Talk:Modified stock car racing
|WikiProject Motorsport||(Rated Start-class, Mid-importance)|
I really need some strong info for the history section...and I'm not real happy about the "hybrids and scale cars section." It's not that don't mind it.....the word "hybrid" seems WRONG here, even though that's exactly what the super mods and highland's mods are, hybrids of 2 separate classes.
Pix I want to use
Here's the list of the pix I'd like to use on this project:

- Should we call this article "Modified racing" or "Modified racing in the United States"? Royalbroil 20:14, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
Grrr....this is starting to get aggravating finding references for facts I know. I can't find a single, hard fact online to back up races I've watched on TV. I can't find a shred of evidence that the NASCAR Mods, formerly featherlite mods, ever set tire to track at WGI, other than a single sentence stating that some driver I've never heard of would be driving a modified there (and that article had to have been from around 95 or so....look at the references section to see what I mean). Another thing.....I've watched .....I don't know how many..... ASA SouthWEST modified races from Lake Havesu Raceway (in Colorado), but I can't find any info on that either. Neither ASA's site, nor LHR's site say a single word about the ASA SW Tour, just the ASA truck series. I watched them all winter on Altitude Sports and Entertainment on my DirecTv. I thought it was weird that the ASA would have 2 totally different mod series with 2 totally different cars. One was the SE tour (on this page) and the other looked like IMCA mods, the SW Tour. It also figures that the SW tour races aren't being broadcast right now, so I can't find/check them on my DirecTv.
- Re-writes, more re-writes, and still more modifications. I don't know if I'm going to be able to actually complete this article. Every time I try to find one fact, I come up with 2 or 3 more tidbits or sanctioning bodies to add (added The AMRA, or American Motor Racing Association to the IMCA/WISSOTA/UMP section and 3 other outlaw modified sanctioning bodies). This might be an ongoing project. JLG 2701 18:38, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
About the name.....
I was thinking about naming it just Modifieds, so that it could easily be used as a wikilink, much like using Late model when talking about UMP Late Models. What say you?? JLG 2701 18:38, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
- SK Modified by Jack Arute, Sr. (Jack Arute's father)
- Orange County, East Coast Modifieds plus history
- Stock car history, has mentioning about East Coast and IMCA modified histories
- Midwest Modified Association, looks like an interesting local division
- USMTS have a national tour
You can publish this article. I don't have enough time to do it justice, so I'll add to it after it becomes active. I bet it will be edited a lot because there are so many types of Modifieds. Royalbroil 22:59, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
