Jeremy finally got his dirt track car up and running again. It almost looked like new. New tires, a few new parts and everything was ready to go in two weeks. Then, when he was ready to get on the track, he finished the hot laps, but when it came to the feature at Roaring Knob two weeks ago, it started raining. It rained too hard so the races had to be canceled for obvious safety reasons.
It's been raining off and on the dirt track lately. It doesn't rain all week but when race day comes, the dirt track seems to get the brunt of the weather.
Jeremy raced again the following week at Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio. The season is now over there. He started 23rd and finished 11th for an outstanding race for him. He passed some of the regular FASTRAK late model drivers. Drawing for a better position will really help him. It just hasn't happened yet, but it will.
He's working with his sponsors to try to get more money to take care of what needs to be done to make his car more competitive. Dirt track auto racing is expensive, especially when you get into the late model cars. If you are thinking of taking up dirt track racing, you will want to find out how much money is involved. If you can get enough money together to get on the track, that's great, but make sure you have enough to stay on the track. It's worth a try if you really want to get onto the dirt track. Just make sure you know what you are getting into for the long haul.
