To keep up with all the happenings of the dirt track world, here at OneDirt we end up visiting a lot of sites to find the most up to date news to bring to you the reader. It hit us a couple of weeks ago, why don’t we start reviewing the sites that we visit the most often to provide a close look at how they benefit the average dirt track fan.
So to start our journey we decided to go with one of the more popular dirt track sites in America – DirtonDirt.com.
The Good: Dirt on Dirt meticulously covers dirt late model racing. Their coverage is absolutely amazing. Not only do they cover the national events like the World of Outlaws Late Model Series and the Lucas Oil Late Model Series, but they also make sure to keep up with the local track scene as well.
Their live video coverage of events is fantastic, and once a year they tackle the daunting UMP Summer Nationals (otherwise known as the hell tour) and provide up to the minute coverage from each event. Some might consider it a little pricy, but it affords you the option of being able to watch a big name event like the Firecracker 100 or the DIRTcar Nationals from the comfort of your home at almost the same price of what it costs to get a ticket.
The Bad: There isn’t much we can say negative about the site, the only critique we can offer up is the scope of the site is strictly dirt late model racing. So if you are a multidimensional dirt track fan then you will be a bit disappointed by the lack of sprint car, modified, and stock car coverage. Also they only cover events, so if you are looking for how to properly sipe your tires, you won’t find it there. (Editor’s Note: Hey! That’s what OneDirt is for!)
Overall grade: A+. If you are a fan of dirt late model racing, there is no better place to keep up with the happenings of the late model world then DirtonDirt. Michael Rigsby and the folks of the site have created a one-stop place for any avid dirt late model fan. Their video coverage is second to none, and even though it comes with a membership, the coverage is incredible and the team will always bust their butt at the track to provide you up to the minute coverage. There were many of times where we would be the last two media outlets left in the media center, where Rigsby and the DirtOnDirt team were at it uploading video, interviewing drivers, and providing the latest results to the early hours in the morning. They are extremely passionate and it shows in their work.
