More than 30 years of experience goes into every carburetor that leaves our bench. We rebuild and modify all types of carbs from lawn equipment toperformance vehiclesof all types. Over the years our "inspection legal" Holley 4412 carbs have become VERY popular nationwide in many types of motorsports, with sales and race win numbers growing each year. If you race in a division that requires a 4412 Holley, you already know better than show up at the track with a stock "out of the box" carb. Many folksseem to think they need to spend over $1000 for a 2bbl.carb if they want to run up front. DFC RacingHolley 4412 carbshave proven that theory to be wrong for years on dirt as well as asphalt, and even at the tractor pulls. Those big name shops that sell the high dollar carbs often brag about being "authorized Holley modifiers", yet they often fail to put the work into their products that we do. Simply put, our recipes are proven on the track, not with some fancy authorization logo from Holley. Chances are that you've already followed one of these carbs on the track. Are ya tired of following yet?

While Holley 4412 carbs have become our most popular item, we're always happy to rebuild or modify any type of carb to fit your needs. Feel free to contact us with your questions and to see what we can do for you.

Finally Getting Back To Those Racing Fumes!

Between all the rain-outs, family obligations, and a shredded tire on route 30, it was about a month and a half before I finally got back to a track for some racing action. Sure I got to visit a couple during the week for some testing and bullshit sessions, but I needed my favorite coney dogs and those kickass Hilltop Fries in a bad way. Last week there was nothing short of disaster that would keep me away. Blazing temps made for some dust and a slick track, but that wasn't gonna ruin my fun. The only thing that put a damper on the night was that crybaby BITCH that rushed straight to Facebook (while sitting in the friggin stands) to complain about the dust. I was there when Buck offered to refund her money along with admission price for her candy ass boyfriend, who also rushed to Facebook to cry like a BITCH while sitting in the stands. Why am I being so harsh on these two assholes? Well, she explained very clearly to Buck and I that the internet is where people voice their opinions. So, since I don't dabble in the evil that is Facebook, here's my opinion. First, if you go to a DIRT track on a 94 degree day, you should probably expect some dust, possibly plenty of it since water simply runs off once the track has hardened. If you find the outside real world not quite as pleasant as parking your ass behind a keyboard indoors, maybe you should take up an indoor sport or stick to playing those online games. Secondly, if you find yourself unhappy with those icky outdoor conditions and want to express your displeasure, grow a pair and talk to management in person like an adult. Any business in the world would be happy to discuss your issues in person rather than get bashed from a keyboard, and you won't find a more "eager to please" owner than Buck Smitley of Hilltop Speedway. I know it's tough for this damn Facebook generation to have an actual 2 sided conversation where you're accountable for your actions and "comments", but that's what it takes to actually accomplish things in the grownup world. Give it a try sometime if ya dare. ;-) Oh, and just in case you've convinced yourself that the dust problem was only at Hilltop, I can point out some videos from another local track on the same night that look at least as bad. Go figure.

Alright, now to the racing. Last week the slick track did indeed take away some of the 3 and 4 wide action that Hilltop is known for but there was plenty of passing going on and drivers used every inch of the racing surface. In the Street Stocks, the slicker surface actually leveled the playing field a bit. The big motor guys had their hands full all night and Bob Chilcote took home the $1000 feature win while Lonas peddled that big ass motor the best he could to pick up second with Daugherty on his tail.

This week the track was in great shape and even with the scorching temps the dust was under control. This brought back the awesome side by side racing we expect on "The Hill" for sure. Dashes and heat races gave us just a hint at the battles we'd see when the features lined up. Late Models, Modifieds, and Street Stocks gave us unreal battles for the lead and throughout the fields, along with door to door finishes at the checkers. The Late Model feature will be one to remember for anybody that witnessed it. JR Gentry jumped to an early lead and kept his foot through the radiator for almost the entire race, lifting only slightly to slice his way through lapped traffic. Meanwhile there was one hell of a battle behind him trying to decide who would try to take the lead away. Markham finally secured 2nd and went to work trying to reel Gentry in. By midway he closed in tight but didn't push his luck just yet. This ol' veteran hasn't won a gazillion features by taking chances early that he didn't have to. Lapped traffic would once again play a role coming for the white flag and Markham was ready to capitalize this time and stole the win from Gentry. Gentry said later that he may have been too conservative with the lapped traffic at the end but I honestly don't think he could have played it any harder without causing a huge mess of twisted metal. As hard as that loss had to be for Jr, he put on one of the best examples of class you could ask for after the race. He climbed from his car on the front stretch to shake the hand of the man that took his win away. I'll be the first to admit that I haven't always seen that attitude from Gentry, but this was sincere and it was truly a class act. Hats off to ya JR! You might just become the man your legendary father is someday. ;-)

Coming up this Saturday June 25th will be Mid-Season Championship Night at Hilltop Speedway. The 25th would also have been my Dads 84th birthday and I know exactly where he'd expect me to be. See ya at Hilltop folks!!!



2016 Season In Full Swing Now
 by Bob on Wednesday, Apr 27th
View or post comments on this article Printer friendly page
DFC Racing Now that all of our local tracks have opened up the gates, there's plenty of action to be found for dirt and asphalt racers and fans. Barberton Speedway has kicked off their first full season with the new ownership and the place has been packed. They've spent plenty of money and hard work to spruce up the 1/4 mile bullring and the racers and fans have been rewarding them for their efforts. It's worth the trip even for you dirt fans to check this place out this season.

Deerfield Raceway started their seaon this past weekend with 99 cars in the pits. That says alot about the place with the weather being just a little less than optimal for racers and fans. The gang at Deerfield put on a great show each week and go out of their way to make every vistor feel like family. You can't find a more family oriented crowd in the stands at any other track I've ever visited. This is another 1/4 mile bullring, but this one is dirt of course. Be sure to make plans to take in a show here and I promise you'll want to return.

Hilltop has already had 3 shows so far and the action has been nothing short of awesome. On April 16th the stands were once again packed and the fans got one hell of a show. In the days of lighter car counts everywhere, it was great to see not one but three B-Main races in one night. The Late Model and Modified fields were filled with the very best competition to be found in the area. One Late Model team even made the trip from Canada! Last week we saw Corey Conley pick up his second win of the year from his 11th place starting spot to the surpise of many. So far it seems that Conley can't be beat when it comes to the Late Models, but this past weekend almost turned out differently. 2015 points champion, Kyle Moore, struggled with his new ride on the 16th but this week he had that Kryptonite dialed in. He jumped out to an early lead and started to drive away from the field briefly. It didn't take long for Conley to find his way to 2nd though and he began hounding Moore for the lead. There were some great battles behind them but these two drivers had a damn good clean battle for most of the feature with lapped traffic often playing a role. Coming to get the white flag that lapped traffic would help decide the outcome of this feature. Moore chose the risky move of trying a narrow line around lapped traffic getting into turn 3. It was a clean move and Moore kept from moving the slower traffic out of the way, but it would cost him the lead. Conley chose the safer route and stole the lead by turn 4. Ya can't say Moore didn't give it all he had to try to regain the lead but he just couldn't pull it off in one lap. The crowd sure as hell got a show though. You won't want to miss the action this week as I expect Moore and others will try to knock Conley off his throne. Keep an eye on that Moore fella. ;-)



Hilltop Sponsors Stepping Up For April 16th Show

DFC Racing

Mother Nature finally seems ready to allow Hilltop Speedway to get back to racing this weekend and you won't want to miss this one. Not only will all divisions be back in action this week, but some loyal sponsors have stepped up to make this even more interesting. The Modifieds will now be chasing $1200 to win, along with some extra cash thrown in for the top five spots. There will also be some bonus money offered up for the fastest qualifier, hard charger, and even the longest haul. Each of these racers will snag an extra $100 for their efforts. There's always a kickass field of Mods on hand at Hilltop and these offerings should bring in a few more hot shots this week. Those strong enough to make the field for the feature will at least pick up $150 start money. What a great way to salute the strong field of Modified teams that support Hilltop weekly!

The cash doesn't all go to just the Mods this week either. The Street Stocks will be chasing $700 to win and $100 just to start the feature. The Mini Stocks will be racing for an increased purse of $300 to win also. These divisions racing for extra money, along with the always stout fields of Late Models, and Modlites, will surely make for one hell of a show. You have no excuses this weekend for not getting to Hilltop for the best action on dirt. See ya there!



Hilltop Packs The House To Kickoff 2016 Season
 by Bob on Sunday, Mar 27th

This past winter may not have been quite as brutal as we've become used to around these parts, but it seemed to be just as long. Especially when we're all itching to get back to a race track. Lucky for us, Hilltop Speedway has always been just as eager to get back to action as early as they think it may be possible. Each year I have my doubts about the weather being decent enough, or that the fans are willing to brave the cooler temps for their first racing fix of the year. Then I get to Hilltop and those doubts are all gone. They've been fortunate to draw pretty decent crowds for each of their opening nights, but last night topped them all. Loyal fans packed the place and they were treated to one hell of a night of racing. Other than the truck class, each division brought a full field of competitors that came to play hard and keep the fans on their feet. The Late Model Dash looked like they were racing for a million bucks, or at least braggin' rights for winning the first dash of the season.

Tyler Carpenter picked up the feature win on Friday night at Legendary Hilltop Speedway in Marietta, and I'm sure he planned on being crowned "king of both hills" before the weekend was over. I'll admit that I kinda expected him to pull it off with his smooth driving style and kickass Kryptonite car. However, a few others in the field had plans of their own. Shane McLoughlin may have brought a plain looking ride to the show, but he battled the best of them to pick up the Dash win in fine fashion. When the feature lined up it was clear that there would be plenty of action to keep your eyes on throughout the field. It would be another West Virginia native, Corey Conley, that would slide his way into the lead early on. Corey seemed to have found some magic since the Dash race and pulled away a bit before battling lapped traffic. Meanwhile there was some serious racing going on behind him fighting for second through fifth. Slowly and patiently Carpenter worked his way to second and started to reel in Conley. The laps were winding down fast but a late caution would put Carpenter on the rear bumper of the leader for a restart. He was able to get under Conley a few times to threaten for the lead, but that only seemed like a wakeup call for Conley. He must have had his right foot through the firewall that last lap as he pulled away for a hard earned win. Carpenter would settle for second, Greg Oaks brought home a damn strong third, moving McLoughlin to fourth. Mike Lonas rounded out the top five.

The Modifieds put on a great show of their own with Wisecarver picking up the win. Bringing home a top five finish in his new ride was previous Hilltop owner, Jesse Wardell. It's damn good to see him back in action on the very same track that he helped make so popular. One fella that didn't get to see much action last night was Rory Reed. He had a strong run going in the heat race locking up second place until the final laps when the "magic smoke" rolled out of his engine and onto the track. Anybody out there have a spare engine laying around??

A Little Racing News To Warm You Up
 by Bob on Thursday, Jan 14th

DFC Racing
The 2016 racing season is not that far away even though it seems like Ol' Man Winter has just started to set in. There will be no shortage of great racing action in our area once again this year so be sure to get out and support your local tracks and racers every chance you get. Asphalt fans will be happy to hear that Barberton Speedway will finally be back in action for a full season in 2016. If they can draw in anywhere near the support they got for their end of the season Cavalcade weekend throughout their weekly shows this place will be well worth the trip, even if you're a dirt fan. There may also be one other area track making a huge return in our area this season if all goes as planned. The legendary Dragway 42 has been going through a very impressive make-over the past couple of years, and they tell me that the thunder of drag cars should return this summer. It's nearly impossible for me to believe what they're building where my home dragstrip once was. For you dirt fans my only comparison would be building a new NASCAR track at the Lakeville property. This will be a top notch facility in every way and you'll damn sure find me there when the gates finally swing open on this shiny new work of art.


This is the time of year that tracks are busy working to finalize their schedules and tweak their programs to better serve the racers and fans. Hilltop is always at the top of that list when it comes to ways to improve their shows while keeping it affordable for everyone. This is still the only track in the area that offers the crazy affordable yearly driver registration that includes one free pass for every night they participate in. This year the price for that registration has finally been bumped up from $100 to $125 to help cover increased operating costs, but still nobody else dares to come close to this offer. To snag this deal drivers/owners need to get their completed registration and payment (check or money order) mailed in by March 1st. The form is available on the Hilltop website and should be mailed to Hilltop Speedway, 10313 Back Orrville Road, Orrville, OH 44667. Other changes for this season at Hilltop include new hours that will be in place the entire racing season. They are posted below. This should avoid any confusion that came from the spring time hours and summer time hours they've used in the past. The new hours along with other tweaks should also help to get old folks like me back home a bit earlier after a kickass night of racing. Other fine tuning including some rule changes are still being worked out and will be announced soon. I look forward to once again spending as much time as possible at Hilltop Speedway, and I hope you will too. After all, it's always the place to find the very best door to door action on dirt!


NEW Hours Of Operation For Hilltop In 2016

Pit gates open at 3:30 pm

Pill Draw Closes at 5:15 pm

Hot Laps start at 5:30 pm

Racing starts at 7:00 pm

Main Gate opens at 4:00 pm

Main Concessions and Pit Concessions open at 4:30 pm



A Very Special Holiday Message
 by Bob on Wednesday, Dec 23rd
View or post comments on this article Printer friendly page
DFC Racing I know it's been a few years since I posted one of these, but this year it seems like I really needed to. No, this one isn't about racing, but it is about the man that got me into racing in the first place, and made damn sure I stuck with it even while he went through the roughest times of his own life. For those of you that have lost somebody that meant the world to you, I figure you'll understand. For the rest of you, I strongly encourage you to make the best of every day you get to spend with your loved ones. I'm very blessed to say that I did just that the past few years. Next racing season will be a little odd for me without that early morning call after race night asking me who won and such, but I figure now he'll get to see the action from a much better view. Merry Christmas to all of you from DFC Racing!

Twas the night before Christmas,
and I was out in the garage.
What's that in the corner?
It must be a mirage.
It was a very familiar face
with a shit eatin' grin.
He said that's enough work son,
it's time to go in.
I stuttered and I stammered,
nearly fell on my butt.
Something told me it was true,
I could feel it in my gut.
Right there in front of me,
was the man I called Pop.
It's been quite a while,
since I've seen him in my shop.
He said he got bored,
hanging out with old friends.
So he came back to visit,
and tie up some loose ends.
I asked what he meant,
what he felt wasn't done.
He said grab us some beers,
and I'll tell you my son.
I said I don't have Yuengling,
I hope Bud Light will do.
The old man just chuckled,
and said oh fook sti kuh.
He twisted one open,
and took a big chug.
Then he walked up to me,
and gave me a big hug.
He said that's just in case you doubted,
the last time I did that.
I pulled up a chair,
and then quickly sat.
So that was you on that final night?
That feeling of comfort in knowing
that you were finally alright?
You must have been the one
that held back all my tears,
chased away all the sadness,
and took away any fears.
I've often suspected
that it was you all along.
Thank you for being there
and keeping me strong.
He said as your gramma was guiding me
towards that big fancy gate,
I wanted to be there for you,
but feared it was too late.
So I wrappped my arms around you,
and held you real tight.
So Merry Christmas son
and to all a good night!



Awesome Way To Wind Down 2015 Season At Hilltop
 by Bob on Thursday, Sep 24th
View or post comments on this article Printer friendly page
DFC Racing

It was quite a long wait between Season Championship Night and the Weekend On The Hill, but as always, this show was well worth the wait. There was a complete racing program each night so teams didn't have to commit to being tied to one track all weekend. Looking at the packed pits and grandstands, it was clear that not many folks planned to miss any of the door to door action this place is known for. Even the cool ugly rain on Saturday couldn't keep racers and fans away from their last shot at racing action of the year on "The Hill".

A kickass field of 29 Late Models would take to the track on Friday night. Larry Bellman would set fast time but this night belonged to Mike Lonas and his Kryptonite race car. There were plenty of those badass Kryptonite cars there including Fast Freddie himself, but nobody seemed to have anything for Lonas all night long. Mike picked up the Dash win putting him at the front of the field for the feature. That was bad news for the rest of the field although Bond did give Lonas a battle at times early on. Bond, Carpenter, Hottinger, Malcuit, Conley and Markham could only fight over second place for the rest of the show. As if that wasn't a strong enough show for Lonas, he then went on to pick up the Street Stock feature win while he was at it. Damn what a night for one of Hilltop's most loyal weekly regulars. Congrats to ya Mike!

Saturday brought many changes including plenty of rain throughout the afternoon. Rain can do terrible things to a dirt track, but if run in right it can also make for a damn fast track. I'd have to say it was run in right as Markham set fast time turning the smooth as glass lap of 14.920. Tyler Carpenter added yet another Kryptonite car to the field on Saturday but missed the dash giving himself a bit tougher job when the feature came along. At the drop of the green of the Dash race it looked like Markham would pick up where Lonas left off the night before. Ryan is often know to be a bit laid back until feature time but he wasted no time working his way from the tail to the front. Laps would run out before he could get the lead away from Hottinger, but it was clear at this point Markham came to win the 30 lapper. Early in the feature it was all Markham with Hottinger, Conley, and Fast Freddie all fighting for second place. By the time a late caution flew with just 9 laps to go Conley had earned that 2nd place and was hounding Markham for the lead. On that restart we were treated to some of the best action all weekend as Conley squeaked into the lead and Tyler Carpenter stepped up his drive to the front. This young fella worked every inch of the track surface to drive by anybody in his way including his own dad. He was on a rail up top at the end and I can only guess he misjudged the number of laps left because it probably wouldn't have take 2 more laps for him to take the lead. As the checkers flew he would have to settle for 3rd as he was setting up that lead stealing move. Still one hell of a late race charge for one of the best young drivers I've ever seen strap on a helmet. What a show all of these drivers put on both nights!

I'm not sure how many of you out there realize just how lucky we are to be treated to such kickass racing action at a track that goes above and beyond to make sure each show is the best it can be. From treating racers and fans like family, to all the hard work it takes during the week and during the off-season to keep things headed the right direction, it's quite impressive. So I want to sincerely thank Buck, Amy and the entire gang at Hilltop for all that they do to provide us with our racing fix, and my home away from home. THANKS to all of you!



My Dad, My Best Friend, My Hero

DFC Racing No matter how much time we're given to prepare for something like this, the loss of a loved one always seems too soon. I can honestly take comfort in the fact that Pop was much more prepared to leave this earth than the rest of us were for his passing. I often felt somewhat selfish for wanting him to be here forever, especially while watching him suffer so much the past few years. The past few weeks have been the toughest to witness, and I'm actually thankful that he's finally resting with no more pain and suffering. This great man that made me who I am today passed away peacefully before my very eyes, and while I'm sure our pain will last a while, his is finally gone. For that I'm very grateful.

While he may no longer be here with us, the life long lessons he gave me will never go away. I've done my very best to pass them along to my own kids and my granddaughter because they're so very important and valuable. If it wasn't for Pop, I probably would have never gotten involved in racing, but he gave me so much more. He taught us that hard work is a blessing to be proud of, not a curse. He taught us to treat everybody with respect, even those that may not earn it. I watched this man literally give his last dollar from his wallet to help somebody in need. Back in the good ol' days he even helped racers that we competed against to get a decent engine when they were in need. A couple of those racers are still very thankful to this day, and have even reminded me of his help when they needed it the most. I could easily fill a book with stories of his kind gestures and what they've taught me over my lifetime. I doubt that many that were lucky enough to know him would need to read that book though. They already know what a great man he was and have probably also learned from him. Pop may have moved on to a much better place, but his lessons will live on for generations. For that and so much more, I'm truly thankful. Rest in peace Pop. You've certainly earned it!



Conley Makes It 3 In A Row At Hilltop
 by Bob on Monday, Aug 10th

DFC Racing

For the first time in a few weeks, I finally got to stay for the entire show at Hilltop. My parents took turns getting hauled to the emergency room in recent weeks, and although my dad is still in pretty bad shape, he's at least out of the hospital for now. THANKS to all the support from those of you in the racing community!

I have been at the track long enough lately to see some very nice car counts and great crowds, and this week was even better. A strong field of 25 Late Models and 24 Modifieds were just the icing on the cake this week. All divisions brought very good car counts and put on great shows and the kids were also treated to some extra fun and prizes since it was Kids Night. The great support of racers, sponsors, fans, and others was obvious as they all pitched in to donate prizes and more. Hats off to all of you!

The Late Model feature this week was action packed as always, and for Corey Conley it was time to see if his most recent tweaks to his ride would allow him to continue his win streak on The Hill. He was plenty fast in qualifying but failed to set fast time. When it was time for the Dash, he was once again quick to make his way to the front but Kyle Moore seemed to be in his own zone for the first time in a few weeks as he picked up the Dash win. Moore would start on the pole for the feature and it would be up to Conley and the others to find a way around him. On the first lap they did just that and Moore quickly found himself in 3rd place in a group of 4 cars all fighting for the lead. I had a feeling Moore wouldn't stand for 3rd place and we'd be in for a wild show as he went to work to do something about that. Cheer him or boo him, nobody can deny this fella puts on one hell of a show, and gets every single bit of performance out of a car that it has to offer. By the end of a night that's often shown by the lack of straight body panels on the car, but we've all come to expect that by now :-) Before long Moore worked his way into 2nd while trying his very best to widen the track on both ends. That high groove allowed him to begin his run on the outside of Conley for the lead. A caution would kill his momentum and it just never seemed to return after the restart. He was able to hang with Corey but just couldn't make another charge for the lead. After clearing some lapped traffic it looked like Conley found an overdrive gear in that Bert transmission as he set sail all by himself to pick up his 3rd feature win in a row. I'm not sure what it's going to take to end Conley's streak but there's plenty of talent at Hilltop each week that can pull it off so I reckon we might just find out next week.

Next Saturday, August 15th will be their last chance for a while to end that win streak as Hilltop closes out their points season on Season Championship Night. After that they'll have to wait until the 7th Annual Weekend On The Hill that will be held on September 18th and 19th. More details on that show will be posted soon but this is one of those shows you sure as hell don't want to miss. Load up the family and friends and get your dirt racing fix while ya can folks!
