Ed Dixon from Washington Mo is getting closer to 600 wins in his career!

The mid 50's Dixon has 591 feature wins and still has the desire to win
even though his career is almost to a close!

The 04' Hall of Fame Inductee still puts on a show week in and week out,
love him or hate him the man sure can wheel a latemodel!

Ed don't win as much as he used to and the results haven't been so hot in
recent years, but you can bet your money every driver still has in the back
of their mind that Dixon is hot on their tale. He is the only older driver I
have ever seen run up top the way he does, he hates to run the bottom, and
if his spoiler isn't broke at the end of the night somethings wrong!

Ed runs on friday nights at Belle-Clair Speedway in Belleville IL and I-55
Raceway in Pevely MO on saturday nights, come out and show your
respect for the Hall of Famer on his road to 600 wins. Ed also runs his
crate car on certain weekends and might not be at these tracks on certain
