On Monday, February 20th the tour type modifieds starred in their first night of ground pounding racing at New Smyrna Speedway. Twenty-four modifieds were scheduled to take the green flag and grandstands were packed with fans ready for racing. So the night was staged for a great night of racing. JR Bertuccio was fastest in practice, third fastest in qualifying and started the race fourth after a redraw.

He remained in the second spot until he passed for the lead after a caution on lap 31. From there he held off Ryan Preece and later Matt Hirschman to pass the finish line and take....Full Story    LIVE Replay with Denise DuPont    Photo Gallery by Jim DuPont

   LET'S DIG IN by Rev. Don Rivers
Me have taken some broad strokes as we looked at this Winter Bible Study passage, now it is time to dig in. Just like taking a new car to the track, you do some laps, get a feel for it and then the time comes to make it go fast. It is time to take this passage apart, verse by verse and commit to letting it make a difference in our lives. Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Before you can go fast in a racecar you have to get comfortable with it. You have to get a feel for it and learn what the limits are. The same with Scripture, there is the big picture, a feel for the entire message. Then you take a closer look, like making fine adjustments to make everything work together for a complete understanding....Full Story

   CHAMP TRAIL: 02/14/17 by Phil Smith
The Myrtle Beach Speedway in South Carolina presented the 2nd annual IceBreaker this past Saturday, February 11. The 2nd annual IceBreaker was the speedway’s first race of the 2017 season. Drivers of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series, as well as Modifieds, Chargers, Mini Stocks and Vintage cars were on hand. Modified competitors looking to get a leg up on the season looked at the event as somewhat of a practice session for the March beginning of the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Series. A mere 13 cars went to post for the Modified 50 lapper. As they all found out, Myrtle Beach has an extremely abrasive surface, which eats tires and ruins competition. Doug Coby was the eventual winner. Coby was the pole sitter and immediately dropped....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, streamers and side view mirrors.
Howard became interested in short wave radio and after being a SWL, short- wave listener, he....Full Story    A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words
