Welcome to Vintage Modified!

Modified racing is one of the oldest types of racing in the US, dating back to the days of the post-World War II coupes. Modified racing began as race drivers modified their cars to gain a competitive advantage over their fellow competitors. What started out as minor modifications to the cars has now grown to the point that some modified classes are no longer based on any current production vehicles. NASCAR was instrumental in modified racing's beginnings. Some of NASCAR's pioneers were veteran modified racers long before NASCAR's inception in 1949.

What a beautiful day at Wenatchee Valley Super Oval.  A great turn out of 10-cars.  They raced in the A and B heat; as well as, a 30-lap Main Event.

Jim Jones-03 took the lead of the Main Event and finished the last 5-laps for the win. On his heels was Vern Huson-77 taking second and Mike Clother-7 coming in third.

  

Jim Jones has a couple championships under his belt with Vintage Modifieds.  Jim began racing in 1997 with Sky Valley Modifieds. He began racing with Vintage Modifies in 2004.  Thank you to Jim’s sponsors, Jim Jones Trucking and Bergs Custom Cylinder Heads.  A special thank you goes out to Laney and Tawnya.  Congratulations Jim Jones for your first trophy of the 2018 season.

  

Vern has been racing since 1964 with the A-A Class at Spanaway Speedway.  He joined Vintage Modified in 2015.  Vern has several first place wins with Vintage Modifieds over the past 3-years. He had to hustle to get 77 ready for the Wenatchee race, since he broke at the last race at Grays Harbor Speedway. Thank you to Vern’s sponsor Johnson Electric – Wenatchee, WA and a very special thank you to his fiancee Vada.

  

Mike Clother-7 came in third Saturday night.  Mike began racing in 1981.  His first race was at a Demo derby on Mother’s Day 1981.  He won a trophy and was hooked on racing ever since.  Mike’s first car class was Hobby Stocks at Spanaway.  He came to Vintage Modified in  1995 because he thought they were fast and cool and they were great racers.  He has 7-VMRA Championships under his belt.

Racing on a Dirt Track is not the normal for Vintage Modified Racing Association. It is hard on the cars, they are not setup for dirt; however, these drivers/teams/owners were presented with this opportunity and everyone agreed to take on the dirt.

There was such a great turn-out for the race at Spokane Super Oval Speedway. The Vintage Modified’s pits made a great impression.

                                                   

It was a very windy and cold night of racing at Spokane Super Oval Speedway on Saturday night, April 21st, 2018.  There was a great turn-out of 14-cars. They ran an 8-lap Heat Race, a 4-lap Trophy Dash and a 20-lap Main Event.

Nine cars hit the track to race in the Main Event. Congratulations to Ken Kaltschmidt for his first Vintage Modified, 1st place Main Event trophy win.  Devin Eierman, our 2016 and 2017 Champion took home the 2nd place trophy and Jim Jones the 3rd place trophy. There were several cautions throughout the evening. All-in-all it was a fun, clean night of racing.

Ken Kaltschmidt in the 27-car took home the 1st place trophy. And what a trophy it is, huge. It was a good race for 1st place. Twenty years ago Ken won 1st place at this very same track, below are his two trophies. Congratulations for your first win with Vintage Modified Racing Association.

  

Devin Eierman in the 6-car and Jim Jones in the 03-car put up a big challenge towards 1st place. Devin took home 2nd and Jim took home 3rd. Congratulations to these three teams. It is a great start for the 2018 racing season.

      

 

Kyten Jones in the 30-car and Vern Huson in the 77-car won the A and B Trophy dashes.
