    I wonder if a no dirt racing contract clause is coming

    If that happens, he'll be a full time World of Outlaws driver.

    Yeah, I think that is at least partial BS.....every zero they put on the backside of that offer is one less dirt race he is willing to run. He already compromises himself by being in Cup anyway. Same deal with Bell IMO. I don't think either one of them is willing to give up their mansions (Bell's on the way I'm sure) for their hobby.

    You really believe that? I don't. The Cup money is real.

    Larson's been in worse wrecks. He'll continue to do what he's been doing.

    Larson is young enough he needs to either focus on dirt or cup racing. He could easily sign a 5 year deal, make that money, and when he’s fulfilled his obligation go run dirt full time if that’s what he wants. I really think he only runs this series for a paycheck which is a shame

    If he wasn't driven by the dollar bills, he would be full time dirt. The "real racer" thing is a romantic idea really....but fans like the idea that he would drive without the glitz and glamour....

    I completely agree. There is a part of me that really can't but into a guy that is only kind of there....and he results relative to his talent show that.

    Seeing both of them down on the track after the wreck is kind of scary. I know this stuff happens all the time, but it still gets to me. When running with those low concrete walls the driver is really exposed on these flips. Thankfully they both flipped away from the wall.

    Yeah, it's interesting to me that when a Cup driver smashes into a Safer-barrierless wall, and gets hurt, there is justifiable outrage about driver safety. However, when these guys go race at tracks like this, they are "real racers". Stupid. Larson has a wife and kids. No need to list the drivers who have died at unsafe tracks in the name of being "real racers". Clearly, I don't get it so I'm not a "real race fan" I guess. Whatevs.

    Bell crashing right after Larson. Tough night for 2 of the best in the dirt business. Glad both are ok.

    He definitely loves racing on dirt and is one of the best at it. Why else would he choose to spend 2 of the major holidays Thanksgiving / Christmas away from home at a race track doing what racers love to do...Race. He is the main reason I choose to spend about $350.00 and Thanksgiving away from home at a dirt race in Ventura Ca each year.:)

    Here is a long shot of Bell's wreck. Tough breaks for team USA.

    I'm just glad that they are both OK. I'm scared their next contracts will prohibit racing outside of Nascar sanctioned events when I see this.
    No way Larson or Bell are here for the money. They love dirt.

    And of course whomever does well at Western Springs, New Zealand at Christmas often wins at the Chili Bowl.

    I had to work yesterday unfortunately and couldn't be there. I'm literally a 10 minute drive from my home to the track.
    They head to Tauranga tomoro to race and I'll hopefully watch them next week when they are back here.

    Hmm and Pickens won the thing. He has been running quite a few races this year in the U.S. also and we know he loves to run the Chili Bowl. Had to be a popular win at Springs between NZ, Aus and the USA

    That was the feature win last night. And yeah in front of a home crowd it had to be a popular win.

    But it's the winner of the 50 Lapper King of the Springs on Jan. 5th that I'll be watching.
    Bell, Pickens and Larson will be in that.

    Wrecks like these 2 are the reason that a lot owners at the top level don't allow their drivers to do stuff like this. I know if I were paying someone a couple million a year plus having a whole shop full of employees whos job depends on my driver I wouldn't want to see him tumbling down a dirt track.

    I get it Larson likes this stuff and hes one heck of a talent, but IMO that wreck may have just lowered his free agency stock.

    He pretty much does have one. Both Bell and Larson aren't racing for Kuntz/Curb Racing this year in the Chili Bowl. Bell is driving a Billy Boat built car and Larson is driving his own, built by Paul Silva. 7 wins and a 4th so far for Larson

    there are little or no rules for the chili bowl,so a lot of teams build cars just for this race.

    I would think with 7 wins and a 4th so far, his team will figure out what is needed for the Chili Bowl. FYI he hasn't been racing scrub races and getting cheap wins. 3 in a row Bell has raced also in many of them and he isn't winning.
