Question about English (US)

Would you tell me the meaning of the sentence below ?

"The jacket got tore up in that demolition derby over by Washington."

1. What does 'over' mean ? 'far from here' ?

2. What does 'by Washington' mean ? The derby was held by Washington?

Is it usual that a city holds some demolition derby officially ?

Would you help me with the two questions above ?
