They say nature abhors a vacuum. We missed that day in science class, but we do know we hate it when racers have nowhere to race. That’s why we were happy to hear that Chris Zuver, who founded the United Late Model Series, is bringing the organization back from the dead in response to the National […]

Street Stock Wreck

Here at OneDirt we’ve seen more wrecks–both in person and on video–than we can count. But we can honestly say we’ve never seen a complete rear end practically pop out of the back of a race car like this. Yes, we’ve seen a rear end torn from a race car, but that’s almost always been […]

Most tracks have sound systems that function perfectly well, so when you are trying to enjoy a race where you can't hear the announcer it makes it that much worse. (Rick Schwallie photo)

Sitting there anxiously in the grandstands on a beautiful evening at a race track that you’ve never before attended, your month of eager anticipation for watching this special event is finally about to reach its peak. You can see dozens of haulers jammed into the pit area as you feel your excitement continuing to build.  […]


We love this photo sent to us by Horsepower Nation member Scott McNulty. It features Late Model driver Travis Mease while running at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. Lucky Shot Photography caught the perfect moment after Mease caught a rut and is working to bring the car back down off of two wheels. We […]

Modified Racing Bumper Cars

For this edition of “You Be the Judge” we’ve got a very interesting clip from our friends at The Dirt Racing Connection. This race was shot at Florence Speedway. Racing between turns three and four the yellow and red K12 pushes and runs another car into the wall. The energy from that hit pushes the […]


The excitement is ratcheting up for the fast approaching 19th Annual Casey’s General Stores/Musco Lighting Front Row Challenge presented by Don Long’s Searsboro Telephone Company.  The event will be held Monday, August 4, at the Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa, Iowa. Some of the best drivers in the country are expected to battle for one of the most […]

Street Stock Flip

Dirt Race Central brings us this clip shot at Ogilvie Raceway in Minnesota. Evan Neumann in the black 19 suffers the misfortune of clipping another racer’s wheel which leads to a little upside-down time.

Seals It Nerf Bar Collar

Racing on dirt is great–cleaning dirt out of all the nooks and crannies of your race cars isn’t. That’s why we love the idea of Seals-it’s new Nerf-Bar Collar. The collar helps seal  the gap where the nerf bar on your car passes through sheetmetal using a large rubber disc with a 1 1/2-inch hole […]

Eldora Truck Race

We won’t pretend that the NASCAR Camp World Truck Series trucks are as dynamic on the dirt track as an honest-to-gosh Late Model (or practically any other real dirt race car), but when NASCAR makes its return to Eldora in just the second time in forever, it’s news. It also wasn’t half bad racing, all […]

Rodney Sanders

Rodney Sanders is enjoying a dream season in his #20 Swan Energy/MB Customs/Geddes Racing Engine Open Wheel Modified, and things elevated to a whole new level over the weekend as he claimed the $20,000 top prize in the 4th Annual World Modified Dirt Track Championship (WMDTC). Rodney Sanders opened the mega event on Thursday evening […]


Mike Dehoogh is the man behind Black Flag Race Photos and is the track photographer over at Marysville Raceway Park in Marysville, CA. Mike recently sent us some of his selects and we thought we’d share some of his great work with you.

Late Model Flip

We want to thank J.D. Olsen, a member of OneDirt Nation, who gave us the heads up on this clip. J.D. says this action comes from Gallatin Speedway in Montanna. Gallatin is a 3/8-mile speedway and track management has made the wise decision to eliminate walls wherever they can in place of softer dirt banks. […]


We’ve got more good news for hobby-level racers looking to cash in on a big money race. This time the officials at WISSOTA have announced that all racing divisions will receive an increase in their respective purse structure at the 2014 Speedway Motors WISSOTA 100. Some classes will see an increase in the amount the […]

Crane Billet Cam

Good news for any engine builders or racers running the larger small blocks with 4.500-inch bore spacing (or who have some other unusual valve train combination that makes it difficult to get cams made to your specs): Crane Cams has announced that they are now offering tool steel camshafts custom made to match any engine configuration. […]


Eibach says that they are looking for top racers (that’s you) from all across the country to join their team. Eibach will be awarding multiple sponsorships for the 2015 racing season, and they are giving racers a chance to apply. The suspension specialists says that they will post the winning sponsorships on their website and in […]

Classic Pure Street

Sometimes there’s nothing more fun that watching a little old-school dirt track racing. This particular clip is racing action featuring the Modified Street class running at Smoky Mountain Speedway in Maryville, TN, and shot by Speedway Videos. The wayback machine has us going all the way back to 2003–and it is pretty neat to watch […]

Trucks at Eldora

NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series returns to Eldora tonight in the only event of the year on dirt. Last year’s Mudsummer Classic was widely regarded by the normally asphalt-only NASCAR crowd as one of the best races of the season. Seasoned dirt racers will know that there are much better forms of dirt track racing […]

World Modified Dirt Track Championship

Yesterday we brought you details of the IMCA sanctioned World Nationals races coming up in September because it is an opportunity for the “hobby level” racers for a chance to earn the big bucks. So we also wanted to let you know about the USRA and the USMTS working together to sanction the World Modified […]

Green Demon Sprint Car

Two-time USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series champion Damion Gardner of Concord, California will return to Utah’s famous Bonneville Salt Flats next month in his quest to become the first driver to eclipse the 200-MPH barrier in a sprint car. Gardner and his team’s first attempt to conquer Bonneville came last August.  Two times he reached speeds in […]

World Nationals

Usually when you hear about big-money races, it is almost always for the Late Models or Sprint Cars. Occasionally, the Big Block Modified also get a chance at the big bucks too. But when we heard that a full $100,000 will be given away as the purse in the eighth annual World Nationals this September […]
