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 Ken for your dirt track trophy win. This is Ken’s 2nd first place win this season.

 

A very huge thank you to Kyten Jones in the 30-car for providing these two photos.

Racing on a Dirt Track is not the normal for Vintage Modified Racing Association. It is hard on the cars, they are not setup for dirt; however, these drivers/teams/owners were presented with this opportunity and everyone agreed to take on the dirt. Enjoy the videos.  To watch the Main Event, B-Heat and A-Heat race click on the link below.

There was such a great turn-out for the race at Spokane Super Oval Speedway. The Vintage Modified’s pits made a great impression.

                                                   

It was a very windy and cold night of racing at Spokane Super Oval Speedway on Saturday night, April 21st, 2018.  There was a great turn-out of 14-cars. They ran an 8-lap Heat Race, a 4-lap Trophy Dash and a 20-lap Main Event.

Nine cars hit the track to race in the Main Event. Congratulations to Ken Kaltschmidt for his first Vintage Modified, 1st place Main Event trophy win.  Devin Eierman, our 2016 and 2017 Champion took home the 2nd place trophy and Jim Jones the 3rd place trophy. There were several cautions throughout the evening. All-in-all it was a fun, clean night of racing.

Ken Kaltschmidt in the 27-car took home the 1st place trophy. And what a trophy it is, huge. It was a good race for 1st place. Twenty years ago Ken won 1st place at this very same track, below are his two trophies. Congratulations for your first win with Vintage Modified Racing Association.

  

Devin Eierman in the 6-car and Jim Jones in the 03-car put up a big challenge towards 1st place. Devin took home 2nd and Jim took home 3rd. Congratulations to these three teams. It is a great start for the 2018 racing season.

      

 

Kyten Jones in the 30-car and Vern Huson in the 77-car won the A and B Trophy dashes.

Evergreen Speedway – April 14th

Posted by | Posted in General | Posted on 14-04-2018

What a wet day. Evergreen Speedway was not going to call a ‘Rain-Out’ for Vintage Modified Racing Association, so several teams showed-up and sported the rainy-day.  The drivers never did get their cars onto the track, and only one car actually backed off their trailer. However, in spite of the rain everyone had a fun day.  For the teams that could not make it to the track, we don’t race by the mail carriers motto… NOT WIND – NOR RAIN – NOR STORM… many teams travel a great distance to race in this traveling club, we know if you could have been there today, you would have been there today.

So at 3:30 pm Evergreen Speedway finally called it a rain out for Vintage Modified Racing Association, this club is amazing.  Thank you to MicRobert’s Kitchen for feeding the teams.

A great fellowship day, rain or not. See everyone in Spokane at our next scheduled race on April 21st, Spokane Super Oval Speedway.
