Dove Motorsports

Coming out of retirement to live the dream once again.

I-30 Speedway

It truly hurts my heart to type this, but our beloved Donna Jones passed on this morning. She’s been a fixture out at the track for as long as we’ve owned it. Her smile lit up the room and her wit - for those of you that knew her, you know what I mean. I-30 won’t be the same.
Please keep her husband David (who takes the tickets at the front gate) in your prayers. Prayers for the rest of her family too. Throw an extra prayer in for those of us who worked with her too please. It’s gonna be tough.

[04/12/19]   Prayers for Taylor Crawley Please!

Good afternoon Dove Motorsports Fans!
Hope to see everyone tomorrow from 8 - 2 at our sell out!

See you tomorrow 😉🏁🏁

UPDATE;
Been way busy trying to get everything ready for the big sale Saturday. I had no idea we had accumulated so much stuff in 3 years.
I’m offering everything to my local friends first, but after Saturday it’s gonna be posted everywhere so come on out Saturday 10/27 from 8 - 2 and get some great deals.

UPDATE:
Had a great time at Mark Martin’s Race For Hope 74.
Thanks to Mitchell Niemi and the Dove Motorsports Crew for all their hard work.
We came up a little short of our goal of making the show but had a good 5th place finish in the states race to end our week.

I also want to thank our sponsors that stepped up to the plate and allowed us to make the trip in the first place!

After much prayer and many sleepless nights we have decided to bring Dove Motorsports to a close.
It’s been a great 3 years and we knew it was temporary when we started.
I thank God every day for giving me one last opportunity to live my dream.

Thank You to all our new friends and family we have made over the past 3 years and we’re not going anywhere.
We’ll be in the stands eating a Frito Chili Pie at a track near you!

We are planning a complete sell out on Saturday 10/27/18. More details to follow.

Much Love to you all !

UPDATE;
Good morning Dove Motorsports Fans!
Been having a great time in Batesville at the Race for Hope!
Mitchell Niemi has been doing a great job in the 49 this week. We’ve struggled with the right setup at times and if you’re just a little off it shows up big time when you’re running with the best in the country!
We think we finally hit it last night as Mitch came from 7th to 4th in the C main before getting a tire cut down.
After further investigation we discovered a bent tie rod and burnt clutch disc in the transmission.
Oh well that’s racing!
Hope to see everyone tonight as we have our last shot at making the big show on Saturday.
Special Thanks to all our sponsors and our amazing crew that’s worked their butts off all week!

UPDATE;
Good evening Dove Motorsports Fans!
Well it’s finally here. Time to lock and load and head out tomorrow morning for Mark Martin’s Race for Hope 74.
Special thanks to Mitchell Niemi and the Larry Shaw Race Cars crew for all their hard work!
Qualifying starts tomorrow night with racing Wednesday thru Saturday.
Come join us and see the best Modified drivers in the country from 25 states compete for $20,000 to win.
If you can’t make it you can catch it on IMCA TV 📺
Couldn’t do it without all our great sponsors!
Prayers for safe travels for all our racing brothers and sisters 🙏🏁🏁

Y’all come help support the California Kid!

UPDATE;
Good afternoon Race Fans!
So what happens when you wind the rubber band a little too tight?
Mitchell Niemi was looking very smooth at practice last night when the rubber band broke!
Can’t thank Mitchell, Larry Shaw and the whole Larry Shaw Race Cars crew for the new bullet and all their help!
She should be ready to roll for the Race For Hope 74. 9/25 - 9/29
Hope to see you there!

Not the night we wanted last night at the Batesville Motor Speedway.
Motor problems plagued us all night from hot laps to the A main.
We are glad we went to use the night as a test n tune so now we know what to work on.
Mitchell Niemi did a great job and didn’t put a scratch on it so we can focus on our motor issues.
Thanks again to all our great sponsors!
🏁🏁🏁

UPDATE;
Good morning Dove Motorsports Fans!
Just thought I’d catch you up on what’s happening in the world of 49!
Thanks to Mitchell Niemi and Larry Shaw Race Cars we are ready to try her new legs out tomorrow night 8/31 at the Batesville Motor Speedway.
We’re really looking forward to Mark Martin’s Race For Hope 74 coming up at Batesville 9/25 - 9/29. Some of the best drivers and crews from all over the country will be there so we are trying to get as many laps in on the track before hand as we can.
We wouldn’t be able to make the trip at all if it wasn’t for our amazing sponsors stepping up to the plate. They had already met their obligation for the season and still wanted us to make the trip.

[08/05/18]   UPDATE;
I woke up this morning wondering if I’d been dreaming.
I am stunned by the outpouring of well wishes and fan support that I received last night after announcing my retirement.
I said a prayer as I strapped in for the last time and asked God to give me one more good run and he delivered.
I came from 6th to 3rd in the B main and was comfortably in a transfer spot when the racer in me took over. I went for a opening to take the lead on the white flag lap and as the opening closed contact sent me into the tires.
I want to thank Tracey Clay and the I-30 crew for giving us a perfect track surface to race on and allowing me a polish victory lap to say goodbye.
Thank You James Berry for all your kind words. 🙏
And as Bob Seger would say;
TURN THE PAGE 👋❤️🏁

UPDATE;
Good morning Dove Motorsports Fans!
This is a bittersweet post I’m writing as I have made the decision that this Saturday night 8/4/18 will be my last time behind the wheel of my beloved 49 car.
Father Time has got the best of me and it’s become obvious that I can no longer be competitive.
I hope to still be involved as a car owner if the funding is available and plan to finish the 2018 season with my good friend Mitchell Niemi as my driver.
I need to thank some special people who have helped me over the last 3 years try and live my dream once again.
Robert Baker, Charlie Armstrong, Drew Armstrong, Richard Lynch, and many many others.
I especially want to thank my baby brother Mark Dove and the Dove Motorsports Crew for all their patience and hard work. They’ve been by my side through thick and thin.
There would have never been a Dove Motorsports without all my great sponsors. I’m continually blown away by their support. Thank You!
And last but not least I want to thank my family and my wife Joan for believing in me when I didn’t believe in myself.
As hard of a decision as this is, I know in my heart it’s the right one.
I’ll always be a race fan as it runs deep in my blood. Always has Always will.
Hope to see you all Saturday at the I-30 Speedway for the Comp Cams Late Model Show! ❤️🏁

UPDATE;
Had a great time Saturday night at the I-30 Speedway’s Ed Jordan Memorial Race!
Really enjoyed spending the weekend with my friends Mitchell Niemi, Rick, Lanette, and Sierra Branson.
Mother Nature threw us a curveball Friday night with all the rain and had us and everyone else searching for the right setup after being really fast Thursday.
We were expecting a big car count but had no idea of the caliber of drivers that would come for 3k to win.
After several major adjustments we were much better but still a few spots from making the A main.
Mitchell did a great job in the B finishing 4th out of 20 cars and loaded the car back in the trailer with almost no damage!
Congratulations to our buddy Drew Armstrong and the 01A crew for winning the A and representing our local drivers against some of the best in the country!

UPDATE;
Wake up it’s Race Day Dove Motorsports Fans!
If you don’t see another race all year you’ll wanna come out to the I-30 Speedway tonight for the 6th annual Ed Jordan Memorial IMCA Modified Race!
I’m expecting 45 - 50 of the best IMCA Modified drivers in the country!
My good friend, Mitchell Niemi (The California Kid) has flown in from Santa Ysabel to pilot the 49 car for me tonight. Mitchell was here Thursday night for practice and looked really good. (See video)
Also along with the 3k to win Modified race will be a 2k to win factory stock race. 2 great races for the price of one!
The action gets started at 7:30 so come on out, bring a friend and enjoy some great racing and some of Wayne Smith’s awesome catfish!

Mitchell Niemi Racing

This time next week we’ll be back in Arkansas once again behind the wheel of the 49 car for Euel Dove. 3k to win on Saturday at I-30. Can’t thank Euel Dove and Dove Motorsports enough and all my sponsors for everything they do!

Larry Shaw Race Cars

Please pray for Larry and his family!
🙏🙏🙏

Larry will be going in for Colon Cancer Surgery tomorrow.
He had this about 3 years ago and it has came back again.
We would ask that you would pray for a good surgery and recovery.
My prayer for my dad this week has been that the Holy Spirit would give him peace through this procedure.
Thanks to all of you for the support you have given our family over the last few years.
We have nothing but confidence that all will go well for dad.
Thanks Kevin Shaw

I-30 Speedway

UPDATE;
Not the night we wanted to have last night at 67 Speedway in Texarkana. Got bounced around like a ping pong ball all night and tore up lots of good equipment.
It’s amazing what some folks will do when the stakes are raised.
Can’t say enough about my awesome crew! Mark, Josh, Roger and even Joan worked their tails off all night just to keep giving me another shot. Now to give her a bath and assess all the damage but we’ll get her back together and head back to a track near you very soon!
Thanks again to all our great sponsors, cause this can get very expensive! 😜

UPDATE;
Just wanted to take a minute to update Dove Motorsports Fans.
Been taking a little time off to regroup and plan our future endeavors.
First I need to Thank Mitchell Niemi for coming to town for the Scrapp Fox Memorial Race and piloting the 49 car for me. He did a great job and we were all impressed! The Mitchell Niemi Racing crew will be back for the Ed Jordan Memorial Race on 7/20 - 7/21 and we can’t wait!
In the meantime we plan to run the July 4th Race at 67 Speedway in Texarkana.
Come on out and see a great show put on by some really good folks!
We wouldn’t be able to run any of these shows without our amazing sponsors so please go by and use their services and tell them thanks for supporting Dove Motorsports and local dirt track racing!

[06/13/18]   UPDATE;
Good evening Dove Motorsports Fans,
The 2018 season has been a roller coaster ride to say the least. Hopefully with the motor issues behind us we can focus on fine tuning the chassis.
Please come out to the I-30 Speedway this Saturday night for the Scrapp Fox Memorial Race and watch some of the best IMCA Modified drivers in the country.
Also I need you to show some southern hospitality to my California friends Mitchell Niemi, Rick, Lanette, and Sierra Branson as my buddy Mitchell will be the pilot 👨‍✈️ in the 49 car.
Mitchell has been very successful on the west coast and I hope to put him in a fast ride Saturday night!
Hope to see you there at 7:30! 🏁🏁🏁

If you ordered shirts and haven’t picked them up yet,
the clock is ticking! ⏱🏁

Good morning Dove Motorsports Fans!
We’ll be sitting out one more week while we wait on parts to come in but we’ll be there at the I-30 Speedway watching some great racing and eating some of Wayne Smith’s awesome catfish!

If you ordered shirts I’ll have them with me tonight. I plan to make a pass through the pits on my 4 wheeler before the races and in the turn 1 stands after that.
Shirts are $20 and I’ll have several extras with me sizes M - XL with one 3X
Hope to see you all tonight!
