Dexter Dirt Nationals Fast Approaching

06.18.2009 -- Now that the Dunlop Tire Road Racing Series Grand National at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course is in the books, only one national event remains on WKA's June calendar. The event is the Jimmy Rivers Performance Works Grand Nationals for the Briggs & Stratton Speedway Dirt Series at Georgia's Dexter Raceway, set to go off next weekend, June 26-28.

The Jimmy Rivers Grand Nationals will mark the second of five stops on the 2009 Speedway Dirt schedule, and the first since late April's series opener at North Carolina's Margarettsville Speedway. Of course, since the event is a Grand National, the prestigious Grand National Eagles will be up for grabs for all feature winners at Dexter.

Some kart racers work their entire careers to win the celebrated Grand National Eagle trophies. Some accomplish it once, others multiple times, and in other cases, the Eagle continually eludes racers. Only time will tell who has put in the most garage hours and meticulous preparation in an effort to garner a 2009 Jimmy Rivers Performance Works Grand National Eagle. Thankfully, the time is almost here.

The Speedway Dirt Series will now be in action once a month from June until September. Remaining events following next weekend's Grand National at Dexter are at Liberty Raceway Park in Staley, N.C., July 24-26; Hanging Rock Raceway in Kershaw, S.C., Aug. 14-16; and the conclusion of the season Sept. 11-13 at Hurricane Raceway in Alma, Ga.

Dexter Raceway is a one-fifth-mile clay oval located in Dexter -- a central Georgia town off Interstate 16, about 50 miles southeast of Macon and 125 miles directly west of Savannah.

Pre-entries are now closed for the event. Racers still have the option of entering at the track.
