Our 2022 season will begin at Scotia Speedworld on May 21st. This will be our 54th season racing and 49th year with Quaker State. I will be posting results and hopefully pictures on Monday May 23rd.
Thank you for visiting our site
Our 2022 race schedule will include the full East Coast International Pro Stock Tour, 3 specials at Petty International Raceway in River Glade New Brunswick, another special at Center For Speed in Shediac New Brunswick and two races in Ontario for the Grisdale Triple Crown at Flamboro Speedway and Peterborough’s annual Autumn Classic.
This 18 race schedule will still be less than our average since 1969 of 24.5 nights per year, but it will be much better than the past two seasons.
Our first race is this Saturday May 21st at Scotia Speedworld near the Halifax Airport.
I will be posting race results and pictures once I get them from whomever the photographer is.
Our 2022 autograph cards are ready, just waiting for a good picture of the current paint scheme with our new sponsors. I should have the picture from the June 4th race at Petty Raceway.
Our Diecast has been sent offshore. I will receive one completed Diecast to check over and if I am happy with it I will give them the go ahead to produce 700. I expect to have them by November. We have orders for 356 cars right now. I believe there will be no cars left by Christmas. If you want one please let me know by looking me up in Murray Siding Nova Scotia, or on social media.

Hey sorry for not updating more on my website. I have been working with Lionel Racing the past 2 months and finally got the new paint scheme and all the required information, letters of permission from sponsors and high resolution logo files to Lionel. The next step is for the production company to make me one Diecast car and send it to me for approval. I will check the car to make sure everything I wanted on the Diecast is there and didn’t forget to include anyone or anything.
I will be updating my site more now that we are only 3 weeks away from the start of the 2022 race season, our 54th.
Here is the art work from Lionel. They can’t duplicate chrome wheels and the gold isn’t very bright but they have assured me the gold will be richer once an actual single Diecast has been made for my approval.
Thanks for visiting our site.
It’s a world record now, but it will be even bigger when we get to our 50th year with Quaker State, the longest driver/sponsor partnership in racing history.
We will have hoodies, t-shirts, hats and other souvenir items by spring of 2023.
I also wanted to have a Diecast for this milestone, and that wish is happening, thank you Lord.
I’ve been working tirelessly on the Diecast for our 50th year with Quaker State. There is a lot that had to be worked out before sending everything to Lionel Racing. Special thanks to Kirk Alexander for all his help with this project.
Here is an update:
*All high resolution logo’s have been sent to Lionel Racing
*All permission letters from sponsors on the Diecast or on the box will be sent March 19th
*The final concept drawing has been sent to Lionel Racing on the 16th of March.
I haven’t heard back yet from Lionel Racing to know if they need more information. It’s been a challenge getting sponsors locked in for 2 years, then asking for permission letters to have their logo on the car, a licensing requirement by Lionel Racing.
Once Lionel Racing is satisfied with everything we send them, they will make a 3D version of the car design posted here.
I designed the paint scheme with help from Rodney Sullins from Arkansas and Kirk Alexander of Finish Line Vinyl Design. Kirk letters my Pro Late Model and Rodney designs on line race paint schemes for members of Rolling Thunder Gaming, a group I use to race on line with in 2010-2011.
This design still needs small tweaking but is 99% ready for a 3D look.
There won’t be red centers for the wheels. The drawing program comes with red centers.
Once I approve the final design by Lionel Racing, they will require a deposit and then send it offshore to be manufactured. I hope to have them by November 2022. We need to order a minimum of 700. So far I have had 326 requests for a car. It is possible we might need to order a few more, I don’t want to be sold out before 2023 starts…..that would be great, but I would hate to have people asking for this milestone keepsake and we’re sold out.
The cars will be $100 each including tax, plus shipping. Ontario shipping will be around $30.
Maritime shipping may be free if I can meet up with buyers.

I’m also on facebook.
