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

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 […]

One of the coolest things about my travels is getting to experience new tracks.  Not only do I love seeing new facilities, but it’s always fun and exciting to see how others tracks do things.  Sometimes what I find is really entertaining and great, while other times my inspections lead to disappointments.  Hey they can’t […]


Now you can accurately check ring gaps on even the thinnest, flimsy racing rings accurately because the tool keep the ring from flexing when you slide the feeler gauge in place.

If you have ever built your own racing engine, then you are familiar with the process of gapping your piston rings. When the engine heats up, a gap in each piston ring is required to keep it from expanding and damaging both the cylinder wall and the piston. When the ring gaps are properly sized […]

First, let me start off by saying that in writing this, I don’t mean to bash racers–young or old–who don’t pay for their own racing. I know that being a young racer means you likely aren’t able to pay our own way, and I also understand that there are older racers out there who, while […]


Kings Royal

Eldora Speedway’s Kings Royal is one of the biggest events each year for Sprint Car racers and their fans. This year the event ran over the weekend, and Australian Kerry Madsen added his name to the winner’s list for the first time thanks to a dominant performance behind the wheel. “I just want to thank […]


Carlos Jaramillo Pass

A couple weeks ago we visited the race shops of Kyle Strickler and High Side Race Cars and their new program building race cars for a select group of customers. While we were there, the crew was working to finish a car for customer Carlos Jaramillo. So it caught our attention when we found this clip […]


Schrader

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: We love it whenever an established driver is willing to step outside of his or her comfort zone to mix it up in a different type of car. NASCAR veteran Ken Schrader is more often seen behind the wheel of a Dirt Late Model or a […]
