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.

Evergreen Speedway – April 14th

Posted by | Posted in General | Posted on 14-04-2018

What a wet day. Evergreen Speedway was not going to call a ‘Rain-Out’ for Vintage Modified Racing Association, so several teams showed-up and sported the rainy-day.  The drivers never did get their cars onto the track, and only one car actually backed off their trailer. However, in spite of the rain everyone had a fun day.  For the teams that could not make it to the track, we don’t race by the mail carriers motto… NOT WIND – NOR RAIN – NOR STORM… many teams travel a great distance to race in this traveling club, we know if you could have been there today, you would have been there today.

So at 3:30 pm Evergreen Speedway finally called it a rain out for Vintage Modified Racing Association, this club is amazing.  Thank you to MicRobert’s Kitchen for feeding the teams.

A great fellowship day, rain or not. See everyone in Spokane at our next scheduled race on April 21st, Spokane Super Oval Speedway.

Vintage Modified Racing Association has been around since 1986. We’ve seen teams come and go, but the friendships don’t end. These dedicated folks will step-up and lend a hand for each other. You need a part when you break down, someone in the pits will lend that part to their opposing teams, so that team can run the Main Event. We have faced some hard times, we have lost loved ones – fathers, wives, fellow racers, but we are still running strong. So enjoy these videos. The blast from the past and even some from last year our most current past. Thank you to our teams for always coming back to the fun side of racing. You folks are the best! God bless you and God bless your families.
