More money for late models?

Quincy Raceways late model drivers appear to have an excellent chance to pocket some extra benjamins this season. Stay with me on this one. DIRTcar has released its late model regions and Quincy has been placed in the West. OK, that’s nice. But the real news here is Quincy is the only track in that […]

41 for 41, No. 26: Tough task

One of the toughest accomplishments for a Quincy Raceways driver is what we like to refer to as the “Triple Crown” — winning the midseason and season-ending championship races, plus the track points title. It’s only been accomplished 14 times since 1994. Mark Burgtorf has done it three times in the late models, Tony Dunker […]

41 for 41, No. 24: Get outta their way

For me, one of the most entertaining parts of the Sunday night features is watching which drivers can pick their way through the field. That’s what led to the creation of Improvement Points six years ago. Oldtimers like Jack Walbring prefer “hard charger” points. Whatever your semantic preference, they represent the same thing — positions […]

‘Fireball’ finishes 26th at Martinsville
