DIRTcar Fall Nationals Info

The annual DIRTcar Fall Nationals, long a staple at Eldora Speedway (OH) in years past, is heading west for the 2018 racing season. The newly rebranded 23rd annual DIRTcar Fall Nationals, the traditional season-ending weekend for national DIRTcar points, will be held at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 (MO) on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, October 4-5-6.

DIRTcar Super Late Models will highlight the weekend of racing, joined by DIRTcar UMP Modifieds, DIRTcar Pro Late Models and Pro Modifieds, DIRTcar Factory Stocks, Sport Compacts, and Pro Sprints for an action-packed two days of racing in the Show-Me State. All national DIRTcar titles will be determined over the weekend as Rusty Schlenk-DIRTcar Super Late Models, Mike Harrison-DIRTcar UMP Modifieds, Allen Weisser-DIRTcar Pro Late Models and Tim Hancock-DIRTcar Pro Modifieds come into the 2018 racing season as the reigning National Champions.

Camping, a staple at the championship events, will be available at the picturesque river front facility.
