Richie Evans and Maynard Troyer Careers Added to ARRA Website!


Recommended Posts

Ringoes,NJ – ARRA - - Auto Racing Research Associates are proud to announce that they have added two more pages to their roster of elite drivers who have had their career statistics researched and documented to an archive that race fans, journalists, etc can then access for all time so that this information is not lost to time.  
  Richie Evans and Maynard Troyer were absolute GIANTS in Northeast asphalt modified racing.  Richie is far and wide considered undeniably the best there ever was in the division!  The fun loving, cantankerous and always competitive driver from Rome, NY earned the respect of drivers and fans alike until an untimely accident in practice at the Martinsville Speedway unfortunately ended his life in 1985.
  Maynard Troyer was an asphalt modified driver competing regularly alongside of Evans and earned his share of wins and glory along the way.  His notoriety for always fielding sharp looking creations was popular with the fans and Troyer later went on to establish a very successful asphalt modified chassis building business that eventually grew to include a just as successful dirt modified chassis enterprise.  
  “There were always two drivers that I wanted to have a complete file on their careers…documenting their complete record of feature wins.”  noted  ARRA President Fred Voorhees.  “I completed the research on “Barefoot” Bob McCreadie a few years ago.  He was one.  The other was Richie Evans and darned it if one of our ARRA historians….Jay Mooney, just recently submitted a complete history behind Richie!  I was ecstatic to say the least.  I couldn’t wait till the next day to begin the preparatory work needed to put together a page for Richie.  I was up till around midnight that same night beginning the formatting needed to set it all up.”
  In contacting Jay to chat about this new submission, Voorhees was informed that Jay was putting the finishing touches on another top driver research with the Maynard Troyer work.   “It was like icing on the cake!” related Fred.  “Maynard was never a slouch behind the wheel of whatever car he happened to be in….most of the time immaculately painted machines that captured the eye!   I am equally elated at the submission of Maynard’s files.”
  Both the Evans and Troyer pages are now up and ready to be viewed on the ever growing ARRA website of racing statistics.  https://sites.google.com/site/arradocumentingracinghistory/

  ARRA just recently moved their website to new digs and this presents many opportunities for a much more enjoyable experience when you visit the ever growing statistical website.  President Fred Voorhees invites all race fans to visit it and browse around.  “I had to completely rebuild the site from scratch.” mentioned Voorhees.  “In the beginning, there were many fans that were having a problem opening up files on the site.  I straightened that out after some investigating the new format and right now…there are very few people having problems with little glitches.  I would like anyone still having a problem to let me know.  At this point..it would seem that the problem is somewhere on their end, but I am hoping that in the very near future…everyone will be able to enjoy every page of our site.”
Auto Racing Research Associates is a group of two dozen auto racing historians across the country banded together for the purpose of the research, documentation and displaying of auto racing history such as driver win statistics, as well as track, racing series’ and organizations histories and also the background of racing personalities, particular cars from the past and various other interesting facts of racing history that should not be forgotten.

I agree. I think that might be a bad auto correct or someone maybe misused that word. It is difficult for someone to be fun-loving and cantankerous.

Nope....I misused the word.  And you would think that having a Websters New Dictionary right next to me in a drawer, I would have checked.  My bad...nothing but respect for the guy!  Always and forever.

Actually yes he was a very fun loving guy, especially when he was winning a lot. So yeah most the time. But he could get irritated when things weren't going the right way or someone got pushy or tried to prove their man hood on the track.  I don't take it as a bad thing.

Evans was a bit before my time but I'm a stats guy, and looking at his stats all I can say is "wow".  There's good reason one of the first things you see when you walk into the Nascar Hall of Fame is his orange 61 Mod.

Yeah, Richie had big years every year. I didn't realize it until you actually see it in print.

Agreed.  It's easy to forget how consistent he was and the pace which he was still winning.

His last year was the first year for the Modified Tour. He won 12 out of 28 races (no one else won more than 4) and won the title by over 120 points even though he missed the last race because of his accident.
