' X 100'
Track: Multi-surface

"World's Largest Demolition Derby"
Nothing can compare to the "World's Largest Demolition Derby®" for bringing the fans to the Grandstands! Always a crowd pleaser, the derby has been a featured event over 1,000 times throughout our 50-year history. We can smash, crash and bash just about anything! Big cars, little cars, buses, mini vans, and more! Book an Event. Our reputation for a fair, safe, quality show is un-matched by any other motorsport producer. No fair is too big or too small for the "Biggest Hit" of motorsports.

Show time: 1½ - 2 hours
Space Minimum: 40’ X 70”
Track: Multi-surface
