These six letters mean North East Stock Car Old Timers.
The club was started in 1985 when the late great Doug Garrison took ill and his friends and competitors had a party and took donations to help with his medical bills.
When offered the money, Doug said to keep it and start a club for old-time race car drivers.
Doug had good insurance so he didn't need financial help. ... He also had a couple of ideas for the club.
First ... every driver is equal - Modified, Sportsman, Pro Stock, Street Stock. or 4 Cylinder.
Second ... no Hall of Fame.
32 years later, we still have those beliefs. One novel idea was Doug's competition could use their car number as their club number.
Even though there is no Hall of Fame, we do have the Superior Achievement In Motorsports Award for those who do something good in racing. Many racers have received this prestigious award.
Well known race car driver's have been President of NESCOT over the years such as Jerry Townley, Ernie Martin, Rod Kryskowski and Bill Gonyea. The current President is Al McCoy, a modified driver from Hannacroix, New York.
NESCOT has an annual Steak and Chicken Bake, and yearly Christmas parties that everyone has enjoyed. In the past they have also had Spaghetti Dinners. Recently the club has sponsored the Mohawk Valley Vintage Dirt Modifieds, Super Dirt Week at Oswego, and various Hard-Charger at Awards at special racing events.
NESCOT's largest fundraiser is the annual NESCOT Lottery Calendar, which uses its proceeds to help those in the racing community in a time of need.
The club welcomes all racers and fans to become members ... young and old alike.
So, come to a meeting and join us. You can find our next meeting anytime by simply checking out our Events Calendar on this website.
We will be looking forward to meeting you!
