   ARE WE READY? by Rev. Don Rivers
Looking to visit to the attic and search for the mystery bins that contain the Christmas decorations. I am sure many of you have begun to “Deck the Halls” yourself. But fancy window dressing doesn’t cover everything. Have we prepared our heart to receive Jesus Christ? Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We all know what it takes to prepare for a race, the effort that goes into just getting the car to the track. We know how much work goes into practice and making the necessary adjustments to prepare the car for the race. That excitement, that anticipation is the fuel that motivates us to race. There is no drug more powerful than excitement and anticipation. Anticipation for what is coming gives....Full Story
   NASCAR ANNOUNCES 2017 SCHEDULE FOR UNIFIED WHELEN MODIFIED TOUR
From South Carolina to Connecticut, the 2017 schedule announced today for the unified NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour will test the best Modified drivers over 17 points races and two special events at some of East Coast’s most historic venues. The new era will kick off on Saturday, March 18, with the season opener at Myrtle Beach Speedway. South Carolina’s semi-banked half-mile oval held its first NASCAR event in 1958. The champion will be crowned at Connecticut’s Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park, as the .625-mile hosts the 55th Sunoco World Series of Speedway Racing on Sunday, Oct. 15. The schedule includes 17 championship points races across seven states, including companion events with NASCAR’s national series....Full Story
   CHAMP TRAIL: 12/06/16 by Phil Smith
The Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park announced dates for the 2017 racing schedule, celebrating its 77th season on the high banked oval. The 2017 seven event NASCAR Whelen All-American Series (NWAAS) schedule is highlighted by the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour and the return of the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East. "This year’s schedule balances our commitment to tradition and innovation," states Josh Vanada, General Manager of TSMP. "The 2017 schedule preserves fan favorites while introducing unique and creative events and promotions." The speedway will continue to showcase Sunoco Modifieds, which will compete in eight points-counting races supported by the Late Models, Limited Sportsman and Mini Stocks, who will all have....Full Story
   CHAMP TRAIL: 11/29/16 by Phil Smith
All eyes were on the Wall Stadium Speedway in New Jersey for the running of the 43rd annual Turkey Derby on Friday and Saturday which closed out the racing season in the northeast. In the three separate modified divisions there were 86 cars, 30 Tour types, 30sks and 26 Sportsman Modifieds.
Jimmy Blewett started the weekend off with a win in the Sportsman Modifieds on Friday. He also won in the dirt track type modifieds on Saturday. In the SK type 100, Blewett started on the pole and led until the final of many cautions flew with 11 to go when he pitted for tires. Matt Hirschman, who started 13th, assumed the lead and went on to take the win. Blewett restarted in the rear and stormed back to second at the finish but could not overcome Hirschman....Full Story
   HIRSCHMAN SWEEPS TURKEY DERBY MODIFIED RACES AT WALL SATURDAY
Throughout the 2016 season Matt Hirschman lived up to his nickname “Big Money Matt” by winning many of the high paying races he entered. The Northampton, Pa. resident did it again on Saturday at Wall Stadium Speedway by winning both the Tour Type Modified and Wall Modified feature races during Turkey Derby XLIII. These two wins are added to the “Woody’s 105” race victory that he enjoyed in the summer here. Hirschman collected a combined $9,000 by sweeping the 150-lap Tour Type feature and the 100-lap SK Modified feature. “It’s a career day! That’s the only way to put it. I’ve been doing it for probably five or six years,” Hirschman said. “I’ve won each race on different years, but never in the same day. It’s incredible! It’s something..."....Full Story
   LOOKING BACK A BIT: 11/25/16 with Phil Smith
Fifty years ago in 1966, an era came to an end when it was announced that the half mile dirt track at the Stafford Springs Fairgrounds would be paved for the 1967 season. Stafford had been a Friday night hot bed as many of the big guns from New York including Kenny Shoemaker, Pete Corey, Maynard Forette, Don Wayman and Lou Lazzaro would come to Stafford to do battle with the likes of Bill Slater, Bob Janoski, Gene Bergin and Rene Charland. Once paved, Stafford became part of the weekend circuit known as the Circuit of Champions which consisted of Stafford on Friday night, Norwood Arena....Full Story
   THANKSGIVING by Rev. Don Rivers
Thanksgiving is a time of reflection. A time to look at all we have and humble ourselves before a gracious God. We don’t always get what we want and we don’t always understand the plans God has for us, but we can be confident that he loves and cares for us. How has God cared for you this past year? Greetings, in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Thanksgiving is a time for sharing. I see it in the lives of others as they give of themselves to help those less fortunate. A family stopped into our shop one day; a husband, wife, son and daughter picked up some hot drinks and muffins for the road. They were headed to pack up their Suburban and deliver Thanksgiving baskets to those in need. There was more to the story....Full Story
   CHAMP TRAIL: 11/22/16 by Phil Smith
The reality of the combination of the Northern and Southern Whelen Modified Tour venues is starting to settle in and it looks like a possible bad decision by NASCAR to do this. NASCAR can not get it thru their heads that most modified teams are made up by volunteers who actually work for a living and can not just drop everything to go racing up and down the east coast. Chances are Bob Garbarino will run a few races in the northeast with a yet to be named driver. Same thing goes for Mark Sypher who fields the Modified for Donnie Lia and it appears that Bobby Santos will not have a full time ride. Last season there were 16 owners and drivers that ran the entire northern circuit of 17 events. With at least three dropping off that leaves 13 that maybe will run all races....Full Story
   LARGE FIELDS EXPECTED FOR WALL STADIUM TURKEY DERBY
If the overflowing number of cars that were in the Wall Stadium Speedway pit area for the two pre-race practice sessions are any indication, the 43rd running of the Turkey Derby stock car classic at Wall Stadium Speedway could feature a record setting field in both quality and quantity. The event is presented on Friday, Saturday and Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend during the daylight hours. Among the Tour Type Modified standouts expressing interest in the annual classic are Matt Hirschman of Northampton, Pa., Jackson’s Steven Reed, Austin Kochenash of Danielsville, Pa., Dave Sapienza of Riverhead, N.Y., Howell speedster Eric Mauriello, Shaun Carrig of Little Falls, Les Hinckley of Windsor Locks, Ct., Holmdel’s Andrew Krause....Full Story
