Passing points anyone?

Thank you Jonathan Davenport. Thanks for setting the Twitterverse ablaze with ponderings of passing points. With 18 hours to kill while riding from Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wis., to Longhorn Chassis in Trinity, N.C., following his prelim crash in last weekend’s USA Nationals, J.D. took to Twitter to voice his disdain over the passing points format used in the $50,000-to-win World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series crown jewel event.

When using the passing points format, MORE

Lesson in perseverance

Robert Holman/DirtonDirt.com

Tanner English is smack in the middle of a tough lesson of perseverance. The 26-year-old Benton, Ky., native’s first foray with the Schaeffer’s Southern Nationals has been up and down at best. But English and his Big Frog Motorsports team have stuck it out and entering the final three races of the tour are currently in fourth place in series points.

It’s been a test of patience for sure for English, much like his season as a whole. He was supposed to have a career opportunity this season MORE

Hell Tour perfect attendance

Thanks to a rash of rainouts, the 2019 Hell Tour wasn’t quite as hellish as usual in 2019. But while the loss of several events to weather reduced the length of the DIRT Summer Nationals — 18 points races at 17 tracks in four states were completed over 32 days — and the longest continuous stretch of racing was a modest five nights in a row, attending every show was still a test of dedication and willpower. | Slideshow | Complete Summer Nationals coverage

Weary on the Fourth of July

The week of the Fourth of July was arguably the busiest race week of the season and after what seemed like a bazillion races, frankly, I was glad it was behind us. I was, however, glad that we managed to get through the week largely unaffected by Mother Nature. It’s about time.

As I began to doze off to sleep early Sunday morning to the sound of raindrops pelting the aluminum roof on my house, the first thought I had — or maybe the last thought depending on how you look at it — was that MORE

No doubt: Rainouts suck

Rainouts suck. There I said it. Fans suffer, promoters suffer and drivers suffer.

Unfortunately, there’s been plenty of rain to go around this season. After attending 15 DIRTcar Summer Nationals races over the last two seasons with only one rainout, I thought for sure I’d be able to buck the trend this year and once again zip through a week unscathed. Boy was I wrong. I had four rainouts in seven races during my scheduled run from Jacksonville (Ill.) Speedway on June 18 through Clarksville MORE
