Deegan on Bristol Dirt:

Will your time on the Las Vegas dirt track translate into racing in Bristol?

“The Las Vegas Dirt Track and the Bristol Dirt Track are going to have two completely different feelings. Vegas Dirt feels and looks completely different because it gets so dry there. There’s a very noticeable difference in the colors of the Dirt – Vegas Dirt is a lot lighter When you get to the trail of where they’re bringing the dirt in, it’s more like clay and holds the moisture so much better. “

What is the noticeable difference between dirt and pavement for you?

“Dirt is hard and very uncomfortable for people who are used to driving on sidewalks. People who have driven on a lot of dirt feel uncomfortable. The road surface is super smooth and there is a lot of grip little out of control, but you try to be precise. ”
