The agony of defeat


Following Saturday’s Intercontinental Classic at Eldora Speedway, Scott James walked over to Kyle Strickler and tried to offer a few consoling words.

“I lost a hundred grand the same way. I know how it feels man,” said James as he gave the dejected Strickler, of Mooresville, N.C., a half hug and a pat on the back. | Complete Intercontinental coverage

Only James didn’t quite lose $100,000 the way Strickler lost $50,000 — with a deflating and then exploding right rear tire on the final lap MORE

Do-it yourself satisfaction


There are many creative people in dirt racing. That’s pretty obvious simply by looking at all of the technical advances that have been made in the last three decades.

Shenanigans old and new

Much has been made about Tyler Erb’s punishment for the on-track incident with Bobby Pierce during last week’s World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series-sanctioned USA Nationals at Cedar Lake Speedway.

Whether or not the 12-month suspension from World Racing Group events and $5,000 fine are too steep or not steep enough I guess depends on which camp you pop your tent in. I suspect he'll appeal and maybe get a reduction, but who knows. Regardless of how you see it, it could have MORE

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):

Best driver: Without question it’s Brandon Overton of Evans, Ga., who won half of the 12 events and never finished worse than fifth en route to his third career Schaeffer’s Southern Nationals championship. After transmission issues slowed him in the series opener — he still MORE
