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.

Congratulations to Devin Eierman and Kyten Jones at Wenatchee Valley Super Oval – Saturday – June 17th

What an exciting night of racing at Wenatchee Valley Super Oval on Saturday night.  Thank you to the teams that were available for a great night of racing.

Kyten Jones – 30-car almost owned the night, two more laps into the Main Event and he would have had a clean sweep.  Kyten was fast and furious on Saturday night; racing fast and looking lean.  Kyten was positioned on the inside, up front for the 4-lap trophy dash; competing with 77-Vern Huson, 27-Ken Kaltschmidt  and 6-Devin Eireman.  Crossing the last-lap in first place Kyten took the checkered flag and trophy.

Not stopping there Kyten was on the outside, second row for the 8-lap Heat race. Competing with 28-Adam Bragdon, 1-Chris Cook, 7-Mike Clother, 27-Ken Kaltschmidt, 77-Vern Huson, 6-Devin Eierman and 61-Robert Rux.   Kyten Jones in the 30-car was putting on a fantastic show for the fans, maneuvered around all the cars in front and taking another checkered flag for two wins at Wentachee Valley Super Oval.  Pictured with Kyten Jones are his crew team Makiah Woodruff and Keith Cook. The second photo is with the tracks very lovely trophy girl.

  

 

  Thank you to Kyten Jones and the 30-team’s sponsors:
Benchmark Barrels – www.benchmark-barrels.com – Arlington, WA
Berg’s Custom Cylinder Heads – Arlington, WA
Jay’s Automotive – Everett, WA
Dillon Trucking – Arlington, WA

Devin Eierman in the 6-car gave the fans a show worth watching as he attempted many times too catch-up to and get around Kyten Jones in the 30-car during the 30-lap Main Event. Devin started on the outside in the 3rd positon for the Main Event.  As he raced against 28-Adam Bragdon, 1-Chris Cook, 7-Mike Clother, 27-Ken Kaltschmidt, 30-Kyten Jones, 77-Vern Huson and 61-Robert Rux, skillfully trying to pass the cars ahead of him and trying to catch up to Kyten Jones; who quickly took the front row and first place position Devin out cornered Kyten going into the 28th lap and taking the first place checkered flag on the 30th lap of the Main Event. All teams put on a great show for the fans.

  

Thank you to Devin Eierman and the 6-teams sponsors:
#1 Sponsor is Mom and Transmission Sales & Service

Chris Cook in the 1-car gave the fans a fright as he not only hit the wall, but climbed the wall directly in front of the fans.  His car almost ended up on the roof.  Thankfully Chris was not hurt and was able to drive his car off the track and back into his pit. Glad you made it safely Chris!

  

Thank you Chris Cook and the 1-teams sponsors:

South Sound Speedway – June 3rd – Devin Eierman #6 – Ken Kaltschmidt #27 – Vern Huson #77

Posted by | Posted in General | Posted on 11-06-2017

Devin Eierman in the 6-car took another Main Event 1st place win at South Sound Speedway June 3rd. Ken Kaltschmidt #27 came in 2nd and Vern Huson #77 came in 3rd. Devin started the race in back of the line-up and raced his way to the front of the line. Ken not only came in 2nd for the Main Event, but he took 1st in the A-Heat race.  A rather unusual night of racing for Vintage Modifieds, it took three re-starts to get the Main Event underway. Congrats to the top three teams.

     

 

Dawn Huntley #49 had a pretty amazing night at the track.  Dawn won the B-Heat race and the Trophy Dash. Congratulations Dawn, your wins are well deserved.

So congratualtions Chris for such an awesome come-back.  Chris began racing in 1976, with 82-amazing wins over his racing career.  Chris races in a 1941 Husdon and Jim Jones built this car.  A special thank you goes out too Chris supporters Jan Snyder and Wild Willy and too his sponsors: Rainer Plumbing and Rooter, Ace Auto Repair, Jim Jones Trucking and Cornwell Tools.

Ken and his team are off to a great start for his first year with VMRA. Congratulations for your great start and running in 1st place and points holder.

  

What a exciting evening for Aaron Clother in the 54-car.  Aaron took home the B-Heat first place win. This was exciting news all around the track and in the stands.  The previous year was a hard year for the 54-team. Several break downs prevented them from racing a full season. Congratulations Aaron Clother and the 54-team, this is a win well deserved.  Aaron’s car is a 1947 Chevy, built by Aaron and Pat Banks.

May 20th at Wenatchee Valley Super Oval – Devin Eierman – 6 car / Ken Kalschmidt – 27 car / Vern Huson – 77 car took home the first, second and third place trophies.

Congratulatons to Devin Eierman and the 6-team for another first place win this year, a great way to begin the 2017 season.  Devin has been racing since 1990, his first year racing with Vintage Modifieds was in 1994.   His first class was with Spanaway’s Hobby Stocks.  Pictured with Devin are his crew chief, Vince Hose and his father, Robert Eierman.

 

 

Ken Kalschmidt – 27 car and team are off to a fantastic start for the 2017 season. This is their first year with VMRA and already has taken home two trophies. The 27-car came in 3rd place in the last race at South Sound Speedway and is now taking home the 2nd place trophy here at Wenatchee Valley Super Oval.  Not only is Ken taking home the 2nd place trophy, but he ran the fastest time at an amazing 14.968 and he is first in points – totalling 148.

  

This is the second season racing with the 77-team. Vern Huson had the home field advantage, racing at the WVSO, Wenatchee is his home town. Vern puts a lot of miles on the road to race with VMRA, he truly is dedicated to the sport considering all the miles he travels to each race.  Vern and the 77-team are off to a great start for the 2017 season, holding the second place position with a total of 139-points.

Evergreen Speedway – May 6th – Devin Eireman 6-car came in First Place

Posted by | Posted in General | Posted on 05-04-2017

The third race of the season at Evergreen Speedway in Monre was not rained out! Whew, a great day of beautiful, warm, sunny weather.  Which made for a great night of racing.

 

The main event ran 25-laps. Early on in the main event, Robert Rux 88-car, experienced a blown engine and left the track in huge cloud of smoke. Not a great way to start the season, good luck to the 88-team.  Unfortunately for Chris Cook 1-car, ran into car troubles before having the opportunity of timing-in. So good luck to the 1-team as well.

 

The main event started out with father and son head to head on the front-line. Jim Jones 03-car and Kyten Jones 30-car. The two had four fast cars approaching, chomping at the bit to take the lead.  Devin Eierman 6-car, Mike Clother 7-car, Vern Huson 77-car and Ken Kalschmidt 27-car all competing to make their move.  At one point Jim Jones and Devin Eierman were nose to nose down the stretch into turns 1, 2 and 3 with Jim holding the lead. On that last stretch around turn 4 Devin took the lead. A couple more laps and the checkered flag waved Devin in 1st place, Jim in 2nd place and Ken in 3rd.  Wow, a close race and very exciting evening of racing.  Congratulations to Devin Eierman and the 6-team for the first win of the season.

  

  

  

 

Congratulations to our two Heat Race winners.  A great way to start the new season for Kyten Jones in the 30-car taking first place in the A-Heat and for Adam Bragdon in the 28-car taking first place in the B-Heat.
