Often overlooked in the mainstream, dirt track racing is perhaps the most exciting form of automobile racing in North America. Dirt track racing is done on over 1, tracks throughout the United States. In the s and 30s, dirt track racing became the dominant form of automobile racing in the United States due to the abundance of thoroughbred horse racing tracks. There have been traditionally two types of racing cars that have dominated dirt track racing: open wheel cars—including sprint cars and modifieds, which are primarily run in the Northeast and Midwest—and stock cars, which are raced in the South. Longer length tracks tend to be more dangerous due to higher speeds, which increase the chance for injury to drivers and damage to race cars. This is why dirt tracks of one mile or more in length are extremely rare. The most common dirt track surface is clay because it retains moisture more readily, which results in more tacky conditions, allowing the cars to grip the track better and reduce dust.
