Surveying the schedules

The 2021 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series schedule was released on Wednesday morning. Roughly six hours later the ’21 World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series schedule went public.

Both national tour slates coming out within hours of each other? Talk about an unprecedented day for Dirt Late Model racing.

After digesting the schedules, here’s some highlights and other nuggets that caught my attention:

DTWC heralds autumn

If Labor Day weekend is the unofficial end of summer, then the Dirt Track World Championship has long been the one event that has officially ushered in fall.

Only James didn’t quite lose $100,000 the way Strickler lost $50,000 — with a deflating and then exploding right rear tire on the final lap MORE

Do-it yourself satisfaction


There are many creative people in dirt racing. That’s pretty obvious simply by looking at all of the technical advances that have been made in the last three decades. If anything, it’s helped a generation of drivers who may not even be racing if they had to do more than check the air pressure in their tires or change oil every so often.

That’s, of course, a general statement and I know that most racers are somewhat skilled mechanics, especially those who've been at it for a while. Back in MORE
