SPOTLIGHT ON SPEED: JAY BAILEY

POSTED ON July 9th  - POSTED IN Dirt Track, News

Doing double duty in Heartland Park Topeka’s Saturday Showdown dirt track series is a challenge for Jay Bailey, but visiting victory lane last Saturday night made his hectic race-night schedule a little easier.

Bailey is a regular in HPT’s Modified class, sitting third in points, but he has also been running in the B Mod division recently since picking up a new B Mod.

It was in the new car that the Lyndon racer picked up Saturday’s win in just his fourth start in the car.

“My kids are getting close to being old enough to drive and I figured if I found something that was worthwhile I’d buy it,” Bailey said. “A guy up in Kansas City had that car for sale turn-key so I went up and bought it and came back and played with it.

“I’ve had it for probably three months and messed with it for a couple of months and got it all set up to where I thought it ought to be and then we took it out and raced it.”

Last week’s B Mod win was his first in his new acquisition, but Bailey has been a contender in the No. 333 since the first night he took it out.

“We finished second the first night and then fifth,” Bailey said. “We had a water pump hose come off (the third race) and then we won the other night.”

Eventually Bailey wants to turn over the racing reins to his sons.

“I have two other B Mods sitting in my garage at home,” Bailey said. “I have three boys and in about two years the first one will be able to drive and then the next one a year after that and the third one a year after that. All three of them will be driving in the next four years and then I’ll retire from driving.”

Racing in both the Modified and B Mod divisions isn’t easy, but Bailey has been able to make it work.

“The biggest thing is getting them ready during the week,” Bailey said. “The A Mod takes about 20 hours a week to get it ready and then you add probably five to 10 hours a week for the B Mod, so it pretty much makes it a full week.”

But last week’s win made the time spent worthwhile.

“Any time you get a win it makes it a whole lot easier,” Bailey said.
