This is the ultimate in something. The last chance race is about to start to be followed by the main event. This is American style circle track racing at it's best for the first time in forty years. Ken Schrader at age 58 won the first qualifying race and will start the main event on the pole.

No racing venue in the world requires anywhere near the car control as racing on a dirt track.

The last time I went to a circle dirt track race I road their in a 1958 Lincoln Continental Mark III, and it was brand new!

Best race I've seen for any NASCAR series in a long time. Even if you're not a NASCAR fan, if your're a driver, you have to appreciate what it takes to navigate a dirt track in a #3400lb truck. Its like a permanent wet skid pad at 90+mph.

After being in the pits for a few races this year for the truck series, I will say Norm Benning is totally outgunned most weeks and his operation is pretty weak, but he showed in that LCQ that hes still a solid wheel man at 61 years old.

I didn't get a chance to watch this but on Saturday I am going to the Nationwide Series race in Indy through work. I might stay the night and go on Sunday too but we will see what the wife says lol.

I was pleasantly surprised. I can't imagine how cool it would be if the NSCS series paid a visit. And this is off of ~4 minutes of footage.
