The Jeffer is now one of only 3 drivers at the historic Orange County Fair Speedway to notch 50 career big block modified wins! The Jeffer took advantage of a late race restart to power to the lead and then cruised on for his 50th modified and 71st total victory at “The Hard Clay!” Thank you to everyone who made this win possible and especially to our car owner Ronnie Roberts!

A scoring blunder recorded The Jeffer as 2 laps down, however, the team is challenging… Read More

Jeff Heotzler at the Volusia Speedway during the 2015 DIRTCar Nationals in Florida.

From blown trailer tires to a blown engine, just nothing seemed to go our way from day 1 during our Florida trip. It took a total team effort just to get the 14H back on the track (after blowing the engine in time trials on Wednesday) for the final 2 nights of the DIRTCar Nationals at Volusia, including a 15 hour, 1100 mile round trip to pickup a spare engine. We gave… Read More

With the postponement of Accord Speedway’s “Gobbler” until April 2015, the 2014 racing season has officially come to a close. 2014 was an exciting year with a lot of memories and fun times for the 2a and 14H racing teams. We are very thankful to have the opportunity to drive fast race cars for such great people. Racing truly has no off-season and we are already hard at work to make 2015 the most… Read More

There aren’t many drivers in dirt racing that are as smooth and patient as Jeff Heotzler. Those traits were once again on display during the 53rd running of the Eastern States Weekend at the historic Orange County Fair Speedway over the weekend. On Saturday night, The Jeffer carefully navigated his way though the field from his 26th starting position en route… Read More
