Dream XXV by the numbers

heathlawsonphotos.com

ROSSBURG, Ohio — While reflecting on Dream XXV at historic Eldora Speedway, I decided to take a by-the-numbers look at what will surely be thought an instant classic, with a few random numbers tossed in about my trip from Tennessee to Ohio for the first crown jewel race of the season (complete Dream coverage):

0.056: Seconds in finishing margin between Dream winner Brandon Sheppard and runner-up Dale McDowell.

Promoters must step up

Haley Thomas

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The last time I attended a race at Nashville's fairgrounds oval before Saturday was 1995 when I went up to watch the All-American 400. Ironically it was Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer Jeff Purvis of nearby Clarksville, Tenn. — one of my all-time favorites — who won the race, becoming the first driver to win the event three times.

Even though I’m not a big fan of asphalt racing, I always liked going to the fairgrounds track when I was a kid. I saw the Allisons race there, MORE

Calendar connections

Robert Holman

While remembering late GRT co-founder Joe Garrison last week, my first thought went back to 1993 when I made a trip to Greenbrier, Ark., to take pictures of Bill Frye’s GRT Race Car for a calendar project I was working on. I immediately began to dig through my old pics, looking for the images I made that summer and while I did, the memories, while a little fuzzy, came flooding back.

Some 26 years ago, I decided to print a Dirt Late Model calendar on whim. You know how random ideas sometimes MORE

Feel-good victory

Robert Holman

I love waking up Sunday morning, checking Facebook and finding a post that makes me smile. That was the case when I saw that Cole Smartt won Saturday’s Limited Late Model feature at Talladega Short Track in Eastaboga, Ala.

Everyone has that group at the racetrack they feel comfortable around. Almost everywhere you go, there’s that certain trailer, or trailers, where you can just walk into and sit for a spell. You can hang out a bit, catching up on things, often things that have nothing to do MORE

Adventures in midweek racing

Robert Holman

With Mother Nature hampering weekend activity, North Alabama Speedway decided to host a Tuesday night race this week. Following yet another rainout, officials at the track near Tuscumbia put out feelers on Facebook over the weekend. After a positive response they opened the gates Tuesday to host action in five weekly divisions.

They had a total of 68 cars in the pit area, with Chase Walls of Winchester, Tenn., outrunning Dustin Harris, Ben Brocato and 14 other Crate Late Models to pick up the win MORE
