We’ve come to that point of the season. The point where the weekly shows that we all love are just about finished. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. But at TDN, we’re optimists, and we’re also diehard dirt racing fanatics in addition to all we provide here at the site. And one thing we have in common with many of you, is that we see that the glass is still half full!
Welcome to the postseason, where we desperately search for just one more night of racing before the cold, harsh winter sets in. So to make it a little easier to see everything at a glance, to help fans find just one more night at the track, we’ve put together the following post season guide to the area special postseason events. Pick a night and go, get out there and support our sport!
