Josh42 Posted January 4, 2017 Report Share Posted January 4, 2017 Reading one of the other posts and Cory brought up some good points about Asphalt and Dirt Racing. What is the difference between dirt and asphalt? Now I know there is some obvious ones but why is it that dirt tracks are surviving and thriving and reopening across the country and asphalt tracks are slowly becoming things of the past. Its still racing and it doesn't matter if your running an eco-stock or a sprint car its going to be expensive. But why is it that CBS can pull 75+ cars every weekend and full stands and stay open. Asphalt tracks run once a month pull 100+ cars and stands are almost full and they are closing all over the place. Here is a couple things I see: Asphalt Racing: 10 to 12 Classes Racing one night (PLM, MOD, Trucks, SS, Limited Mods, Grands, ECOs, Legacy, Dwarfs, Bandos) Get to the track at 10:00AM to practice all day then race that night Higher Expenses for Fuel and Tires due to more usage Different Rules at every track Dirt Track: 4 to 5 Classes racing (Mods, Sport Mods, Street Stock, Hobby Stock, ECO) Less Time at the track Less wear and tear on tires Have to clean all the mud and dirt off the car Multiple grooves of racing Common Rules throughout the US Just wondering why some drivers choose asphalt over dirt or vice versa.
