Three affiliates have been withdrawn from the site. Atchison County Raceway in Atchison, KS is being permanently closed and disassembled, so has been removed. Heartland Motorsports Park in Topeka, KS is now only running special events, and is therefore now an optional affiliate, so they, along with another optional affiliate, Jayhusker Racing Series, have been eliminated since neither are actively participating on the site.

These Kansas tracks include Elmwood Park Speedway in Norton, Osborne Speedway in Osborne, and Rooks County Speedway in Stockton.
With the management of I-90 Speedway making the move to Badlands Motor Speedway and ceasing current operations of I-90 Speedway, we have moved I-90 Speedway to Level II status until the expected return of racing resumes again in the future.
With Wagner Speedway not running a regular program this season, we have moved the track to Level II status.
Expansion & Affiliate Updates (Added 3/15/2016)

This expansion brings in one new Level II Colorado track, Lamar Speedway in Lamar, and two Level II Kansas tracks, Heartland Park Topeka in Topeka and Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City.

Those that did not request to remain included, and have therefore been removed, are, from Iowa, Audubon County Fairgrounds in Audubon and Calhoun County Speedway in Rockwell City; from Kansas, Clay Center Dirt Track in Clay Center, Kansas State Fairgrounds in Hutchinson, Rush County Speedway in La Crosse, Solomon Valley Raceway in Beloit, and Washington Speedway in Washington; from Missouri, Bethany Speedway in Bethany and US 36 Raceway in Osborn; from Nebraska, Custer County Fairgrounds in Broken Bow, Dundy County Speedway in Benkelman, Jefferson County Speedway in Fairbury, and Litchfield Speedway in Litchfield; and series affiliates Corn Belt Clash (CBC) Series, Colorado Outlaws Series, Dirt Truck Racing Association (DTRA) Series, Heartland Racing Association (HRA) Series, Mid America Racing Series (MARS), Midwest LateModel Racing Association (MLRA) Series, National Championship Racing Association (NCRA) Series, Performance Open Wheel Racing, Inc.

Another Huge Expansion (Added 4/2/2012)
For the second straight year, we have made another large expansion in our coverage area for the upcoming season, even topping our growth from last year. We are excited to welcome our 41 new track and series affiliates to our site, adding three new states in the process! As reflected in our updated home page coverage map, we are now covering an eight state area, bringing on Minnesota, Missouri, and Wyoming, in addition to expanding further in all directions in our previous five state area.
New tracks include from Nebraska, Level II Affiliate Dundy County Speedway in Benkelman; from Iowa, Level I Affiliates Clarke County Speedway in Osceola, Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Marshalltown Speedway in Marshalltown, and Stuart International Speedway in Stuart, and Level II Affiliates Boone Speedway in Boone, Dallas County Speedway in Adel, Iowa State Fair Speedway in Des Moines, and Warren County Speedway in Indianola; from South Dakota, Level I Affiliates Black Hills Speedway in Rapid City and I-90 Speedway in Hartford, and Level II Affiliate Huset's Speedway in Brandon; from Colorado, Level II Affiliate El Paso County Speedway in Calhan; from Kansas, Level I Affiliates 81 Speedway in Park City, Kansas State Fairgrounds in Hutchinson, and Salina Speedway in Salina, and Level II Affiliates Decatur County Speedway in Oberlin, Dodge City Raceway Park in Dodge City, Rush County Speedway in La Crosse, and The Great American Dirt Track in Jetmore; from Minnesota, Level I Affiliate Nobles County Speedway in Worthington, and Level II Affiliates Jackson Speedway in Jackson and Murray County Speedway in Slayton; from Missouri, Level I Affiliate I-35 Speedway in Winston, and Level II Affiliates Bethany Speedway in Bethany and US 36 Raceway in Osborn; and from Wyoming, Level II Affiliates Gillette Thunder Speedway in Gillette and Valentine Speedway in Glenrock.
New series include Level I Affiliates Colorado Late Models (CLM), Championship Late Model Association (CLMA), and Dirt Truck Racing Association (DTRA), and Level II Affiliates Corn Belt Clash (CBC), Deery Brothers Summer Series (DBSS), Jackson Speedway Touring Series (JSTS), Mid America Racing Series (MARS), Midwest 305 Sprint Cars (M305SC), Midwest Classic Stockcar Association (MCSA), Performance Open Wheel Racing, Inc. (POWRi), Show Me Vintage Racing (SMVR), and Wingless Auto Racing (WAR). And we welcome back a previous Level II Affiliate, Central Vintage Racing Association (CVRA), now that our expanded coverage area once again includes tracks that they visit.
Changes in existing affiliates include Crawford County Speedway in Denison, Iowa and Raceway Park in Jefferson, South Dakota, moving up from Level II to Level I this year. And with schedule cutbacks this season, Cedar County Speedway in Hartington, Nebraska and Calhoun County Speedway in Rockwell City, Iowa are moving from Level I to Level II. Series affiliate Outlaw Vintage Lite Racing Series (OVLRS) has undergone a name change and is now the Nebraska Modified Lites (NML).
We have also made a small refinement in our general class name terminology that is used to identify groups of the small engine classes common to several of our tracks and series. As we do not list all of the many specific subdivisions of the small engine classes in our Dirt Driver Directory, we instead list them as general classes consisting of three basic groups. The general group previously referred to as "Mini-Sprints" was intended to include all classes of Mini-Sprints, Micro Sprints, Modified Midgets, Quarter Midgets, and all other scaled down versions of open cockpit racing automobiles with a body design that resembles a Sprint Car and powered by small engines. However, the specificity of the name could be incorrectly interpreted to imply that it excluded some of those classes, so this class has been renamed to the more general sounding "Scaled Sprint". The other two general classes have been unchanged. "Dwarf" still refers to all classes of full bodied scaled down racing automobiles, including Vintage Lites, Modified Lites, and other similar classes. And "Kart" is still the general class used for all divisions of Karts.
Full USMTS Series (Added 2/16/2012)
With the USMTS going away from its regional division structure, we are now once again covering the entire USMTS Series.
Links Page Changes (Added 2/15/2012)
To keep our Links page more streamlined and easier to maintain, only links to tracks and series that are not current affiliates will be included since affiliates already have their links listed on their track and series pages. Likewise, since racing team links are already included on profile pages in our Dirt Driver Directory, we will no longer also list them on our Links page.
Getting The Dirt On Column (Added 1/29/2012)
We welcome a new column to our Articles section this year. Author Mike Poland will highlight local racing heroes in his "Getting The Dirt On" monthly column.
Huge Expansion, Kart Coverage, and Other Enhancements (Added 4/1/2011)
dirtdrivers.com has made its largest expansion ever! We have stretched our coverage area in every direction. As can be seen on our updated coverage map on our home page, we have brought in our fifth state by adding northern Kansas, and have pushed further north into South Dakota, further west into Colorado, and further east into Iowa. And due to popular demand, we are happy to announce that we have now added Kart racing to our supported classes, as well as support for tracks that run special-only events. To allow us to make further expansions with greater ease, we have redefined how we include coverage for tracks and classes. Please refer to our About Us page for all the details.
With all of the new affiliates, to keep things more manageable, we have also restructured all of our track and series related areas of the site, grouping them by state and series. And with so many series now on our site, our series information pages now display the full series names in addition to the acronyms to help identify them more clearly.
The addition of the new affiliates resulted in a few other changes needed on our message boards. With Karting Track Affiliates now having their own message boards, we have removed the previous Go-Karting Tracks board and changed the title of our "Racing Entertainment" board to "Racing Recreation" to still accommodate discussions for indoor and other non-dirt track karting. We also added Motorcycles and Quads to the title of our Off-Road message board, and have also created a new Demo Derby message board to provide a convenient location for the discussions of these classes not directly supported on our site.
We wish a warm welcome to all of our 33 new affiliates! From Nebraska we have Level I Affiliates Cedar County Speedway in Hartington, Little Sunset Speedway in Greenwood, and Mini E Raceway in Eagle, and Level II Affiliate Custer County Fairgrounds in Broken Bow.
