Stratford first began running the big V8 engined class in 1981-1982 season. Over time this class has proved to be one of the most popular of all.

With a power to weight ratio slightly less than the Sprintcar class, Modifieds can be extremely difficult to tame, but when in full flight present a thrilling show for the fans. Laptimes on the Stratford oval have been recorded in the high 13 second bracket with speeds estimated to be reaching close to 150kmph.

The modified class has traditionally been one that Stratford driver's have done well in on a national scene with 11 NZ titles won by Stratford drivers.
