Eldora Speedway is a lot of things to a lot of people. Regardless of how many trips you’ve made to the famed half-mile oval in Rossburg, Ohio, you undoubtedly remember the first one. It’s crazy how we remember such pivotal moments in life.

No, at first I thought, what about the DIRTcar Summer Nationals? After all, Pierce was a Summer Nationals MORE

Hell Tour perfect attendance

Twenty-four races. Twenty-three tracks. Six states. Thirty-two days.

The 2018 DIRTcar Summer Nationals was another long, grueling odyssey, a test of dedication and willpower that only a select number of diehards manage to make it through from start to finish. This year that group totaled 17 people, down significantly from the 31 who completed the Hell Tour’s 25 events in ’17. | Slideshow | Complete Summer Nationals coverage
