Written by Bob Mays. When I was a kid growing up in Lincoln, Nebraska, my family's regular Sunday night ritual was going to the stock car races at Capitol Beach Speedway. My earliest memories in life were of the old coupes and coaches flying around that little bull ring in West Lincoln.
Standing in the ticket lane that night was the first time I'd ever heard the word "supermodified." It came over the the public address system loud and clear: "...THE SUPERMODIFIEDS ARE GETTING READY TO ROLL ONTO THE TRACK!" the announcer blared.
That night's events would be the only time supermodifieds ever ran at the Beach. After that I quit calling the competition at Capitol Beach "stock cars." From then on, they were "modifieds." It wasn't too long before the modifieds grew wings and fire breathing OHV motors. The seeds were sown for supermodifieds at the Beach.
Within the pages of this book, you will find jalopies of the 1950's and sprint cars of the 1980's. Somewhere in-between are supermodifieds. Ask 10 people supers and you'll get, if you're lucky, only nine different answers. Because there was no sanctioning body for supers, with the exception of the National Championship Racing Association, rules have been whatever the local track or regional club made up. Therefore, supers are different things to different people.
But for now, let's go back to 1958, or 1961, or 1967, or whenever supermodifieds first came through the pit gate at your favorite track, and let's get ready to see some of the wildest short track cars to ever cut mud...
AND NOW, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE SUPERMODIFIEDS ARE GETTING READY TO ROLL ONTO THE TRACK!
