Dirt Track Racing School
12/21/10 at 3:33pm
 
Hello guys, I'm getting back into dirt racing when I get out of the Army soon and was wondering if anyone knows of a dirt track driving school on the West Coast.  I figure there has to be something in CA or AZ, but all my searches turn up in Arkansas and the Carolinas.  I'm not sure what car class I'm going to race, but probably Super Stock or Modified, on dirt for sure.  Even if it's a late model school, I'm sure I can benefit from it.  Any ideas?  Thanks!

Yah, I did see Kruseman's Sprint car school.  Do you think that would help getting into a Super Stock or Mod? I want to be competitive right off the bat.  

I got a Marine buddy stationed in Yuma who gave me the idea of school because he saw a guy jump into a yellow #08 Super and he won like his third night out beating the track champ.  The word is the guy had never driven a dirt stock car but went back East to a school last summer.  That's what I'm talking about.

I don't think a sprint car school would do much if any good, as the cars are so radically different in power to weight ratio, and set-up

But going to one of the ones you back east might serve you better

This is just my opinion, but I think a chassis school would be far more beneficial then a driving school.  If you know how to make the car work, anyone could do well, but if your a good driver in an ill prepared and set up car, nothing will help. Learn the chassis and set up, the school of hard knocks will finish out the education.

That guy was a drag racer i heard and Yuma's has had a really high attrition rate since it re-opened. Just from watching I wouldn't say the guy was on the level to win just got lucky, but thats racing. I have only had 1 race myself, it's not that hard but i do agree about getting setup knowledge being better than a driving school.

Good luck tho, hope to see ya out at Cocoopah

Yah, I'll be going to the Yuma track next month to check it out.  My boy there tells me the track prep is nonexistent or the track surface is pure crap- a lot of broke cars.  Sounds like off road racing to me.

How are the Stree Stocks down there, competition and car counts-wise?

Nice looking Nova, BTW.

Thanks, car count for for Yuma street stocks have been about 15-20 cars. As far as the track prep goes, they are starting to get it down. The track was closed for 10 years so the clay base is starting to take hold and if it continues like it was for sat night of the turkey classic it should be really good this spring.
