Beginning with the 2015 racing season the IMCA will allow quick change rearends in the Xtreme Motor Sports Modifieds class.

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.

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.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Modified Drag Race

At first we thought we’d spotted a Dirt Modified race car making a run at the drag strip. But after close review we think it’s more likely that this is a drag car that has been rebodied to look like a Dirt Modified. Still, it is fun to watch it make a lap and lift […]

If he keeps this up they are going to have to start calling it the Donny Schatz Invitational. Schatz just scored his eighth win in the Knoxville Nationals in the last nine years and claimed the $150,000 winner’s purse. Behind him, Brian Brown placed runner-up for the third consecutive year. We got the race highlights […]

Night of 1000 Stars

Here’s a clip from the Night of 10,000 Stars event at Hancock County Speedway shot by our friends at Xsan. This isn’t the main event but one of the last heat races of the night to get into the feature. Still, it is one of the cleanest, hardest fought races we’ve seen in a while. […]
