Thank you to the Dirt Kings Tour drivers, crews, families, fans, tracks, sponsors and staff for making our inaugural season a success.
Looking back at the 2017 season, 58 drivers competed to be King and six succeeded. A Champion was crowned. We saw three-wide and four-wide racing, 50 laps of green flag racing in 13 minutes, packed grandstands, and an average car count of 28 cars.
We made new friends, reconnected with old friends, and enjoyed every minute of it. We love seeing Dirt Kings Tour shirts at race tracks, restaurants and everywhere else. We thank you for your support.
Even though our season has ended, we are busy planning for 2018. We look forward to sharing our plans with you. We've got plenty of fun giveaways planned during the off-season, so stay tuned!

141 Speedway, Round 12
Thursday, September 28, 2017
Nick Anvelink wins Round 12 of the DiscountShopTowels.com Dirt Kings Late Model Tour at 141 Speedway. In addition to winning the race, Anvelink was also crowned the 2017 Champion.
As the cars took the track for the A-Main, rain began to fall, and the start of the race was delayed. When the rain stopped, the track needed to be prepped before racing could resume.
Anvelink started the 30-lap A-Main outside row 1, with Brett Swedberg on the Pole. Anvelink was challenged for the lead by Swedberg on several occasions, but he held on to lead every lap.
Swedberg finished second, followed by Ron Berna, Joel Bennett, and Jared Siefert.
In the Championship Battle, Berna moves to 2nd in the point standings as a broken rocker arm ended the night early for Justin Hirt, who drops to 3rd. Swedberg finishes 4th, with Jared Siefert in 5th.
Wilmot Raceway, Round 10
Saturday, September 16, 2017
Brad Jj Mueller wins Round 10 of the DiscountShopTowels.com Dirt Kings Late Model Tour at Wilmot Raceway. Mueller started the 30-lap A-Main outside row one and raced side by side with Tim Buhler, taking the lead coming out of turn two on lap two. A caution slowed the field as Brett Swedberg and Buhler battled for second and Troy Springborn in fourth. Mueller had a close call at the halfway point as he tangled with Victor Benedetto but was able to hold on. Caution slowed ...the field before the lap could be completed and on the restart Swedberg, Mitch McGrath, Jim Letizia, Taylor Scheffler and Chris Carlson got together in turn one, bringing out the red flag.
Mueller had a sizable lead after the restart, but caution slowed the race again with six to go. Buhler, Springborn and Hirt battled for second on the restart. Buhler held on to finish second, followed by Justin Schmidt, Hirt and Springborn.
