Welcome to Elliott Racing

2014 will mark our 46th season of consecutive stock car racing. We are very happy with the schedule of races we have planned for our many fans, and to support the local tracks and our sponsors. Perhaps most important to us is having Quaker State back with us for an amazing 41st season. We are so thankful for their support for our race team and will be doing more shows this summer than in the past to support all our wonderful sponsors and this awesome sport........We are proud to have coming back in 2014 Lincoln Welders for the 12th season, JDS returns for the 10th year with us. The rest of our sponsor team include, Timber Green Landscaping, Grind Stone Landscaping, Flamboro Machine Shop, Creative Edge, Embroidme Open Doors, Scripture Union, PPG, Drew Mack, Arctica Home Heating and Air Conditioning, and Permatex. We appreciate the support of all of these wonderful sponsors. We are also excited to have with us for the first time as team sponsors, Direct Energy and Oakville Trailers........ As we head into our 46th year of non stop racing, this season has a few exciting things to look forward to. We are very close to a milestone of 700 consecutive nights racing. We have a total of 1136 nights prior to the start of this season, and of those, 687 have been a consistent streak since June of 1987. Our first priority this year is to hit the 700 night mark, and it will happen on the 13th race of 2014 schedule. If there are no rain outs, that special night will fall on July 5th at Capital City Speedway. This could be a double historic night for us if the 700th night happens at Capital City because it will also be our first ever race at this track near Ottawa. We plan to have Frisbees for the fans and competitors for that night, highlighting the 700 nights..........We will be giving our full commitment to the 13 race OSCAAR Modified schedule. Our plan is to race all the Modified shows to compete for the Championship and "Rookie of the Year" honors. Our Mod will be the fastest car ever brought to the races by Gary Elliott Motorsports..........We will dedicate most of the Late Model races to Sunset Speedway, however, we will not be points contenders because of the conflict in scheduling with the Modified. There are 4 nights where both the Mod and Late Model compete, and we will be supporting the Mod series first. However, it is possible to get a replacement driver for 2 of the 4 races we will miss, that is the max a replacement driver can fill in to accumulate points. At this time we hope our grand son Gehrig can run 2 of those four, possibly more..........we also plan to continue our streak of perfect attendance seasons with the Modified. We are at 37 seasons now and the goal is to reach 40 before we do our final lap in this awesome sport 5 years from now, God willing.........Our grand children will race in 2014. Lauren will compete in the full Mini Stock schedule at Sunset Speedway and Gehrig will compete in all the special events at all tracks, including the OSCAAR Mini Stock shows.........we also are very thankful for our friends in our pit crews. Bob Pereira, Matt Smith, Jim Hulzinga, Ryan Elliott, Jason Green, Peter Shelton, Don Mierzswinski, are committed to help us as often as possible during the season. David Elliott will lend his support for our grand children whenever he is available. Shirley will organize and run the Mini Stock team as well as support both the Mod and Late Model when she isn't helping Gehrig and Lauren...........we will be supporting Project Track Champion, Access Motorsports in the world of stock car racing, geared to the handicapped persons who may want to know more about race cars and get involved at one of the races we attend. All our cars will support the PTCAM logo........... 2014 is going to be a huge season for us and we hope to make it a memorable year as we focus on racing hard, showing our cars and having fun. Weekly races are updated on the Message Board in General Chat under "Diary Of A Season 2014" check it out while you are here, as well as the rest of the history we have posted...........thanks for visiting our web site, please support our sport and our sponsors when ever you can......God bless.

Thursday September 18th 125 Lap Invitational for Limited Late Models Sunset Speedway
    Tonight will be the final race of the season at Sunset Speedway before Velocity, with the running of the first Limited Late Model Championship Invitational. Our hope is to finish in the top 10 with our car and stay out of trouble. We plan on running at Barrie Speedway on Saturday for the Garry Reynolds Memorial so staying out of trouble and finishing in the top 10 would be awesome. This race will attract a lot of good cars, and should be an exciting race....hope to see all our fans there.

First Feature Win In 176 Nights....First In Our Modified
    The feature win at Full Throttle on September 12th was our first in 6 years, accumulating 176 nights of racing. Pictured with me are Paul Douglas, Dave Hennessey and Marty Hagen. Crew member Matt Smith was racing his tractor on this night and won both his heat and feature, and Matt and his son Jonathan came to the track after their event. Bob Pereira was not present but was catalyst in helping keep are Mod in top running form.........It sure was nice to win, and to beat Gary McLean, one of the best short track racers in Ontario, and the top Modified driver without a doubt.........we also finished 2nd in the Full Throttle Open Wheel Modified points series and look forward to racing there again for the final Mod race of the season, October 3rd......our next race is with the Late Model, tonight at Sunset Speedway for the Limited Late Model 125 Lap Championship race. Hope to see all a full house of fans at the track.

First Feature Win In One Of Our Own Cars Since 2008
    What a night, we won our first feature in 6 years last night at Full Throttle Speedway holding off Modified legend, Gary McLean for an exciting hard fought checker. It was our 5th win of the season, our 4th in the Modified and now we have won a feature in every class that we have owned a race car. It was our career 37th feature win, and combined with our 3rd in the next race, gave us 2nd in the point standings at Full Throttle Speedway. Our team, most pictured here, Paul Dave and Marty, as well as Jason, were also over the top excited, thanks to them and the rest of crew who could not be there, for all their help throughout the season to help get us here. This win was such a confidence builder because not only was it so good to win the main event, but to beat Gary Mclean was an honor. He won the Championship at Full Throttle for 2014......our next race is tonight at Sunset Speedway, our 30th night of racing......Big thank you to all our sponsors who have been so awesome in 2014 as well.........we could not compete for the full Sunset schedule because of the conflict with OSCAAR, the series we committed to in 2014, but we did make many of the shows and look forward to racing there tonight...........hope to see our friends and fans there.

Good Night In The Mod With OMSR and The Pro Late Models...David Wins 6th Feature in 2014
We ran our Late Model at Flamboro Speedway on Saturday night to support John Casale and the OMSR club was there as well, so we got to race our Mod with them. This was a very special night, Memorial Night to remember all the former Flamboro drivers who have passed away. Every drivers name was read out, with Amazing Grace playing softly in the background..............It was a fun night for our team. Our Late Model was just there to help with car count. We are still running 180 lap tires with 70 heat cycles on them, but I had no expenses tire wise and we made money for a change, the car cornered great and we didn't come close to getting lapped. Newer tires would have helped us for sure.....The Mod was much more competitive. Special thanks to Rob James for loaning me tires for this race. We had trouble getting through the ends in the first 2 sets of hot laps. A bunch of adjustments made the car faster but getting caught in traffic and taking too long to get by a few cars took away a top 4 finish, but we were damage free and no extra costs for tires......the full story is on our Message Board. Go to General Chat and then click on "Diary of a Season 2014".....congratulations to David for another win in this awesome season he is having. He also won his heat race and leads Flamboro Late Model points........Special thanks to Clarke Motorsports Communications for this Modified photo.

Late Model Returns To Varney, To Race At Full Throttle September 5th
    We will be heading to Full Throttle Speedway this coming Friday to race in the Late Model class. It will be our first time back since July 2013. Looking forward to trying to run with the boys up north. The 602 should be okay because of it being such a small track, handling will be most important. Dave Hennessey and Paul Douglas will come with me, so far, I have called others but no word yet. Then Bob and Marty will head to Flamboro to help with the Late Model and maybe the Mod so I can race with OMRS as a test for Octoberfest.....we will hit 29 nights racing after this weekend, matching our last 2 seasons. Once we hit 33 nights raced, it will be the second most in one season, dating back to 1990 when we raced 39 nights. Hope we can be somewhat competitive at Full Throttle, looking forward to being able to race there.
