DirtNews Digest revisited

There was no master plan. No business model. No publication schedule. There was nothing except a decision, on a whim, to launch an online news source for Dirt Late Model racing.

It was 25 years ago this week that I produced the first emailed report for DirtNews Digest, which began my motorsports journalism career and helped guide me, for better or worse, to where I am now.

And 24 years and 51 weeks ago, I clearly remember thinking: What in the world have I gotten myself into?

Brian McLeod/Dirt Scenes

Wil Herrington, Joshua Bishop, Kyle Bronson and Donald McIntosh have all most likely crossed paths before. After all, the three Dirt Late Model drivers are all Southerners, with three hailing from Georgia and one from Florida.

It seems race car drivers are notoriously ill-prepared. It’s not that all racers show up at the track not ready to race. But a lot of times teams work endlessly in the shop to become more prepared when all they really need to do is go race. And occasionally that diligence at the shop makes them tardy for an event.

Yet it's that meticulous behavior — the desire to dot every i and cross each t — that leads to success on the track. Drivers miss dinners at home and spend late nights in the shop MORE

South Africa racing trip

Tygerberg Raceway

Before the coronavirus pandemic struck the United States, before the crisis effectively shut down motorsports across the country for an indefinite period of time, Dirt Late Model standout Michael Page enjoyed an overseas trip of a lifetime.

In late February, the 37-year-old Douglasville, Ga., racer jetted off with his brother and two friends to drive a Dirt Late Model in South Africa, providing him an utterly positive memory of 2020 no matter what the future holds for racing this season.
