By Doc Lehman

But before 2006 arrives the proponents of the show would like to acknowledge the listeners and guests who made 2005 so special.

"During this wonderful time of year I would like to take the opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,” stated Dave Seay, co-host of Dirt Nation™. “2005 has been a marvelous year for Dirt Nation™ with a lot of firsts for the show. From our first visit to Eldora and the DTWC, to our first ever broadcast on the road at Motorsports 2005 and our first road trip to a track, Wayne County Speedway and the creation of our new website. Along the way I have enjoyed the opportunity to meet some of very loyal listeners of which we couldn't do without.”

“It’s all about the listeners,” added Doc Lehman, co-host of Dirt Nation™. “On behalf of my wife, kids and grandkids we would like to wish each and everyone in the racing community a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year as well and hope that everyone can spend that special Christmas Day with family, friends and loved ones.”

“2005 was a terrific year for us on the show. The response and outpouring of support from the listeners has been tremendous and Dave and I are amazed, surprised and especially grateful to everyone who tunes in each week. Gearing the show towards the guests and listeners is the key to the show’s success and we appreciate their support and interest. We had about 275 guests on during 2005 and each and everyone was special and we thank them for spending time with us.”

"We couldn't have had such a wonderful year without the help of our sponsors like Virginia Motor Speedway, DirtAmericaOnline.com, Slavic Custom T-Shirt Designs, JD3 Graphics Lettering and Design and especially Lucas Oil,” commented Seay. “Forest Lucas and his staff have allowed us to expand what we are trying to accomplish with Dirt Nation™ and for that we are greatly appreciative. All I can say is just wait and see what 2006 has to offer!"

“And a big thanks to Chuck Hall at Racetalklive,” interjected Lehman. “This show wouldn’t exist without Chuck Hall’s belief in the show as well as his support, encouragement and professionalism. His station, WLRT 1490 and Racetalklive are important to dirt racing and Dave and I are grateful for his investment and commitment to dirt racing and motorsports in general.”

When the new year rolls around there will be some experimenting with the format as the hosts hope to bring more news to the listeners in addition to even more guests. New segments will be introduced and during the 2006 racing season there will be several fan promotions implemented that are currently being negotiated.

The show will also go back ‘on the road’ in 2006 for several special events including the upcoming Motorsports 2006 presented by VP Racing Fuels held in Ft. Washington, PA January 13-15. The show is also confirmed to return to the 26th Annual Dirt Track World Championship at KC Raceway and a handful of promoters are currently working with Dirt Nation™ to bring the show to their tracks and special events throughout the 2006 season.

Tentatively slated are Dirt's Brian Carter, Tonya Moschelle, Shane Carson, Billy Moyer, Billy Decker, Bret Emrick and more TBA.

“To bottom-line it, we’d like to thank those who tune in and put up with our goofiness,” commented Lehman. “We're just a couple of bums trying to have fun. We ain't curing cancer or anything important, just trying to bring the personalities and newsmakers of the sport to the listeners so they, and we, can get to know them and if we can all clown around a little and have some positive fun on occasion, why not?”

2nd Annual Dirt Nation™ presented by Lucas Oil Driver of the Year Championship Announced

By Doc Lehman

The popular dirt racing radio program, Dirt Nation™ presented by Lucas Oil and the Lucas Oil Company have teamed up to once again present the 2nd Annual Dirt Nation™ presented by Lucas Oil Driver of the Year Championship with a couple minor tweaks implemented since last year. Lucas Oil is a well-known motorsports supporter based in California and the title sponsor of Dirt Nation™. Dirt Nation™ presented by Lucas Oil airs every Monday evening from 8:00 – 10:00 PM EST at: www.racetalklive.com

“This year we’ve expanded the program, which was very well accepted last year,’ stated Doc Lehman, co-host of Dirt Nation™. “Where last year we only awarded a dirt Late Model driver, Dennis Erb of Illinois, this year, with Lucas Oil once again demonstrating their generosity, we will have three ‘Driver of the Year’ awards that will cover not only a dirt Late Model driver but a Sprint Car and Modified driver as well.”

The winners will each receive $1,000 cash, a championship jacket and trophy from Lucas Oil. Additionally, each winner will also receive a Hoosier Racing Tire jacket from Hoosier Tire Midwest and a one-year subscription to Area Auto Racing News. The winning dirt Late Model driver will also be awarded a ‘graphics wrap’ from Panther Motorsports Design. Additional prizes will be added over the coming weeks.

The winners will be announced on Saturday January 14, 2006 during a live Dirt Nation™ presented by Lucas Oil broadcast from the Motorsports 2006 presented by VP Racing Fuels show in Ft. Washington, PA near Philadelphia. Each winner will appear on the show the following Monday evening for extended segments.

Fans will nominate the drivers in each division. The top six in each division who gather the most votes will then be submitted to a panel of professional motorsports media who will then vote on the winner of the 2nd Annual Dirt Nation™ presented by Lucas Oil Driver of the Year Championship for dirt Late Models, Sprint Cars and Modifieds. Fans can submit their nominee, based on performance during 2005, by emailing: dirtnationradio@yahoo.com or mailing their nominee to: Dirt Nation™, P.O. Box 341, Smithville, OH 44677. The deadline for nominating a driver is December 31, 2005.

"I am very excited with the new format for choosing the Dirt Nation / Lucas Oil Drivers of the Year,” commented Dave Seay, co-host of Dirt Nation™. “To be able to expand the program to not only include the Super Late Model division but to also be able to have the Big Block Modifieds and Sprint Cars involved is a major step, one we could not have taken without Forest Lucas and the folks at Lucas Oil."

"It will again be a blast to debut the winners at the Motorsports 2006 presented by VP Racing Fuels once again,” added Lehman. “It’s an honor and we have to thank Lenny Sammons, Joe Pratt and the staff for allowing us to be a part of that tremendous show for another year.”

"There are a dozen or more deserving drivers in each category, I do not envy our panel of experts that will have to narrow down the fields and choose the winners,” continued Seay. "This is an opportunity for Dirt Nation™ and Lucas Oil to give back to the competitors that work so very hard to provide great racing and entertainment to the thousands of fans that pack short tracks all over the country and have success at it as well."

Dirt Nation™ presented by Lucas Oil is hosted each Monday evening by Dave Seay and Doc Lehman and airs from 8:00 – 10:00 PM EST and can be accessed over the internet at: http://www.racetalklive.com Dirt Nation™ presented by Lucas Oil is co-sponsored by Virginia Motor Speedway, Dirt America Online, Slavic Custom Shirts, JD3Graphics and Lehman Motorsports Services.
