100 Laps, Double Points Highlight Mid-Season Championship

Extra Distance Could Benefit Drivers Trying to Catch Rob Warren

July 7, 2017 – Goshen, IN…The Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS) Mid-Season Championship for non-wing supermodified sim racing is coming on Tuesday July 11, 2017. The race that features a big 100 lap feature paying double points is just the ticket that some drivers need if they want to catch series points leader Rob Warren.

Comfortable Point Lead for Warren

Warren took a big jump in the Gold Crest Non-Wing Supermodified Championship standings last week when he won swept the Independence Day Twin 25s. In so doing, he became just the third driver in SUPRS history to claim the DoubleDown bonus. That bonus rewards a driver that wins both features in a night with double points on the second feature.

Until he did that, Warren, the 2015 Gold Crest Non-Wing Supermodified Champion, had a narrow lead over 2016 Gold Crest Non-Wing Supermodified Champion Keith Powell. Powell, with two wins, looked to be the early favorite in the championship. But now it seems that Warren is the one everyone is chasing for the second half of the season.

Go Time for Everyone Else

Extra points, bonuses, and special points for being deemed Mid-Season Champion, mean this is the race that the SUPRS drivers look forward to as they try to make some major championship moves. This year, it’s guys like Powell, his teammate Steve Callahan, Domenic Gioia and Kyle Clark that are looking to use this race to stay in the hunt.

Gioia has gotten off to the best season start of his career by finishing on the podium three times in the first six races. Not be overlooked is the fact that Gioia won the Mid-Season Championship in 2014 and comes into the show solidly in the top five of the points.

Callahan Hoping to Avoid Calamity

Of all the other drivers mentioned so far, only Callahan joins Gioia as a former Mid-Season Champion. In fact he is the two-time and defending SUPRS Gold Crest Non-Wing Supermodified Champion. He’s also the only driver other than Warren and Powell to pull down a win so far this year. Callahan is also on the élite list of drivers that have more than one Mid-Season Championship crown with two. He’s the only driver competing that could claim a third. The only issue is, Callahan took a big hit last week when he couldn’t race which caused him to drop out of the top five, so he’ll be anxious to have a good run.

Will the Cobra Strike?

Kyle “The Cobra” Clark has steadily moved his way into the top five of the points. Week in and week out he has knocked on the door for his first feature win at Oswego Speedway. If he can slither away from the bad luck that seems to jump up and bite him in the long distance races, he could very well become a real contender for the championship.

Supermodified fan for over 30 years. Heard about this MOD and had to give it try! Been doing graphic art and design for along time. Owner of Breezegraphics Supermodified Art. Specializing in Vinyl Stickers and Window Clings. So designing my own paint scheme is right up my alley. :) Looking to enjoy some SUPRS racing and meet some new friends. Picked #77 in honor of "The King of Supermodifieds" Bentley Warren. I'll never forget that ragged old car (former swift 10pins) he used to muscle around The Steel Palace in the 70's.
