Racing safety reminder

Racer safety has always been one of my highest priorities that I take very seriously. It’s always on my mind at races, and I feel it’s as much my responsibility as it is the racers themselves.

For the longest, I have been a proponent of a cheaper form of racing. I’ve considered Crate racing and I’ve urged promoters to come up with a true economy engine for Late Models.

I’m happy to say that I received a lot of feedback from both of those blogs, both through this website and from folks at my local tracks. It’s always nice to get feedback from people you see every weekend, yet never realized they were DirtonDirt subscribers who followed along with my sometimes senseless babble. MORE
