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.

Second Main Event Win for Devin Eierman and the 6-Team

What a wild night at Spokane Super Oval!  The Heat race was not divided into A and B, it was ran with all Vintage cars on the track at once.  The rain added to the havoc. Between the rain and the crash involving the 04, 88 and 30 cars the Heat race was cancelled.  Unfortunately, the rain caused a huge delay for the Vintage 25-lap Main Event.  Fortunately, the rain delay gave the 04, 88 and 30 teams time to make necessary repairs to their cars in time to race in the Main Event. Vintage Modifieds were originally scheduled to race the first Main Event, but due to the rain and the Super Late Models 125-lap Main Event, they raced their Main last.  Which was a blessing to all the teams, the track was dried-off.

Congratulations to Devin Eierman, in the 6-car, for his second Main Event win, a fantastic start to the 2016 Season.  As the cars hit the track for the Main Event, Devin was trying to maneuver around the 26-car Johnny ‘Lightning’ Mustered, 59-car ‘Wild Man’ Dawn Huntley and 7-car ‘Jeckyll & Hyde’ Mike Clother drivers.  Once Devin passed Lightning and Wild Man the race was on to get around Jeckyll & Hyde.  Once that happened, Devin was gone and took the checkered flag.  Devin was the record holder last year at Spokane Super Oval with a time-in of 20.410. And he still holds that record!

Devin Eierman – 6 Car – Winner of the First Race of the 2016 Season

Posted by | Posted in General | Posted on 03-05-2016

What a night of racing.  Devin Eierman in the 6-car started out leading the 35-lap Main Event.  After the 3rd re-start, racing began.  Bobby Wheeler, Jr in the 22-car got tangled up with Devin and they both had to re-start in the back.  Robert Rux in the 88-car then took the lead.  After three cautions Robert still had the lead.  Robert lead the next 27-laps, with Devin hot on his tail.  When the white flag waved the last lap was a tight one.  Just as the checkered flag dropped Devin inched past Robert and won the race by 4-inches.  Wow!  What an ending for the first race of the season.

Congratulations too Devin Eierman in the 6-car and to his team for this exciting start of the 2016 season.  A trophy well earned.

Devin was very humble as the announcer interviewed him before he took his picture with the lovely trophy girl.  Devin first thanked Robert Run for running such a clean race.  Spoke words of excitement, thanked his sponsors and then happily held his trophy.  The first trophy of the season, and one of many more to come.  Well done Devin!

Thank you too Devin’s sponsors:  #1 Sponsor is Mom, Transmission Sales & Service

Johnny ‘Lightning’ Mustered in the 26 car won the A-Heat race and Dawn ‘Wild Man’ Huntley in the 59 car won the B-Heat.  A great night for the drivers and a great way to being the 2016 season.
