Bryan Clauson, winning dirt-track driver who died just last night, planned to run 200 races this year. Two hundred. When I first heard that number I didn’t wonder why he wanted to, I wondered, how could he?

Your elementary school self was right: playing in the dirt is a lot of fun. And thus, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series kicks up big clouds of soil at Eldora Speedway again, tonight at 9:00 p.m. ET. on FS1. In the meantime, behold the dusty post-apocalyptic truck-scape of yesterday at Eldora.
For the first time ever at Perris Auto Speedway, a race car flipped up and over its catch fence. Austin Williams’ sprint car slid sideways into a bump that sent him spinning over 22 feet in the air. Miraculously, the driver was okay and able to get out of the car under his own power.
This is NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. competing in a dirt track race in Du Quoin, Illinois. He made a charge from the back of the pack to take the win, sometimes even with half his car on the catch fence.
Rubbin’ is racing, but this shows how far things can go over the line.
The Chili Bowl Nationals coming up in Tulsa, Oklahoma takes a massive field of huge-horsepower midget cars and sticks them on a tiny track indoors. To call it a contact sport would be an understatement. So why race your own car there?

Over the weekend, the Bankers Life Fieldhouse was turned from a basketball arena into an indoor Dirt Midget and Outlaw Kart track for the Bad Boy Indy Invitational. How did it happen? With lots and lots of dirt, of course.
Stewart Friesen stepped onto the winner’s podium at the New York State Fairgrounds last Sunday, taking the checkered flag after 200 laps in a big block modified. He was the last person who ever would. They’re tearing down the mile track at Syracuse, and no one is happy about it.
I don’t know if Landon Simon is the greatest sprint car driver running today, but I can definitely tell you he’s got a lot of attitude. Here he is flipping another driver the bird in the middle of a corner.
I mean seriously, how could you not want to watch this in a stadium on a jumbotron?
Tony Stewart's Eldora Speedway briefly showed this message around 2:00 p.m. Saturday purporting to be from ISIS. The message appeared in place of its usual graphics, complete with irritating autoplay audio of an Arabic song.
In 2014, sprint car racing has picked up more than a bit of a rough reputation, but it's a sport with a lot of heart. Just watch these two drivers tear out of their own cars to pull another driver to safety.
Jimmy "Neutron" Crawford walked away from this crash qualifying his wingless sprint car at Perris Auto Speedway earlier this month. He nearly flew entirely out of the track complex.
See that track? It has no guardrails. And those cars racing on it are only a few hundred short of a thousand horsepower. This kind of racing takes place all over the country. Welcome to the world of sprint cars.
