It’s time to get dirty once again! This weekend’s looking pretty stacked as the majority of local shows are open for business nation wide and the national tours are mostly in play. But what beer would best suit the tailgate party? No worries Dirt Nation, we’re here to help. This week, we recommend you pick up a case of these.
312 Urban Wheat Ale is like the first taste of spring and summer. It’s completely light and refreshing too and finishes really clean. Not too much head here, but then again head can be overrated depending on whom you ask. It chimes in at 4.2% so if you want to catch a quick buzz, might want to down them fairly quickly, but not so fast that you don’t savor the flavor!
Now then…let’s get to some races!
World of Outlaw Sprints at Devils Bowl
Outlaw founder Ted Johnson started the franchise here, and here it returns for a second straight year! And coming into the weekend, Daryn Pittman will be attempting to score a hat trick on Friday night as he swept the two race set at Perris and Tucson last weekend. Be on the lookout for an Aaron Reutzel or Wayne Johnson appearance and perhaps a Johny Herrera sighting. Last year’s winner was Donny Schatz in their one race as the opening night was cancelled. How many Schatz’s Shots will be consumed this weekend? Better hit the liquor store!
Points Coming Into the Weekend:
1. Brad Sweet- 2395
2. Shane Stewart- 2302
3. Donny Schatz- 2296
4. Daryn Pittman- 2277
5. Joey Saldana- 2269
Lucas Oil Late Models at Sharon Speedway (Friday) and Hagerstown Speedway (Sat)

Two can’t miss events for late model fans. Expect some interesting cars invading this weekend as cars from Ohio, West Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania enter the mix. Sharon could be a complete surprise winner as there’s not much of a playbook for the Lucas touring regulars, and at Hagerstown there’ll be more than a few locals and regionals who will be in the mix.
