Dirt Track Auto Racing - Facing the Unknown

Dirt Track Auto Racing - Facing the Unknown

I was going to tell you how fantastic my race went last week. . . but I can't. Actually, I was going to be racing twice and I wanted to tell you all about it. But instead, all I can report is RAIN!!! Yes, one thing you can't control is the weather. You wake up in the morning, ready for the dirt track auto racing challenge of your life and BAM, lightning, thunder, rain, slick muddy clay awaits. Two cancellations in one and a half weeks. Great start to the dirt track auto racing season, wouldn't you say.

Instead, I watched a bit of Nascar on TV with my feet up. I love to race though and would rather be on the track then watching it.

So, my dirt track auto racing tip for this week (Tip #5) is: Don't count on the weather to cooperate and call before you go to the track. (Tip #6) Pray for nice sunny days and evenings and dry tracks. Enjoy your two tips. . . see you soon.

Dirt Track Auto Racing Tip #4 - What About Dirt Track Rules?

Hope you had a great week. I will be dirt track auto racing tonight (if it doesn't rain) and I will let you know how it goes. I put a new dirt track video clip of one of my buddy's racing at night on a dirt track. If it looks a bit blurry, it's because it's night time and they are going around 120 mph! We'll do some daylight shots of dirt track auto racers as well so you can get an even better idea of what is going on.

What about dirt track auto racing rules? Racetracks and the different stock car associations work together to try to come up with a rule book that is general enough to cover lots of different race tracks. Although you should check for individual rules for your track (these are available when you register), for the most part, you can expect just about the same procedures no matter what track you visit. The rule books will outline specifically each race car class and that includes things like engine size, dimensions of the car, equipment requirements and a list of what you are not allowed to do. This is very helpful because it allows the racer to enter more races, increasing their chance of winning and adding to their points no matter where they race. It also allows the race track to allow the largest number of cars that they can. That gives the racing associations the chance to sponsor more events which in turn, makes new and old fans alike very happy.

Each fan has their own stock car preference. Both open wheel racers and stock cars have their good and bad points. We'll go more into the types of tracks the stock cars race on next time so see you back soon.

Dirt Track Auto Racing Tip #3 - What Class Do I Race In?

Dirt Track Auto Racing Tip #3 - What Class Do I Race In?

Did you know that dirt track auto racing has classes? Not the kind of classes you have to take in school, but classification classes. When you first start out in dirt track racing you will start in the "4 Cylinder Class" or "Pure Stock Car Class" which are the two entry level dirt track auto racing classes. To qualify for this class your car will most likely look like a normal street or stock car. There can be up to 15 classes that you can race in on a dirt track. The class levels are designed to make dirt track auto racing fair for all. So if you are a first timer, don't forget to bring enough money for a small entry fee and register in the 4 Cylinder Class.
