CORONA, California (July 2, 2013) – They’ve turned into coneheads!
It happened so suddenly there was no chance to prevent it. One moment on a pleasant Saturday night in mid June the amazingly talented drivers in the Lucas Oil Modified Series presented by LoanMart were going about their business as usual. Then a track official plopped an orange cone down in the middle of Turn 4 at Rocky Mountain Raceways and everything changed.
There’ll be no going back, either, because series co-founder and competition director Bill Rozhon said turning everyone into coneheads is “probably the best thing we’ve done with the series” that returns to action July 20 at Madera Speedway in central California.
It probably should be mentioned here that the Modified coneheads have nothing in common with the alien family from Saturday Night Live except the borrowed name. Continue reading

Tampa, FL – CIRCLE TRACK magazine, the #1 Source for Advanced Racing Technology, today announced the schedule for year four of the AMSOIL Great American CIRCLE TRACK Tour. The most popular and comprehensive technical magazine dedicated to Oval Track racers in the world is embarking on a four year adventure that will criss-cross the greatest racing regions of our country. We will travel to both local race tracks and a selection of the most prestigious special events in the country. Our goal is to interact with racing teams, drivers and fans to promote grass roots racing, discuss current trends in racing technology and build sponsor awareness among the hard-core racing community.
The fourth year of the AMSOIL Great American CIRCLE TRACK Tour will take Senior Tech Editor, Bob Bolles, to 25 race tracks throughout the Western United States during a four month period. While at the track, Bob will meet with the racers to talk shop and discuss issues important to their racing and also to distribute sponsor information, literature & promo items. He will talk one on one with the top teams in all divisions racing at each track in a unique exchange that will be shared with our larger online audience through blogs and web exclusive articles at www.circletrack.com.
This interaction with the racers will be reported in more detail through a series of articles published in the pages of CIRCLE TRACK Magazine on a monthly basis. Feature stories will review the trip and discuss the technology of racing and how it varies throughout the regions we visit. During the entire Tour, Bob will share his experiences online with daily entries into a special trip blog where our friends can keep track of our progress. The tour promises to be the most innovative program in the history of short track racing.
Bob had the idea for a tour like this more than five years ago, but circumstances at the time prevented it from coming to fruition. When current Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Editor Rob Fisher heard about the idea he liked it and the pair worked to refine the concept for launch in 2010. When synthetic lubricant manufacturer AMSOIL joined the tour as title sponsor, it was off to the races…literally. The first year of the tour was a huge success and 2013 will be even bigger and better. Please join us as we venture where no magazine has ever ventured before, into the inner circle of oval track racing.
