List of Dirt Track Ovals in The United States

Dirt track racing is the single most common form of auto racing in the United States. There are over 1900 racetracks in the United States and Canada.

On many tracks you will find clay is used with a specific mixture of dirt. Tracks are sometimes banked in the turns for a smoother ride around the track. However, some tracks prefer less banked turns because it suits the drivers who participate at their venue weekly. Each track surface will most often be different in one way or another.

    Do your children view themselves as successes or failures? Are they being encouraged to be inquisitive or passive? Are they afraid to challenge authority and to question assumptions? Do they feel comfortable adapting to change? Are they easily discouraged if they cannot arrive at a solution to a problem? The answers to those questions will give you a better appraisal of their education than any list of courses, grades, or test scores.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

    The gold-digger in the ravines of the mountains is as much a gambler as his fellow in the saloons of San Francisco. What difference does it make whether you shake dirt or shake dice? If you win, society is the loser.

This differs from the already familiar English version in being more extreme and based more firmly on the conviction that the class to which the speaker belongs is inherently superior to all others.
    John Kenneth Galbraith (b. 1908)
