Awesome Video: The History of Super Modifieds Is Incredible And Flat Out Awesome

We love Super Modifieds around here and we have posted saying that for years. You can catch them racing on the regular in the Northeastern quadrant of the country during normal racing years and they are the most brutal circle track racing creations in history. But where did they come from? How did they evolve? Was it over time or did people immediately start hanging big blocks off the side of custom chassis? Truthfully, until we watched this video we had no idea of the origins and proper history of Super Modified racing…now we do.

Told through great research and vintage photos, you are going to get a great history of a class that did not start as a series at all but rather simply started as an interesting and no-holds-barred category of racing at a New York racing facility. Oswego Speedway literally created Super Modified racing and the racers took it from there. We didn’t know that these things evolved form dirt modifieds. We didn’t know that along the years guys would buy old Indy roadsters and race them with roll cages or even wilder, buy old rear engine Indy cars to compete with!

The reason the engines all hang off the sides is the creation of one guy as well and you’ll get his story in here, too.

If you love the wildest cars in circle track racing or even have a passing interest in racing history, this video will make your day!
