  1. Found this piece after a friend sent me a note about a tornado hitting Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, MO. I've never been there but it is one of the nicest I've seen pictures of. https://www.ozarksfirst.com/news/severe-storms-hit-wheatland-hard/2016071118 Here is a link to images of the damage. https://www.ky3.com/content/news/PICTURES-Storm-flips-trailers-at-Lucas-Oil-Speedway-in-Wheatland-510206331.html
  2. Sadly Bob we are rained out. We had a contingency plan in place for the parking lot if need be as it's a pond, but the forecast is calling for thunderstorms right at race time. We don't want to make everyone travel only to have storms take us down at 6pm. Doesn't seem to matter what efforts the track makes, they can't win with the weather this year. "Unfortunately tonight’s racing program has been cancelled for 5/15. With all the rain the last three days the grounds have not dried out enough and we have a forecast of more than this evening scheduled for our start time. In order to save everyone the travel time we wanted to make this decision early. We appreciate all the support we received for this show, but Mother Nature just continues to not be our friend. Our next race is scheduled for this Sunday, May 19 as the Utica-Rome Kartway comes to life. Racing is scheduled to go green at 1pm. Hot laps is at noon with gates opening at 10am. The next big track event is slated for Memorial Day Weekend. On Sunday, May 26 we have the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints, DirtTrackDigest.com DIRTcar 358-Modifieds, the VP Racing Fuels Summer Shootout Sportsman Series and the Bernie’s Extreme Performance Rookie Sportsman. Racing gets under at 6pm. For more information visit www.uticaromespeedway.com"
  3. Sadly we've been forced to cancel for tonight. We just cannot catch a break with the weather.
  4. The race is still on. No idea, but we know Mike Mahaney and Danny Johnson are few of the invaders we expect.
  5. Here is full rundown of info for Wednesday night. Wednesday, May 15 DirtTrackDigest.com DIRTcar 358-Modified Broedel Fuel Group DIRTcar Sportsman Ted’s Body Shop DIRTcar Pro Stocks Bernie’s Extreme Performance Parts Rookie Sportsman Pit gates open at 4:30 pm / Spectator gates open at 5:30 pm / Racing at 7 pm General Admission $10 / Kids 16 and Under Free Pits $27 with DIRTcar License / $30 without The event is also available on DirtTrackDigest.tv but we'd rather see you at the races.
  6. I can understand why. I can take a canoe from one side of my backyard to the other here in Brewerton, and no I don't live on the lake lol
  7. We appreciate all the tracks/companies and others that have purchased ads from us. It helps pay the bills and keep all of our online content like news, photos and forums free. BAPS Motor Speedway, Thunder Mountain Speedway, Utica-Rome Speedway and Weedsport Speedway as well as the Short Track Super Series all take advantage and we are thankful to have them on board with us. We'd love to have more tracks advertising with us. We have some great support but more is always better. Of course the product sponsorship is appreciated as well. Again without the tracks and the companies we couldn't do what we do. If you do see something here and end up going with that product as a result of DTD we'd appreciate you letting them know. I know we've advertised places and it's always great to hear when people saw your ad somewhere. We offer cheaper rates than others and can back up our traffic to show you what the value you get by advertising with us. Any tracks/companies interested can contact myself at mikemallett@dirttrackdigest.com.

    Sheppard ran a small-block car on Saturday and a big-block on Sunday.
  9. Hahah Bob Miller. If you've been to Iowa in August it's HOT so you need to replenish your fluids. I also like Peace Tree as they used to do tours etc. I find that kind of stuff fascinating.
  10. Been going for the last 13 years or so and some of the cool things we've found to do locally: 1. Hall of Fame 2. Slideways Karting Center (go karts and mini-golf) 3. Mr C's is a good food hot spot. Usually a lot of drivers eat there during the day. 4. Don't know if you are into garage sales, but there is a ton throughout town and every now and then you find some cool stuff. Found a few 1/64th diecast cheap a couple of years ago. 5. Dingus - not my favorite place simply because there will be a lot of people, but fun in the afternoon. They have bands/cornhole tourney's etc 6. Thursday Night of 410 Nationals - Always a chicken bbq under the grandstands, plus live bands nightly on the stage at night by the media center. Make sure if you plan on drinking at all have a DD, they don't mess around. Also go the speed limit. I've seen more than my fair share of people going 60 in a 55 get pulled over. 7. Daily shows on the stage with Steve Post and the Winged Nation gang. It's right next to the Iowa Beer Bus. Just saying lol. 8. Walk the midway - not as big as it used to be but some cool trailers, collectibles and stuff to do. 9. I want to say it's Peace Tree Brewing Company downtown if you are into craft beers. 10. The lake isn't bad. The park is there and you can go check out the sites as well as some bald eagles if they are still around. There is plenty of other stuff to do. We always seem to find something new to do every year. If you type in Knoxville Nationals Blog on Youtube it should bring you to our yearly trek and the dumb stuff we end up doing. I'm sure I'm forgetting something.
  11. Modifieds: 100gs to win at OCFS, 53,000 at Fonda and 50gs to win at Super DIRT Week, Eastern States Weekend. Sprint Cars: Knoxville Nationals, Kings Royal and National Open. and with that, any new track that I can get to this year. There is nothing like going to a track for the first time.
  12. Our ticker is connected with the scoring system so at times as they scorer makes changes, that will as well.
  13. Congratulations to the following people on winning the DTD TV raffle from the show this weekend: 1st Prize - Darrell Welty - Full season DTD TV Pass for all events 2nd Prize - Bruce Heschke - Georgetown Speedway pass for this weekend 3rd Prize - Tom Backus - Utica-Rome Speedway opening event pass Thanks to all that entered. I'll be emailing winners later today to get everything squared away.
  14. I was there. As usual a few too many cautions, but that's indoor racing. The feature for the TQs was a really awesome battle between Justin Bonsignore and Erick Rudolph. It was one of the better venues I've seen indoor racing at.
  15. Be sure to pick up your raffle ticket for a chance to win an All-Access pass to DirtTrackDigest TV for the entire 2019 season. Raffle tickets are just $5 each or three for $10 and you'll get every lap of every race that we broadcast this season, including all of the Short Track Super Series.
