Late Model Hits Wall

This clip from Speedyd10 on YouTube stopped us in our tracks. It’s one of the hardest hits we’ve ever seen on the race track. The description doesn’t say if the driver was injured, and there are no comments yet, either. If you know where this was shot, when it happened or if the driver was […]

Modifieds at Volusia

The Florida Speedweeks are all done and racers have dispersed back across the country preparing for their own racing series. But that doesn’t mean we can’t relive all the fun and excitement. The World of Outlaws put together this very cool retrospective of all the racing that took place during the DIRTcar Nationals held at […]


clanton022415

Domination just doesn’t begin to describe what Shane Clanton accomplished last week at Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Florida during the 44th Annual DIRTCar Nationals. The Georgia hot shoe made history by becoming the first driver to ever win four Dirt Late Model events in a week at the historic oval, and along the way […]

RaceCar Endo

Here’s a short clip from the Hornets race in Carolina Speedway’s Skyler Trull Memorial race last season. Racer Isaac Sosebee in the white car (what is that, a Cavalier?) appears to clip the bumper of the yellow car just in front going into the turn and winds up in the wall. Nothing too unusual there, […]

More and more race teams are realizing how a strong shock program can benefit their racing. They are working more closely with dedicated shock tuners or purchasing their own shock dyno and building shocks themselves.

Shocks are becoming increasingly important to a winning race program. Being able to dyno test your own shocks can mean the difference between finding your own advantage or depending on somebody else for one   In many ways, dirt racing is just like ordinary life: Technology continually evolves and you either keep up or get […]

  Team Dillon Racing with Austin Dillon and Ty Dillon at the helm enjoyed an outstanding week of racing at the DIRTCar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park (Gibsonton, Florida), where the duo collectively claimed four wins, the $5,000 Gator Championship, and the overall UMP Modified DIRTCar Nationals title. Austin Dillon raced to the victory in […]


Brad Sweet Wins Volusia

Kasey Kahne Racing practically dominated the 2015 edition of the DIRTCar Nationals held at Volusia Speedway Park, thanks in large part to Brad Sweet’s charging victory on Sunday night. After starting from the fifth spot, Sweet had made it all the way to the first position by lap seven and battled Paul McMahan for the […]


Memphis International Raceway dirt track

The past few months have been an insanely busy time with countless twists and turns, when it comes to developments for the new dirt track that will be built at Memphis International Raceway (MIR) in Memphis, Tennessee. My first installment of this series of articles, outlining the behind-the-scenes work that goes into designing and building […]


Daryn Pittman Sprint Car

This may be just another day at the office for Sprint Car racer Daryn Pittman, but it is a pretty cool view for most of the rest of us. Kasey Kahne Racing mounted a camera in Pittman’s 410 Sprint Car as he raced at Volusia Speedway Park and we get to watch a great battle […]


Davis Technologies' least expensive traction control unit has a street price of less than $1,900 and requires just three wires to be hooked up for installation.

Traction control systems are the subject that nobody really wants to talk about in racing. But that doesn’t mean they don’t exist, and in many dirt track racing classes they are even legal. We wanted to find out more about what exactly is going on and how they work. Shannon Davis is the owner of […]

Here's a traditional magnetic pickup distributor. The problem with this technology is it can be difficult for the sensor to determine exactly when the end of the reluctor has passed by when the engine is running at high rpm levels.

We’ve seen it time and again: Racers who are absolutely genius with a wrench in their hands are left cussing and spitting when an electrical problem crops up on the race car.  As mechanical people, we are trained to think when part A moves, part B should react in a specific way. And when part […]


Synchrinized Sprint Car Spin

Here’s a clip from the Tyson Perez Memorial race at Borderline Raceway during an Australian Sprintcar Allstars event. We’re still trying to figure out if the second driver spun his car on purpose to avoid a collision or if the second spin was just dumb luck. Either way, this is one of the closes double spins […]


USRA
