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.

Unfortunately his engine blew on Saturday after the main event.  Sunday morning Mike Clother drove Robert Rux to Tacoma and picked up an extra engine the John Mustered offered up so Rux could continue racing on Sunday. Now that’s team work.

Evergreen Speedway August 22nd. Bobby Wheeler, Jr. – Robert Rux – Kyten Jones

Posted by | Posted in General | Posted on 24-08-2015

“The 25 lap main started out with Huson leading off and maintained the lead for 11 laps, Clother and Wheeler raced side-by-side behind him, dueling for the opportunity to be the one to challenge for the lead. Mustered and Rux raced just behind the dicing leaders waiting for the wreck that seemed inevitable. It came in turns one and two on the 12th lap.” wrote Mike Clother

The wreck ended with Bobby Wheeler, Jr – car #22 taking the checkered flag 1st.  Robert Rux – car #88 came in 2nd and Kyten Jones – car # 30 took 3rd.   Bobby is still the points leader, with 675-points.  Robert is positioned with a close 2nd ending the evening with 645-points.  Kyten is moving up with a total of  336-points.

What a Fantastic Night of Racing for Kyten Jones and the 30-team at Evergreen Speedway August 8th

It doesn’t get more exciting then winning the Heat Race and the Main Event all in one night. This was the first Main Event win for Kyten Jones in the 30-car. Saying congratulations just doesn’t seem to be enough, but Congratulations Kyten Jones!

Kyten held the lead from the beginning and didn’t look back, taking the checkered flag in the Heat Race. It was an exciting moment for the 30-team. Cheers were hollered out from the stands and much excitement in the pits. But the icing on the cake came when Kyten took the Main Event checkered flag. Kyten held his ground, even with a couple of cautions, leading the way in the 25-lap Main Event to the checkered flag and the trophy. Words cannot properly express how proud and happy your family, friends and the fans were with these two wins. Way to go Kyten Jones in the 30-car!

This win is in Loving Memory of Kyten’s mom, Cheryl Jones.
