Pit Pal Fold Down Table

  Racers are always struggling with work space at the race track. You can set up tables outside your hauler, but then you have to keep a sharp eye on all your expensive parts and tools. Plus, it is hard to keep parts clean at a dirt track when left outside. Meanwhile, you can set […]

Sammy Swindell

We remember when “The King” Richard Petty retired from NASCAR and we thought we’d never get used to not seeing him on the race track. Getting used to NOT seeing Sammy Swindell whenever the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars hit the track will be just as difficult. In a surprise move, Swindell announced today that […]

Hobby Stock race car Barrel Roll

Dirt Race Central shot this video from Princeton Speedway in Minnesota. We aren’t sure, but this looks like a Hobby Stock class competing. Driver Jake Bayerl goes a little too hot into turn four and hits the wall, which sends his car into a barrel roll. It looks like part of the problem is the […]

Sprint Car Flip

This wreck from the Knoxville Nationals will take your breath away. Sprint Cars are incredible machines, capable of astounding levels of performance, but one of the features too few appreciate is how well that large aluminum wing works as a shock absorber whenever a car rolls onto its lid. Driver Sheldon Haudenschild looks like he […]

Quick Rack 01

Most dirt track racers we know use scales, but few have invested in a scale rack because of the cost. A quality scale rack can help improve the repeatability of your setups and speed up the process because you don’t have to jack up the race car every time you want to put the car […]

HVH Super Sucker

High Velocity Heads has long been trusted among Dirt Late Model racers for their Super Sucker carb spacers. HVH already has a carb spacer for crate racers that’s seen quite a bit of success. In fact, after extensive testing Hendren Racing Engines recommends HVH’s 5/8 inch spacer in its excellent guide for making maximum horsepower in […]


In the course of my travels I get to see a lot of cool new places in addition to all of the tracks that I get to visit for the first time.  Honestly, that’s one of my favorite parts of my job in the motorsports world.  Getting paid to see the country is really a […]


The unique nature of the Comp Cams Topless 100 makes it one of our favorite events every year. Apparently, driver Jeff Taylor wanted to make the most of his Topless 100 weekend at Batesville Motor Speedway because he pulled double duty at the race  by competing in both the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series […]


It has been a long time coming–too long according to many racers–but the IMCA has made a rule change for next year that many will welcome. Beginning with the 2015 racing season the IMCA will allow quick change rearends in the Xtreme Motor Sports Modifieds class. Previously, IMCA brass had maintained that disallowing quick changes helped […]

Synchronized Spins

This video comes to us from the good folks at Dirt Zombie Video. The clips features a Thunder and Lightening race from Shelby, North Carolina’s Fairgrounds Speedway. The 48 and the 5 are racing hard when a bump sends both into a spin. We know synchronized swimming is a popular event in the summer Olympics, […]

World Nationals

Marshalltown Speedway will once again be holding its World Nationals event this September 18-20 with an incredible one hundred grand available to racers. Of course, what’s so cool about this is the money won’t be going to the big-name guys racing Super Late Models or Sprint Cars. Instead, Marshalltown is using the World Nationals event […]


The eleventh time the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series graced the clay of the Salina Highbanks Speedway, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. became the track’s seventh different winner; topping the field for the second time in 2014 in the inaugural Oklahoma Open-Wheel Thunder Nationals. It was his fourth career victory with the Lucas Oil ASCS. The […]

CLAIMER SBC 4V Top photo

Building a winning race engine is about a lot more than simply buying a bunch of expensive parts and throwing them together. Heck, we’ve seen plenty of engines with all the best parts have trouble just staying on the lead lap. A quality race engine that’s capable of winning races always features good parts selection […]

Tobey Sampson

With all the coverage of the tragic death of Kevin Ward Jr. in his incident with former NASCAR Champion Tony Stewart, it can get a bit depressing. And not that we want to forget about Kevin, but sometimes we need a reminder just how great racing can be. That’s why we dug up this video […]

Mr Gasket Dead Soft Aluminum Exhaust Manifold Gasket 7401G Hi-Res

Mr. Gasket announced the availability of its new “Dead Soft” Aluminum Exhaust and Collector Gaskets that we think may prove to be very beneficial to racers where extreme heat can become an issue. Mr Gasket’s techs say that each of the aluminum gaskets are engineered to provide superior sealing capability, high heat resistance and easy installation. […]


The Syracuse Post-Standard has published an interview with Kevin Ward Sr, the father of Kevin Ward Jr who was killed in a racing incident with Tony Stewart last weekend. By all accounts Ward Jr and Sr were close and enjoyed racing together, and we can certainly empathize with the grief that the entire Ward family is […]


There is still plenty of racing left, but drivers are already beginning to clinch championships. Ricky Weiss is the latest of them. Weiss and the team concluded their busy stint with the Blaine Brothers Challenge Series over the weekend, and by the time the dust had settled Weiss was officially crowned the series champion in […]

Sprint Car Flies Into the Flagstand

We bet this is a race the flag man will never forget! This clip is a wingless Sprint Car race, and it doesn’t take long for things to go sideways. Exiting turn four a pair of cars get tangled, and then the cars behind get caught up in it too. Next thing you know once of […]
