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.

What a great turn out on Saturday at Evergreen Speedway August 7th.  Fifteen cars showed-up for a great evening of racing.  The evening was unpredictable,  with the schedule changing several times throughout the evening and the rain coming down, the schedule changed to having only the Main Event for Vintage Modifieds.  Unfortunately for Vern Huson #77, his car broke and Brian Cottrell #10 pulled out once the rain steadily came down. So 13-cars ventured out for the 30-lap Main Event.

Rick Villyard #2 took the lead after several laps and a caution, winning the 30-lap Main Event and taking home the 1st place trophy. This moves Rick into 4th place with a total of 309-points. Congratulations Rick!

  

Steve Woods #22 started in the back of the line-up and worked his way up and getting into 2nd place. It was touch and go between several cars for 2nd, but Steve crossed over and took the 2nd place trophy.  Steve is also in 2nd place with a total of 337-points.  Great job Steve!

    

-Vince Conwell #47 battled for 3rd place in the Main Event. And Vince is currently in 3rd place in points, giving him a total of 325-points.  Vince teams up with Ken Kaltschmidt. Congratulations!

  

Thank you to all the teams that showed up to race on Saturday, even with the chance of a rainout.

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.
