Dirt Track Racing at its best.

Check out the hay field behind the track. This facility is inside the City limits of Oskaloosa. Three cheers for the citizens of “Osky” for letting this continue and no complaints about the noise or the dirt.

f you want to get up close to racing and have some fun check out your nearest dirt track. If you don’t come home with dirt on your smiling face you weren’t paying attention.


We recently visited my favorite dirt half mile in Oskaloosa, Iowa; the Southern Iowa Speedway.

Hope you enjoy the following photos as much as I did taking them.

Some of these cars really didn’t need but three tires; the left front almost never touched the ground!

One of the best run racing evenings I have ever seen. These guys line them up and run the next heat onto the track as the completed racers are pulling in off the backstretch. No wasted time. I think they ran 12 races the night we were there.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys.
