Rule Changes to Mini Stock and Thunder

New rule changes in Mini stock and Thunder.

Mini Stock - new tire rule -  205/50/15 tire is allowed and a 1/8” tread depth rule will be enforced.

Thunder - new in 2014 and beyond - The GM metric chassis will be the only chassis allowed in this class. Currently all of our Thunder cars run the chassis and as such moving forward will be the only one allowed. A full tubular GM metric chassis will be allowed but they must have the same pick up points as a stock GM metric chassis. We will be removing the camaro, leaf springed cars and camaro clipped cars from the eligible list of chassis's.

The revised 2014 rules will be updated shortly to reflect these changes and the others made to date.

Thunder ? - Now Watch for the Lightning

If you had asked me two months ago what was going to be the car count for the Thunder Car Class, I would have said same as last year. That would have been about 5 to 6 cars. They say good things come to those who wait, and I have been waiting three years for it to happen, but I am now happy with our Thunder car count for 2014. It is still early and we may see even more cars coming, but at this point, we are looking at 7 to 8 more Thunder cars this year compared to last year. This means we are expecting to have a minimum 12 car field each and every week.

When you put the "Thunder Back in the Pines" you will see some lightning on the track with a great field of cars out there giving all of you, one heck of a show. Even though we have a number of new cars, there still is a number of Thunder Cars out there gathering dust. It is time to get them out as well and bring them back to the track. I know of about 3 to 4 Thunders that could make it out, along with a couple still for sale looking for a new driver and team. If we can do this together, that would make it a 16-20 car field. Can you imagine what that would be like. It will be something we haven't seen in 20 years.

If you have a Thunder Car , now is the time to bring it back to CCS. Thinking of racing in the Thunder Class and do not have a car and are looking for one? Give me call and maybe I can help.

Lets make 2014 the best and biggest for our Thunder Class in years.

I hope to see you at the races....

MoreThunder Cars Coming.

It appears with the latest addition to the body rule in Thunder class allowing the Truck body back has created a little bit of interest. Here is the latest addition to the Neil Leblond Team from Buckingham, PQ. They will be running two cars, sorry 1 truck and 1 car, at CCS in 2014. Neil's father is expected to be driving the latest addition to their team. They will also have the distinction of being the only father and son racing team at CCS on the track at the same time.

Neil has also confirmed that a friend of his has bought another truck and will be out for the 2014 season. CCS is also working with a few other people who may be coming to our Thunder Class in 2014. It is going to be a very exciting class this year and I am looking forward to seeing a much bigger class of Thunders out their this year.

Stay tuned for more Thunder Car news as it becomes available.

Sportsman Modifieds Keep on Coming !

Dana Aikins, our 2013 Sportsman Modified Champion, has stepped back into the asphalt circle that is Capital City Speedway for 2014. Dana was one of our biggest supporters in the Sportsman class last year, and when we said we were doing it again in 2014, Dana simply said " I will see you again in 2014". I met Dana for the first time last year, and all I can say is I wish I had more just like him. He has a real passion for the sport, and when we said we were going to add the Sportsman class in 2013, he stated he would be here for the series and asked me how he could help make it work. I am looking forward to having Dana back in 2014 and watching him try to make it two in a row. One thing I do know is that Dana will have to bring his "A" game this year as there are a number of Sportsman drivers coming with checkered flags in their plans for 2014. This class will be one to watch this year as the car counts will grow, as well as the competitiveness of the entire field.

Driver Info:
Dana is an architectural / structural designer and project manager for an architectural, engineering, and land surveying company located in Watertown, NY. Dana’s father, Larry Aikins, competed at several dirt tracks in central New York in the late 1960’s. Their entire family grew up around dirt track racing. As a child Dana often traveled to the local dirt track with his father, one of his uncles, or anyone else who might be going. Most Sundays were spent tagging alone with and watching his cousin, Bret Belden win at the Utica-Rome Speedway.
Dana began racing, dirt circle track, in the Street Stock division at Can-Am Speedway in LaFargville, NY in 2001. In 2004 he ventured to the Brockville Ontario Speedway, where he one in his first appearance, and went on to win 4 races and the Track Championship that year. Dana continued to compete in the Street Stock division throughout all of New York State, Ontario, and Quebec, competing up to five nights a week for several seasons. In the Street Stock division he compiled 23 feature wins and one track championship, as well as numerous top five finishes in features and point championships, by the end of 2008.
Dana moved to the Sportsman Modified division in 2009. In the sportsman division he has regularly competed two to three nights per week throughout New York and Ontario, winning three feature races and one series championship in 2010, and the track championship at Capital City Speedway in 2013 along. Dana has competed at 17 dirt tracks and 3 asphalt tracks. His most memorable wins would be have been the first ever win at Brockville Ontario Speedway in 2004, 100 lap Street Stock “King of the Hill” race at Ransomville Speedway in 2005, competing at the “Steel Palace” Oswego Speedway in a sportsman modified in 2012, and the final win with Owner/Sponsor/Uncle Glen A. Gould at Mohawk International Speedway in 2012.
Away from the track Dana enjoys hunting, fishing, spending time with his family and three children Norah, Devin, and Ryan, as well as almost any form of racing. This year, 2014, will make the 14th consecutive year that Dana, and the Aikins Racing team will compete on the dirt/asphalt circuit, expect to see them in action at the Brockville Ontario Speedway, and Capital City Speedway.
