Devin Eierman driving the 6-car came out this year fast and furious. Determined with his team, too end 2014 as the champion, ran into problems and troubles with no end in sight. Being the sportsman that he is, Devin still managed to make it to the next race, in-spite of complications from the previous event.
Devin ended the season with 413 points and took home the 8th place trophy. He is a veteran racer who had a tough start to 2014. He will definitely be a contender this year. It seemed like every time this team showed up to race they were on the trailer before time trials. They were fast but just did not get the right break. It was nearly unanimous this year, Devin and his team were voted and awarded the “Hard Luck Award”.
Pictured below is Devin and his very proud mom, Mrs. Eierman.
Scott Rinkel driving the 63-car came in 9th place with 308 points. It was Scotts 2nd year racing with Vintage Modifieds, who might have finished much higher in the standing had he not left in August to attend College. Best wishes to you Scott and we all send our best to you as you enjoy the time of life in College.
Cheater Dave Trapp in the 51-car took home 10th place. Dave ended the season with 198 points. Dave is a founding member of Vintage Modified and has been involved with racing for 28-years. Dave is highly regarded among his peers and it is always fun seeing Dave give ‘em hell on the track.
We look forward to seeing everyone in 2015. The racing schedule has been posted on the Racing Schedule / Events page. Information, for each race, is provided with links to a variety of sites. To the tracks, lodging, driving directions and/or weather. Time to start planning so the 2015 racing season is successful for the driving teams, families and friends and sponsors.

Chuck Peterson, owner of the 23-car, took home the 5th place trophy for the 2014 season. Jeff Peterson drove the 23-car this year while Chuck took over as crew chief. Together they make a great racing team. Chuck is one of the founding members of Vintage Modified. Chuck has won the Sportsmanship award in the past, due to his gentleman ways in the pits and for always being there to offer any team a lending hand when cars break down and parts are needed. Congratulations to the father and son team.
Mike Clother in the 7-car took home the 6th place trophy in 2014, ending his racing season with a total of 556 points. Mike has been involved with Vintage Modified for 19-years, and through out these 19-years Mike has been an active member of the board. Thank you Mike for all your years of service to Vintage Modified’s club and the members. Mike has 7-VMRA Championships under his belt and will be a top contender in 2015 too make it eight.
Tom Smitham drove the 32-car this year for car owner, Leonard Schmidt. Tom ended the season with a total of 551 points coming in 7th place. Even though he sometimes lacked engine power, Tom kept Leonard’s car competitive all year. In fact, this was one of the best racing seasons the 32-team has had in a long time. Tom made racing a challenge for every car on the track. Tom is owner and operator of NuTread Tires in Tacoma and has been an active member of the VMRA board for the past several years. Congratulations to the 32-team.
