TRIBUTE TO JEFF DAHLE

Friend & sponsor of the Dirt Show and big supporter of dirt racing in Southern Minnesota, Jeff Dahle of Morristown, MN, passed away on May 25th. He was 56 years-old.

He will be missed by everyone that was lucky enough to know him. Jeff was a guy everyone could count on and had a huge heart!

You can read Jeff's full obituary here.

Jeff requested that his friends and family dig his grave site by hand. So they gladly honored that request. Unknown to them, Jeff had buried a bottle of Windsor for all of those digging that day to find. The note on the bottle read: “Have a drink on me. It’s been a pleasure to know each and every one of you!"

He had a great sense of humor. On the side of his high school Demolition Derby car, he once wrote “Wanted: Girlfriend! Apply in person in the pits after the Demo.” Jeff was one-of-a-kind.

Here's our final Dirt Show interview with Jeff Dahle from the summer of 2018.
