Talking Not sure where to post this: Dirt Track Racing

Do you know where I could find information on dirt track racing?

I got hooked while I was in Iowa visiting family. I really enjoy this kind of racing but I don't know what it technically is; what group organizes it, what the rules and guidelines are, etc.

Any information would be greatly appreciated, and I hope this is in the appropriate forum.

Probably should be in the general section since its not a tech question.

Its not as popular in america as it is in europe. Therefore its hard to find good information about it. My best suggestion is to find a group of people who have been doing it for a while, and learn what you can.

There's all different kinds of dirt track racing, which were you talking about? It's real easy to get involved with RallyX type events which require no more preparation than an autox. SCCA sponsors those, check their regional pages. NASA and Rally America sponsor Club and ProRally events which aren't really "track" events but they sure are in the dirt.

If your talking about dirt circle track racing then there are about 20 different classes of vehicles that run the dirt tracks. In my area (PA, OH, VA, MD, WV) this type of racing is pretty big. I have 3 tracks within 30 miles. Im not really sure what sanctioning body governs it? Most of this type of racing is tracks from 1/4 to 3/4 miles and its really fun to watch. Controlled sliding through the turns, 100mph+ in the straights, lots of crashes, the smell of burnt racing fuel.......makes me wanna goto a race, i havent been to one in years. Hahahaha
