Busti, NY (August 27, 2014): Brian Horner's Stateline Auto Parts has agreed to partner with Bill Catania's Stateline Speedway to revive a favorite fan tradition, the annual Epic Labor Day Demolition Derby. The two businesses have often partnered over the years and this is a "natural fit" for a salvage yard, where many early race-cars were built. Speedway CEO Bill Catania stated "Stateline Speedway is thrilled to partner with Brian Horner and Stateline Auto Parts as our exclusive Auto Recycling Partner for Labor Day Demo Derby. Brian has been a friend of Stateline Speedway for a long time and we are thankful to continue that relationship for years to come".

The annual tradition began in 1962 and was known as the ”100-Car Demo Derby" and will now be known as the "Brian J Horner Inc Epic Demo". This year the event will begin at 1 PM with gates opening at 9 AM for the pit and fan gates opening at noon.

Second will be $1000 for Full Sized and $500 for Compacts with third places getting $500 (Full Size) and $250 (Compact). There will also be a "Best of Show" award of $250. The car deemed the "Hardest Hitter" will be awarded $25 in each heat and $50 in both features.
