We just got new "used" mod into the shop today and started updating. The car was built by Premier Fabrication out of East Troy Wisconsin. It's a roller,but as always,a seasons worth of racing on the car means repairs and a new body are needed.

We could do our own body,but maybe we may look a complete body kit,from the hood and roof,to all the body panels. Any suggestions on bodies that are out there by builders?

Lee has repaired many of our race cars in the past at Premier,and the quality of his work is outstanding. We will be in touch with Lee this week to talk about this car and what updates should be done to the car.

The axle housing is bent about 3/16 out on the rear,as the right axle needed a bit of arm strength to remove,so we will see if Lee can help us there also.

This is our first mod,from a dirt sportsman and the beginning was a heavy street stock. There will be many learning curves,and we are just checking out what racers like and dislike about different vendors of race parts.

I will be running a sreet stock at Beaver Dam,and a fellow racer who I have helped for a number of years(I sold him his first race car)owns this mod,which was orange,number 21,and the old owners liked loud music and have a disco ball in their enclosed trailer.Nothing wrong with that. It is a long story on how we got the car,but we have wanted to race a mod for a long time,and now we have our chance.

We raced our Hales Whales at Beaver Dam back in 99 when their car count was down because of a battle with the fairgrounds. We love the track at Power Com and can not wait.

I was involved in the Whaler Class at Hales for many years as a driver and car owner. The kid who drove my 131 car,Mike Knurr,went on to become track champion at Hales in the mod class. In all my years of racing,my biggest pay day was $35.00 at Power Com. I have a boat load of trophys from Hales........but we do it for the fun...right? Not the money.......right?

We will not be running a full season with both cars because of other matters outside of racing. We also help crew for another racer who races a Wissota Super Stocker up around La Crosse on Friday nites.

The LeMays do alot of work for my friend with his Wissota Super Stocker. We may have them do some panels,but we are unsure yet what we will do. Racing this season with in a tight budget,we may do alot of things ourselves.
