Jon Beach Gets Dream Win on the High Banks of Winchester Speedway

Coughlin Gets Fourth Series Championship

 

Salem, IN. (October 18, 2021) – Mt. Morris, Michigan racer Jon Beach has always been a huge fan of racing at Winchester Speedway and the Winchester 400 Weekend, he finally got his “dream win” in Saturday’s JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by Chevrolet Performance Lucas Oil Slick Mist 75, making late passes of Ryan Luza for second and veteran Ohio racer Jack Smith to take the win.

 

“Wow, I can’t believe I got the win here at Winchester!”, remarked a very excited Beach in victory lane. “This is a dream win for me, something I’ve always wanted to get, especially being on Winchester 400 Weekend. The car really came to life at the end of the race, I just gave it everything I had, and we got it done. I’m just shocked that we did it. I have to thank everyone who helped me get here, my car owner Chris Munson, and the whole crew and everyone at VanDoorn Racing Development! This feels great, I’m on top of the world right now!”

 

The 2021 Season Championship event for the series was originally scheduled to be 100 laps and take place on Friday, but Mother Nature had other plans as multiple stoppages for rain caused the event to be moved to Saturday morning and shortened to 75 laps to help with the already busy schedule of events at the track that day.

 

Pole sitter Billy VanMeter dominated the first portion of the event, leading the first caution free 50 laps until the first segment of the race was checkered at lap 50, setting up the final 25 lap sprint.

 

On the lap 51 restart VanMeter and series rookie and Chase for the Championship contender Andrew Scheid got together with both cars spinning and suffering major damage, ending the day for both. Second place running Cody Coughlin also had damage but was able to rejoin the field at the tail of the field. That incident gave the lead to Smith on the next restart.

 

Beach kept his car out of trouble and steadily worked his way to the front avoiding a lap 69 incident involving Chase for the Championship competitors Chase Burda and Coughlin, with Coughlin again forced to pit for damage, but was able to return, unfortunately Burda’s car was too damaged to return.

 

Smith kept the lead on the lap 70 restart with first time series competitor Luza in second. Beach was able to get past Luza, then dove to the bottom of Smith and was able to make the pass and grab the win by just over a second. Beach picked up several awards including a Hoosier Race Tire Performance Award for coming from his 16th place starting position to get the win. He also picked up the Sweet Manufacturing Sweet Move of the Race Award for his pass of Smith to grab the lead and his Pit Crew earned the PitBoxes.com Pit Crew of the Race Award.

 

Smith would finish in second in his first series start with the Platinum Motorsports Team after starting 11th and earned the AR Bodies Cool Move of the Race Award. Texas native Luza would finish in third place.

 

Coughlin would come back to finish in fourth place despite being involved in two on track incidents and was the highest finisher of the four Chase for the Championship drivers, giving him his fourth JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Championship, he also won the Championship in 2013, 2016 and 2020.

 

Wisconsin native Nick Egan would come from his 12th place starting position to finish in fifth place in his series debut. Colby Lane would finish in sixth place.

 

Tanner Jack would finish in 7th place and earned the Senneker Performance Rookie of the Race Award and the Senneker Performance Rookie of the Year Award as well as a second place in the series Chase for the Championship.

Crump Wins JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Fall Brawl Event at Lucas Oil Raceway

 

Salem, IN. (October 10, 2021) – Brighton, Michigan driver Kyle Crump continued his great 2021 season by picking up his second all-time JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by Chevrolet Performance victory in Saturday night’s Allgaier Performance Parts Fall Brawl 100 at Lucas Oil Raceway. Crump led all 100 laps and held off several challengers on restarts to get the win.

 

“This has been a great 2021 season, “ remarked Crump in victory lane. “To win at Anderson Speedway and Berlin Raceway with the Rosen’s was great, and now to get the Crosstown Motorsports guys their first ever CRA win tonight at Lucas Oil Raceway was awesome. You see the pictures of the guys with the boxing gloves after winning the Fall Brawl events, those are so cool, and now I have a pair! I have to thank this great team for giving me this opportunity, they are still brand new to this deal, but we have shown how good this team is in the two races we’ve done with the JEGS Tour this year!”

 

Crump went to victory lane with the ARCA/CRA Super Series in the Redbud 400 in July and again in the Battle at Berlin 150 at Berlin Raceway in August for car owners Stan and Judi Rosen and is one of the four drivers who will race for that series’ Championship next Sunday in the 50th Lucas Oil Winchester 400 at Winchester Speedway.  The Crosstown Motorsports Team finished third in their CRA debut in the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour event at Birch Run Speedway on July 31st.

 

Crump took full advantage of his pole starting position to grab the lead at the drop of the green flag after Jerico Performance Parts Fast Qualifier Mike Bursley drew an eight for the event's inverted start. Outside pole sitter Brandon Oakley challenged Crump through the early laps but could not make up any ground.

 

The event was red flagged on lap 44 after Evan Shotko hit the wall in turns three and four after an oil line came loose creating a large clean up in turn four and down the front-stretch.

 

Shotko’s crew worked hard and got him back into the race, but Shotko spun on the backstretch on the restart creating a second quick caution after hard contact with the inside wall that ended his night.

 

Crump kept his lead over Oakley on the restart while sixth place starter Kyle Jones and ninth place starter Brian Campbell started working their way through the field creating a tough battle for second through fifth place when series rookie Andrew Scheid joined the fray with Oakley.

 

Jones was able to get to second but didn’t have enough to catch Crump who went on to get the win even with a lap 84 restart after Kevin Cremonesi spun on the front stretch setting up another tough restart. For his passes to get to second Jones picked up the Sweet Manufacturing Sweet Move of the race award.

 

Campbell would finish in third from his ninth place starting position and picked up a Hoosier Race Tire Performance Award. Oakley would fall back to finish fourth after running in second for most of the race.

 

Senneker Performance Rookie of the Year candidate Andrew Scheid put on another great performance in finishing fifth and picking up the Senneker Performance Rookie of the Race Award for the third straight event. Scheid’s crew received the PitBoxes.com Pit Crew of the Race Award after having to change a transmission after the first practice session and came back to qualify fifth and get the team's third straight top five finish even after missing the entire second practice session.

 

Saturday’s race was the last in the series’ 2021 Chase for the Championship preliminary races, setting up the three drivers along with Regular Season Champion Cody Coughlin, who will race for the series 2021 Championship this Friday night at Winchester Speedway. The other three drivers are Scheid, Chase Burda and rookie Tanner Jack.

Hunter Jack Crowned 2021 ARCA/CRA Super Series Powered by JEGS Champion

Salem, IN (October 25, 2021) – Butler, Indiana’s Hunter Jack was officially crowned the 2021 ARCA/CRA Super Series Powered by JEGS Champion in its 25th Anniversary Season Presented by Team Construction after finishing 12th in last Sunday’s 50th Lucas Oil Winchester 400 on the famous High Banks of Winchester Speedway. Jack was the highest finishing of the three 2021 Chase for the Championship competitors to claim his first ever CRA Championship after competing with the series for the last several seasons. Jack beat out 2016 series Champion Cody Coughlin, who finished 14th and Kyle Crump who finished in 17th.

 

“It means so much to me and my team that we are ARCA/CRA Super Series Champions,” remarked Hunter Jack. “We have worked for this for a couple of years now. All the long nights in the shop and the ups and downs we finally did it! We had a great season showing speed everywhere we went and leading laps.”

 

Jack had a consistent early season that started with a third-place finish at Salem Speedway on April 25th after leading 44 laps. Jack followed that up with a sixth-place finish in the North/South Super Late Model Challenge at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway, the highest finishing CRA regular in a tough field of Super Late Model drivers from around the country. A fourth-place finish followed at the Anderson Speedway event in May and followed that with an impressive second place finish at Flat Rock Speedway in June.

 

Three straight DNF’s with some bad luck followed in the Redbud 400, the Battle at Berlin 150 and at the Glass City 200 event at Toledo Speedway, in which he led the first 43 laps, but his early season good runs had already locked him into the Chase for the Championship as the series Regular Season Champion prior to his Championship finish at Winchester Speedway to close out the season.

 

Hunter Jack added,” I want to thank Jimmy Tucker for being a great crew chief all season long and making me and Tanner better drivers. I want to thank my mom and dad for everything they do so I can compete at this level. I also want to thank Vandoorn Racing Development for building great race cars and the support they give their customers. I want to thank McGunegill Engine Performance for building great race engines. I would also like to say thank you to CRA for giving us a great series to race in! Lastly, I want to say thank you to everyone that has helped and supported me throughout this awesome season, including my sponsors NAPA M&S Auto Parts, Hartman Autobody, Colormaster. INC, PFC Brakes and Allstar Performance!”

 

Hunter Jack is the son of long time Outlaw and Template Late Model competitor Brent Jack and the older brother of JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour competitor Tanner Jack, who had a great season in 2021 winning the series Senneker Performance Rookie of the Year and finishing second in that series 2021 Chase for the Championship.

 

“Our family, our team, our friends have worked extremely hard for many years to accomplish what we did this year,” remarked Team Owner and father Brent Jack. “We won the ARCA/CRA Super Series Championship and nearly won the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour points, what a story that would have been, brothers winning both series. We also had a car capable of winning the 400 but that wasn’t meant to be after some issues. Jimmy Tucker was on his A game all weekend making great calls, we had great people helping us, Jonathan Martin in the spotters stand, and great support from Vandoorn Racing Development and McGunegill Engine Performance. This is a family operation, I’m very proud of what we accomplished, my two sons work nightly and do most of the work on these cars. We also want to thank all our sponsors and CRA for a great series to race in!”

 

Hunter Jack picked up two of the 25th Anniversary Season Presented by Team Construction $1,000 Attendance Bonuses during the season and will receive a $2,500 25th Anniversary Season Championship bonus also from Team Construction, which is over and above the regular series points payout and Product Contingency Awards.

 

Hunter Jack will also get to participate in the ARCA Menards Series Road to Daytona Program at Daytona International Speedway courtesy of the ARCA Menards Series. Jack will get to test an ARCA Menards Series car at Daytona at the ARCA open test there in January.

2021 Winner and Champion:  Ben Ebeling in Command of SCSCS Final Night of Festivities at Dominion


 

Thornburg, Virginia (October 3, 2021) – All Ben Ebeling needed to do was finish in the top five to cap off a season of ultimate consistency and claim the championship.  The accomplishments went a step further with Saturday’s Super Cup Stock Car Series Championship Night at Dominion Raceway.

The afternoon started off with the Hickory, North Carolina driver setting a new track record of 15.768 seconds, a mere 15 thousandths of a second quicker than the only other remaining title contender Bob Schacht.  In addition to that, Ebeling’s son Landon drew him the first starting position as part of the six-car redraw.

Two yellow flags slowed the competition in the first 60-lap main event, but it was Ebeling’s No. 44 Startown Carpet & Floor Coverings / Swanny's Auto Sales / Wrenn’s Lawn Service / L & C Truck Repair / Battery Specialist of Hickory / RE Suspension Ford that established itself as the car to beat on the restarts and ensuing green flag runs.

Time in the shop was the key to a flag-to-flag victory, Ebeling’s eighth of the year, and what sealed the deal for the championship before the field even took the green flag for the second race.

“We unloaded good,” Ebeling answered.  “These guys and I, we all did our homework back at the shop and made sure everything was as good as it’s been all year.  We went over everything.  Fixed the brakes from Motor Mile, fixed a spark plug wire, did a bunch of stuff and just went over every bolt and nut on this car just to make sure it was as good as it could be.  Without these guys and stuff like that it wouldn’t be possible to have these successes.”

Twice a race winner last time out at Motor Mile Speedway, Jason Kitzmiller was able to advance to the runner-up position shortly after halfway, while Mooresville, North Carolina’s Schacht held on for third.  Jerod Brougher, making only his third start of 2021, would overcome from a broken axle during the optional practice the evening before to capture fourth in the No. 71 Backup Power / Donegal Auto Body / TNT Embroidery and Screening / Gen-Mark / Builders Unlimited Chevrolet.   Hard Charger honors went to Dusty Silvers, the Elizabethton, Tennessee driver claiming his first career top five performance.

The regional titles were also decided based on the outcome of the first race.  With the win, Ebeling additionally took top accolades in the South, a division in which he remains undefeated since the opportunity was introduced in 2017.  Kevin Kromer suffered mechanical issues in practice that kept the Walnutport, Pennsylvania driver from starting the feature, but last place points was more than enough to clinch the North.  One of the cautions occurred when Petersburg, West Virginia’s Brent Nelson, having a solid third place run going, blew an engine without warning.  Despite being sidelined, he was able to lock up the Mid-Atlantic title.

For the second main event it was the latter part of the top five from the initial 60 lapper, Stahlstown, Pennsylvania’s Brougher and Silvers in the No. 99 Boneyard Truck Parts / Silvers Family Racing Chevrolet on the front row.  Silvers shuffled back a few spots at the wave of the green flag, but Brougher led his first laps of the season from the get go.

By circuit number three Brougher had the nose-to-tail Schacht, Kitzmiller, and Ebeling pressuring behind him.  Contact ensued which sent the leader around.  Some additional activity under the yellow flag period resulted in both Brougher and Schacht being parked for the remainder of the distance.

This opened the door for Kitzmiller to lead on the restart, but a few laps later once again it was Ebeling that found a way around.  The race was far from over though as the Maysville, West Virginia driver chased down the pacesetter on a few occasions.

Nonetheless, it was a sweep of the night and record ninth win of the 2021 season for Ebeling.

“Jason definitely had something for us in that second race,” the now 18-time career SCSCS winner indicated.  “But I couldn’t have written this.  Bob (Schacht) is very fast here.  We always want to come to win and expect to win, but I expected to contend with him as well and he was tough.  I wasn’t thinking of getting the pole and both wins.  Very blessed to have that happen.”

Kitzmiller admitted having only the second best car in the first race, but recounted the next race and the pass that occurred shortly after the early restart.

“The second race we were tit for tat,” the driver of the No. 97 A.L.L. Construction / CR7 Motorsports Garage Chevrolet explained.  “I got in a bad push coming off of four; he got a good run on me and got under me in one and two.  It was a good move.  We got to him three different times, but I just got impatient is the absolute truth.  The car got tighter and tighter and had to use the right front up more than I wanted to getting to him and then when I got to him there would be a lapped car or something like that.

“It just wasn’t meant to be, but Ben ran a good race and he ran his car hard.  We both did.  We were sideways jumping off the corners several times, but it was a good race.”

Coming home with an even better result from the first race was Silvers.  A best career third also netted him the First-Time Winners plaque as the highest finishing driver who has not previously won a SCSCS race.  This all came in a car that they had brought out for the first time, a former winning ride with Jon Kerley behind the wheel in 2019, and is something to certainly build the momentum upon entering next year.

“Unexpected but feels pretty good,” the series rookie remarked.  “It’s our setup and we worked on it all week to get here and I’m just thrilled with it.  Don’t think I could have done any better tonight.  We’ll be back (in 2022) for sure.”

Uniontown, Pennsylvania’s Bill Ashton achieved a season best fourth in the No. 35 Bill’s Wood Stoves - Hopwood, PA / Budget Blinds of Altoona & State College / Ashton Racing Chevrolet while a late entry for the weekend, Littlestown, Pennsylvania’s Jason Schue, powered through to round out the top five in the No. 3 Firehouse Grill / 1st Choice Computer Solutions / Littlestown Car Wash / Peckie's Auto Body / Larry's Lawn Mower Repair / Jason Schue Racing Toyota, the best of his career.

Jeff Thomas from nearby Gloucester, Virginia earned Hard Charger honors and a best career sixth place result despite battling intermittent power steering issues with the No. 15 Charles Parks Photography / B.A.D.G.E. / Thomas Racing Team Chevrolet.

A future story will recap the season-ending awards presentation that took place the morning after at the Dominion Raceway facility.

Multiple of the 2021 races, including both SCSCS Championship Night Twin 60s, were filmed by the Pit Row TV crew and will premiere in the future nationally on MAVTV Motorsports Network.  Please visit mavtv.com for full listings of upcoming televised coverage and stay tuned to the official series web site at supercupstockcarseries.com and Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram accounts for an announcement regarding the aforementioned as well as any news and developments over the off-season heading into 2022.

Blessings Abound as 2021’s Award Winners Are Celebrated

 

Thornburg, Virginia (October 11, 2021) – The morning after the season-ending twin 60-lap races last weekend, several drivers along with their family and crew members converged one final time for 2021.  Thanks to the hospitality of Dominion Raceway, the annual awards presentation took place at the 118 Bar and Grill located on the facility property.

 

Festivities kicked off with series director Joe Schmaling announcing that the Super Cup Stock Car Series will again begin and conclude their 2022 season at the Thornburg, Virginia 4/10-mile oval on Saturday, April 30th and either September 24th or October 1st, respectively.  The final trophy presented was to the overall series champion, Ben Ebeling, the ninth different one in the last decade.

 

Despite success in previous years, this was the first full season that the Hickory, North Carolina driver was able to assemble, and much of it had to do with another longtime SCSCS competitor.

 

“Very blessed to have gotten hooked up with Bill (Ashton), have the sponsor support, and everything come together to be able to run all the races and run for the championship,” Ebeling, a record nine-time winner in 2021 who completed every lap of competition from beginning to end, commented.  “To have the year that we had, it’s just unbelievable.  Very thankful.”

 

Ashton had a rather uncharacteristic season of struggles behind the wheel himself, but was awarded Car Owner of the Year for his contributions toward Ebeling’s efforts.

 

“It’s been a real privilege to be the car owner of a guy like Ben, not only because of his driving ability and his mechanical skills, but the support that he has from his friends and his family race after race is just incredible,” the 2014 SCSCS Top Performing Rookie from Uniontown, Pennsylvania remarked.  “I look at that and I appreciate it.”

 

A winner on one occasion at Jennerstown Speedway in 2016, Ashton was given the opportunity to take the championship-winning No. 44 for a spin at the end of Saturday evening’s program.  The experience may have swayed his thoughts on the future following a season-high fourth place finish in the final main event in the No. 35 he prepares.

 

“All day (at Dominion) I was thinking that this was my last race, even as I was making the final laps I was convinced that this is the end of my racing career,” Ashton added.  “And then, after it was over they convinced me to jump in the seat of the 44 and I found out what it was like to drive a real racecar.  I think I have to give it one more year.  Maybe we can run one-two one of these days.”

 

Although some of the competitors were not able to stay or appear at the season-ending get together, all of the top 10 points finishers were recognized for their accomplishments.  2018 SCSCS champion Bob Schacht, Jason Kitzmiller, and Brent Nelson were all multi-time winners in 2021 and took second through fourth in that order, while 2019 champion Kevin Kromer rounded out the top five.

 

Kitzmiller was one of those drivers who was unable to attend on Sunday morning, but received this year’s Rookie of the Year award.  Coming on the scene late in 2019, the Maysville, West Virginia racer has steadily ascended from top five hopeful to a threat for the win at the drop of every green flag.  He took some time on Saturday night to discuss his evaluation of the year.

 

“We weren’t where we wanted to be the first half of the year, struggled some and had an engine failure at Midvale,” Kitzmiller, who did not finish any worse than second during the final three months of the season, noted.  “But the second half we were really strong.  It would be interesting to see where we were from the second Jennerstown race until the end where we would have shook out there.”

 

With the late season results, the outlook for 2022 will likely see Kitzmiller and CR7 Motorsports as one of the championship favorites, in which team patriarch Larry Berg received the annual Racing Spirit Award for his exemplification of such in life and his support on and off the track.

 

“We got to run a whole race season and we were third and hats off to the guys that were ahead of us,” Kitzmiller continued.  “We’re going to regroup and really looking forward to next year already.”

 

Divisional title honors, which were settled at the checkered flag of the first twin 60-lap race, were also accepted.  Ebeling remains undefeated in the South while Kromer captured the North for the third consecutive time.

 

“It was an accomplishment,” the Walnutport, Pennsylvania driver, who had an up and down year including mechanical troubles that sidelined him early from Dominion, said.  “To come off a real good season in 2019 winning the championship and then the pandemic hit and didn’t run 2020, you’d think you’d be really good and prepared, but we came into 2021 on a bad note right from the get go and it was an uphill crawl all the way.”

 

For the first time, a Mid-Atlantic region title was offered, resulting in Petersburg, West Virginia’s Nelson capturing the inaugural plaque.  His year started off slow but the eventual outcome was pure dominance at Jennerstown Speedway as well as some additional solid results.

 

“We were running the best we had and we were able to purchase another car and step our game up,” Nelson, whose final weekend of 2021 came to a quick end as well, indicated.  “From there, we ran well pretty much the whole season.  It didn’t end the way we wanted.  We started the race and were running third and 10 laps into it we lost a motor.  All in all, we had a great year.  We’ve got another car in the stable that we’re putting together and the motor is ready for that car.”

 

Nelson also accepted the Patrick Miller Sportsman of the Year, named after the series photographer who unexpectedly passed away in July.  The award goes to those who express camaraderie and a willingness to assist others above and beyond what is normally witnessed.  He mentioned an instance in which the help was given to him in order to race by a number of his fellow competitors.

 

“We’ve been in that situation where we’ve needed things and one of them was actually this year at Jennerstown when we broke the gear (the day before) up at (UMI Motorsports Park),” Nelson commented.  “If it wasn’t for the support of the drivers and the teams we would have never made that race and we went on and won the race that night.”

 

Samatha Rohrbaugh took home sixth in the final points and also earned the Charlie Canterbury Hard Charger of the Year award for moving up the most positions from start to finish on four occasions throughout 2021.  The aforementioned Ashton ended up seventh and finishing out the top 10 were 2019 Rookie of the Year Lauren Butler, 2016 champion Harvey Harrison, and newcomer plus Southern Division top performing rookie Dusty Silvers.

 

The Most Improved Driver of the Year award went to Hayden Brothers, who had turned many heads in the latter part of the season, including his first ever top five qualifying run and best career sixth place finish at Dominion.  Hayden and his twin brother Landon have been receiving advice from series champion Ebeling in recent months to bring their program along with momentum heading into 2022.

Speaking of 2022, what does it hold for Ebeling?  Will he be the first driver to potentially repeat as a champion since 2012?  It remains to be seen.

 

“I haven’t thought about next year yet.  We’ve been trying to get this year taken care of.  Bill (Ashton) fit in that seat pretty good so I don’t know if I’m going to have that seat anymore.”

 

For developments over the off-season detailing the Super Cup Stock Car Series please be sure to stay posted to the official series web site at supercupstockcarseries.com and FacebookTwitter, or Instagram accounts for more information regarding all that is being planned.

 

 

Stage Is Set for SCSCS Championship Night at Dominion Raceway

 

Statesville, North Carolina (September 28, 2021) – The scenarios have been calculated leading into the curtain-closing Super Cup Stock Car Series race weekend of 2021.  The overall champion along with various additional accolades will be named by night’s end at Dominion Raceway, the third consecutive instance in which the Thornburg, Virginia facility has hosted such an occasion.

 

Perhaps not coincidentally since they have led the pack from the get go, the two drivers remaining in contention for the championship split the victories at the 4/10-mile oval when the season began in early May.  Ben Ebeling holds a fairly comfortable 93-point advantage on Bob Schacht as the field of competitors will make their way onto the speedway on Saturday afternoon.

 

Ebeling, from Hickory, North Carolina, is currently in his longest dry spell between race wins (only four) over his SCSCS career, but has used consistency down the stretch to maintain command of the points lead.  He will essentially need to finish in the top five, a feat he has only failed to complete once in all of 2021, in order to lock up his first overall title and continue a span of no repeat champions since 2012.

 

Schacht, on the other hand, has gone winless since mid-May, but Dominion is the perfect venue for the Mooresville, North Carolina driver to break that slump.  The 2018 series champion has won on five different occasions at the track in which the SCSCS has been visiting since 2017.  Every form of bonus points, which can be obtained by setting fast time and leading laps, will be at a premium but absolutely necessary to have a shot at earning his second title.

 

These two drivers will also be dueling for one of the regional championships, which will be decided at the conclusion of the first of twin 60-lap main events.  The South division has only a 20-point separation, which could ultimately mean a different result than the overall champion.

 

There will be numerous more drivers on hand with their own set of goals to accomplish.  Walnutport, Pennsylvania’s Kevin Kromer, for instance, has already clinched the North division title but is eager to claim his first victory of 2021 at the same track in which he won and became the 2019 SCSCS champion.

 

Jason Kitzmiller has been the driver with the biggest hot streak as of late, sweeping the night at the latest event at Motor Mile Speedway and having not finished worse than second since the month of July.  The Maysville, West Virginia racer will be battling Petersburg, West Virginia’s Brent Nelson, a four-time winner in 2021, for both third in the overall standings and the Mid-Atlantic division honors.

 

Nelson will also be looking to catch fellow Petersburg driver Samatha Rohrbaugh for the season-ending Hard Charger of the Year, awarded to the driver who advances the most positions from start to finish on the most occasions throughout the year.

 

A coveted spot inside the top 10 in points is also up for grabs among a few drivers.  Relative newcomer Dusty Silvers from Elizabethton, Tennessee currently holds down the ninth position, but Pittsburgh’s Jeff Zillweger along with Renick, West Virginia father and son Harvey and Brian Harrison each have a chance at advancing their way forward in the standings.  All four of the aforementioned have never competed at Dominion before.

 

Following the feature races, a First-Time Winners race will be offered to those who have yet to win a SCSCS main event or previous exhibition.  Twin brothers from York, Pennsylvania Landon and Hayden Brothers have been two of the drivers showing marked improvement late in the season and are expected to be among the contenders.  Home state driver Jeff Thomas will present as well for his first appearance at the track closest to where he resides in Gloucester.

 

Other drivers will basically be going for nothing else but their best performance of the season.  Stahlstown, Pennsylvania’s Jerod Brougher has seen limited action in 2021, but took home the trophy in a prior First-Time Winners event at Dominion and also finished a career-best runner up in a main event there in 2019.  Uniontown, Pennsylvania’s Bill Ashton simply wants to turn a year filled with hard luck around and build upon a lone top five finish or perhaps secure his second career victory to close out the season.

 

Pit Row TV will be on hand to film and produce the weekend’s festivities, which will premiere on MAVTV Motorsports Network and associated viewing platforms during the winter months.  Title and presenting sponsorship is available for these shows and interested parties should contact series director Joe Schmaling at JoeSCSCS@gmail.com for more details as soon as possible.

 

First of three 20-minute practice sessions will fire off slightly prior to Noon with qualifying shortly after 3:00 p.m.  The first green flag is expected to fly at 5:00 p.m.

 

An early optional practice session will be offered to teams the evening before from 5:00 p.m. through 8:00 p.m.  On Sunday at 9:30 a.m., the season-ending trophy presentation for top award recipients will be hosted by Dominion Raceway.

 

For a detailed race day schedule as well as a comprehensive list of potentially expected entrants, please visit the Super Cup Stock Car Series official web site supercupstockcarseries.com.  Further interactive updates heading into and throughout race day will be available on Facebook (search Super Cup Stock Car Series), Twitter (@SCSCSRacing), and Instagram (SCSCS_Racing).

Bobby McCarty and Carson Kvapil Win at South Boston, Both Securing 2021 Championships

 

Mooresville, NC 10/17/21 – The Solid Rock Carriers CARS Tour crowned champions in both the Super Late Model and Late Model Stock divisions Saturday night at South Boston Speedway.

 

Both champions were the exact same drivers who won their select races.

 

Carson Kvapil dominated the 125 Super Late Model portion of the event to steal the 2021 championship from Matt Craig.

 

Bobby McCarty did the same taking the lead on lap two and never looked back. McCarty’s third win of the 2021 season was enough to be crowned a three-time CARS Late Model Stock Car Tour champion.

 

 

Super Late Model Recap

 

Matt Craig was the favorite coming into the season finale at South Boston to score a third consecutive CARS Super Late Model Tour championship, but it was Carson Kvapil who shocked everyone with a perfect race to win the 2021 championship.

 

Kvapil entered South Boston down 8 points to Craig. The Mooresville, North Carolina driver needed everything to go right to win the championship. That’s exactly what happened.

 

Kvapil scored the pole, led the most laps, and won the race to earn the maximum amount of points. With those results Kvapil also gained the season ending bonus point for most poles (1 point) and most wins (2 wins) for the 2021 season.

 

Craig’s third place finish and never having a shot at the top position to lead a lap ended the night with Craig down by a single point to Kvapil.

 

Ryan Moore finished between Kvapil and Craig in the second position. Kodie Conner finished fourth and Justin Crider rounded out the top five in the final Super Late Model event in series history.

 

Late Model Stock Car Recap

 

Bobby McCarty must have watched everything that Carson Kvapil did in the Super Late Model race, because he duplicated it almost exactly during the 125 Late Model Stock Car event.

 

The new three-time series champion took the lead on lap two and set sail, never looking back over the rest of the field. McCarty’s dominating win was his third of the 2021 season, the most of any driver.

 

Virginia native Daniel Silvestri brought home his second best finish of the 2021 campaign finishing second. Conner Hall making his series debut started from the pole position before eventually finishing third at night’s end.

 

Jonathan Shafer continued his top five streak with a fourth place finish and Mason Diaz rounded out the top five finishers.

 

Rookie and championship contender Kaden Honeycutt entered the points battle one marker behind McCarty, but a less than stellar qualifying effort was too much for the Texas youngster to overcome. Honeycutt to the checkered flag in the seventh position, unofficially finishing 13 points behind McCarty.

Deac McCaskill Welcomes Himself Back to Victory Lane at His Home Track of Wake County Speedway

Mooresville, NC 10/10/21 –Deac McCaskill was able to break through at his home track for his 8th career CARS Late Model Stock Car Tour victory at his home track of Wake County Speedway Sunday afternoon in Raleigh, North Carolina.

 

McCaskill led the most laps of the 125 lap event in route to the victory. It was an emotional victory for McCaskill who called the win “probably the biggest win of my career” in Edelbrock Victory Lane.

 

Layne Riggs pieced together a much needed solid second place finish, holding off a hard charging Jonathan Shafer, who came from an early race pit stop to finish third.

 

Jared Fryar finished in the fourth position with rookie Kaden Honeycutt rounding out the top five finishers.

 

Championship points contenders Bobby McCarty and Kaden Honeycutt are unofficially in the same position they were in prior to Wake County. McCarty has a single point advantage heading into the season finale next weekend at South Boston Speedway. McCarty will look to finish ahead of the rookie to secure his record breaking third series championship, while Honeycutt will look to do the same to become the first rookie champion in the series.

A new era is set to begin for the CARS Tour in 2022.

The Super Late Model division, which has been a part of the CARS Tour since its inception back in 2015, will be replaced by a Pro Late Model series that will run alongside Late Model Stocks for most of the season.


 

CARS Tour owner Jack McNelly sees the introduction of the Pro Late Model Tour as a logical step following recent developments with the Super Late Model division and is confident that the new venture will lead to continued growth for the series.   


 

“Our Super car count has been dwindling for several years now,” McNelly said. “It just got to the point where I felt like we needed to make a change so we could have a wider range of competitors that could be with us.”


 

While McNelly is disappointed to eliminate the Super Late Model Tour despite long-time loyalty from drivers like Matt Craig, Jeff Batten, Brandon Setzer and others, he hopes that many of the regulars will end up making the jump to the Pro Late Model Tour.


 

The primary difference between the Super Late Models and Pro Late Models is the crate engine utilized by the latter. Some Super Late Model team owners like Travis Kvapil already possess a crate engine that will allow them to make a seamless transition over to the new series.


 

McNelly said that the Pro Late Model Tour will follow similar rules to the CRA Series, Southern Super Series and those used by Montgomery Motor Speedway. A complete rules package will be announced to the teams on Nov. 15.


 

By not diverting from other established divisions in the region, McNelly said that Pro Late Model regulars will have more freedom to race wherever they want on an off weekend.


 

“Teams can load up on an off weekend and go to Pensacola, Montgomery or Nashville to race,” McNelly said. “Having the same rules may not be important for everybody but I’m sure we’re going to have a handful of drivers that run with us who want to run the All-American 400 and can do that without having to make any major changes.”


 

Along with being able to increase the number of doubleheader weekends with the two divisions, another factor that convinced McNelly to introduce a Pro Late Model series was his desire to create a developmental ladder inside the CARS Tour.


 

With more younger drivers entering the Late Model ranks over the past few years, McNelly believes the Pro Late Model Tour will give them an outlet to acquire valuable experience before they end up facing tougher competition at higher levels of auto racing.


 

“I think our car count will pick up,” McNelly said. “This will also be a natural steppingstone from Pro Late Models into a Late Model Stock, which is our premier division. The Supers weren’t going to move into Late Model Stocks but these young drivers can come in, run a year or two in Pro Late Models and then go into Late Model Stocks if that is what they want to do.”


 

McNelly said that he will always be grateful for the memories that were created during the six-year run of the Super Late Model Tour but he is excited to see the Pro Late Model Tour thrive alongside the Late Model Stock division for what he hopes will be for many years to come.


 

Schedules for both the Late Model Stock and Pro Late Model Tour will be announced during the season finale at South Boston Speedway on Oct. 16, with additional details coming later.

Casey Johnson Engraves His Name Into Oktoberfest History

 

Official Event Results

When Casey Johnson was asked if this was his biggest win in his career, he had a simple one word answer, “Absolutely!”

Johnson won the Oktoberfest 200, the season finale for the ARCA Midwest Tour at the 52nd Annual Oktoberfest Race Weekend at the La Crosse Speedway in West Salem, Wisconsin.

The Edgerton, Wisconsin native took the lead on lap 118 from Ty Majeski and held off a late challenge from Ty Majeski and Travis Sauter en route to adding his name to 31 other drivers who are on the list as Oktoberfest Race Weekend champions.

“Sure has a ring to it, doesn’t it,” a smiling Johnson said in victory lane when asked about being the big Oktoberfest winner. “We had a good car. It was hard to put that one away on Friday (where he finished second in the Dick Trickle 99 event), but we knew this was our best bullet and boy did she come alive late.”

Johnson led twice in the race, the first was when he took the lead from Dan Fredrickson on lap 79. He would lead until lap 88 when the only non-competition caution flew for an incident involving Fredrickson and Levon Van Der Geest in turn four. Fredrickson would retire from the race, while Van Der Geest re-joined the field with no right side door.

The defending two-time ARCA Midwest Tour champion would make his only controlled pit stop during the caution and would restart in sixth.

Majeski was one of five cars to stay on the track during the caution and would inherit the lead when the green flew on lap 97.

It only took 20 laps for Johnson to move his way back to the lead from Majeski.

Majeski, who wrapped up his fifth ARCA Midwest Tour championship, started to fade back all. the way to 15th and would go a lap down on lap 145.

Four laps later, the second and final competition caution flew and Majeski would get the lucky dog to get himself back on the lead lap. He would come into the pits and get fresh tires to make a run to the finish.

The green flag would fly on lap 156 with Johnson getting the lead over Travis Sauter. Sauter would try to stay within a second of Johnson but would not get close to challenge Johnson for the lead.

Majeski, with a fresh set of Hoosier tires on his car, made a hard run to the front hoping to catch Johnson to get the victory and a $15,100 Ultimate Challenge bonus, since he elected to start at the rear of the field.

He would make a strong charge to the front in the final ten laps as he went from fifth to second. Johnson had a big lead and Majeski would come up 2.827 seconds short of securing his third Oktoberfest 200 victory in a row, and fourth overall in his career.

Travis Sauter would hold on to third with Rich Bickle Jr., in his final Oktoberfest Race Weekend event, coming home fourth. Dalton Zehr would round out the top five.

“We basically set a pace, and that pace happen to be fast and keep it up front,” Johnson said. “We stayed in clean air, stayed out of trouble and everything just went our own way.”
Majeski’s strategy didn’t work out as they hoped for during the race.

“Obviously hindsight is 20/20, but all we needed was a caution there and we would have looked like the smart ones,” Majeski said after the race. “It’s just the way it goes sometimes. You win some that way and you lose some that way. Today just wasn’t our day.”

Travis Sauter was in the top three throughout the event and fell back to third in the late going of the event.

“I am not satisfied for sure. When you have a car that is this good, you should win the race,” Sauter said. “It’s just frustrating. I wore the right front tire out. Not sure why, but it just took away any chance we had to make a run at Casey. Honestly, I thought with 20 to go, I was going to blow the right front and knock the wall down. I was just hanging on there.”

Majeski makes history becoming the first five-time champion of the ARCA Midwest Tour.

“It means a lot. We have been doing this a long time together now,” Majeski explained. “I’m not the young guy on the block anymore. It’s been a pleasure to race with these guys with so many years and accomplished the things we did, these race cars are great and I get to drive them.”

Luke Fenhaus, who finished second in points, won the ARCA Midwest Tour Rookie of the Year title.

“It was a good overall season, you can’t complain,” Fenhaus said. “Pretty much every ARCA Midwest Tour race, we had fast race cars. We thrashed on them and made them better.

“There is so much competition week in and week out, it’s tough to compete with these guys. I felt like every race, we had a chance to win.”

Majeski Takes a Giant Ultimate Challenge for the Oktoberfest 200

 

Ty Majeski started his quest to claim his fifth ARCA Midwest Tour title by setting a new track record in qualifying then taking the Ultimate Challenge for Sunday’s Oktoberfest 200, part of the 52nd Annual Oktoberfest Race Weekend at the La Crosse Speedway in West Salem, WI.

Majeski set a new track record in qualifying with a time of 18.476 seconds (106.192 mph) with Travis Sauter in second with a time of 18.581 seconds (105.592 mph) and Levon Van Der Geest in third with a time of 18.662 seconds (105.133 mph).

Majeski rolled a six in pre-race ceremonies to create a 15-car invert, but Majeski has elected to take the Ultimate Challenge where he will start at the rear of the field. The Ultimate Challenge was up to $15,000 at press time.

The ARCA Midwest Tour had their preliminary races on Saturday night with odd/even dashes for the top 16 locked into the field.

Luke Fenhaus won the odd dash with Griffin McGrath in second and Skylar Holzhausen in third.

Dalton Zehr held off Johnny Sauter to win the even heat. Dan Fredrickson was third.

Two 12-lap qualifying features determined positions 17-20, with the top two from each making the big show.

Former Oktoberfest 200 winner Andrew Morrissey won the first qualifying feature with Justin Mondeik holding off Dillon Hammond for the second transfer spot.

Carson Kvapil, son of 2003 NASCAR Truck Series champion Travis Kvapil, won the second qualifying feature with Bryan Syer-Keske in second. They are in the field for Sunday’s 200-lap feature event.

There will be a last chance race tomorrow to fill the rest of the field.

On Sunday, come out early to be a part of the on-track autograph session at 10:45am. The racing action will get underway at noon.
