    Thumbs up Colossal 100 returns to The Dirt Track at Charlotte in 2022

    Colossal 100 returns to The Dirt Track at Charlotte in 2022

    https://www.charlottemotorspeedway.c...152GoozzIbzCFE


    IF THE LINK DOESN'T WORK FOR YOU HERE IS THE INFO.

    In a short four-year span from 2006-2009, the Colossal 100 from the Dirt Track at Charlotte grew into a powerhouse Super Late Model crown jewel on the schedule of many top teams across the nation. Scott Bloomquist, Steve Francis and Earl Pearson Jr. were among the titans of dirt to find their way to victory lane. In 2022, the Colossal 100 returns in a big way, from May 8-14.

    Officials from Charlotte Motor Speedway and XR Events have reached an agreement to revive the Colossal 100 and support it with a showcase of local grassroots classes, headlined by the Super Late Models, with a format similar to the XR Events promoted Bristol Dirt Nationals, Texas Dirt Nationals and the Duel in the Desert.

    Complete details of the Colossal 100V will be released at a later date at www.racexr.com.
    Nathan Stephens: Hobart (Northwest), Indiana.

    Next race(s): Kokomo (IN) - Kokomo Klash - October 15th & 16th. Winchester (IN) - Winchester 400 - 10/17

    Are all these week long races really necessary. And why does this dude feel the need to schedule these races on top of Lucas races?

    He will eventually lose if he keeps scheduling races on top of Lucas Oil. That's my opinion.

    Its Charlotte, so itll probably be 5,000 to win, 300 to start, 100 laps of wide open racing through holes....... but itll be in charlotte so people will knock the gates down to get in that place

    They were great. And they scheduled them during a time of the year when not much else was going on with touring series.

    This new event looks destined to fail in terms of quality LM's showing up, but apparently week long events using lower divisions to fund the LM purses is working or else they wouldn't continue to do it. More power to em I guess.

    If it is 50g to win, and the track is anything other than a complete sh*thole, I will take my crow medium rare

    Poultry and fowl should be done a little more than that……but I think he’s going to have to serve you some.
    That show will probably be good if not great.

    I hope they do schedule on top of Lucas Oil. That way some local driver can win $50,000.

    Since when were national touring guys with the exception in recent years of Brandon Overton only allowed to win $50k races?

    With all the extra classes it's nothing more than a back gate show for the promotors. The smith's and wheeler's see it and throw money at it. They could care less if it's scheduled against anyone. More reasons in 2022 you won't see Overton on tour, why should he, and I think you'll see more do the same. The dirt track at Charlotte has had a terrible surface the last 2 years, if they don't get that problem taken care of it won't be a good time for ahybody.
