Rossburg, Ohio is my Camelot, and Earl Baltes my King. :sunglasse

C'mon, this year was the first time I've missed the Brad Doty Classic since 1998. Regularly make the rounds at Attica Raceway Park and Fremont Speedway, with occasionals at Sharon and of course HAVE to make the trip out to Eldora whenever I can.

Bet you take in the modifieds at Weedsport, am I right? :wink:

Ahh, big ol' Syracuse. Good track for DIRT Modifieds. Especially the big block guys like Lou Blaney.

Usually dad and I would hit Weedsport for fun after making trips to Oswego to catch the Supers.

The DIRT cars are a lot of fun to catch up there. Wish they'd jouney out Ohio ways more often. We get TONS of sprint racing (which is perfect, since there's nothing finer on dirt than 410 sprints wailing into turn one) but beyond that it's usually (ugh) Dirt Late Models. ALMS, Xtreme Dirt Car, and now WoO Latemodels.

Ya sprintcars would be pretty fun to watch...closest to them would have to be sportman which I have watched but I do enjoy watching the limited/super lates goin around........but the class around my area closest to 358's would have to be the imcas.....looks like a superlate with the fender panels ripped off

Though I don't follow it particularly closely, IMO the WoO Sprint cars are the most difficult race cars to drive of any major series in the world. You have a comparable power to weight ratio of a Formula 1 car, with much more torque, a relatively high center of gravity, and you're driving on a changeable surface.

Went to my first dirt track race this weekend, BellClaire 1/5 of a mile in Bellville, IL. Midget and sprint cars. I was hesitant at first, but my girlfriend's best friend's boyfriend (thats a lot of friends) is the son of the track Chaplain, so he got us in for free. I gotta say, I had a blast, and those little cars fucking move. I had a great time, even though I'm still chewin on dirt...


I also got to meet and hang out with the Cheif of Scoring for the midwest section of the SCCA...that guy has seen some shit.

I've just been to my first dirt track, Albany-Saratoga Speedway in Malta, NY. Nice 1/4 mile track. I saw more bikes then cars though, I have to stay longer next time to see modifieds, maybe late models, but there's some crazy roundabouts to get back on the highway so, I fear leaving at night.

Dirt track racing is a type of auto racing performed on oval tracks. It began in the United States before World War I and became widespread during the 1920s and 30s. Two different types of racecars predominated—open wheel racers in the Northeast and West and stock cars in the South. While open wheel racecars are purpose-built racing vehicles, stock cars (also known as fendered cars) can be either purpose-built racecars or street vehicles that have been modified to varying degrees.
