By Brian Munoz

Daredevil Cyrus Nock, of Sarasota, Florida, balances on a wheel prop Friday, Aug. 25, 2017, during a performance of “The Nerveless Nocks Daredevil Circus,” at the DuQuoin State Fair.

“My family has had the company since 1840 – I’m an eigth generation daredevil,” Nock said. “We’ve traveled the world performing, I just love seeing the faces of the audience during the stunts.”
