Call of The Race



441 Speedway Brings the Weekend to an Exciting Conclusion

   Sunday night started out normally for the crate late model drivers at 441 Speedway but for one driver it ended with a trip to the hospital in the ambulance. About half way through the race an incident occurred between the 3 car of Phil Pittman, Eric Baggett, and Cla Knight. The axle from Knight's car came up through the floor of Pittman's car and came into contact with his leg breaking it. When getting out of the car Pittman showed no signs of being in pain or agony showing the tough guy mentality that he has. As he got out of his car it became apparent to everyone just how bad his leg was and when you see the video you will definitely be able to tell for yourself. Word of advice, if you are easily squeamish, don't watch. Our thoughts are with Phil as he recovers and we hope to see him at the race track soon.

Video: Richie Stevens Wins Crate Late Model Feature At Cochran Motor Speedway

Richie Stevens handily won the crate late model feature at Cochran Motor Speedway Friday night. By far, he had the fastest car in the field but that doesn't mean it was a boring race. My goodness, there was so much jockeying for position in the rest of the field that it was hard to focus on just one battle that was going on. Check out the video and see for yourself.

Middle Georgia Is A Hot Spot For Dirt Track Racing This Weekend

My, my, my - fans in Middle Georgia are in for a treat this weekend especially if they love dirt track racing. Three huge racing events will be taking place at Cochran Motor Speedway and 441 Speedway. The action gets underway in Cochran on Friday night and then there again on Saturday night. Sunday finds that action moving to 441 Speedway in Rentz, Georgia, just a few miles south of Dublin.

Fans may want to take off early to get to Cochran on Friday because they will not want to miss any of the action that gets underway. The gates will open at 4:00 PM with the drivers meeting beginning at 6:30 PM. Practice and racing action will follow shortly thereafter. That action will include a $1200 crate late model feature as well as heat races in Pure Stock, Bomber, Sportsman, Super Street, and National Late Model classes. Grandstand admission is $10 and a pit pass is $25.

Just in case you are from out of town and looking for a place to stay, there is a new hotel close to the track in Cochran. The name of it is the Cochran Inn & Suites. Their contact number is (478)-271-9500.

Many race fans from the area will be getting together Saturday afternoon at the Pit Stop Cafe in Chester. The owner, Christine Thomson, just might have the TV tuned in to the Nationwide and Sprint Cup action that day. ESPN's afternoon coverage begins at 2:00 PM. The Philly Cheesesteak sandwich is highly recommended.

Saturday night is the big night in Cochran as the main event will be a 50-lap $5000 National Late Model Series feature. Once again, gates will open at 4:00PM. Feature races will be run in Pure Stock, Bomber, Sportsman, and Super Street classes as well. Grandstand admission for Saturday will be $15 and a pit pass will be $35. Children aged 6-12 are $5 Grandstands and $10 Pits . Children ages 6 and under are admitted for free.Those wishing to save a little money and will be attending both nights may want to get the weekend pit pass at the discount rate of $50.

Just to make sure your racing appetite is whetted, the American Crate Late Model Series have scheduled a makeup race on Sunday afternoon at 441 Speedway. It will pay $2000. A high car count is expected as a lot of interest has been expressed so far. Other classes which will be running are Super Street, Pure Stock, Bomber, and Mini Stock. Grandstand admission will be $15 and a pit pass will cost $25. Children's prices are $5 Grandstands and $10 Pits.

Both of these tracks are known far and wide for their two and often three-wide racing action. After the NASCAR truck race opened the eyes of many more people to what dirt track racing is all about, this would be an excellent opportunity to invite your friends to come out and see some of the best racing around.

Wildcat Performance to Raise the Stakes at Needmore for July 27th

    This Saturday, July 27th at Needmore Speedway there will be extra incentive for drivers to set the pole in late models and to win the race. If you drive a late model and set the fastest time for the night, you will get $200 from Wildcat Peformance Engines and if you set the fastest time AND have a Wildcat Engine, you get the$200 plus another $200 for a total of $400 for the pole in a Wildcat Engine. $200 automatically goes to the pole winner but the $400 goes to the pole winner if he has a Wildcat Engine. To make it even more interesting is you sit on the pole in a Wildcat Engine AND win the race your $400 gets doubled to $800 on top of the $2000 that Needmore is already paying out to the winner but to collect the $800 you must get the pole in the Wildcat Engine and win the race. There are a total of 44 late model drivers who have a chance to win the $800! Mike is also going to have a kid's dash for candy during intermission for the littlest fans! Needmore will be paying out $2000 to the late model winner and with a raised payout it should bring out the competition in all the drivers. It's sure be an exciting ticket this weekend and thanks to Wildcat Performance Engines, it will be even that much more worth the price of admission.

Videos: Dixieland Dirt Track 7/19/13

Friday night Cottonwood, Alabama was a good place to be for race fans. The rain held off for a change and Ben Sumner, the new track manager at Dixieland Dirt Track, along with his staff, had things running smoothly. It was my first visit to the track and I thoroughly enjoyed it. As long as my wife and the Good Lord are willing, I plan on going back. It was well worth the two hour trip I took to make it over there. I was able to get a few photos and I even was was able to video most of the feature races. Please take a look at the photos and videos to see for yourself. The first video up is that of the Limited Sportsman feature. Jason Price was the winner in that race.

Jason Fitzgerald: No One Track Jack

   The racing life of Jason Fitzgerald has been like the life of a gypsy. A life that has taken him to a multitude of tracks and different places around the country. For some drivers, they drive at one track and one track only. Circumstances such as financial ones may keep them there or just because they have a sort of comfort zone there are some of the reasons why they don't venture out to different tracks. Jason believes that to be a better driver it takes going out to different tracks and racing against different caliber drivers is what helps to make a better driver.
