Bridgeport locals circa 1976 gather in Old Comiskey Park's parking lot to host the 1st (and last) annual Demolition Derby. The event was organized by the late Billy Lazaro to cap off an annual softball game held at Armour Park which lies in the shadows of the former Chicago Whitesox's stadium. The Derby would become known as the "10 Inning Spectacular & Shootout" Red Gang members from the predominantly Italian 26th Street side of Bridgeport battled it out against their Irish rivals from 33rd Street with their junk automobiles.
