Ryan Duke celebrates his win at the Amador Fair Destruction Derby.

Ryan Duke of Buena Vista took first place in the Amador County Fair Destruction Derby last Sunday night, ending two-time defending champion Bryan Belmares’ hopes for a three-peat.

Duke was driving car number 10-4, a 1975 Chrysler Cordoba, still running strong while the other three dozen cars lay maimed and immobile.
