In our first 'Bullring Minute' of the 2024 racing season, Alan Dietz spoke with Ron Barfield, owner of Dillon Motor Speedway. This weekend, Dillon Motor Speedway hosts the 14th Annual New Year's Bash, headlined by a $2,500-to-win Street Stock race drawing competitors from all over the country.

“This race is what you call your weekend warrior Daytona 500," said Barfield. "These are the guys working on their race cars, changing their spark plugs, they drive the haulers to the race track. It’s not like a driver flies in and drives the race car. This is a weekend warrior’s Daytona 500, and that’s why this race has gotten so big.”

You can watch the full video below to hear more from Barfield, including the contingency plan in place should inclement weather occur this weekend and how you can watch the event live on Racing America.
