Our New Ride For 2019

Before the end of 2019 I purchased a 2017 Distant 101 chassis from Cole Butcher.
Cole won with this car the last night it raced in 2019 in the CAT250 at Scotia Speedworld, in the very exciting Parts for Trucks Maritime Pro Stock Tour.
The car needed a seat and belts. I bought a great seat from Jared Butcher, Coles brother and belts from R&D Performance.
Cole is currently racing in the US and will enter the Snow Ball Derby in Pensacola Florida at Five Flags Speedway. The speedy youngster qualified pole for the All American 400 in late October. and really knows how to wheel a race car. We wish him luck.
This may be the best race car I have ever owned and I can’t wait to get to test it…but tons to do before then.
I hope to post pictures soon of this car and the progress that has been made to date.
You can see the progress if you go to our Message Board and click on General Chat and then Diary of a Season 2019.

Buttons & I Deliver The Mod To The Wilson Family Day After ACC

I know many of you have been waiting to see something from me since ACC on Thanksgiving weekend. I will finish my last race post. It wasn’t as good as I hoped but I also wasn’t focused with so much on my mind, saving the car for the Wilson family, moving in 2 days, delivering the Modified on Monday after the race plus a huge list of things to do before the move on Tuesday.
Once I finish the final race, I will post the move, my home, garage and new race car. Thank you so much for your support, things are going great and I will post soon. 🙂

OSCAAR & Sunset Speedway Honor Me, My Family & Sponsors This Weekend

This Saturday and Sunday OSCAAR and Sunset Speedway will honor me before I go to Nova Scotia. This special event is called Ironman 72 Twin 36 lap features. It came to be by the genius of Dave Gainforth who used my age and the number of my car to create this memorable night for me, my family, crew, fans and sponsors. OSCAAR owed Sunset a feature after we got full pay for the Spring Velocity when the feature rained out. The agreement after that was to add 10 laps to our feature for the next 3 visits. We did for the next race, June 29th, but July 20th was cut short by the track due to a lightning storm in the Innisfil area. That wasn’t OSCAAR’s fault but still we didn’t get a full show in. Dave contacted Brian Toddish to present this proposed race, Brian agreed, and then Dave asked me about it and I was beyond shocked. I never expected that at all. How cool is it on my 72nd birthday a Twin 36 format is created…..couldn’t have been any other time in my career…..just amazing and thank you Lord for this thoughtful gesture. So quickly I said yes 🙂

The format will consist of double heats and a 36 lap feature on Saturday, plus a 36 lap feature on Sunday. The track will pay a purse for one feature but Dave decided to get lap sponsors for the second feature at $36 each. I was so excited about this I worked hard to raise $4000. I was thrilled that so many people I talked to said yes without hesitation.

I will post more about this including lap sponsors in a few days.

Newfoundland A Beautiful Place

We didn’t fare very well on the track but we sure had a great time on the Rock. It was my first time in Newfoundland and I got to see some family and race on a track I never did before.
The racing part was tough, but it didn’t discourage me because the rest of the trip was A+.
Flamboro Speedway this Saturday at Flamboro Speedway.
I’ve been away for a week so my updates are behind, but I will get them done next week…I will have 3 to do.

Mods At Delaware Speedway August 17th

We make our second trip to Delaware Speedway this Saturday.  We’re hoping for a better run this time. 

Since our last Modified race we have changed the engine, removed 150 pounds of lead and rescaled the car.   My 604 idea didn’t work because that engine isn’t suppose to be muzzled, but we tried. We were carrying too much speed into the corners to make the 604 effective. Thanks for visiting our site. 🙂
