We are saddened to say goodbye to a fellow racer, Steve Tedder, who finished in the 18th position for the 2020 season. He was an amazing man and competitor that raced for the love of it. He always had a smile and a laugh on and off the track. Go Rest High, my friend. You will be greatly missed by your fellow racers. (1.5.2021)
Classic Gear Jammer History
A special thank you to George Houston for producing this video. Take a few minutes to hear from some of our very own racers about how this group got started and why this is the best racing association around.
2020 Points Champion
Barczy is your 2020 Classic Gear Jammers Champion. People always ask what it takes to win races and a championship. The answer is a good driver and a good car. The Barczy/Flynt team has both of them covered. Josh grew up kart racing, then jr. dragsters, and now into a stick door car. Jimmy Flynt, the car owner and his grandfather, has raced forever and there's no one that does more preventative maintenance and checking over things than him. Their maintenance program is second to none. Fun story, when the Flynt girls were small in the 70's and their dad was racing, they called 62-67 Nova's skinny Nova, and 68-72 cars fat Nova. Their ride is an iconic 1966 Chevy II (skinny Nova). The car has been in the family since the 80's and has competed ever since. It runs a Fulton Competition Race Engines SBC with Liberty's Gears 5 speed, RAM Clutches, running 5.90's at 115 mph.
This makes Josh's 3rd CGJ Championship (2014, 2017 and 2020). In the CGJ 30 years of racing, only a hand full of drivers can make that claim. It has always been family, fun and racing together for the Barczy/Flynt camp. Great Job!
Congratulations to our top 20 in the points standings for 2020!
