Steve-O No. 1 — and No. 2

Steven DeLonjay’s fourth straight modified track title accomplished two things. It not only cemented Steve-O’s firm hold on the No. 1 ranking in the series’ UMP era at the track, it pulled him closer to his Hall of Fame dad in the premier modified division’s all-time listing. Steven has such a large lead in the […]

It’s Dunker, no question

Tony Dunker could skip the 2015 season and still be the No. 1-ranked sport mod driver at Quincy Raceways. That’s how much Dunker’s No. 3 car has dominated the 3-year-old series (4-year-old if you count four races in late 2011). Dunker’s third straight championship was never in doubt this summer, but there’s a group of […]

Huls moves into No. 1 ranking

There’s a new No. 1-ranked stock car driver in town, and he’s a honest guy. Honest Abe Huls has finally worked his way into the catbird seat. A third track championship can do that for a guy. Huls’ most recent title moved him past two-time track champ and perennial contender Terry Houston. Houston had held […]

Becerra No. 1, but Abbott waiting in wings

Austen Becerra will leave the sport compact division at Quincy Raceways as No. 1 in the series’ all-time rankings. Becerra, who is scheduled to drive a sport mod in 2015, won his second straight sport compact championship this year — and with it the 15 points that go to a series champion in the rankings […]

Kenny D: Our goals for 2015 really aren’t a whole lot different than they were for this year. Hopefully, we move even further down […]

Burgtorf leads All-Dirt late model team

Mark Burgtorf’s 15th track championship and overall consistency — minus that late August hiccup — paved the way for his second Stevie Dirt Late Model Driver of the Year award. Burgtorf was also lauded in 2009. Burgtorf will likely share the honor with car owner Rick Frankel, who offered Burgtorf the chance to drive the […]

Does destiny await DeLonjay?

Steven DeLonjay now has the opportunity to go where no Quincy Raceways modified driver has gone before. No other mod driver in track history has ever won five straight championships, but DeLonjay will have that chance in 2015. This year’s track title was his fourth straight, tying him with his dad, Hank “The Crank” DeLonjay, […]

Viva El Presidente!

Tony Dunker  has been to the sport mod series at the Bullring what Judge Roy Bean was to the old west: Judge, jury and executioner. While some of the field did commendable work in “catching up” to Dunker this season — well, at least little bit — he still rolled to a semi-comfortable track championship. […]
