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.

First Race of the 2018 Season – Last Year – April 14th

Posted by | Posted in General | Posted on 14-04-2019

Last year our first race of the season was April 14th 2018 at Evergreen Speedway in Monroe. Evergreen doesn’t call the race a ‘rain-out’ until the very last minute of pour down rain.  Enjoy these pictures from last years first race.

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 SLEET – NOR HAIL… 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.

                                                     

Most Inspirational for 2018

Posted by | Posted in General | Posted on 02-04-2019

It was a tie for the peer vote for Most Inspirational for 2018, Ken ‘Mountain Man’ Jackson and Micki Rux.  These two people provide a lot of support to the club and the teams. Ken is the ‘go-to-man’ for tires, parts and service and Micki is the ‘go-to-women’ for great meals, running to the tower for line-up sheets, point sheets and making sure everyone is where they need to be when they need to be there.

Thank you Ken and Micki for your unfailing service to VMRA. You both give so much of your time and dedication to make sure the teams are well cared for.  You are both appreciated for everything. Thank you.
