DTWC’s long, winding road

heathlawsonphotos.com

We’ve long danced around the exact requirements for an event to be labeled a crown jewel in the past, simply because it’s truly impossible to do. Sure, most of us know a crown jewel when we see one, but defining one is a different story.

While it’s certainly a subjective thing, there are some hard rules: longevity and purse being the primary two. Prestige, which really stems from the first two requirements, is the third necessity and I think just a sheer consistency is a fourth ingredient MORE

Mixed signals

As I headed to the Fastrak World Championship at Virginia Motor Speedway last month, I hadn’t gotten too far from home when I caught a truck pulling a trailer with one of its four tires flat. I’ve pulled a few trailers with flat tires and admittedly, it’s not always easy tell when you have a flat.

I’ve even completely lost a wheel on two separate occasions. The first time I realized it immediately because the truck I was driving was only a half-ton work truck, so when the wheel decided to MORE

Building community relations

Hearing the recent news that East Bay Raceway Park would likely close in 2024 was disheartening to say the least. The third-mile oval just outside of Tampa, Fla., has, after all, been a key part of Speedweeks since the late 1970s.

It’s long been on my personal list of top-five favorite tracks since the first time I attended a race there in 2001. I know plenty of other people, many who have been going to East Bay for far longer than me, feel the same. I feel much the same about the former Atomic MORE

South's crown jewel scarcity

Dan Fennell

We are smack in the middle of crown jewel season and that’s a wonderful thing if you have an opportunity to venture out to one of these high-paying, prestigious events. If you live in the South like I do, however, you may find that it’s a bit harder to get to a crown jewel, or at least if you do go to one, be prepared to cover a lot of mileage on your way. While crown jewels — or at least crown jewel hopefuls — seem to be popping up with great frequency, they’re still pretty scarce in MORE

Passing points anyone?

Thank you Jonathan Davenport. Thanks for setting the Twitterverse ablaze with ponderings of passing points. With 18 hours to kill while riding from Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wis., to Longhorn Chassis in Trinity, N.C., following his prelim crash in last weekend’s USA Nationals, J.D. took to Twitter to voice his disdain over the passing points format used in the $50,000-to-win World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series crown jewel event.

When using the passing points format, MORE
