Dirt Track Racing - Pitfalls

Dirt Track Racing - Pitfalls

We're at the dirt track. Fourth lap, in the lead, all was going well. Then the yellow flag. Several more laps. Yellow flag. Then it happened. The car overheated. I was driving my dad's car this time (I just traded my 2003 roller for another so it isn't ready yet). Couldn't finish. Another Sunday night bites the dust. This year just isn't going well so far. Between the rain and happenings on the track, it seems like things will never get better.

But, you know what? They will get better. These are just a few of the pitfalls that happen in dirt track auto racing. You can't control everything, so you have to go with the flow. It's still fun. It still gives you motivation to get back out there and try again. So get that modified car and get busy on the dirt track. It's worth the bad days too.

Dirt Track Auto Racing - My Car Bites the Dust

[Dirt Track Auto Racing] My Car Bites the Dust

So, you want to [dirt track auto race]? Be prepared. Anything can happen. It finally stopped raining long enough for me to race at Latrobe Speedway a week and a half ago (sorry but I've been lying by the pool and in the ocean in Playa Del Carmen Mexico for the last week so I haven't had time to write :) Third round. I was in third place and on my way to second when my engine blew. My dad got second so at least the whole night wasn't a total loss. The moral of the story is that if you want to race on a dirt track, be prepared not only for weather, but for your car to blow up for no particular reason at all. The second moral is, go to Mexico and the Riveria Maya all inclusive, site on the beach and down a few cold ones so you can forget that your engine blew. It worked for me! I'll be back to fill you in on what actually happened as soon as I get my land legs back again and my head out of the sand. All of that crystal clear blue and green water just does something to your mind! Thanks for listening. Regards. Jeremy. [Dirt Track Auto Racing]
