Leaving the line at Chicago...

Doing a burnout at Maple Grove...

Jason Oldfield - 2nd Generation drag racer out of Rochester, NY. Drive an original 1963 Chevy Corvette that my dad (John Oldfield) purchased in 1964. The car simply started as a hot rod, then, in 1971 with the help of my uncle, Dick Oldfield (the original driver of the famed Motown Missile Pro Stocker), was converted to a full-time race car in 1971. The car was raced in Modified Eliminator at the time in C/G, D/G, and E/G, and competed primarily at Lancaster Dragway outside of Buffalo, NY. However, Cayuga Dragway (now Toronto Motorsports Park), Empire Dragway (now New York International Raceway Park), and Niagara Dragway (defunct) were other frequented locations.

I now race the car primarily in NHRA Super Street and IHRA Hot Rod, but also run occasionally in Super Gas and Super Rod. I would consider my home track NYIRP, but travel all over the Northeast to race in NHRA & IHRA sanctioned division and national events.  Currently looking for sponsors for 2012 and beyond on both the local and Northeast regional level.

Jason Oldfield races a very successful 1963 Spilt Window Corvette Coupe in Super Street. What is unusual about this Vette is that Jason’s dad; John, bought this Corvette new in 1964 with intentions of racing it. They still have all the original equipment and have not cut up the car so it can easily be restored to street trim.

Jason grew up with racing but took a few years off to earn a BSME Engineering degree from Rochester Institute of Technology in New York. Jason currently is a Sales Engineer at Teknic, Inc-Motion Control Products Division.

2004 was a big year for Jason. He started the year with a Super Street win at Maple Grove at the N.H.R.A. P.C. Richard Open and on July 27th this thirty four year old racer-engineered announced the birth of his third child, John Adam Oldfield.

As a side note those of you history guys will remember the original driver of the famed "Motown Missle" was Dick Oldfield, uncle of Jason.

For 2005 Jason has freshened the 63 Vette and will be back on the N.H.R.A. Super Street Circuit.
