   CHAMP TRAIL: 12/12/17 by Phil Smith
NASCAR held its Touring Series and weekly racing series banquets in Charlotte, NC this past weekend. In a wise move, NASCAR decided to not have a most popular driver in the Whelen Modified Tour Series. For the most part Milissa Fifield can be blamed for that because in previous years she stacked the computer voting in her favor. It would be fitting to select Teddy Christopher as the Most Popular Driver this season. Todd Gilliland was in a familiar situation when he took the stage at the Charlotte Convention Center at the NASCAR Hall of Fame Friday night. Gilliland wasn’t the only familiar face honored at the NASCAR Home Tracks Awards, officially receiving their NASCAR championship rings and trophies. Doug Coby received the hardware for his fifth NASCAR Whelen....Full Story

Congratulations to Martin Truex Jr who honored as NASCAR's newest Monster Cup champion in Las Vegas last week. It was fitting for Truex Jr. to be introduced as NASCAR's newest champion by his buddy Dale Earnhardt Jr. Earnhardt who helped Truex venture out of New Jersey to give it a go in NASCAR. Now, nearly 15 years later, Truex was on racing's biggest stage. Truex was presented the Championship Ring by NASCAR CEO Brian France who all but snubbed the new champion. The gesture showed a total lack of class. No wonder the grandstands at most events are only half full. France's father Bill France Jr and grandfather William H.G. France who founded NASCAR must be rolling in their graves. The sanctioning body paid tribute to those we lost in 2017....Full Story

The northeast Modified season wound up last weekend at the Wall Stadium in New Jersey with the Annual Turkey Derby on Friday and Saturday. Great fall weather brought out a packed house and an overflow of cars in the pit area at the track that was patterned after the Lonsdale Arena in Rhode Island.
The big news to come out of the Jersey shore track is the fact that Matt Hirschman didn’t win. Hometown favorite Jimmy Blewett did! Blewett started on the pole of the 150 lap event and led all ut three laps of the wreck marred event. Local favorites Andrew Krause was second and Ron Frees was third to complete an all Jersey podium for the event. Invader Ryan Preece was fourth. Kyle Elwood came back from being 2 laps down to a great 5th place finish. Blewett put....Full Story

Blewett also competed in the Dirt Modified and Snap-On Sportsman features where he finished 20th and 6th.

Thirty five years ago, in 1982, in Winston Cup action at Riverside California, Darrell Waltrip took the pole and finished third behind winner Tim Richmond. Third was good enough as Waltrip wrapped up the 1982 Winston Cup division championship, his second in a row. Ronnie Bouchard finished sixth.
Thirty years ago, in 1987, the Oswego Speedway, the undisputed Super Modified Capitol of the World announced that they had signed a sanction with NASCAR for four Winston Modified Tour events in 1988. A year later, those in power at Oswego would express their feelings that they were not happy with the way NASCAR ran their programs and would....Full Story

   A BLESSING by Rev. Don Rivers
As we begin to embrace the holidays with all the thanks and giving a thought came to mind. I wondered how we could keep the spirit of thankfulness and giving in our lives throughout the year. I wondered how I could be a blessing to someone each day. Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. As we prepare for the banquet circuit it causes us to reflect on the season past. We think about the races run, where we finished, the obstacles we overcame and the hours we spent pursuing a better result. Countless people to thank for their efforts supporting the team. When you get right down to it we are blessed. Preparation for the banquets can be a difficult time for me. One of the tasks involved is to review the season and remember those we have lost....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 44th 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, Dave Sapienza of Riverhead, N.Y., Shaun Carrig of Little Falls, Holmdel’s Andrew Krause, Earl Paules of Palmertown, Pa. and Long Island racer Kenny Darch. Also planning to compete in Tour Type Modified action are Brick’s....Full Story

Twenty five years ago, in 1992, NASCAR’s Winston Cup division saw the end of one era and the beginning of another. Richard Petty drove his last race at Atlanta and officially retired from driving. Rick Wilson was named as his replacement. It was also at Atlanta that Jeff Gordon made his Winston Cup debut.
Fifteen years ago in 2002, The Busch North Series got some good news at their awards banquet when NASCAR Touring Series Director Chris Boals announced that the successful television package with the Speed Channel had been renewed, with expanded national television coverage for the BNS in 2003 and beyond. This was a definite shot in the arm for competitors....Full Story
   LFR AND CHASE DOWLING RUNNING FOR NWMT CHAMPIONSHIP
After running select races together in 2017, NASCAR driver Chase Dowling and team owner Rob Fuller have announced that they will partner to run for a NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour (NWMT) championship in 2018. “This is something Chase and I have discussed throughout the season,” said Fuller, President of LFR. “With the success we had this season, it seemed like a good decision for both our sponsors and Chase to go after the championship.” In just nine NWMT races in 2017, Dowling earned his first career pole, led 21 laps and earned a career-best five Top-5 finishes in one season. It was one of his most productive seasons to date. “After our accomplishments we had in 2017, I can’t wait to run a full season with Rob and the LFR car,” said Dowling. “I feel..."....Full Story

Speaking of the Speedbowl, congratulations to Kyle Gero on his 2017 X-Car championship. Kyle is the son of Kim and Mike Gero and the grandson of the late George “Moose” Hewitt. “Our goal was to go out and race every single race like it was a must win,” Gero said. “We worked so hard week in and week out It was non-stop work. A lot of people didn’t put in the effort during the week in the shop that we did. My dad always says if you arrive at the track and have to work on your car, you’ve screwed up. You have to be ready when you get there.” Gero obviously was ready. He captured seven wins in 11 starts to capture the 2017 X-Car championship by 23 points over Wayne Shifflett. In 2018, Gero plans on moving up to the Limited Sportsman division at Thompson Speedway....Full Story

Forty years ago, in 1977, Geoff Bodine capped a successful season with double wins for the weekend. Chemung ran a 100-lap Open Competition event on Saturday. Following Bodine at the finish were Merv Treichler, George Kent, Maynard Troyer, and Eddie Flemke Sr. Westboro closed out their season with a 50 lapper on Sunday. After an all night ride, Bodine took that one too. Ronnie Bouchard finished second and was followed by George Murray, Bugsy Stevens, Joe Howard and John Rosati.
Thirty five years ago, in 1982, the only action was at Atlanta where Bobby Allison took the 500-mile win over Harry Gant....Full Story
 

In Loving Memory Of Howie

   HOWARD "HOWIE" ARTHUR HODGE prepared by Polly Reid
Saturday afternoon on January 28, 2017, Howard ‘Howie’ Arthur Hodge passed away at the St. Francis Hospital in Hartford, CT. Surrounded by family at the time of his passing, Howard was 77 years old.
Born on August 31, 1939 at the Hartford Hospital, Howard was the second of three children to Dorothy (Hoadley) and Leon Hodge.
His first few years were spent in Glastonbury, CT before the Hodge family moved to East Hartford where Howard went to school graduating from the East Hartford High School in 1957.
Growing up, Howard had a paper route for ‘quite a few years’. The pile of papers would be left on the front lawn and Howard would be responsible for folding them, putting them in the big cloth bag then ride around the neighborhood delivering the Hartford Times. His sister Lois fondly remembers his bicycle that ‘he fixed up until it was like a motorcycle’ complete with a windshield, skirts....Full Story
