Mid-Season Championship at Oswego Speedway Tuesday, SUPRS Bounty on Rob Warren
January 20, 2017 – Goshen, IN…The Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS), will run its Mid-Season Championship for the Gold Crest Wing Championship XIII on Tuesday January 27, 2017 and double points, multiple bonuses, and a SUPRS Bounty on the current point leader leader Rob Warren’s head, could lead to a big shake-up in the point standings.
The SUPRS Mid-Season Championship has plenty of racing in store for the supermodified sim racers and every time they hit the track they will have a chance to gain valuable points that add up toward the overall Mid-Season Championship.
Points from Time Trials, Heat Races, and double points for the Twin 35 lap features all add up and whoever has the best tally will be crowned SUPRS Mid-Season Champion and grab the 10 bonus points that go with the title.
Extra bonus points are up for grabs as well. The SUPRSCharger pays 10 points to the driver that advances the most places from his starting spot and the SUPRS Challenge awards a 10 point bonus to any driver that can win the feature from the last starting place.
While the focus will certainly be on winning the Mid-Season Championship, the racers will also be looking for a big points score in the ongoing Empire State Super Series Regional Tour of which this event is part of. Just last week Rob Warren won the opening round of the ESS season at Akron International Speedway.
Wanted: Rob Warren – A.K.A “Rocket”
With five feature wins in a row dating back to December 13, 2016, Rob Warren has become a wanted man. He is now one of a select few SUPRS drivers that has had to run from the bounty hunters.
The first driver to beat Warren will collect the SUPRS Bounty and will “take” ten points from Warren’s SUPRS Gold Crest Wing Championship total.
If Warren can keep the streak alive, he will get five championship points added to his total for the night and the bounty will increase by five points up to a total of 25 points for the bounty hunters.
“Rocket” Rob Warren is never one to shy away from a battle and with his history at Oswego Speedway, the bounty hunters will have their work cut out for them.
As a former SUPRS Gold Crest Wing Mid-Season Champion,(2011-12), the Pulaski, NY driver also has a big edge over all other current competitors when it comes to sitting in victory lane at Oswego Speedway.
Even though Warren has plenty of major victories in both wing and non-wing online supermodified races, (including the 2016 Topless! 200), and has 141 points on his nearest contender in the points battle, Keith Powell, when asked recently if he was nervous about losing the points to a bounty hunter he said, “And now a bounty. Nervous? Yeah, I’m wicked nervous.”
If Warren does win the Mid-Season Championship for the winged supermodifieds, he would become the fifth driver in SUPRS history to claim more than one and would join John Davidson, Myles Maxon, Bob Gangwer, and Ray Sand, Jr. who is the all-time Mid-Season Championship winner with four wing and two non-wing and is the defending Mid-Season champ.
