Weaver pays it forward


Randy Weaver didn’t have to retire from driving a Dirt Late Model last month. At 47, and not long removed from a 2015 season that was arguably the best of his career, he knew he could still get the job done once he completely recovered from the post-concussion syndrome that began to plague him one month after he rode out a wild, flipping wreck in the April 2 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event at East Alabama Motor Speedway in Phenix City.

But even though doctors have told Weaver he’s MORE

Junior's worthy ascension

The most consequential season of Billy Moyer Jr.’s Dirt Late Model career — a campaign that has seen him not only emerge as the 2016 World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series Rookie of the Year but also become a feature winner on the national tour — has thrust him into a position he’s been striving to reach since he began circling dirt tracks a decade ago.

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

Hell Tour perfect attendance


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

Oh, and three dogs, too.

That’s the composition of a select group: those who could claim perfect attendance on the 2014 UMP DIRTcar Summernationals, the aptly-named Hell Tour for its grueling schedule of Dirt Late Model action lasting just over month.

These are the people (and the trio of animals) that completed the full Summernationals points-race grind, which began on June 16 at Kankakee (Ill.) County Speedway (after MORE
