Here at OneDirt, we unofficially kicked off the 2015 racing season with a visit to USA Raceway in Tucson, Arizona for the Wild West Shootout. Promoter Chris Kearns has done a wonderful job with this dirt track in the desert, and the Shootout drew a large crowd of competitors in all three classes: Late Model, […]


The title of this piece clearly sounds more like something you would read around the holidays. However, this article isn’t about the holidays one single bit. Rather it is dedicated to my favorite season on the calendar … the racing season. With 2015 already punching us square in the nose with dirt racing events contested […]

Chili Bowl Crashes

Driver Rico Abreu had a great weekend at the Chili Bowl claiming his first victory. (If you would like the details, you can read our race report here.) But Abreu didn’t provide all the action to be found on the track. Unfortunately, these drivers wound up on the other end of the spectrum–if not upside […]

Rico Abreu Chili Bowl Champion

Saturday night at the Chili Bowl was one for the record books, as California’s Rico Abreu raced to his first triumph in the finale of the 29th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Midget Nationals presented by General Tire, delivering car owner, Keith Kunz, his first Golden Driller since 2002. “I just tried to stay as […]

The famous number 77 car that was driven by Hall of Famers Larry Moore, Chuck McWilliams, and Rodney Combs.

By Bill Holder Photos by Bobby Markos Give this question a little thought before you answer it. What type of top-gun race vehicle has the greatest numbers at the national level, and which receives the greatest national TV coverage? Is it Sprint Cars, Midgets, Pavement Late Models, Big Nlock Modifieds? No, No, No, and No! […]

Ross Tingle

Recently we brought you Ben Shelton’s excellent sit down interview with Magnolia Motor Speedway owner and promoter Johnny Stokes. (If you haven’t seen that one yet, you can check it out here.) But we didn’t simply stop there on our visit to the 3/8-mile speedway just outside Columbus, Mississippi. Shelton also got the chance to […]

Midget Racing

The Chili Bowl Nationals are underway! The feature, of course, doesn’t take place until Saturday night, but we’ve already had a night of practice and qualifying. To help get you excited for the weekend, we’ve posted this cool video of the sights and sounds from Chili Bowl practice that Ross Wece put together–including some candid shots […]

Strange Axles

Did you know that you can use the axles in the rear end to tune how your car handles? Strange Oval offers rear axles in different diameters to help you control axle wrap in offset rear ends. They say that by changing the rate of axle wrap you can actually mimic changes in stagger. See […]


We can’t believe that racing season has already begun, and to prove it we’re posting some of the first race results for the brand-new and still shiny 2015 racing season. Tony Jackson Jr. has already chalked up his first win of the season along with a $5,000 pay day in his #56 Super Late Model in […]

This will be the series’ second trip to the famed dirt track just north […]


Pay the money and they will come. This is a theory that many racers and fans believe to be true. The more money that a track pays for an event, then the more cars and fans that will participate. This has to be true, right? Well, the reality is that in many cases it’s not. […]

Total Seal’s Newest Rings Innovate with Top-Tier Race Technology for Real-World Prices   Dirt track racers and fans often enjoy a little harmless griping about the big-league asphalt racers that show up Sundays on TV. “Sure,” we’ll say, “it’s easy to look good when you have all that money to spend.” Or, “What do you […]

Bell Racing Helmets

Bell Racing is one of the most trusted brands when it comes to helmets and safety gear. We stopped by their booth at the PRI show and they showed us two new helmets we’re sure you’d want to see. The first is Bell’s new Sport Edge helmet. This lid is designed for entry level racers […]

Sprint Car Flip and Save

We just found this clip, so we’re calling this the save of the year from 2014. Does anyone know who this is or where it was shot? Regardless, this save might fall more into the “luck” category than actual driver skill, but it is still pretty cool! Hope he or she was able to keep […]

Jiffy Tite

In racing, practicality always takes a back seat to performance. Header tube location makes it difficult to change plugs when the engine is hot without burning your hands? Tough. You get the idea. Jiffy-tite caters to racers and definitely understands that way of thinking. That’s why they’ve come up with their Pro-Compact series of quick disconnect […]
