The Derby is designed as an unusual spectator attraction. Every entrant is subject to the following rules and regulation in the interest of safety and equal competition. The Sullivan County Fair does not imply or guarantee safety. Total responsibility for the inspection of the car and rule compliance is by the owner/driver, not the Sullivan County Fair.
