Racing that never ends

After more than two years away, my brother and I finally got back to the racetrack as competitors (for lack of a better word) at the end of 2019. We squeezed in four races from Nov. 24 to the end of the year.

It's great to get some late-season laps in — surely there are other racers who benefit from a chance to race as winter approaches — but I'll admit that I’m not a big fan of such a lengthy racing season when I’m behind the keyboard.

DTWC’s long, winding road


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
