Originated by the Sumnerve Brothers, concluded by Patrick Sumner and Chris Snipes.


Civil War on Wheels is based on the demolition derby series of the same name promoted by Greg Clemons. While my brother Brandon and I, the Sumnerve Brothers, were following Mac McClanahan and the We Ain't Stupid derby team we met Greg in 2004. We shot the derbies and grew engrossed into the drama of the sub-cultural sport.

Plot Outline

Outlines the intersection of Kansas versus Missouri drivers in such County Fairs as Platte, Cass, and Wyandotte in the Greater Kansas City Metro region. This film follows various perspectives of derby drivers and their ambitions to win "heats." Follows the intersection of Greg Clemon's Civil War on Wheels derby promotions, and Mac McClanahan's derby team We Ain't Stupid as the Mac team kinda stood apart from all the other drivers. We Ain't Stupid being partly made up of "big city" artists and eccentrics! It is a hell of a film full of car crashes, bluegrass music and it throws dust right off the screen!
