NASCAR stars push for 'new' to improve state of racing

  NASCAR stars push for 'new' to improve state of racing NASCAR has been reluctant to make more than modest tweaks to its schedule. That hasn't stopped its drivers this summer from wondering about possibilities in hopes of luring more fans: - a Cup race on Eldora dirt.- more races at short tracks.- no more multiple races at the same track.- try Iowa; go back to Rockingham.The idea of blowing up a schedule that has largely remained unchanged for most of the last decade is hardly a novel idea, and drivers have long lobbied NASCAR to try something new and mix things up over the staid summer months.

Seavey , who said on Twitter he didn’t do anything real special besides avoid a couple wrecks He ends up on SportsCenter for driving up the fence . Wise stays in obscurity even though he’s not even The victory for Wise was also monumental in the realm of auto racing history as no driver that young

The best dirt track racing I caught all year- Multiple flips and tight passing all night long at Putnamville, Indiana's famous Lincoln Park Speedway!

The most impressive drive of this weekend didn’t come in a sports car race or in the rain at Watkins Glen, it was on a dirt track in Pennsylvania as one driver went to extreme measures to avoid crashing into a fellow competitor.

Logan Seavey, a 21-year-old dirt track racer, is the current USAC National Midget points leader and if he wins the championship this year, this move may be what won him the title. Hanging out in the middle of the top five, Seavey encountered a spun out Spencer Bayston and had nowhere to go. Usually when racers have nowhere to go, they have no choice but to drive into the wrecked car and your race ends. Instead, Seavey went all Men in Black with it and drove his car on the catch fence to avoid a wreck and was able to continue.

Kyle Larson says he does not want the NASCAR Cup series to race on a dirt track, after Tony Stewart mooted an Eldora race

  Kyle Larson says he does not want the NASCAR Cup series to race on a dirt track, after Tony Stewart mooted an Eldora race Stewart has overseen the emergence of the Eldora Speedway's dirt track race, culminating in a highly popular Trucks race - the third tier of NASCAR - and he now believes the circuit could host either the feeder Xfinity series or a Cup race.Larson was part of the commentary team for last week's Eldora truck race and is a regular dirt racing competitor outside of his Chip Ganassi Racing Cup commitments.

Dirt Track Racing Crash . Tyler Pettitt. Загрузка We were only able to make it down the front stretch and couldn't avoid a spinning car ahead of us. The #12 car nearly avoided the crash but was hit by the #50 car in the rear wheel taking sustaining some pretty heft damage.

In dirt track racing, “riding the cushion” means racing as high as you can in the turns to get that little bit of extra grip on the track and improve your lap time. This is something else entirely. Seavey wound up finishing third while Zeb Wise won and became the youngest ever winner in the series.

Seavey is trying to make his way up the racing ranks and someday get to NASCAR. A Toyota development driver, Seavey got his first NASCAR start racing for Kyle Busch in this year’s Eldora Camping World Truck race. In the annual dirt race, Seavey led for a chunk of the race but fell back to eighth. Given that he can drive a car on a fence, bring it back down and continue, I think he deserves some more NASCAR races.
