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.

Racing Hard With Brent McLean...Check Out The Tires
    Brent McLean would go on to win the last OSCAAR Modified race of 2014, his only win of the year and a big one for sure. Our car was pushing, and I could not hold him back. We would end up finishing 5th, still a strong run and take 3rd overall in the points standing, our best point finish since 1999....I will be posting more pictures of our AC race, just getting caught up on some things and not a lot of time on the computer...this awesome shot was taken by Ontario Oval's ace photographer Eric Uprichard. he has supplied many good shots for me over the years.....I am currently working on sponsors for 2015, trying to get some back. We have lost a few, but the majority are back with us. I will know soon about Quaker State, hopefully by the end of the month and will post it on here......just a note...not sure how he did this, but there appears to be no window net on the drivers side....but there definitely was, cool shot though.


 

Youth For Christ.....Open House

No Rain At The Waterdown YFC Grand Opening
    We were invited a few months ago to come to the open house of the brand new Youth For Christ facility in Waterdown. That event was today. We thought at first we would only be there until 11am because this was the weekend for Octoberfest at Flamboro Speedway, and we were to race both our Modified and Late Model. However, by early Saturday morning the races were cancelled for the entire weekend and we were able to stay until 2:30 before heading back home, which was only a quarter mile away. We had one small bit of rain but it soon cleared up with no more rain all day.......the ceremony was awesome with some politicians, many of the donators, and YFC head office staff on hand to welcome those who came to see this amazing facility. Local teens can drop in for fun and games and to inquire about church, Jesus, the Bible, and what it says about them, our lives and our future. Marcel Knot is the manager of this location and would gladly accept new members who would like to make any size monthly commitment to help cover the costs to run this good thing in the center of Waterdown........our next race event is in Peterborough for the Autumn Colors Classic a 3 day deal. This will be our 10th year in a row to support this giant race extravaganza.

Schedule For Octoberfest Altered to Saturday and Sunday
    The Octoberfest Classic weekend is upon us and like too many times in the past, weather is the main story for this hard luck promoter. Friday's show has been cancelled and will run on Saturday, with Saturday's show moved to Sunday......I will be driving our OSCAAR Modified with Rick Warnes OMRS Modifieds both days. They have 2 full shows scheduled for the weekend.......Trevor Monaghan will drive our Quaker State Late Model on Sunday for the final APC 100 lap feature.....hope to see all our friends and fans at Flamboro Speedway this weekend.

OSCAAR Modified Making My Year......We Reach 6th Win Of 2014...Most Since 2007
    Well 2014 has been our best year in a while. The Modified has been a true blessing to me and my team and all of us are having a blast racing with OSCAAR. We ran the Velocity 250 this weekend and had an awesome showing finishing 3rd and 1st in our heat races and 2nd in the feature. Max Beyore, who is 2nd in points got into a weird wreck on Saturday night and it took him out of the feature on Sunday. He still made 20 show up points but we gained a total of 42 points on the Rookie. Max and I will be 11 points a part for Autumn Colors, but I think he is fairly safe, as long as he doesn't run into any more bad luck. We have a fairly safe cushion of 24 points over 4th, Davey Terry, but just like Max, I can't afford to have any trouble for the weekend.....Our team was awesome again and we got some good help from Scott Wylie, who helped us with our Late Model at Barrie last weekend. I will be writing more about this weekend on Diary of a Season 2014, located in our Message Board under General Chat......special thanks to my dedicated hard working crew for getting us the 3 podiums this weekend......Next weekend we race both cars at Flamboro Speedway, in the final Late Model APC race and the Modified with OMRS on both Friday and Saturday. Looking forward to it.
