NASCAR usually runs on relatively tidy paved ovals, but not tonight. It’s time for the Race I Will Always Call The Mudsummer Classic To Annoy Baseball Hosers where the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series runs on Eldora Speedway’s dirt oval. It’s a whole race of NAS-trucks sideways on dirt, and it is wonderful.
A Dirt Late Model driver died from injuries sustained in a crash on Saturday night at Eldora Speedway, a half-mile dirt oval in Ohio. The event continued after the wreck, as the driver was transported to the hospital for severe injuries at the time.
I’ll never forget watching Bryan Clauson walk from victory lane directly into another car to belt up for a second race.
A carbon fiber chassis, 204 mile per hour, $240,000 McLaren 570S belongs out in the South of France or the Swiss Alps or Northern Italy somewhere. So naturally we took it to America’s gnarliest dirt track instead.
Young Kyle Larson is one of the best dirt oval racers in the country (if not the world) and stands as one of the fastest rising stars in NASCAR's top cup series. We asked him what is assuredly the most awkward question he's ever had to face in an interview.
NASCAR is racing on dirt today. Their trucks are running at the high-speed Eldora Speedway tonight and it's not quite a dirt track so much as a mud track.
I'm sitting in the back of our bigass Airstream Interstate in one of the plush captain's chairs, typing away on my laptop while Raphael pilots us past West Virginia into rural Ohio. This is the way to be.
So begins our road trip to Eldora and the sheer glory that is NASCAR trucks on dirt; we switched from a Fiesta to an Airstream RV.
Last year I watched F1 cars zip around COTA and sports cars take their last laps in the sunsetting ALMS series at VIR. So it's with authority I say nothing was more fun than watching NASCAR trucks on TV trying to drive around a dirt track in middle-of-nowhere Ohio. This year I had to see it in person. That's right, …
I am in no way shape or form a Nascar guy, but last night I watched a Nascar race that was genuinely amazing. And here are the highlights of Eldora, Nascar's first top-level race on dirt since 1970, in animated, infinite-looping gif form.
Back in 1965, NASCAR was seen as nothing more than a niche sport for southerners. The calendar was made up mostly of short tracks, both dirt and paved, and it only reached the national spotlight in "ABC's Wide World of Sports". That began to change quickly, however, and by 1970 the series had outgrown it's dirt track…
Despite a late-minute surge from folks like drag racing champion Cruz Pedregon, who proved quite adept at turning circles at Wednesday night's fourth annual Old Spice Prelude to the Dream charity race at Eldora Speedway, the winner ended up being the man that brought the racers there — Tony Stewart. We're assuming…
...and the Prelude To The Dream race starts at 7:00 PM tonight. We could totally make it down to the Tony Stewart-owned track. And believe us, we seriously thought about taking a run down to the track from Detroit. But frankly after covering it last year, the thought of spending the next week wiping down the dirt from…
