Trip’s tale of the tape

A by-the-numbers snapshot of my July 13-20 road trip that included events with the DIRTcar Summer Nationals and the Schaeffer’s Southern Nationals, including a number of useless facts and the occasional poke at Georgia’s Ashton Winger, who not only found victory lane on multiple occasions, but also had a knack for making me laugh:

1: Victory by a Hall of Famer, Chickamauga, Ga.’s Dale McDowell, who won Tuesday’s Schaeffer’s Southern Nationals main event at I-75 Raceway in Sweetwater, MORE

Slow down and enjoy it

Ashton Winger has had plenty of chances to cut bait and head home from this year’s DIRTcar Summer Nationals. He’s crashed cars. He’s been upside-down — during time trials no less — and he’s missed a few golden opportunities to record much better finishes than the end results have shown.

But the Hampton, Ga., driver has kept on digging. And Tuesday at Knox County Fair Raceway, Winger’s fortunes finally turned for the better as he topped series points leader Bobby Pierce to win his MORE

First-time track visits

One of the coolest things about traveling the country covering Dirt Late Model racing is getting the opportunity to visit new tracks. There are definitely favorites that I always look forward to returning to — and, of course, a few that I’d rather not see again — but discovering new ones is pretty awesome.

It’s not a surprise that I’ve been to more tracks in my home state of Tennessee than I have anywhere else. I’m not sure which one I actually went to first, either Duck River Raceway MORE

Crown jewel potential

Regardless of what your definition of a crown jewel Dirt Late Model event is, one thing is certain: there isn’t one in the South.

Below the Mason-Dixon Line? Perhaps, but even the two bona fide crown jewels that do exist below that imaginary line that separates Maryland and Pennsylvania — the Topless 100 in Batesville, Ark., and the aptly-named North-South 100 at Kentucky’s Florence Speedway — are about as far from the true South as you can get.

Alas, long-suffering race fans in the South MORE

Reminiscing about racing

Any time a bunch of old racing buddies gather in one spot for too long, there’s bound to be a certain amount of reminiscing. As old stories are retold, these tales often grow taller, sometimes even beyond belief.

I’m no different than anyone else when it comes to “shootin’ the gip” as Run-D.M.C. used to say. I like to rehash the old stories, relive the glory as it were — or as I can remember it — because those were some good times.

My wife is way beyond listening to these stories MORE
