See you at the Hall


I have written here on two occasions about the National Dirt Late Model Hall of Fame regarding its importance to our sport and why we should all support it. Let’s make it an even three.

On Aug. 8 at Florence Speedway in Union, Ky., the Hall of Fame will induct its 15th class since being established in 2001. The NDLMHoF is housed in a modest building located just outside of turn four at the half-mile northern Kentucky oval that annually hosts the Sunoco North-South 100. | Complete North-South MORE

Shakespearean success

Jim DenHamer

“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”

Oh that Willie. He certainly had a way with words. It’s doubtful, however, that upon reflection of their recent accomplishments, neither Bobby Pierce nor Jonathan Davenport will conjure up any of William Shakespeare’s prose.

Spats then and now

Jason Shank

A couple days before the start of last weekend’s Firecracker 100 presented by GottaRace.com weekend at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., World of Outlaws Late Model Series traveler Boom Briggs of Bear Lake, Pa. — a quick-witted guy who’s always busting the chops of his buddies — stood in the pit area at Weedsport (N.Y.) Speedway and suggested that he wanted to do something special for his home-state track’s blockbuster event.

Briggs’s idea had nothing to do with his race car or his MORE

Divisional quandary

I always get a chuckle when one of my dirt racing colleagues regales me with the best feature race he ever witnessed.

When this trackside veteran first began to tell me one of his favorite racing memories, I expected a thrilling World 100, a last-lap pass at Hagerstown Speedway or perhaps a Florida Speedweeks race with Scott Bloomquist and Billy Moyer dueling in the final laps.

Instead, he waxed poetic about a 20-lap, three-car street stock race at a popular Tennessee track where the third-place MORE
