The latest edition of the Quick Six blog looks at the past year in racing plus some recent news that will play into the 2019 season that’s just ahead.
- The 2018 season ended the way it began – wet and cold. Let’s hope 2019 will be much better.
- Rebranding the Southern Nationals Bonus Series into the Fall Nationals is a good idea on two fronts. One, it gives some late-season races some much needed punch that are overshadowed by the mega events during the fall. Two, the Bonus Series was a confusing name for some.
- It will be interesting to see what can (and cannot) get done at Smoky Mountain Speedway with just one owner in control. It’s easier to make decisions with just one person calling the shots, but it’s up to one person to pay the bills.
- Just when it looked like the silly season of dirt racing was almost over, an explosion of news has taken place this week. Some of the recent news has been unpredictable.
- The future of Volunteer Speedway is up in the air. No one seems for certain what is next for the Bulls Gap track.
- Another crate series coming onto the scene is either a sign crate racing continues to grow or just another group of people trying to cut into the pie.
