They say the finer things in life don't come by some great design or plan they just fall into place. Sometimes things that are the most enjoyable experiences are the ones that just happen. No plan, no design, it just happens. Well one of the most enjoyable experiences Iâ€™ve had in racing in the last 5 years was something as simple as watching racing dvd's. Not just any racing dvd's oh no, not when Danny Ody is the master of the remote, of course they'd have to be from the archives on the Track
Check out this: Wayne Robertson goes on to win the BRP Can-Am Series Championship. At the start of the year, Wayne jumped out with the lead after the second BRP Series event which took place at the Woodhull Raceway on May 31st. Robertson won four events this season including both BRP Series events at the Woodhull Raceway (May 31st and September 11th), the only event at the Humberstone Speedway (June 20th), and the only event at the McKean County Raceway (August 19th). Robertson had led BRP Serie
We attended Super Dirt Week. It was awesome racing. However, Did I miss something about saluting the troops on Saturday? I want to acknowledge and thank the drives that took the time to shake hands with the honored soldiers that were on the podium when they you were introduced. To the other drivers who totally ignored our soldiers, and you know who you are, you should be ashamed of yourselves for thinking you were the important ones being recognized. Maybe at the next drivers meeting there sh
Seriously, how can anyone dislike Stewie?
First i remember when he finished in the top 5 prolly 2007 or 2008 and he was a ball of fun after the race, and i got a picture of him & the kid from the sandlot. LOL (sorry don't know his real name but they were a blast) Tom Cullen told me at Rolling Wheels the kids real name but i forgot, sorry bud. I'll call him Porter, its a celebrity nickname. lol
Now you go to doug's dirt diary and listen to Stew's interview and to be honest, you'll hear a
Two words, VICTORY LANE....Thats where you can find CVD's #1C Teo modified parked after every race event the Oley Pa racer enters these days....Everyone knows CVD is a SUPERSTAR modified racer, his resume consists of numerous track championships, and hundreds of feature wins at tracks all over the Northeast and even Florida....He's been a mainstay on the Pa SBM scene for over 25 yrs, being a dominate racer at Big Diamond Raceway, Grandview Speedway (he's the leading all time feature winner at bo
Now not being married to a Friday night race place has allowed us the opportunity to travel around & see some great racing speedplants that we otherwise wouldn't be able to visit. We all know how the trip to Brewerton went, as i raved about the place and will be back for sure. (yeah Shane, i'mma take you up on that lol)
Well, this past week we decided to take a trip to the Ulster County Bullring, Accord Speedway. For a couple weeks now Jeff Johnson the man in the trailer at Jumpin' Jacks
Well since one of my favorite tracks put pavement down and the other Friday night stop no longer a thought in my head, we decided to take a trip to someplace we've never been, which led us to the Brewerton Speedway for the first time.
Now i gotta admit, reading about it, the names of the drivers that race there, and the sheer magnatude of the press it gets I expected to see this larger than life D shaped speedway where the drivers were 3 foot taller than everyone else and the track was made wit
The Rockin' Race Report is back, and this edition is all about T-Mac, Tim McCreadie. The World of Outlaws mega-star and New York State racing immortal came home to take a shot at winning the Victoria 200, a win in this crown jewel dirt modified racing event has eluded him up to this point in his spectacular career. The 2006 World Of Outlaws Late Model Series champ came up clutch, with an impressive win, and took home the $10,000 top prize to the cheers of the appreciative and partis
Thereâ€™s a tour making a serious bid to dethrone the Super Dirt Series as the premier level of dirt modified racing in the northeast. The RoC Tour, which began its sixth season of competition last weekend, is finally cutting into the huge gap that Dirt held over the rest of the modified racing world.
Selinsgrove Speedway has contributed to RoCâ€™s recent surge. The race being held early in the year, when no other tracks are running, obviously helps the car counts. With nothing else to do, dr

Hey everyone, and welcome back. Well it's now February and it's time to start the wheels rolling on the up and coming race season. There is a lot of really big news around here that I will share with all of you. In this edition of my race blog I will cover a few topics such as The NYDCA banquet we attended in January, the RACE 101 program in North Carolina, and the details of our DIRTCar Sportsman season that lies ahead.
To start, the NYDCA banquet in January was another great event held by B
Well, its the end of the year, again. It has been one heck of a year for us as a team, a family, and a racing community. From winning one for the troops, to losing important people at the track, there have been ups and downs but at the end of it all we are still here givin' er.
The 2009 racing season started out in Florida during the winter nationals in Tampa Florida. Ending on the reserve at Oshweken Speedway in Caledonia Ontario. All the races from the beginning to the end of the season
Well, it was time to give out the awards. The 2009 Merrittville Speedway banquet was a great time, but I'm a bit biased due to the hardware that we brought home that night. I apologize for blurry pictures, apparently my mom can't hold a camera steady when taking pictures haha.
The night was full of surprises, including a couple of awards that I never thought I would ever receive in my racing career. Well to start the night off right we where presented our second in points trophy and money. As
With the end of the 2009 racing season approaching at an alarming rate, let's take a look back at one of the biggest events in all of American racing folklore, Super Dirt Week XXXVIII, at the New York State Fairgrounds, in Syracuse, NY. The track at the Fairgrounds is a flat 1 mile widow maker that has destroyed as many race cars as it has created legends.
On Sunday afternoon of Super Dirt Week XXXVIII, a man they call "Super" Matt Sheppard beat back 43 competitors and put all reas
The racing season will conclude this weekend with the first annual North East Fall Nationals, and I will take this time to make some predictions in all of the classes that will be competing this weekend. Sprint Cars, Sportsman and Modified qualifying will fill out Saturday afternoon's schedule with the Modified 100 lapper set for Sunday afternoon with Street Stocks and Pro Stocks. The Modifieds, Sportsman and Pro Stock events will all be Mr. DIRTcar series events.
On Saturday, roughly 30 spr
I thought it fitting that I would squeeze an entry in on summers last few hours (just heard on the tube that summer is over at 5 18 today). Well,,, like I have said in previous blogs it has been a busy summer for the Plazek clan. Over Labor day weekend (Labour for those Canadians reading) Plazek Racing went to Walton MX Park once again for a CMRC race event. It was a two day affair that spread our teams motos over the two days. I took the old Pace Arrow up there as I crossed my fingers that it w
Well, the last race of the season has come and gone. Also possibly being my last race in a Mod-lite as everything is for sale so we can go Sportsman next year.
Off to Oshweken for the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals. We were the only other class other than the sprints which is probably a great idea because they had over 70 sprints in attendance. The track was very very slick after 2 days of racing on it. This being the 3rd night. We had double features, with the first feature being lined up by
Newly crowned Modern Corporation Open Wheel Lite Champion Jamie Gilbert was quick to lead the 25 lap Rose Webber Invitational after passing Andy Hennigar of Ankeny Iowa before one lap was in the books.
Gilbert was hoping for some home track advantage and before caution slowed the field on lap 7 â€“ heâ€™d opened up a 10 car lead over Steve White of Laurel Delaware.

Rick Brubacher eventually took control of the runner-up spot while Young had pulled away to a good lead.

The start of the Modern Corporation Open Wheel Lite Feature had Kelly Mason in top spot before Kory Howe became the new leader along the backstretch of lap 1.
A lap 2 caution slowed the field and one driver in particular - Jamie Gilbert who had advanced quite a number of positions in the early going.
Howe set the pace on the restart but very quickly â€“ the new leader was Gilbert â€“ t
Militia of Motor Heads,
Been a long time since we Rock & Rolled on here, so here goes. An installment of the Rockin' Race Report. We'll cover my travels from the month of racing that was August. All the great people, wonderful places and radical cars that came into view. One thing that surprises me the most about racing, is that no matter how far away from home I travel, The people I meet along the way always make me feel as though I've never left home.
