Has anyone heard anything about using Molex-(beet Molasses} or soybean oil for dust control on dirt tracks? Both are "green Products". Seems that Calcium Chloride is not being used so much anymore.

not 100 % sure state-side,but as far as I know Calcium is illegal to use over here..over at Merrittville,they use wood chips mixed in with the dirt for dust control..

Les Mawson here!!

Tracks for 2014!

Humberstone..doubt if i'll be going there this year!!

 

Merrittville..,5/19,5/24.5/31,6/7,6/14,6/28

Ransomville...1/1Hangover 2014

Rolling Wheels!!....

Ohsweken..been there a couple times so far this year, can't remember when...LOL

the only  dirt modifieds ARE DIRTcar MODS!!!......NOT THESE LEFT STEER "MODIFIEDS" THAT RACE IN THE REST OF NORTH AMERICA!!!..

 

I will continue to call them LEFT STEER until such time as the staff at Speedway illustrated and elsewhere get smart and STOP calling our cars "center steer!!"..

 

I mean..they don't call sprint cars "center steer", do they??

who knows where I'll end up?...LOL..


that's racin'® (phrase): Expresses frustration or emotion. 1. When a small part costing just a few dollars fails and stops a $150,000 race car, that's racin'. 2. When you race a competitor for 500 miles and lose to him by just a few feet, that's racin'. 3. When a hot dog wrapper blows out of the stands, gets caught across the air vent on the front of your car and causes your engine to overheat, that's racin'.4. when your team-mate runs into your ass without braking,that's racin'(attributed to some Formula one guy who I can't remember right now..LOL)

The PDKS or Pennsylvania Dirt Kart Series uses calcium at every track and every race. The tracks look like they were covered with snow. NY state does not allow it.

I know I'll get stoned for saying this.......
Pavement works really well for dust control. :lol:

Now I know why I have become a big fan of the NHRA. Wayyyy to much drama and BS in local dirt racing!

That is why they use it in parking lots.... to keep the dust down from all the cars driving around.

It also works well for crowd control at Malta... put it down on the race track and lack of seating went from being a problem, to no problem at all. lol. Sorry but that was WAAAAAY to easy to let slide. I
