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.

Rick Woolner Memorial July 26th

Rick Woolner
Sauble Speedway To Host OSCAAR Modified Rick Woolner Memorial 50 Lapper
    This Saturday, July 26th, at Sauble Speedway, will be the biggest race of the year for the OSCAAR Mods. Rick Woolner, a long time racer at Varney and other Ontario tracks will be remembered in this annual race designated to the OSCAAR Modifieds. I am proud and privileged to be part of this memorial event and working hard on our car so we can bring the Quaker State Lincoln Welders Mod to victory lane......The Woolner family has gone over the top to make this annual event the best yet. They have spear headed the selling of laps to sponsors and teams to make this the richest purse of the season. There are many bonuses in this race to fastest qualifier, the race winner, certain lap leaders, hard luck, slowest lap time and a hard charger for the car that starts in their qualified spot and passes more cars than anyone else.........The format for this special race event is time trials to determine starting spots for heats and then cars passed in the heats to determine the starting spot for the feature. The race is 50 laps so it will give lots of time for the faster cars to get through the traffic, unless they are up front....We are looking forward to this coming weekend, as we do for all races, but this one has a special meaning and therefore the race of the year for most OSCAAR Mods and myself......hope to see many of our fans there, and if you would like to sponsor a lap, you can email me at gelliot@cogeco.ca....Thanks for visiting our site


 

Full Throttle Speedway Friday Night

Brent McLean #7 Fast At Full Throttle
    We head back to Full Throttle Speedway Friday for Twin 20's. Gary McLean has pretty well dominated the 3 nights we've been there this year, although his cousin Brent has given him a run a few times. We have struggled trying to race with American Racers, that are just not near soft enough. I think if the races were 50 laps, they would be better but in a short run they get eaten up by the sticky Hoosier tires.......we will be using Hoosier tomorrow but not sure how it will help us. Hoping to do better tomorrow night but staying out of trouble is our race program right now. We don't want to get beat up here with the biggest race of the year next weekend for the Mods...........We will be racing our Late Model at Sunset Speedway on Saturday July 19th and Lauren will race her Mini Stock. Hope to see our friends and fans at one or both of these races.


 

Return To Flamboro Speedway

July 12th

Flamboro Return Did What It Was Suppose To
    We were on display on Saturday in Vaughan to support the local Food Bank and had intended to go to Sunset Speedway right after. That wasn't going to work because Sunset Late Models, Thunder Cars and Mini Stocks were at Suable for the first in the Home and Home series. On Sunday we were scheduled to go to Kawartha with the OSCAAR Modified and it made more sense to go to Flamboro and be home early so we could leave early Sunday morning for the long trip to Peterborough. So during the week David mounted his 8" American Racer tires, the ones he won with on May 31st, and Adam Lockwood at Grisdale's gave me 4 discarded 8" American Racers so we would have spares. Our intent was to not miss a night we had scheduled, although we changed the location, and being at Flamboro meant we could help support their Late Model car count that was getting very low....we found out Saturday during the Food Bank drive the races at Kawartha were cancelled due to the threat of rain, and the weather man was calling for rain all day. We could have went to Sauble after all, but I had told a few friends we would be at Flamboro, but I warned them we would be way off the mark in terms of competition. Our car was too under powered, too heavy, too high, not enough left side %, wore out tires and a smaller carb, so as tough as it was to race like that, it was kind of better than Sunset racing because up there we are almost struggle to keep up being so low HP wise. Anyway it was a good night, we finished 8th and did not get lapped and how we didn't I don't know. Our best lap time was a 15:8 and the leaders were 15:3. I have turned that track in 15:1's but not with this set up. We accomplished what we wanted and many people thanked us for coming. We may return for the final Grisdale race, but with the same set up because it would cost us too much at this point to get the car competitive with the current Late Model field.........my awesome crew for the night were Jim, Marty, Jason and Paul.....next race is this Friday at Full Throttle in the Modified, then Saturday at Sunset in the Late Model.


 

Schedule Change

2014 Schedule
2014 Schedule
GEM Racing Flamboro Speedway On Saturday
    When I put this schedule together, it was my goal to make every race possible in 2014. Our average for the past 45 seasons has been just over 25 nights per year. This year I kind of went nuts and our schedule is 37 to 38 races, maybe more. My streak could not be intact if I missed this Saturday's race at Sunset, but I was planning on going as shown here on our 2014 schedule. The problem hit me last week when I happened to ask Sunset promoters for some things to give away at a show we were going to be doing on Saturday in Vaughan from 9 until 1. I explained that I was supporting the Vaughan Food Bank and would be heading to Sunset Speedway once we were done. Well guess what, this weekend is the Home and Home with Sauble and there are no Late Models at Sunset on Saturday. Going to Sauble from the show in Vaughan was not a big deal, we would be there by 5 no problem maybe 4:30. But, I was planning on heading to Kawartha Speedway for the Mod show after the races Saturday night................The dilemma enters the picture with the long drive home from Sauble, we wouldn't be home until 3 in the morning, and would have to unload the LM and load the Modified, then leave immediately, or grab 3 hours sleep and leave at 6 in the morning to get to Kawartha by 8:30 when the gates open, no way to that. So after some consideration the following plan came up. We are not 100% at Sunset this year because we are following the OSCAAR Modified schedule as our series to run 100%. We have already missed 2 regular nights at Sunset Speedway, June 14th and July 5th, so to keep our streak going it was decided to run Flamboro Saturday night, and be only 15 minutes from home. Head back by 10:30 or so, unload the LM, load the Mod and get on the road before midnight and stay over in Peterborough....so that is our schedule change for this weekend. No less race nights, just a change......hope to see some of our fans at Flamboro Speedway.

Our First Time To Capital City Speedway....This Was Our 38th Different Race Track In 46 Seasons
    Bob, Matt, Marty and I headed to Capital City Speedway on Friday. It was a great trip, lots of fun for my team and I. We ran decent, picking up a 4th overall. The full story is on Diary Of A Season 2014 on our Message Board. Congrats to the winners of the events. Dustin Jackson was fastest qualifier in time trials. Gary McLean and Max Beyore won the 2 features, we finished 3rd and 6th. We headed home right after the race, making it to Waterdown just after midnight.......our next race is this Saturday at Flamboro Speedway and then off to Kawartha Speedway in the Modified for the 7th of the 12 race mini series on Sunday July 13th.
