Peterborough Speedway Run…….A Good Night For Us

We had a good race night at Peterborough Speedway August 4th finishing 2nd in both heats and 7th in the feature.   The full story will be on Diary of a Season 2018 by Tuesday night.   I rested on Sunday and Monday got a lot done on the Modified to prepare for next Saturday’s OSCAAR Modified show at Sauble Speedway.  It will be our first time at Sauble since 2016 and I can’t wait.

1250th Career Night In The Books

Due to being very busy the past few weeks I didn’t get a chance to post this before race night #1251.  But here it is, a milestone of 1250 total nights since 1969.
I could not have done this with out God’s hand on my life.   I am very thankful for the support from my family, my crew, friends, sponsors, fans, competitors, their families and crew, promoters and their families.
Thank you to all those who have made this milestone an amazing journey.
Our 1251st night was very good including winning our second heat race of 2018.  The full story will be posted on Diary of a Season 2018 by Sunday night.

Quaker State Show Car Busy

This week is a busy one for my race team.   Buttons and I  did a show at Niagara Falls on July 24th, and will do another in Kingston on Friday July 27th.   Then race the Modified on July 28th at Flamboro Speedway.
Here is a picture from the show on Tuesday with the club called “Cruise on the Q”.
They close downtown Queen street for a few hours every Tuesday and the street fills up with beautiful hot rods, drag cars and on this day our Late Model show car.
Looking for a good night of racing on Saturday at Flamboro Speedway.  I’ve done better in the Late Model this year, and that sure is weird.   Hoping to get the OSCAAR Modified on the podium this weekend.

Was This The Last Race At Kawartha Speedway?

Rumor and maybe facts say that Kawartha Speedway ran it’s last race on July 13th.
If so I must say it sure was a nice track to run.  I was fortunate to win a feature there in 2002 in the Coupe.
I will post anther picture soon of our 1250th night of racing.
The Friday night race is completed in Diary of a Season 2018, found on the Message Board on the left side menu.

Mod at Kawartha Speedway Friday Night…Late Model Saturday at Flamboro Speedway

Double header this weekend for me, running the OSCAAR Modified on Friday at Kawartha Speedway and then race the Late Model at Flamboro Speedway on Saturday.  This could be the final race ever at Kawartha Speedway, sad really.  Hope all can make it to see this show.
Our team is tied for 6th in the OSCAAR series, quite a ways back from the leaders, and we’re 5th in points 12 points behind 3rd.
Hoping for a strong run in both cars.
Thank you for supporting Gary Elliott Motorsports and visiting our site.

David Spun Out Twice In First Feature….Still Finishes 5th

The amazing run by David on Saturday night was deflated by rough driving by his peers.  David rarely ever hits anyone to gain a spot.  He will retaliate if you beat him up and say nothing about it, that sends him into combat mode.   However, after the first feature, where he was spun out twice, and climbed the back chute wall, and the second spin out while he was on the leaders bumper…..the issue was resolved when Billy Schwartzenberg apologized early after the first feature.   Once he did there was no more issues for David or our crew.  Most times things unintentional, but when the aggressive driver fails to make good of his mistake, the deal doesn’t die, but hangs around for the right opportune time to “pay back”.   David usually never pays back, but clearly, if you disrespect him on the track, know there’s is one coming unless you mend that busted fence.
Watching David race is exciting for me and the fans because they see a hard charger that races clean.  He deserves to be in a newer car to compete against the very best but the funds just are not there, in spite of that he does fantastic with this car.
