The Sedalia Lions Club is proud to present their 10th annual Compact Figure 8 Scramble. It’ll be held on Sept. 10th at 6:00 p.m. at the State Fair Arena (Gates open at 5:00) on the Missouri State Fairgrounds.

A "Figure 8 Scramble" is when a racetrack meets a demolition derby. It is guaranteed to be a great time - because the Sedalia Lions know how to have fun! And I mean, who doesn't like to see stuff get smashed up to bits? You know I do. It's satisfying to watch - and to know you're not going to be the one paying for it.  Here's what's going on:

We will start the evening off with our Power Wheels race. Children 10 and under can bring their power wheels and compete in their own Figure 8 race. The adults are up next with with 6 heats of Figure 8 racing, followed with 3 B-Mains an the final Figure 8 Race. If any cars are still able to move we will have a Powder Puff Figure 8, where only females can drive in. This year we have added a compact demolition derby to the night.
So as you can see, they're switching it up a a bit. People around here really love any kind of outdoor activity, and as the summer is winding down there's always a want to see something exciting. Check out this video of the race from not last year, but the year before.

The Lions Club is a great local group doing a lot of good. They do whatever is needed to help their local communities. They work with children who need eyeglasses, with seniors who don’t have enough to eat and with people they may never meet. So help the Lions club help the people in Pettis County who need it the most while attending a really fun, action-packed event.

General admission for adults is $10, and for kids 6-12 is $5. A Pit Pass is available for $20. They’ll have a $30 entry fee per class, a rider fee for the Figure 8 only. Plus, kids under 5 get in free, and there's free entry for the Powerwheels (aged 0-10). They'll have food too, and not for some ultra crazy price, it's totally reasonable.

LOOK: Milestones in women's history from the year you were born

Women have left marks on everything from entertainment and music to space exploration, athletics, and technology. Each passing year and new milestone makes it clear both how recent this history-making is in relation to the rest of the country, as well as how far we still need to go. The resulting timeline shows that women are constantly making history worthy of best-selling biographies and classroom textbooks; someone just needs to write about them.

Scroll through to find out when women in the U.S. and around the world won rights, the names of women who shattered the glass ceiling, and which country's women banded together to end a civil war.
