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.

In Loving Memory of Mountain Man Ken Jackson

Posted by | Posted in Classifieds, General | Posted on 17-08-2019

Mountain Man Ken Jackson passed away this morning, our hearts are broken at the loss of such a great friend. He suffers no longer.  Ken always put others before himself. Never asked anything from anyone.

If you broke down in the pits he’d look through his stocked racing parts to find what you needed to get back on the track; if Ken didn’t have the part he made sure it was stocked before the next race.

He bought a tire machine to support the club when a purchase of tires was made and teams wanted their tires mounted before leaving. Mountain Man would bring the tire machine to the track, he not only mounted tires for Vintage Modified but teams from other racing clubs would asked if he’d mount their tires as well. He never said no.

In his passing he donated his eyes to his blind grandson. Mountain Man will be greatly missed. 

REST IN PEACE BELOVED FRIEND
