They will be adding new products and so will we hopefully in the first part of next year. We need to raise money to get Jeremy back on track so we are going to be trying different ways to do that. We are researching to find unique dirt track items to sell and, at the same time, we want to have these organizations benefit by donating part of the proceeds to St. Jude's Hospital and to the Cystic Fibrosis Organizations. Jeremy and his family are heavily involved in Cystic Fibrosis due to one of their 11 year old family members dying from that terrible disease.

Because of an on-going investigation, I won't name names, but one of Jeremy's family members was injured as a result of a driver gone wild. Jeremy was observing and was to drive the feature when a little bump turned into a major nightmare for the referee who was lining up the cars for the next event. He was in the wrong place at the wrong time as one of the drivers who got angry because he got bumped decided to go out of his spin and drive directly into the oncoming dirt track racers. His intentional revengeful move badly injured the referee who was an innocent bystander, and injured Jeremy's uncle and demolished the front of his modified car they had worked so hard on to build. You can read more about the details of the story by clicking the link.
It's a sad day when someone becomes so competitive that they lose sight of what the race is all about. Dirt track auto racing is supposed to be fun for the whole family, and it is. It is a very safe sport and in spite of the fact that there can be some hot heads in the field, as long as you as a future driver realize that, you will have a heads up that something like this just might happen. Jeremy and his family have never seen anything like this in all the years they have been racing. Let's hope it doesn't happen again.

The new decals are in and they are looking pretty sharp. The car is beginning to take shape both inside and out and soon we will have some new pictures for you. Jeremy is still trying to raise funds from sponsors so he can get the best engine put in.
Jeremy can drive. He has proven that by winning numerous races in PA and MD, and he intends to win again. It's just taking a bit longer than he had hoped. Buying a house at his young age was a big responsibility, getting married and having two children to raise can put a damper on funds. That's why if you are going to dirt track race, you need to have a good funding source so you can continue on when your lifestyle changes from single and living in a garage to married and living with your family! That's not a bad thing, but for a dirt track racer with dirt in his blood, things just can't move along fast enough.

Getting the dirt track racing car ready is hard work. It requires both time and money. Parts are very expensive and when you are an every day working man, you have to do what you can when you can with what you've got.
My point is, if you have a dream, even if you don't have all of the money that you need, don't give up that dream. Maybe a sponsor or two will come along. Maybe you will win the lottery. Maybe, over time, just by doing one little thing after another, you will be successful because you didn't give up. You took bits of extra money and bits of extra time and each time you added something to your car, you were one more step closer to the finish line.
I encourage all of you who have the dream to start out as a dirt track auto racer to not give up. Get your first car, work on it when you can, put money into when you can and when it is all finished you will be proud that you did not give up. You may even find yourself on the dirt track much faster then you ever thought.

More dirt track auto racing topics in the next blog. . . I was just too excited about this one to wait. You really can't use any of these to dirt track race (unless you are a millionaire who wants to modify one for the dirt track), but you can buy one with your dirt track racing winnings.
Two of Jeremy's friends (who already have their cars built and racing) have won over $80,000 already this year in their late model races. It does cost money to get to the point where you have a winning car, but it can be done.

The fact of the matter is that dirt track auto racing is very expensive. Jeremy has the car shell, the tires and the basics, but now he needs to get an engine. The car shell itself was just under $10,000 and he is getting it ready to house the engine. He still needs to raise more money to be able to buy the engine that he really wants so he can win a few races. I'll have pictures of what he is working on soon on the blog.
The dirt track auto racing season is a fun one for the whole family so go to google, type in dirt track auto racing tracks (and the name of your city and/or state) and get a schedule so you can have some family fun watching the racers get down and dirty.
