After 2-Week Break, SUPRS Returns to Action January 2, 2018
December 15, 2017 – Goshen, IN…The Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS), resumes racing after a two-week Christmas break with the 14th Annual Crazy Canuck Snowball Derby and Can-Am Challenge on January 2, 2018 at Mosport Speedway. This zany, wild and crazy supermodified sim race is always unpredictable, never boring, and more fun than you can throw a snowball at.
The Crazy Canuck Snowball Derby has the craziest format of the wing season. The SUPRS racers have to Time Trial, run a heat, qualify into a “Canadian Pursuit” as they race against each other and with a teammate.
The slowest driver from time-trials matches up with the fastest from time trials, the second fastest and the second slowest, and so on, to form the Snowball Derby Challenge teams.
Challenge Rewards Best Team Total
Each team member goes through the night trying to gain the most points possible . At the end of the night, the two-man team with the most combined points gets the overall Snowball Derby Challenge Championship bonus of 10 extra points to each driver.
Could Be a New Winner
Of the drivers sitting in the top five of the SUPRS 2017-18 Gold Crest Wing Supermodified Championship, only one, the current point leader, Rob Warren has won the Crazy Canuck Snowball Derby. Warren has the most feature wins this season so far, (five), and is hoping to win his third SUPRS feature in a row. With Jeff Weber being the only other active driver besides Warren that is a former winner of this race, it’s a distinct possibility that a new Crazy Canuck winner will emerge at the end of the night.
