John Mustered in the 26-car took home the 3rd place trophy in the 25-lap Main event. What a close race, cars neck-to-neck. John (aka:  Johnny Lightning) was moving up the field fast and furious and proudly took home that 3rd place trophy.  John has been racing with Vintage Modifieds since 2004.  John would like to call out a special thank you to Leonard Schmidt for all of his encouragement and support over the years of racing.   Also, a huge thank you to his crew chief Josh Peterson.  Congratulations John for another trophy to add to your trophy shelf.  John holds the 3rd place with Vintage Modifieds and has a total of 409-points.

 

Steve Woods driving the 22-car came in 1st in the A-Trophy.  Steve is holding 4th place with Vintage Modifieds and has a total of 383-points. This is Steve’s first year with Vintage Modifieds. Steve has taken home several trophies this year. He has also ran into some bad luck, blowing 2-engines this year – wow!  Congratulations Steve for yet, another trophy this season.

Thank you to Steve’s sponsors: First Day Electric, Gig Harbor Copy & Mail and Travel by Cathy

SPECIAL THANKS TO:  Rick Villyard, John Woods and Becca Woods

  

Robert Rux came in 1st in the B-Trophy dash.  Very exciting for Robert Rux in the 88-car. Unfortunately, Robert hasn’t been able to make every race this season, he has spent most of this year building this beautiful 1936 Chevy Humpback. Robert has a total of 121-points this season.  

Thank you to Robert’s sponsors:  Stickerboyzzz discount lettering, Jeremy Nichols, Bath Fitters and Erin Nichols, Tony Russell Insurance.

SPECIAL THANKS TO: Jeremy Nichols, Devin Eierman, Rick Villyard, and Vince Hose for all your help building my car

And a very special thank you to Mountain Man Ken Jackson for all of your years of friendship and being a part of my team. You will be missed, but never forgotten. Rest in peace dear friend.

  

In loving memory of Ken Jackson WVSO let Vintage Modifieds have a memorial lap in his honor.

In Loving Memory of Mountain Man Ken Jackson

Posted by | Posted in 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

        

                

Vince Conwell 1st / Jim Jones 2nd / Ed Beck 3rd / August 10th – Evergreen Speedway

What a night of racing, the 25-lap Main Event took a couple of turns ending with Vince Conwell taking 1st place, Jim Jones taking 2nd place and Ed Beck taking 3rd place. 

On the last lap, on turn four, Steve Woods (22-car) who was in 1st and Kyten Jones (30-car) who was in 2nd place spun out in some oil on the track losing their positions.

Congratulations Vince, Jim and Ed!

Vince Conwell is currently in 2nd place with a total of 278-points.

 

Jim Jones driving the 26-car this evening for John Mustered.  The 26-car is currently in 3rd place with a total of 27-points.

 

 

 

 

 

Ed Beck in the 15-car is currently in 7th place with a total of 223-points.
