McCONNELLSBURG, PA. -- As a longtime spectator of demolition derbies, it didn't take much to convince Dennis Richards to volunteer a few cars for the cause. "A little arm twisting," said the 62-year-old owner of Richards Auto Sales in McConnellsburg, Pa. "The cars were sitting in the back lot - parts cars. But they still ran.
