Jeff Hachmann of DIRTcar NorthEast stops in to pump Super DIRT Week, and Daryl Barrett acts as our field reporter at the Spalding Foundation’s Challenge of Champions II at the Seneca Grand Prix in Watkins Glen, featuring Allen Bestwick, Jeff Green, and Erik Darnell.

Thoughts go out to Randy Adams, a derby driver in Pennsylvania. Adams’ father was seriously injured when a fuel cell exploded on a truck they were preparing to run Saturday night. Pete is doing well following a series of surgeries, but doctors are continuing to caution everyone.

In the newly-launched topic segment, we look at ‘why go to the races, anyway?’ and cover all sorts of results and upcoming local events, and take a deep look into the mailbag.

And of course, we touch on the wonders of fantasy modified racing (and the 31st Lap Team is doing mighty well).
