Lunati Cams and Bushed LIfters

At the PRI trade show our Richard Holdener had an opportunity to speak with David Chamberlain of Lunati about the company’s custom cams for racing as well as Lunati’s new line of bushed solid roller lifters for racing. As racers demand ever more power, engine builders are obliging by pushing valvetrains to open faster, stay open […]

Driven Racing Oil

Many racers who labor over choosing exactly the right motor oil to use in their race engine are content to grab any “break in” oil available for their valuable engine’s first firing. Lake Speed Jr. of Driven Racing Oil explains that choosing the right break in oil is just as vital as finding the right motor […]

Crane Distributor

Crane Cams’ ignition division doesn’t attempt to provide something for everyone. Instead, they find places where they believe they can provide a higher performance piece than the stuff already on the market and design it to their specifications. That’s why Crane’s ignition products are all super high quality and widely trusted by many of the […]


Sitting on the couch in the living room of my house on a Friday night watching the Memphis Grizzlies win yet another game. I’m cuddled up under a blanket with my beautiful wife, Sheryl, who despite her best efforts to stay awake, ended her Grizzlies viewing party two quarters ago when she dozed into oblivion. […]

Dick will be one of six inductees who have influenced motorsports in Maine. He made his mark […]

Jones Racing Crate Engine Pulley Kit

The biggest hurdle when it comes to racing in any of the crate engine classes is making your entire setup work as efficiently as possible. After all, it only makes sense that if every car is running a limited horsepower engine, then the team that is able to make their engine work more efficiently than the […]


The Performance Racing Industry trade show wrapped up and we’ve got a ton of great information for you from the three-day event. Our video crew shot tons of great videos with the top manufacturers in the racing industry, but even their tireless efforts weren’t enough to capture all the good stuff we found. So we’ve […]

Sprint Car Wheelie

Here’s a video put together by the excellent cinematographers at Loudpedal Productions and shown at the recent USAC banquet. As always whenever Loudpedal is involved, the video is filled with stunning slow motion imagery. Definitely great work here and certainly worth a few minutes of any race fan’s time.   Post by Loudpedal Productions.

Comp Sportsman Lifters

Comp Cams has expanded it’s line of Sportsman solid roller lifters with new offseat options so that they will work with a wider range of cylinder head designs. The Sportsman line of lifters are a popular choice for dirt racers because they offer many of the same options as Comp’s top-of-the-line Elite lifters at a […]

Carolina Speedway

“We had a pretty good year in 2014 so we are investing everything we’ve got back into the track to make it better for our racers and fans.” That is music to our ears, and we bet you like hearing it too. That quote is from Clint Elkins, the Promoter for Carolina Speedway in Gastonia, […]

World of Outlaws Dirt Late Models

The good folks at the World of Outlaws put together this video as an end-of-season thank you to their fans–and fans of racing in general. It’s pretty good, so we thought we’d pass it along. Oh, and Merry Christmas!

Chili Bowl Racing Action

As construction of Tulsa Expo Raceway begins, the entry list for the 29th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire has swelled past the 200 mark with 206 entries confirming 194 drivers. Among the latest wave of drivers are half-dozen Golden Driller winners as four-time champion, Kevin Swindell, has entered along with […]

Brad Mueller is one of the rare drivers that's just as comfortable on dirt as he is asphalt. Jason Shultz photo.

Words: Dan Hodgdon In the motorsports world these days, at least at the short track level, it seems that a distinct line is drawn between dirt and asphalt. The phrases “asphalt’s for gettin’ there” and “dirt’s for farming” are bandied back and forth between the two sides like verbal grenades. Drivers like Jeff Purvis, who has […]

Scott Bloomquist's Dirt Late Model in Five Star's booth was a big draw. Notice the skirts around the tires to keep anyone from looking at the chassis. We have no idea if there was anything worth hiding under there, but it definitely got people talking.

The Performance Racing Industry trade show has just wrapped up, and we’re putting together a ton a great stories featuring the best new products from the show. In the meantime, we’ve got a great gallery of dirt race cars on display from the three-day event. Some are the rides of the stars, and at least […]


We all know dirt racing is a contact sport. You’ve got to take measures to protect the more sensitive components on your race car. If you are running a crank trigger, the sensor is made as tough as possible, but it is still stuffed with electronics. That’s why Crane Cams came up with this Crank […]

Here's a setup so that the engine builder can measure connecting rod bolt stretch in real time instead of the usual method of torquing the bolt and then measuring stretch (which can be too late).

ARP’s Chris Brown was the final presenter of the 2015 edition of the Advanced Engineering Technology Conference, and the information was definitely worth the wait. You may think there isn’t much to know about threading in a bolt, but the fact of the matter is most engine failures we’ve seen haven’t been from defective parts […]

Jimmy Owens

After several successful seasons driving for car owner Mike Reece, Owens has recently announced he will be moving to a new team as he competes for his fourth Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series championship. The announcement may be a bit surprising because last season was the first for his new team, Rowland Racing out of […]

Rodney Sanders

The Performance Racing Industry trade show doesn’t kick off until Thursday, but the manufacturers and exhibitors are already hard at work setting up. We’re also beginning to see some race cars come rolling in as displays and snapped a few shots while getting an early look at who is setting up where. We’ll have plenty […]

Memphis International RAceway

Since leaving my job as a civil engineer almost five years ago, I’ve been fully immersed in the racing world. From the day I embarked on racing as my full-time occupation, I have been completely devoted to making sure that I do anything and everything I can to keep my foothold in this business. Over […]


Mark Whitener put a wrap on the 2014 season on Saturday night, but not before completing the hat track with the United Dirt Late Model Challenge Series (UDLMCS) as he powered to his third-straight tour win in his Big Frog Motorsports #58. The United Dirt Late Model Challenge Series (UDLMCS) 2014 tour drew to a […]
