It’s 10:30 on a Friday night and the lights of faraway Boston bleach the hem of the darkness as I travel at exactly 73 miles per hour toward Logan Airport.

NEW HAVEN — Over the course of two evenings last week at the Addison County Fair and Field Days, twisted metal, shredded rubber and a few puddles of flaming gasoline covered the dirt track at the No. 1 Auto Parts Demolition Derby.

The longstanding attraction on the tractor pad at the fair brought its share of thrills, dust, noise and, in the end, confusion and outrage when two-time state champion Justin Bolster walked away with the grand prize at the end of Thursday night’s big feature.
