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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


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. […]


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 […]


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.

The racing won’t start until Thursday, but we’ve got a great lineup of features ready […]

There has been a ton of action going on at Boone Speedway for the IMCA Super Nationals. Here’s a clip of an unfortunate wreck in Thursday night’s Modified Feature A2. These drivers were trying to race their way into the Super Nationals feature and got caught up in this wreck off turn four. But what […]


eldoraspeedway

I get asked all the time by racers and race fans if I get nervous when I’m getting ready to announce a big race.  Up until a few years ago my answer was most definitely, “Yes.” However, like anything, the more that you do something the more comfortable and confident that you get, and the […]


Stock Cars

The IMCA Super Nationals are going on right now at Boone Speedway, and some great video has started showing up. Here’s a clip from the in-car camera of Stock Car racer Chris Pruitt from a qualifying race to get into the A-main. Pruitt is battling for the transfer position and we benefit from some great […]


World 100 Heat Races

The biggest Dirt Late Model race of the year went off last weekend when Eldora Speedway dropped the green flag on the World 100. And it was filled with great racing from start to finish. We will be following up with a post on the feature race won in dominant fashion by Scott Bloomquist, but […]


Saturday-champions

Modified racer Kyle Strickler had quite a whirlwind weekend. After leading all forty laps of the feature race, it may look like Strickler just breezed through on the surface, but the driver from Mooresville, NC, actually faced quite a bit of adversity on his way to his first win in IMCA Modified racing’s biggest race. […]


IMCA Super Nationals Wreck

With Xsan covering the IMCA Super Nationals at Boone Speedway live, we knew it was only a matter of time before video highlights of Saturday night’s big wreck hit the old interwebs. And now we have it. This is from Saturday night’s action. Things got hairy quick when racer Todd Shute got into the wall right […]


Scott Bloomquist World 100 Highlights

For a while there is looked like Scott Bloomquist didn’t stand a chance at claiming his fourth World 100 title and the forty-seven grand paycheck that comes with it–at least not after he was sent to the back of the field for, of all things, an unapproved window net 20 laps into the race. By that […]
