Dirt Track Digest TV 

Night 1: Terrible rendition of the Star Spangled Banner by a young girl reading it from her phone and still screwing it up...on Veterans Day, of all days. Then immediately the lights go out for 25 minutes delaying the show. Not a good start.  23 Mods, 4 were good, 4 were mediocre, and the balance is bad and Dave Rauscher in his own league of bad.  Coverage was excellent. Jeff Ahlum very good and the local announcer was very good also, but talks as fast as an auctioneer and has some really funny sayings that he repeats often, like when a guy finishes second he says "he left the keys on the table" or "get up on the horse and put a whip to it", or when a guy gets hit " a shot in the shorts" lol. Two  local support divisions of an IMCA type modified and a Factory Stock class with 25-30 cars in each made for excellent racing in the heats and the features, much better then the Modifieds.   Very quick two and half hour show.

Night 2: Repeat of night one, but a good National Anthem and no light issues. 22 Mods. Three support divisions. Crate Late Models with no roofs on asphalt slicks (yes, a dirt track), 16 cars.  4 cylinders with 6 cars.  These two divisions were worse then bad. A super late model type division with 30 cars. These were real good. Competitive heats, consi, and feature.  Shows starts at 8pm EST (7pm CST). Mod 50 lap non stop feature done at 9:30 EST. Racing better in the Mods night two, but Sheppard is killing them.

Chatham Speedway, Louisiana tonight, but I will probably skip this one because it is only qualifying for a $20k to win 70 lapper Saturday night. Although the announcer "Reggie" at Chatham Speedway is well worth buying the shows for.
