    The ISMA Supermodified tour will be at Stafford Motor Speedway tonight. These things are flat out incredible racing machines, running on alcohol. With a compression ratio of 17:1, a Supermodified engine will easily make over 800 hp. All of those ponies bolted onto a 1,850-pound race car add up to an insane power-to-weight ratio.

    Going to be one hot night.

    My two favorite types of racecars are sprints and super mods. Went to the "Fastest short track show in the world" at Toledo speedway a couple weeks ago. Always a great time. Just wish the supers were faster than the sprints. How was the show at Stafford?

    You can call it supermodel racing- I call it chasing.

    Cwill, it was a pretty good show, not great. Only 22 cars for the Supers. But, Damn!!!! Are they impressive! They don't come around southern NE to often. I mean yes Waterford, use to be Seekonk, but to enjoy them I think you need at least a half mile track. Just my two cents.
