Gateway Dirt Photos – Tuesday
Some of the very first Gateway Dirt photos are posted below.
I was at the Edwards Jones Dome all day today as the staff puts the final prep work into the racing surface. This weekend, will probably be the biggest dirt track race of the year. You’re seeing the first images of the brand new track.
The Gateway Dirt Nationals conducted the very first on-track test today. Test drivers were local boys. Kenny Wallace driving a dirt modified and Gordy Gundaker driving a dirt late model. We were there along, shooting photos as well as video of the Gateway Dirt track test.
Watch: Cars on Track for the First Time at the Gateway Dirt Nationals
You’ll have to forgive the poor lighting. Operators of The Dome building have yet to turn on all the lights for the Gateway Dirt crew. These yellow lights are just the track setup lights. They haven’t yet turned on the main power switch. When the rest of the lights on turned on come Thursday, the yellow hue will disappear.
Side-by-side action will be fantastic this weekend. Kevin Gundaker and the Gateway Dirt Nationals have really put in the effort to bring the drivers and fans a fantastic show.
Racing at the Edward Jones Dome begins on Thursday. The dirt late model and dirt modified drivers will also hit the track on Friday. Saturday is the main event. 3 solid days of fantastic dirt racing action in the middle of December.
