The 2010 Wissota Modified – J-Car

Here’s pictures of the hot rod Wissota Modified Scott will be running a little bit during the 2010 Season.  It’s a 2009 J-Car chassis built by Specialty Fabricating out of Fargo.  This RealTruck sponsored ride is powered by Dakota Engine Builders.  It was Mitch Johnson test car for the 2009 racing season.  This will be Scott rookie year for the Wissota “A” mod class.  The race car is about 98% done.  Just a few tweeks, some decals and a dirt track to race on.  More race car pictures.

Racing Results for 9-5-09 at the Jamestown Speedway

2009 Scott Bintz Racing Midwest Modified Summary
Heat Wins: 15 | Feature Wins: 4 | Top 5’s: 25 | Top 10’s: 10

Over 40 Wissota Midwest Modified race cars showed up for the first night of the Jamestown Speedways Double Header Labor Day Weekend Races.  Thanks for some major fixes by Mitch and the crew at Specialty Fabricating J-Car and final touches by Spencer Johnson and the head grinder Shawn Herrick, we were ready to race.  I drew 12 and was on pole of the 6th heat.  The track was dry with some tack in it.  On the start, I got the lead and we had 2 cautions in before we finally made a lap.  On the last re-start, I took the lead and kept it with Ryan Mikkelson hot on my tail.  I was super happy for the heat win at such a big show.  Hard to believe its the 15th heat win this year.

For the feature, I drew 4.  This put me in row two on the outside.  Next to Dustin Strand of course.  We were the last feature of the night so the track was super dry with not to much of a cushion on the top.  We got going and I was able to move into 3rd and then after a re-start into 2nd.  Strand had the lead.  Seemed like i was gaining on him in corner 1 and 2 and loosing him in corner 3 and 4.  I had been running low most of the race.  After another caution, I picked low and Flyin Ryan Mikkelson was high beside me.  Strand got a good start and Mikkelson and I were battling pretty hard for 2nd.  We had one last caution.  Continue reading Racing Results for 9-5-09 at the Jamestown Speedway

2009 Scott Bintz Racing Midwest Modified Summary
Heat Wins: 14 | Feature Wins: 4 | Top 5’s: 24 | Top 10’s: 10

Wrecked in Lisbon: On Tuesday,  September 1st, we headed down to the Sheyenne River Speedway in Lisbon, ND for championship night.  Started in the 3rd position of the heat and  moved into 2nd pretty quick.  Tried chasing down the leader but wasn’t able to make a pass.  For the feature, started in the same position as it was a straight up race. Moved into 2nd and was running down the leader.  There was a few cautions in the first few laps.  On the restart, I picked low and was on the inside lane side by side the leader coming out of turn 2.    The leader pulled away a bit and coming out of corner four, I was hit pretty hard in the rear and pushed into the wall. I think I was on 2 wheels from the flag stand to the end of the wall.  Another driver was called for the caution.  After the a stop in the pits and a tire change, got back out on the track.  The car was in pretty rough shape but made it back to 7th or 8th.  (Not sure of official results yet).   After we got the car home we realized the entire rear section of the car and fuel cell was destroyed.   The rear clip was barely hanging on to the chassis.  On a positive note, Ryan Mikkelson, who is also sponsored by RealTruck.Com, came from tail end in the feature and won the race along with the track championship.

THANK YOU Mitch & the Specialty Fabricating J-Car Crew
