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.

Steve Woods #22 takes home his second Championship, two years in a row.  What a fantastic year for Steve and his team. Steve and Beca were unable to attend the season end banquet so his parents, John and Lamora, accepted his first-place trophy for 2022.

All fun set aside; Steve Woods had a great 2022 season. Started in the back of the line-up many times and put his awesome driving skills to good use and took home many 1st place trophies.  Congratulations Steve and team for another excellent racing season.


Vince Conwell #82 also won two trophies this year, second place and for Sportsmanship. It was so appreciated that Vince, and his amazing wife Deanna, drove 2000 miles round trip to pick up and deliver tires that were needed for the 2022 season. Vince always has the right hand of fellowship out for his peers. That wonderful Sportsmanship trophy was made by Rick Villyard.

Randy Adams #65 had a very interesting year with Vintage Modified Racing Association.  Taking home 8th place, as well-as the Hard Luck Trophy (trophy designed and made by Rick Villyard)!  Randy faced a few struggles, he had a medical emergency that kept him from starting the main event in Hermiston, Oregon. Randy begged the track EMTs to let him race before they transported him to the hospital.  He always showed up to put on a great show for the fans.  Unfortunately, Randy was not able to attend the banquet.


Robert Rux #88 took 9th place racing a partial season in 2022.  Robert has been racing with Vintage Modified since 1999.  Over the years he’s received trophies for Hard Luck and Best Appearing car. In remembrance of Mountain Man, Ken Jackson, pictured in neon 88.
