Finally Permanent: Monster Truck Hall of Fame Finds Its Home

The Hall of Fame and Museum is in Auburn, Indiana, but only until spring.

Forever Home…words a husband and wife, their kids, and family all eventually want to have.  A place that they know exactly where they will grow up, make memories, and never have to leave.  Families long to have that, and once it is achieved, everyone knows where it is, and sometimes ...

Dustin Off the Final Race: Season Finale 500

Season Finale 500

February 17, the 2020 season began with a repeat winner in the Daytona 500, and one driver in the hospital causing the entire racing community to be worried, but hopeful.  It went through the western swing of tracks. Then, it stopped. The pandemic stole away our sports, our escape, our ...

Dustin Off the Next Race: Xfinity 500

Xfinity 500

It is hard to believe that the season has gotten to the point that we are ready to officially set the final four heading into the championship.  In April, it seemed like this would never happen since the racing had halted.  But, instead, we are actually at the point where ...

Dustin Off the Next Race: Autotrader EchoPark 500

Autotrader EchoPark 500

In a year that has been anything but typical, this weekend’s event at Texas seems to have a typical feeling for many of us.  Maybe it’s because that despite everything that has gone on this year with races getting cancelled, others rescheduled to be double-headers, and some tracks hosting two ...

We are officially at the part of the season where the intensity has been ramped up beyond ideas and knowledge.  When this race was in the Round of 12 for several years, it was the one to set the tone.  We can all remember back in 2015 when it set ...

Dustin Off the Next Race: Bank of America ROVAL 400

BoA Roval 400

Last week I was speaking about how Talladega was the original wild card race of the playoffs.  This week, there are so many wild cards in play that some drivers would want a new deck.  Could there be any more elements that will make today’s action that much more difficult? ...

Dustin Off the Next Race: Yellawood 500

Yellawood 500

Wild cards are always unpredictable, as there’s a possibility that something unexpected will happen, and sometimes actually does.  That’s why there’s a wild card round in baseball and football, a chance for the lower seeds to stun the opposition and move ahead. NASCAR’s version of a wild card has been ...

Dustin Off the Next Race: South Point 400

South Point 400

It feels weird for NASCAR to go to a track where all the glitz and glamour of such a tourist town is not going to be able to see the racing.  Las Vegas, much like the weekend at Richmond and so many others this season, are not hosting fans for ...

Shining, Flying, and Roaring Make the Indy Jamboree a Wild Weekend in 2020

Get a load of this...the Dirt Crew was flying high in Indianapolis.

All summer and into the fall, all that many people wanted to do is simply get out.  Being forced to stay home, then potentially finally seeing a way to get out, only to see it ripped away, has taken away many vacation opportunities for so many folks.  Amusement parks either ...

Dustin Off the Next Race: Bass Pro Shops Night Race

UNI_15-NR-369 Night Race_Bristol Logo-BW

If there is ever a more perfect venue to decide who is in and who is out of the playoffs, this place has to be it.  A track where drivers get on your nerves, but as tight as the action can get, it means payback can be on the horizon.  ...
