Koch Racing Promotions began in 2016 after the loss of a great friend, Tim Tygart. Tim was the original promoter of the Turkey Derby. Before he passed away, he asked that we continue the show, and thus The Annual Tim Tygart Memorial Turkey Derby began. Every year at this show we raise money for Halie's (Tim's daughter) college fund. We are grateful for your love, support, donations, & dedication! 

Over the course of Koch Racing's promoting journey, we've met so many incredible people and made so many great memories. Our goal is to continue having awesome shows for everyone to enjoy and making amazing memories with all of you in the years to come. We hope that the Turkey Derby will always be a place for our drivers and fans to call home.

Kody Koch

Promoter

Kody has been around demolition derby his entire life. He ran his first show at age 12 (which happened to be one of Tim's shows), and continues to derby today. He enjoys sculpting sick body lines on his and Jason's cars.

 

When it comes to the show, Kody is a jack of all trades. He's our marketing pro, the guy who answers all your build questions, a tech official, a flagman, and much more.

Jason Koch

Promoter

Breanna fell in love with demoliton derby when she first saw Kody derby! She's been the designated video person ever since.

 

When it comes to the show, Bre works hard behind the scenes to make our shows flow smoothly. You can find her anywhere from driver check in at the gate to the winner's presentation at the end of the night and everywhere in between.

Teffany was introduced to demolition derby as a teenager. She has enjoyed competing in local county shows and smashing into her husband Jason!

 

When it comes to the show, Teffany works behind the scenes and greets you at the gate. You can also find her in the drivers' meeting and the winner's presentation.

Jason has been involved in demolition derby since his teenage years. His passion and dedication to the sport are undeniable! Aside from competing in national shows, he builds some serious horsepower and enjoys helping his fellow drivers/builders grow.

When it comes to the show, you'll find Jason in the tech line and on the wall making sure our drivers are staying safe.

Our extended team

We'd like to thank all of our workers and crew members for their hard work and dedication. We could not make this show happen without them. Thank you for all you all do! We appreciate each and every one of you!
