Southern Nationals superlatives

Brian McLeod/Dirt Scenes

TAZEWELL, Tenn. — Recapping the 16th annual Schaeffer’s Southern Nationals with a list of superlatives from the 12 events contested in four states over 16 days from July 10-25 (complete Southern Nationals coverage):

Racing, barbecue and career choices

Robert Holman

I’d just picked up a Boston butt and some ribs that my brother cooked overnight July 3 and was in the middle of making homemade baked beans and slaw when I thought to myself that it seems like I’ve been doing the same thing for more than 30 years now.

My parents owned a barbecue restaurant for almost 20 years, so the barbecue stuff on the Fourth of July is a tradition no doubt. For about 12 years or so, it was a job that I couldn’t escape. The Independence Day holiday was easily our busiest MORE

Two of the events I attended weren’t for work, but rather so my brother and I could do a bit of racing ourselves. We took our Crate Late Model, which my brother drives, to Southern Raceway in Milton, Fla., on May 2 MORE

West Plains reminiscing

Robert Holman/DirtonDirt.com

Most people who loved West Plains Motor Speedway — typically older folks like myself — aren’t shy in hiding there passion for the famed 3/8-mile oval in southern Missouri. Home of the original Show-Me 100, and now called Legit Speedway Park, Gary Stolba’s track on the edge of nowhere was made famous by one of Late Model racing’s most prestigious events. For 17 years, former track owners Don and Billie Gibson hosted the Show-Me 100, a Memorial Day tradition that, for diehards at least, MORE
