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.

#10 Brian Cottrell took 1st place in the 30-lap Main Event. Brian had a rough start, during the A-Heat race he left the track due to a large volume of smoke pouring off from his engine.  Thank goodness, it was only power steering fluid causing all of that smoke.  Brian ended his evening with a total of 76-points.  Congratulations to Brian Cottrell and his crew for a great start to our 2022 Racing Season.

 

# 22 Steve Woods, our 2021 Season Champion, came in 2nd place in the Main Event.

# 30 Kyten Jones took home 3rd place in the Main Event. Kyten was our 2019 Season Champion.  Kyten was raised with a racing family; his father Jim Jones took home a couple championships in his days of racing.
