  • The Supermodifieds post a very fast speed in Qualifications and these Race cars and teams work hard on the set up to provide Fans watching the Fastest short track time and speed. The Central Valley California is Home of many great Drivers and the Quickest Supermodifieds. The Economy is keeping the car counts low but the speeds the times show the Racers and crew know how to set up and provide the Fastest open wheeled cars on the short tracks!!






    The Supermodifieds were known before "AS THE ROAD TO INDY". Many Super teams work hard in car preperation and finding ways to get maximum handling and horspower making the Supers the fastest at our LOCAL TRACKS!.

    Many great talent started in Supers.

  • Billy Vukovich, III
  • Paul Durant
  • Tony Stewart
  • Davey Hamilton,

    to name a few Supermodified Drivers that ran INDY.

    I really feel EAST and WEST COAST need to work together and make Supers into combined all out * run what you brung *

    and to spark new ideas and sponsers.











  • Get Well Jim.

    New Winners and Veterans Reap Gold at Madera Harvest Classic

    by Gerald Laurie

    Madera Speedway held their 43rd Annual Harvest Classic on September 12 and 13, 2014. The open wheel divisions were featured Saturday and those are covered here. We had popular veterans winning in two divisions and newcomers to victory lane in the other two. There were some dominating runs and some come from behind excitement. There was also 102 degree heat in the late afternoon and early evening making for interesting tire situations in at least one division.

    MADERA Speedways Winged World Series featuring Winged Sprint Cars and Supermodifieds were the last swipe to transponders across the starting line. Tim Skoglund(60) was fastest at 12.756 seconds followed by Kyle Vanderpool(3) at 12.800, and Davey Hamilton, Jr.(98) at 12.931.

    The winged cars also ran two heats. The fast four were in the first with a straight up line-up. Tim Skoglund paced the field pursued by Kyle Vanderpool, Davey Hamilton, Jr. and Eric Humphries. Vanderpool grabbed the advantage from the outside with Skoglund, Humphries and Hamilton pulling in behind. And no one was able to move up, so that is how they finnished.

    The remaining cars were also lined up in qualifying order with Cody Gerhardt leading Donnie Large, Alan Beck, and Marvin Mitchell. Large also took advantage of the high line to lead over Gerhardt and Beck as Mitchell headed for the pits on lap two. Again, there was no passing after the first turn of lap one.

    Davey Hamilton has put together a six race Winged Sprint Car Series that had three races earlier this year in the MidWest and finishes up in California in November. Both Ken Hamilton (Daveys Father) and Jo Jo Helberg (winner of two of the first three races) have run at Madera this year with the Winged World Series to get some test info for the King of Wings Series. Davey brought his son Davey, Jr. to run in Ken Hamiltons car for another tune-up for the coming shows. Boy, did they get some information.

    The winged cars were set to run fifty laps. The invert was four cars. Eric Humphries was on the pole followed by Davey Hamilton, Jr., Kyle Vanderpool, and Tim Skoglund. Behind the inverted cars were Cody Gerhardt, Donnie Large, Alan Beck, and Marvin Mitchell. The outside was the place to be and Hamilton and Skoglund both pulled out ahead of Humphries, Vanderpool and Large. Vanderpool moved to third on lap three while Gerhardt displaced Large for fifth. Meanwhile Hamilton was increasing his lead while Vanderpool was all over Skoglund until he got past on lap nine. After ten laps, the order was Hamilton, Vanderpool, Skoglund, Humphries and Gerhardt. Vanderpool was chasing Hamilton and the distance would expand and compress, but never by much. Hamilton was very smooth out front.

    On lap sixteen, Davey dove deep into three to overtake a lapped car with a move remeniscent of some of the battles beteen his father and the late Billy Vukovich III. No one thought the car would stick and yet there was nary a bobble. The youngster just kept on truckin! Humphries headed for the infield on lap seventeen with a deflating right rear tire. Order after twenty laps was Hamilton, Vanderpool, Skoglund, Gerhardt, and Large. The middle of the race saw Hamilton maintain and extend his lead a bit. Skoglund was evidently having some tire issues as he lost touch with Vanderpool and fell back into the clutches of Gerhardt who passed him on lap twenty-nine. Lap thirty order was Hamilton, Vanderpool, Gerhardt, Skoglund, and Large.

    We then noticed that Vanderpool also began to exhibit some tire wear symptoms and seemed be loose off turn four several times. Everyone was wondering when Davey would outrun his tires at the pace he was setting. It didnt happen. Lap forty reflected lap thirty. It was apparent that everyone was just hanging on for the last ten laps as even Hamilton slowed his pace a bit, but maintined a very comfortable lead. With no yellows to cool the tires, young Mr. Hamilton went green to checkers with a full straightaway lead for the entire distance. This is his second year of running winged Sprint Cars and although he has many victories in his career in karts and other venues, this was his first Sprint Car win and it was well deserved. Whatever Davey Sr. and Larry Triguerio did to the 98 car between the heat and the feature, it worked. Daveys was the only car I saw in the pits without a blistered right rear tire. The amount of blistering differed, but Daveys was the only one with no blistering. It was great race with a deserved first victory for the third generation Driver.
