2013 Eldora World 100

OneDirt’s World 100 Week continues on. Yesterday, we brought you a video showcasing the history of the great event which was also an interesting look at how the Late Model race cars have advanced over the years. If you missed it, it is definitely worth checking out and you can see it here. Today, we […]


  We’ve been working behind the scenes on a big project for weeks here at OneDirt, and we’re excited that we can finally announce it. Performance Piston manufacturer JE Pistons has recently signed on as the newest member of the OneDirt family, and to celebrate the occasion we’re working together to bring a lucky member […]

Classic Eldora Late Model Racing

One of the biggest events in the world of dirt racing–Eldora’s World 100 for Late Models–takes place this week. And in honor of that we’re unofficially calling this “World 100 Week.” It has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? The racing won’t start until Thursday, but we’ve got a great lineup of features ready […]

Comp Cams Super Dirt Series

The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) presented by Lucas Oil has seen its big Labor Day weekend washed away by Mother Nature. Rain just before race time on Friday night drenched the stellar field of 38 entries on hand for the series debut at Crowley’s Ridge Raceway in Paragould, Arkansas on Friday night.  The $3,000-to-win event has been […]

Tony Stewart

Tony Steward, understandably, has been out of contact since a tragic racing accident that killed Sprint Car racer Kevin Ward Jr in upstate New York on August 9. The three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion has scratched himself from the last three Cup races, nor has he been back in a Sprint Car since the incident. […]

Sammy Swindell

Three-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car champion Sammy Swindell shocked the racing world when he announced his retirement this week. Our Ben Shelton wrote a great column on losing both Swindell and Steve Kinser to retirement as well as Shorty Chambliss to cancer all in the same year. You can see that here. Meanwhile, the […]

Modifieds at Marshalltown Speedway

Here’s some highlights of the feature event in the USMTS Modified Hunt for the Casey’s Cup at Marshalltown Speedway over the weekend. Rodney Sanders once again came away with the victory, but not after a hard-fought battle with Cade Dillard and a host of other racers intent on showing they are just as deserving to visit victory […]

Dirt Late Model Multi Car Wreck

Dale McDowell pocketed ten grand for his victory in Lucas Oil’s Scorcher event held last weekend at Volunteer Speedway in Bulls Gap, Tenn., mainly because he was able to avoid this multi-car pileup. It all starts out when Scott Bloomquist in the Zero has a problem in turn four while the field is still packed […]

Steve Kinser

Other than the occasional aches and creaks that we all start to attain as we get older, I think sometimes it’s easy for us to forget that each day we are indeed growing older.  For me, my usual reminder is the annual onslaught of high school graduation announcements that the month of April tends to […]

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 […]


The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series just announced that they will return to Golden Isles Speedway with the running of the Super Bowl of Racing to kick off the 2015 season.  The stars and cars of the LOLMDS are set to invade the 4/10 mile South Georgia speed-plant for two action packed nights of racing […]

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, […]
