A choice of rubber


Seeing the Southern All Star Dirt Racing Series open its rulebook to allow American Racer Tires — at least for the rest of this season — brought a smile to my face.

The May 8 announcement went relatively under the radar and really won’t affect a ton of drivers, but in the South, where the SAS tour — America’s longest-running Dirt Late Model series — had long been a Hoosier-only series, it’s a big deal. I wish they’d done it 30 years ago, but Southern All Stars founder B.J. Parker MORE

I'm no mechanic

I often say that I’m no mechanic. Working on race cars isn’t mechanic work. In fact, it’s far from it. I should specify that I mean Dirt Late Models. For people out there racing mini-stocks or true factory stocks or pure stocks, I don’t envy you because I suspect it’s actually a lot more work than running a Late Model.

Times have definitely changed in that it used to be mandatory for a race car driver to be a pretty good mechanic, too. Things aren’t that way anymore. I don’t know MORE

Spreading the wealth

I’ve used this space more than once to voice my opinion on purse structures, from Crate Late Model racing (which I still contend has gotten way out of control) to Limited Late Models and weekly Super Late Model racing. Most know I’m an advocate for the little guy, the racer who isn’t making a living doing this, but would still like to make enough money each time they race to be able to return the next weekend.

Typically that means just trying to make sure you don’t lose too much. That’s MORE

Say it ain't closed

I don’t know of anyone who hates to see a racetrack close more than I do. I’m sure there are a lot of racers and fans in my area of middle Tennessee feeling that exact same way this week, especially after getting the news that Boyd’s Speedway, the longest running track in the state of Georgia, will likely be closing its gates for good following the sale of the property to Brown Bros., a grading, excavating and utility company in East Ridge, Tenn.

Seeing a good racetrack close down sucks. MORE

A challenging weekend

It’s a bummer waiting for spring weather worthy of racing in Tennessee. I know it’s worse in up north, but with no apologies, I left Illinois more than 20 years ago, so I’m not so worried about it up there. Plus, most race promoters in the North are smart enough not to schedule races too soon. Weather like we’ve had here in Middle Tennessee over the last two weeks, however, can be a bit depressing.

If anything, it’s left me grasping for anything fun to write about. Watching a rollback MORE
