Seems that racing on dirt ovals is all the rage now in the Jalopnik community, which is why we're bummed out that we couldn't get some folks to come down to The Dirt Track at Charlotte to see how we roll here. No worries, though—we won't hold it against you (too much). :)

Three rounds of heat races (two for Supercars, one for GRC Lites) on Friday night set the stage for today's race action. Ken Block and Subaru Rally Team USA were yesterday's big winners, with Block backing up his top seed with two heat wins and Subaru drivers Bucky Lasek and Sverre Isachsen backing it up with a heat win apiece. It was actually Bucky's first heat win ever as a Red Bull GRC driver. (Can we get a #BuckYeah?)
