IMPORTANT SMC UPDATE!!!
I just wanted to mention a few things to make sure everyone knows what to do and
just how easy and fun it is to enter the SMC!!
-SMC entry fee = $0
-Mission Raceway Park Street Legal Drag Racing entry fee = $35
So what does that mean and what should you do...?
-1- Show up at Mission Raceway at 4pm on Friday August 26th, gates open at 430pm, tell them you'll
be racing in the Sport Compact Class for the Street Legals and pay your $35 entry fee.
-2- Prepare your car for tech, go to and pass tech, and return to the pit area.
-3- Find the SMC/Zündfolge Car Club pit area. There will be a large, grey enclosed car trailer with a green
& gold Suburban parked in front of it, and a big blue event tent beside the trailer with a Zündfolge
Car Club banner hanging on the side of it. This is where you register for the SMC. Find me (Silas = tall,
skinny, white dude...ask around...i wont be hard to find) and sign up!!!
-4- Racing starts around 530pm and goes until 11pm-ish. Make as many runs down the 1/4 as you like, keep
your time slips and show them to me after each run or at the end of the night.
-5- Have fun!!! It's always a great night with good friends and nice cars!! Come on out and be a part of it!!!

Coverage of the 2010 Stock Motor Challenge from the Feb 2011 UltraVW...!!!
We were lucky enough to receive some great press in the February 2011 edition of UltraVW magazine as part of their feature on The 2010 Great Canadian VW Show!
And stay tuned for the 2011 Stock Motor Challenge!!!
^^^ posted on may 9 2011
The 2010 Stock Motor Challenge is in the books!!!
We had our best turnout to date with 7 cars and 8 drivers and everyone got a chance to make multiple passes on what turned out to be a great evening at the track.
Some highlights from the 2010 season include the "Frose brothers grudge match" with Rob & Lorne taking turns piloting their 67 down the track to see who could log the best times & KMH...Carlos participating in an unprecidented 5th straight SMC (that's every year since it's inception)...Shawns front suspension bouncing down the track...Lucas logging time on the track as the SMC's youngest driver ever (he's still got his N)...Blair driving his super clean Type III Fastback for the second year in a row...and Bruce setting new SMC records for lowest ET and highest KMH!!!
For the first time ever we had the "Spirit of the Stock Motor Challenge" award. This year the award was a Gift Certificate for 2 for an incredible outdoor mountain adventure from TAG Whistler.
This year the "Spirit of the Stock Motor Challenge" award was presented to Dave for racing his 1969 bus. And although this might not seem like a big deal...I'll explain why we chose Dave as the winner. Dave had just purchased his bus less than 2 weeks prior to the 2010 SMC and had barely enough time to get the drivers seat warm (let alone assess the reliability of the motor). Dave also spent quite a bit of time in the Tech Inspection. The first issue was that he only had an International Drivers License...which shouldn’t be a problem...except for the fact that he had forgotten it back in the pits...and after a little running around it was retrieved and submitted to the Tech Inspector (who was still a little perplexed to see an International DL). The second issue was that Dave was wearing shorts and the Mission Raceway rulebook clearly states that all drivers/racers must wear pants. So after a quick discussion and a little searching Dave found a pair of pants to borrow...his wife's (although she looks a lot better in them than you do buddy
So after all of that Dave finally got a chance to race his bus down the 1/4 mile!!! And even though his ET and KMH are average for a bus running in the SMC...it was Dave’s determination, perseverance and great attitude that made the SMC judges choose him as the recipient of the 2010 "Spirit of the Stock Motor Challenge" award.
I would like to personally thank ALL of the participants for their dedication and enthusiasm!! You are what the SMC is all about and it was so great to have such an amazing crew of people out on the track with their stockers.
Also...a heartfelt thank-you to our sponsors...
AVR Import Specialties...http://www.avrparts.com/
The Zündfolge Car Club
Also...thank you very much to everyone that continues to support the SMC and offer encouragement and come out to the track and watch us race! We really appreciate all your kind words and moral support!!
Final results are posted on the SMC 2010 Results page and pictures from the 2010 season (including pics from the pit area at the track, the racing and the awards presentation) are posted on the Pictures page.
So until the Stock Motor Challenge 2011...keep those stockers tuned & ready to roll!!!

TROPHIES FOR THE STOCK MOTOR CHALLENGE 2010...
^^^posted on august 4 2010
THIS JUST IN!!!!
The Adventure Group Whistler has just sweetened the prize pot by donating a gift certificate for 2 for any one of their adventures!!
The Adventure Group is a new adventure company that represents Outdoor Adventures, Wedge Rafting and Wildplay Element Parks in Whistler...so there are lots of choices for the winner (see the link above)! it looks like alot of fun!!
we have decided that this will be awarded as the "Spirit of the Stock Motor Challenge" prize. that means that it might not neccesarily go to the 1st, 2nd or 3rd place participant but could be awarded to any one of the participants. it may be the person with the oldest car or the newest car...the best reaction time or the worst reaction time...the person who lives farthest away or the person who lives next door to the track...maybe the person with the most consistent et's after 3 runs...or maybe it'll go to the person who looks like they're having the most fun...
the winner will be decided by a small and unbiased panel of judges.
so any one that enters the SMC 2010 will be eligible to win this prize!!
so come on out an give'er a go!!
and a big hearty thank you to The Adventure Group Whistler for coming on board!!
we are again very lucky to have support and sponsorship from...
