Title sponsor's appreciation

Brendan Capria

For this year’s full-time World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series teams, the Aug. 13 program at Winchester (Va.) Speedway was like Christmas morning.

Santa Claus visited the the 3/8-mile oval in the form of a box truck that pulled into the pit area during the afternoon. Large boxes on pallets were unloaded and delivered to each of the 14 full-time WoO teams on hand (season-long regular Chase Junghans of Manhattan, Kan., would have made 15 but he skipped the four-race Mid-Atlantic swing) MORE

A fresh mindset

About two months ago, we broke a motor, which will likely keep us sidelined the rest of the season. At best, we could be back on track in late fall with another Limited Late Model motor in place and run a few shows here and there.

Of course that depends on how much can be salvaged from the broken engine. The most likely scenario will be getting a crate engine for the start of the 2017 season and keeping an all-steel engine on reserve to run a few higher paying races now and then. My fear is that MORE

Ten team members. Four drivers. Four officials. Two media types. One vendor.

Oh, and three dogs, too.

Analysis of a phenom

heathlawsonphotos.com

I don’t like to use the word phenom very much when describing racers. Obviously short for phenomenal, the term phenom is typically reserved for a young talent who you know will be a superstar. The tag is mostly used to describe stick-and-ball athletes. After watching Sunday’s UMP DIRTcar Summernationals race at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind., I feel compelled to call race winner Bobby Pierce a racing phenom.

I realize Pierce, even at the tender age of 19, already has several years of MORE

Finding balance in prosperity

dt52photos.com

Prosperity can be a strange bird. Strange indeed.

Often, many of us don’t even realize we are enjoying prosperity when we’re in the moment. All too often, we take things for granted and then wonder what’s wrong when things change, never stopping to think that perhaps the anomaly isn’t the now, but instead the past.

For instance. Suppose we get used to seeing 20 Late Models at our local track every Saturday night for four or five consecutive years. Then, slowly, we get down to just 10 on a MORE
