Vintage Modifieds Coming to Capital City Speedwway?

Paul Billings, a local Vintage Modifed owner, was down at the track last Saturday and did some laps to see if Capital City Speedway worked for the Vintage Modifieds. I think the smile on Paul's face is still there. Paul had a blast drifting through the corners with his car,and has passed along the good news to the rest of the club. We are expecting a few more to come down May 16 to give the track a try, and to see how everyone else likes it. If all goes well, we should see this group down at least once this season and possibly more if we can work out  something with them. I must say that it was exciting to watch Paul go around, and I can't imagine the show if we had 15 of them.

Stay tuned for more details. We will let you know when and if this happens.

"Meet the Drivers" Schedule Now Posted

New this year, is "Meet the Drivers Night". Every week we will have new drivers at the front gate for you to meet.

Our first look at the new # 59 Thunder Car of Keith Riddell

We have our first glimpse of the new 59 car of Keith Riddell. Keith will be competing in the Thunder Class this year and will be running for "Rookie of the Year" in 2012. Keith has been racing rotax Go Karts with NCKC the last few years and is excited about his move to Capital City Speedway.

Keith would like to thank his new sponsor " Stittsville Appliance Service". Mike Wilson, the owner, specializes in home appliance service and is the guy to call if you have a problem with your appliances. Keith would like to thank Julio Pasinetti for his help and guidance in getting this car put back together and goes on to say;
"Julio Pasinetti is definitely the go to guy for Thunder Cars". Keith writes " I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Todd Gow for his help and generosity. Without him, none of this would have happened.

After a complete tear down of the car and reassembly by Keith, the car should be ready by the end of the week with just the motor and transmission to be installed. Keith is hoping that once it is all back together, it works.

 Keith is looking for a xl fire suit, shoe size 11 and a neck restraint, so if you have one for sale let me know and I will forward that to Keith.

On a final note, Keith wishes all of you a great season.

Chris Zieran starts his season with a Win.

If last Saturday was a glimpse of the future for things to come from Chris Zieran and Crew Chief Jason Baker, things will get interesting for Capital City Speedway in the Legends class this year. Chris went down and ran at Evans Mills on Saturday and lead every lap of the heat and every lap of the  feature, to take home his first checkered flag of the season. Local Legend driver, Chad Windsor finished second.

Congratulations to Chris and his team for their first win of the season.
