  • This race was great, however ever the race needed to run at night since, though it looked funny on tv, it was extremely dangerous since apparently the dust was so thick that drivers couldn’t see much. Also, this replay has a couple of random time skips for some reason which is a bit annoying. Hopefully this race will be more organized next year; since I see a lot of potential with this race in the future.

  • Great job for the issues you had to deal with. As a long time dirt track fan, I have two suggestions. #1. This needs to be a night race. The sun beating down on the dirt makes the dust worse. It won't hurt the fall race, it's two totally different experiences. #2. NO WINDSHIELDS. Don't tell me in a sport where one set of tires cost $12,000 that you can't fashion a metal rockscreen that welds to the front roll bars in the cockpit. Get them tearoffs on the helmet visor and lets do this RIGHT. Great Great job on the first attempt. These are just the tweeks that NEED to be made for the quality of the show's sake.

  • I'm from Indiana and I love dirt track racing but these cars were not designed for dirt track racing these are million-dollar race cars and this had to be absolutely the worst dirt track racing I have ever seen I used to go to the track in Kokomo every weekend my grandpa was involved in racing from Sprint Cars 2 World of Outlaws to Indy cars the only thing he wasn't involved in was NASCAR personally I think whatever corporate idiot came up with this idea she has to pay for the damages done to all of these cars out of his personal bank account these are not stock cars they have not been stock cars in years they are million dollar pieces of machinery not made for dirt

    Bob HollandBob Holland12 days ago
    • though I agree as a NY dirt guy, NASCAR can pull it off if they run it at night to keep the dust down and take the windshields off, add the rock screen and visor tear offs... I honestly think that alone would allow the drivers to focus on driving the cars and not worrying about not being able to see anything for half the lap. That alone would improve the show a LOT.

    Allen dmanAllen dman13 days ago
    • @JD Racing 84 Thanks for the info! :)

      Allen dmanAllen dman11 days ago
    • @Allen dman couple reasons for that. #1. The banking. It supports the cars enough, and they're at a low enough speed that the dead sideways driving you see on most lower banked tracks doesn't happen. even the real dirt cars weren't pitched as sideways on this track when they raced it. #2. heavy car, no offset in the chassis, skinny right rear tire etc. This is what street stocks would've looked like basically...

      JD Racing 84JD Racing 8411 days ago
    • @JD Racing 84 I was wondering if I was wrong on that. One thing is, they sure don't seem to drift in the corners near as much as local dirt track races I have been to. Maybe less horse power in Nascar?

      Allen dmanAllen dman11 days ago
    • ooof. look again. it's CLAY, and when you buff clay it gets black with rubber and slick. that wasn't pavement. that was the clay going 'hard pack' and getting black with rubber....

    • @Jeff B exactly it’s would be a great way to keep the drivers on their toes and would be a good change of pace from the traditional asphalt tracks and would force the teams to get creative on prepping the car for such harsh track conditions

    • Definitely. Much like how they do a "winter classic" in hockey and hold an outdoor event.

  • This is a stupid question.. but the track turning black, is that the dirt hardening? or the tires?

    GH0STFACEGH0STFACE13 days ago
    • @JD Racing 84 Helped me a lot, thank you

      GH0STFACEGH0STFACE10 days ago
    • The clay they use starts out with moisture in it. As the tires slide across it they buff the clay and pull the moisture out, which hardens and packs the clay down to a almost glass like surface... think of pottery before the kiln, then after the kiln... but the rubber also grinds into that slick surface and eventually drives much like pavement with a rubbered in groove... grip goes up and the cars tend to drive more like they're on asphalt even though it's still the dirt surface. hope that helps.

      JD Racing 84JD Racing 8411 days ago
    • Im pretty sure it's tires due the speed of cars because rubber leaves skid marks.

Do a silly Friday night race and I'll give you the $10 a month my dad used to at the physical track. IDK, have Gordon announce a silly enduro race at Eldora on dirt or at Riverhead during one of their Sunday afternoon shows. Lets. Get. Silly.

  • Nascar Fan here in the UK. I've enjoyed the dirt race plus I'm glad they ran the race on Monday rather than Sunday because of the weather. If this race ran on Sunday then I would predict a complete disaster as they would be mud on the cars windshield (or windscreen we call it here in the UK) every lap. To those who criticised this race I wonder what does NASCAR need to do keep you guys happy.

    Juned HussainJuned Hussain14 days ago
    • @JD Racing 84 I don't think it makes sense to have a oval race in the rain or damp race track. The one thing that I get sick to death of is people who keep saying 'why can't NASCAR race in the rain using wet tyres in the oval?'. The easy answer is that it's too dangerous and it's not a pleasant experience for everyone including the fans. Just imagine driving at 80 to 100 MPH in the rain on the motorway (or freeway in the USA) the visibility is terrible. I do hope NASCAR would implement new ideas like racing on a street course and more short track racing.

      Juned HussainJuned Hussain10 days ago
    • @Juned Hussain most likely not, but If NASCAR feels confident they can put on a good race with them you never know. I think personally it's a lot of money spent on preventing a delay at only maybe three tracks at best. yes it would be interesting, but does it really make much sense? not sure about that.

      JD Racing 84JD Racing 8410 days ago
    • @JD Racing 84 I agree it's a shame. If you don't like to watch NASCAR then don't watch it. I heard that they would test rain tyres on short tracks like Martinsville speedway if the race becomes damp not full wet. I think it would be interesting however even if the tests were successful, I doubt that it might be implemented this year.

      Juned HussainJuned Hussain10 days ago
    • This is an easy one to answer for you. There's not a damn thing that will make some people happy. they just watch, torturing themselves into hoping for something that just doesn't happen. They're fairly pathetic lol.

  • Is that the concrete showing thru under the track, or is it just packed dirt? Awesome race!

    CHUDDCHUDD14 days ago
    • the clay starts out wet with moisture. as the cars run over it with sliding and spinning tires, they buff the surface off while also pulling the moisture out. it hardens and packs down then takes rubber and drives similar to pavement, but your'e still on the dirt...

  • These crew guys are supposed to be the best thinkers out there but didn't understand that an Outerwear filter on the nose wouldn't work! You gotta leave the nose open then add a tight mesh covering the direct path to radiator. This allows air to get behind the nose then redirected around the plugged up mesh.
