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.

Wow, what an exhausting evening of racing. These Vintage Modified teams are great sports. Dealing with the heat of over 100 degrees, in their protective driving gear and sitting in their hot cars, and still put on an amazing show for the fans. I’d like to congratulate the 30-lap Main Event winners: Steve Woods in the 22-car took home first place; Kyten Jones in the 30-car took home second place and Ed Beck in the 15-car took home 3rd place.  This was a very close race. Even with a couple cautions and restarting with the pace car, the competition for first place kept the fans cheering and anxious waiting for that checkered flag to wave.  Thank you to all 10-cars for putting on a great show on that extremely hot Saturday Evening.

   

It was a great evening for Steve Woods, he not only took first place in the Main Event, but he also took first place in the A-Heat Race.  Steve is currently in 2nd place with a total of 295-points.

 

Kyten Jones is in great points standing with a total of 302-points and is holding 1st place. This second place Main Event win just adds to his successful racing year.  

 

Ed Beck took home not only the third place trophy in the Main Event, but he also came in first place in the B-Heat race. Ed is currently in 5th place with a total of 262-points. Congratulations Ed and his lovely Wife Becky.

It was such a close race for Ken, he led several laps during the Main Event.  Then there were a couple of mishaps on the track that led to the  yellow caution flag waving, it changed Kens luck. Taking home the second place trophy is still an honor. Ken is in second place in points with a total of 220-points. Thank you Ken for putting on a great show for the fans.
 
 
 
Now for Rick Villyard in the #2 car, Rick took home the 3rd place trophy for the 25-lap Main Event. It was a close night all evening for these drivers.

Congratulations Rick for a great night of racing.
 
 
Mike Clother in the #7 car took home the first place trophy in the B-Heat Race. It was an awesome win for Mike, his family surprised him when they showed up to cheer him on for the Father’s Day race. So it was especially exciting for Mike receiving a trophy on Saturday evening.  Mike is currently in ninth place with a total of 123-points. Congratulations Mike.

Fun Day for VMRA

Posted by | Posted in General | Posted on 14-03-2021

It was a fun day for the VMRA teams, and raising money for the club.  The tire sale was a success, buy 10-tires and get 1-tire for free. Plus the opportunity to purchase hats, tank tops, t-shirts and hoodies; which is the fundraiser for the club.

Plenty of coffee, donuts and cookies for the morning. Good times. Great friends. And a great start to our 2021 racing season.

                                                              

It was so nice having the day to get caught-up. Laugh and have great conversations.  Thank-you everyone for your support to Vintage Modified Racing Association.  Keep in mind that tires, hats, tank tops, t-shirts and hoodies are all still available for purchase.
