Much was made about Tim McCreadie’s tow truck and trailer following his World 100 victory at Eldora Speedway back in October. For anyone unaware — and I’d say you’re in the minority — McCreadie won his first crown jewel event at the famed Rossburg, Ohio, oval after getting there in a dually pickup and a modest enclosed trailer, the same rig he’d used for about half the season after struggling to find a truck driver with a valid Commercial Drivers License (CDL) to handle the chore of MORE

As the tire specialist for Lance Landers’s powerhouse Double L Racing operation, Tyler Breashears is one of the hard-working but largely anonymous crew members that make the Dirt Late Model world go round.

Indeed, Breashears, 26, of Lonoke, Ark., is a high-level duck caller. Check the MORE
Dirt Late Model racing rarely sees an outcome like the one that occurred in Sept. 29's inaugural Keystone Cup at Bedford (Pa.) Speedway. Arguing otherwise isn’t even making conversation.
A modest, family-owned team that races exclusively at one track — and, what’s more, made a mere 11 starts in 2018 — winning a race boasting a whopping $15,000 first-place payoff? Nah, it just doesn’t happen. That’s too fairy tale of a story in the division’s modern era.

What an effort by Bobby Pierce, digging lap after lap on the MORE
