We've added regulars too, Trophy Queen has run since issue 2, while the Who, What, Where interviews have been in the magazine since issue 3.
The idea is an amateur dirt track racer (normally Dave Skooter Farm, sometimes me) interviews a pro racer for tips on a specific aspect of racing. It involves us tracking down a racer, and extracting some learned-the-hard-way knowledge out of them, then writing it up, then sending it to illustrator, Ryan Quickfall who does further research, even photographing to get the positions right, sending sketched ideas back and forth to me, then producing the final coloured artwork. And that produces two pages of the the 116 we serve up four times a year.
These are the subjects, and experts, and the issue they appear in...
21 Get the Holeshot with Johnny Lewis
22 How to Crash with David Aldana
23 Draft to Victory with Bryan Smith
24 Short Track badassery with Briar Bauman
25 Body English with Chris Carr
If you like magazines made with love and care, perhaps think about buying Sideburn magazine from sideburn.bigcartel.com. We'd appreciate it. G
