After completely stripping our car, and carefully putting it back together, it was a pleasant surprise to find that our first set of hot laps were fair and the second not bad. There were a few issues with the car. The brake pedal was travelling too far in the first session, so we put the car on jack stands and bled the brakes. There was an oil leak, coming from the right side rocker cover, and the carb had a slight hesitation. All easy fixes for opening night May 6th. Special thanks to Lloyd, Louie, Stephen, Rick, Laurie and Rob for coming out to help with the track duties. They did a great job and our team has generated a ton of enthusiasm making this year look like it will be fun. I didn’t feel any performance difference in the car and that was disappointing. Maybe if we can keep up with some of the faster cars we’ll know how much our efforts moved us forward competition wise. We know this was just a test, but it was a good one and I am very thankful for all we did since November and how well the car worked after being … Continue reading →

Practice Day April 22nd

170408 (5)

This Saturday Flamboro Speedway will open the doors to the track for practice. Our team hopes to make it out. There are still quite a few things left to do and at this point we are not certain we’ll have the things done to get us to the practice session. If not we will get some laps in early on opening day. I don’t like to rush things, and though we are miles ahead of 2016, we are still a long way away from being ready to test our car. The biggest things is final scaling on the Late Model, getting the trailer loaded with tools etc. That will the biggest task of all. The trailer has had it’s annual safety, but needs a few hours to load everything, tools, parts and supplies…..and a good cleaning. The Modified is close, but it still needs 10 hours work on it to be ready for practice and that won’t happen for sure this weekend, although it wasn’t planned anyhow. I feel bad that we might not make practice day, but it takes a lot of hours to get ready for a season, and though we have done great, we are a few … Continue reading →

Thank you Joe and Sue Chisholm for having me on your program. I had a great time talking about our 2017 race program, our sponsors, crew, schedule, show dates and updates on our car.

Late Model Getting Closer For Practice Day

170318 (32)

After the car show we had a long list of things left to do that included making sure we fit all the measurements and templates for APC. In this picture our challenge was getting the proper nose location, height and distant, out from the wheel. Louie and Jerry spent a lot of time on that, while Lloyd and Rick were busy working on the Modified. Our schedule will be released soon, and includes 5 APC races for 2017. We will also race the full Late Model season at Flamboro Speedway, the full OSCAAR Modified schedule, with Rob DiVenanzo filling in on nights we can’t be at the Modified shows. Our team came over last weekend and we got a lot done on both the Late Model. We have another list to do now, in hopes of having both cars done by April 10th weekend, as well as our trailer. Here is a picture from last weeks work day……thanks for visiting, and soon I will be updating Diary of a Season 2017.

Motorama Custom Car Show…Great Success

170310  (19)

Thanks to my crew, Louie, Lloyd, Stephen, Lucy and Randall for helping with set up and spending some hours at the show this past weekend. It was a great show, lots of beautiful race cars and the usual amazing classic hot rods and custom cars and trucks. Many friends and fans dropped by commenting on our car. It looks awesome and I’m so glad we were in this years car show. We have a lot to do on the Late Model to get it ready for practice, mostly in set up. The Modified also needs set up repairs as well as a leaking release bearing fixed. Practice day is less than 6 weeks away. Thanks for visiting our site. … Continue reading →

2017 Version of our Quaker State Pro Late Model

March 2 002 - Copy (2)

Got the car back from Steve Lyons at Creative Edge Graphics and it has quickly become very popular with many of our fans and friends of racing. We still have some things to do before the Motorama Custom Car Show next week at the International Building at Derry Road and Airport Road, Mississauga, but it is 90% race ready, and that puts us a million miles ahead of 2016. Special thanks again to my crew Louie, Lloyd, Stephan and Randall for helping get us ready for the show….and to Steve Cashmore for his amazing help. Also to all my sponsors who are on board with us. We are still looking for one or two more sponsors and we will be set. I thank God for all He has done in my life and giving me the opportunity to race and sending me so many great people.
