Ohio, the heart of it all
I've lived in Ohio in all my 44 years and never really like being a Buckeye. However when it comes to dirt late model racing, Ohio is the place to be. Look at the crown jewel races that are in the Buckeye state: The Dream, The World, The DTWC, and finally The Hillbilly. Finally something to be proud of being a Buckeye and not the embarrassment of the Bengals, the Buckeyes, or the Cavaliers.
i've lived w.va. 66 years and 3 yrs. ala.glad to be a hillbilly where it all started at.
Wild and Wonderful!

Why would you not like being a Buckeye? Ohio is a great state, for many reasons, and I'm proud to say I called Germantown, Ohio home until I was 9 years old. If you're 44, then you remember the good times when Paul Brown was still running the Bengals, and OSU football has given you many, many more good years than bad.

You folks who have shorter drives to those shows are very lucky.
Ohio is the Heart of it All
I'm very proud to from the Buckeye State and proudly say that we have the best tracks and races. in dirt racing. Buckeyes know how to put on a show, and they always draw the cars and crowds. I think if the Hillbilly 100 stays at PRP for a couple years,,, that it will again become one of the premier races of the year. Ecellent facility, lots of room. Give it time and support it.
I also think Souhern Ohio Speedway if given a lil time, will come back to being the "fast Half" one again, wouldnt it be awesome to bring the "Southern 100" back.
Come support these new ventures and see for yourself that Ohio is "the Heart of it All"
