What's Happening at Dirty Girl Racewear!
Racing Roots January 27 2019
Dirty Girl Racewear was founded in 2012. As a small company with big goals, we were ready to see if the race world loved our products as much as we do. Fast forward six and half years to today and our small company is still small, yet it has grown into something bigger than we could have ever imagined. Here at Dirty Girl Racewear, we are proud of all our products and of all the connections we make, and will continue to make with our amazing customers nationwide. A lot has changed in the last six years for us, but one thing that definitely hasn’t changed is our love for dirt track racing.
We are kicking our year off in just a few short days and are excited to see all of our customers. The track is one of our favorite places to be! Part of our kick off will be spent at the Winter Nationals at East Bay Raceway Park in Tampa, FL. Near the track is where a very influential person to DGR family lives. That person is Larry Aldrich, my grandpa and our company's founder and face, Sonya Loose’s, dad. He raced for over 42 years and has been inducted into the Michigan Motorsports Hall of Fame. He is the reason all of us have fallen in love with this wonderful and exciting sport.
While we travel the country visiting various tracks, his inspiration will always follow and every once in a while he may even be there himself.
Bring on 2019!!
2018 PRI Trade Show & Lucas Oil Banquet - A Success! December 17 2018
The 2018 PRI Trade Show was a success, especially for us at Dirty Girl Racewear. Not only did the Dirty Girl Racewear team enjoy the PRI show, we also were able to attend the Lucas Oil Dirt Late Model Series banquet.
While attending the PRI show (held in Indianapolis each year), we were able to see many of our business partners as well as visit with numerous race friends from across the country.
Being involved in the Performance Racing Industry, it is essential for us to make time to attend the PRI Trade show. Not only is this trade show important for us as a vendor and a Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Marketing Partner, there are also multiple seminars that take place at this Trade Show that are invaluable.
PRI Education 2018
Chandler up and around bright & early for PRI Education offerings
Some of the seminars are on topics that we are well versed in and others are on topics that are new to us. The seminars on topics that we are somewhat unfamiliar with really make our 6 hour trip worth it. This year we took a class about the accounting side of the business as well as a marketing seminar.
For the first time, our Dirty Girl Racewear team was invited to attend the Lucas Oil Dirt Late Model series banquet.

Racer websites also offer a great way to show sponsors what they are getting if they are associated with your race team.

Most companies offering driver websites will make the process as simple as possible for you, helping you with your content, graphic design options, and even help brand your entire race team! Expect to pay at least $250 for this amazing gift but wow what a gift it could be.
We are so excited for the 2015 Race Season! Things have calmed down here at Dirty Girl Racewear since the busy Christmas Holiday is now behind us. This allowed us to time focus on the new designs for 2015. We've brought out 4 new designs and there will be more to come. We've added a new design to our Dirty Girl line in the form of a cool 3/4 length sleeve shirt! It is pink and has lime green stripes on the sleeve. The words Pretty Dirty adorn the front along with our logo. This design has been very well received by our fans on Facebook and is now in pre production. This shirt can be ordered now and is set to ship by 1/30/15. We do suggest upsizing one size if you want a fitted look and upsizing 2 sizes for a more comfy fit. The shirt is not a juniors but does tend to fit that way. Available in Small through 4XL. The cost of the shirt is $27. This shirt is great because it will be perfect for any race fan...weather you love the Dirt Late Model, Dirt Modified or the Compacts or Sprints this shirt applies!
We've added 2 new designs to our Dirt Guy line. The first is a front printed design that says My Blood Type is Dirt. We think this design is pretty bad ass and think the guys will all have to have one. I bet more than a few ladies add this to their wardrobe too! This is printed on a unisex black t-shirt and will be available in sizes Medium through 3XL. The cost is $20. This item is in pre production and can be ordered now. It is set to ship by 1/30/15. This item runs very true to size! This is another design in our collection that works for any dirt track race fan!
The second design was made with the Dirt Late Model Fan in mind. It features the American flag for a patriotic feel and says Live Free, Race Hard on both the front and the back. The patriotic design continues onto the back where you find the racy dirty late model and the even racier sexy lady who adorns the shirt. This item is in pre production and can be ordered now. It is set to ship by 1/30/15. This item runs very true to size! The cost on this shirt will be $20 and is available from Medium to 3XL
We are also offering a new design for the little ladies! The Lil' Dirt Kids line has a new shirt that is in pre-production too. This design is extra special because it is a collaboration with Sonya's life long friend, Heather. Heather Sailer is a graphic designer and lives in Philadelphia, PA. It was an incredible opportunity for the two friends to work together. We hope that more designs for the line can be brought out featuring Heather's artwork. This design will be front printed on Youth size T-Shirts and is in pre-production now. The shirts will sell for $17 and will be available in Youth Sizes XS-XL.
Visit the website www.dirtygirlracewear.com to see the entire line of apparel or visit the pop up shop at one of your local race tracks! First stop for 2015 is at The Superbowl of Racing at Golden Isle Speedway followed by Winter Nationals at East Bay Raceway Park, both in February.

Dirt Late Model Clothing for Ladies November 18 2013
As with all ideas, Dirty Girl Racewear was nothing more than a thought in my head at one time. I was inspired by a t-shirt that was for dirt bike enthusiasts! I just couldn't stop thinking about that shirt and how there was a need for race shirts geared towards the younger demographic (18-45) in dirt late model racing, which is my passion. I felt there was a need for a more hip, edgy, and just down right cooler race shirt. Well, the first design was released last year just before Christmas and since then we have literally sold to thousand of race fans, traveled all over the south and eastern states and as they say the rest is history! Since I am a woman I wanted one of these shirts too and changed the design a bit to incorporate everything I love. This included the awesome dirt late model race car on the shirt, a pink color scheme and a diamond (a girl's best friend right?!). Some of you may not have even noticed the "i" in Girl is dotted with a diamond! To my surprise the Dirty Girl ladies t-shirts are typically the best seller at the races we attend and online as well. The dirt late model racing t-shirt for ladies, Dirty Girl, is now available in a ladies cut t-shirt, a warm and cozy hoodie, a long sleeve shirt and tank top. You can also get a can cooler with the design, decals, as well as bottle cap necklaces and gorgeous custom lockets. There is something in every price point from $1.50 to $46 available. The Dirty Girl design will most likely always be our flag ship shirt and will remain near and dear to my heart. I guess you can say I am truly The Dirty Girl....
I hope to see you at a race track in the 2014 season, but if I don't you can still be a Dirty Girl by going online and purchasing your Dirty Girl Dirt Late Model Racing gear at www.dirtygirlracewear.com.

A Piece of History about Dirty Girl Racewear November 14 2013
If you've ever wondered what Dirty Girl Racewear is all about and why we started this business you are about to find out!
As a piece of history I thought I would share this picture. My love of racing began years ago when my Dad raced dirt late model cars. Here I am at the age of about 7 or 8 helping him. Dirty Girl Racewear wouldn't have been possible without my Dad having race for 40+ years!
