A Blast from the Past

Well, we need to get the chatter goin' in here seeing as the 2024 supermodified season is about to start. Practice for all divisions at the Big O this Saturday. NESS opens their season at White Mountain Motorsports Park on Sunday.

1970 July...54 years ago...I was just few months away from my 11th birthday and my 18 year old brother gets a new record album to play on our family's living room stereo console. The album is called "James Gang Rides Again". Anyone remember that album? The lead guitarist/vocalist (Joe Walsh)? The album is best known for the hit "Funk 49", but there is another song on it that I've always liked and is quite a masterpiece...it's called "The Bomber"...


Anyone remember this? Hard to believe it's 54 years old.

Music always ties me to other memories...born and raised in Guelph, Ontario, in 1970 we went to Delaware Speedway to see the supermodifieds race regularly. I had yet make the trek to Oswego, but had got to see some great drivers/cars at Flamboro and Delaware, including Harv Lennox, Jack Greedy, Warren Coniam, John Clapham, Gary Witter, Norm Mackereth and Jimmy Howard (loved that yellow rear-engined #38)...just to name a few. Arguably, 1970 was part of the golden age of supermodified racing when you could "run what you brung"...front engine, rear engine, big block, small block, winged or unwinged. Them was the good old days when I cut my supermodified teeth.
