Dirt Track Racing School Teams up with Dan Breuer for Intro to Late Model Racing Class
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (December 16) - 2011 NeSmith Dirt Late Model Series Champion Dan Breuer will be joining forces with Charlotte, NC’s Dirt Track Racing School to offer a special, 2-day Intro to Dirt Late Model Racing class on February 17 & 18, 2012. This unique class will feature a mix of both classroom learning and time behind the wheel of a dirt Late Model.
“We get students from all over the country that drive our racecars”, said Dirt Track Racing School President Shawn Parker. “And lately, we’ve had a lot of our students asking us to offer a class that includes more than just driving. We’ve decided to team up with our friend, current NeSmith Series Champ, Dan Breuer to offer an expanded Late Model class where our students can learn about setup, maintenance & making changes to the car at the track.”
The goal of the class is to give an overall introduction to Late Models for those getting into the sport & offer insight to current drivers and teams that are looking to improve their racing programs. Day one of the Intro to Late Model Racing class will focus on setup, racecar maintenance and at-track adjustments, while day two will consist of track time in a Late Model at Carolina Speedway in Gastonia, NC.
According to Parker, “Dan comes out to the school to do private instruction when his racing schedule permits, and we’ve talked for a long time about working together to offer a formal program to help take some of the mystery out of racing Late Models on dirt. With Dan clinching the NeSmith Dirt Late Model Championship at East Bay Raceway Park a couple of weeks ago, and the offseason upon us, we think it’s a great time to team up and make it happen.”
Breuer has been racing Late Models for over 25 years, and has been involved in racing since he was four years old. “I’ve been racing for a long time, and it’s exciting to help racers getting into the sport or racers that are trying to get more comfortable with driving & setting up their cars”, said Breuer. “I’ve worked with the Dirt Track Racing School off and on over the last few years, and I’m looking forward to doing this 2-day setup & driving school.”
Some of the specific topics to be covered in the classroom portion of the Intro to Late Model Racing class include 4-bar suspension, rear steer, roll center, engine maintenance, chassis maintenance, tire choice, brake bias, chassis adjustments, wheel spacing and driver feedback. The driving portion of the class will cover overall driving technique, corner entry, braking, driving line, consistency and changing track conditions.
