On April 2nd the CVM/Hobby Club held their 50th Anniversary celebration event at the Legion in Dundas. The Hobby’s, known as the Jalopies during their beginning, raced at the CNE when it opened in the early 50’s until it closed in 1966. A group of men decided to preserve these nostalgic race cars forming a Chartered club called the O.A.R.C., the Ontario Amateur Racing Club in 1966. When the CNE closed the Hobby club started racing full time at Flamboro Speedway. There was a great turn out of drivers, including a few on hand who raced at Flamboro Speedway on their opening day in 1962. I was honored to have raced 40 seasons in the CVM, 33 years consecutive. We hold the record for the driver with the most consecutive seasons, missing only 15 of over 800 nights in those 33 seasons. I miss racing with my friends, but very much enjoyed seeing many of them yesterday at the reunion. … Continue reading →

These pictures from March 30th show our Modified taking shape. Mostly cosmetic updates for this year. Things have been hectic for me causing a slow start on our cars, but we are in high gear now and looking forward to getting both cars home and finished. The Modified will be painted by Josh Watson once it’s stripped down. The new bars will be chromed by Metal Coaters and once those are finished the car will head to Creative Edge for lettering. For any trailer work, DOT safeties on trailers, cars, or trucks, having a new trailer built, or race cars up grades including set up, call Ron at Oakville Trailers…..905-469-8939…..thanks for visiting our site………….Note in the back ground is Rick Schurr’s OSCAAR Mod being wrapped by Chuck Barton. Derek Jackson is there as well.

Grind Stone Back For 2016

GRINDSTONE_LOGO

I am very fortunate to have so many good associate sponsors for our race team. Grind Stone joined us in 2008, our 40th year racing, and has been a great sponsor with us. If you wonder why I have 2 landscaping sponsors it’s because the owners of both Timber Green and Grind Stone are father and son. Jay will drive my Late Model this year at Flamboro Speedway on the days I am in my Modified. He is looking forward to filling in for me. They do not have a web site yet, although their logo is on our site. Once it comes up I will put a link to it. … Continue reading →
