January 31, 2013
Delmar, DE….Happy New Year Race Fans! Is everyone getting ready for the 2013 racing season? It will be here very soon. Some of you might be hitting the Winternationals in Florida coming up this February. Plus NASCAR starts next month at Daytona. Be sure to keep us updated on redbud69rcing.com message board with all that travel south.
January 19, 2013 the Little Lincoln Vintage Stock Car Club celebrated the 2012 Championship at the Viola Ruritan Building, Viola, DE, where Jamie Wagner of Gumboro, DE took home his first Championship in the club. Wagner took home 2 wins this racing season with a lot of second & third place finishes. Wagner drives the number # 3, 1957 Chevy and always looks to be one of the front runners in every event. Or if he was out front and a tire goes down, and he has to pit, look for him to climb right through and back up front within those 12 laps in the features.
The remaining drivers were second to John Stevenson 14A, Bill Brittingham 4, Dylan Betts 65, Steven Baker 79, Mel Joseph, Jr. 49, Virgil Bradford 55, Brian Nailor 11, Kirk Lawson 1, David Archer 7, Mark Cashdan 8, Donald Robinson, Jr. 64, Will Hynson 13, Tyler White 12, Mike Warshaure 77, Ryan Walsen 9, George Banks 21, Emory West 60 and Tim Archer 64T.
Wagner got started racing in the Little Lincoln Vintage Stock Car Club in 2005. It was the first of any type of racing for Wagner. Wagner claimed the 2005 Rookie of the Year that first year and finished 6th in points. That would be his worst finish ever in the club points. Wagner would go on to claim 4th or better in place in the final points until this 2012 season.
In 2007, Wagner was a second place finish in points and Wagner made a note to say, “Last year we were third in points, this year second, and next year I want the championship.” Wagner vowed to take home the championship title in 2008.
Well, it wasn’t that year or the next year, but he did nail it this year. It was a little later than he thought it would take, but those guys put on a hell of a show each time where anyone could win in the features.
Wagner started racing around 23 years old which is not the earliest of age as many drivers getting their start in racing. But at 30, the championship win is just as sweet to being any age he remarked.

Wagner, does comes from a racing family that many people do know of. His late father Roy “Shaky” Davis ran in the Street Stock in # 13 class a couple years. After loosing his Father, his Uncle Virgil F. Davis III promised Shaky he would take care of Wagner and adopted him. Wagner has called it home every since.
Virgil is related to the Ray Davis (# 84 & 92 late model) and Bryan Tracy (#37J crate mod) racing crew. Virgil had a Little Lincoln car back then that Virgil, Jr. “Chop” drove a couple years. Then Joe Tracy drove the car a year or so before switching into the AC Delco Modified class. That left room for Jamie to step up to drive in the vintage division. Wagner took the car to victory lane that season, and for the first time of anyone driving it to a win.

Wagner thanked all the drivers for racing with him so competitive. Nonetheless the front runners of Bill Brittingham, John Stevenson, Mel Joseph, Jr., Donald Robinson “Duck”, and a special thank you for always racing us all clean. Every year it can be any of us drivers to take the championship or wins.
Wagner would like to thank his sponsors of KPR (Kenny Pettyjohn Racing), Alan Whitney for motor, K-Fab, Carey’s Inc., Virgil F. Davis III Trucking, Johnny Penual and Pro Finishes for a fabulous year. Wagner thanks all his family, fans, & crew and is looking forward to the new 2013 season. Without all the help from everyone, it takes and makes it all possible to run I couldn’t do it. It’s a lot of work, but fun and well worth it. So look for Wagner to run in the first race the Little Lincoln club runs at a Delaware track.
