October 31, 2017 – Goshen, IN…The Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS), will honor the men and women who have served in the United States Military with the running of the 2017 Veterans Day Special on November 7, 2017.

Love your freedom? Thank a United States Veteran today!

The race takes place, for the second year in a row, at Levi Strauss Signature Speedway. This picturesque fictional rFactor track built by Gator is a challenging half-mile, high-banked tri-oval configuration. The Great Smokey Mountain National Park as a backdrop will do little to comfort the SUPRS racers as they fly around a track that is very abrasive, has very little straight away, and leaves little room for error as they always seem to be turning.

Powell Knows the Secret

Last year’s winner Keith Powell, when asked about how to keep a tire from shredding off the car in a 75 lap feature said, “I don’t think there’s much you can do, it’s just the track and because we are always working the rear tires so hard here, it’s probably just something we’re going to have to deal with.”

Powell dealt with the same issues in 2016. “I had a good long run car, and I wasn’t too excited” he stated after the race. “There was some great racing out there and I was in fourth watching the top three, not pushing the car. I just hung around with the lead pack watching some awesome racing, that top five pack before that last caution that was really something else,” explained Powell.

The Soldier

It is the soldier, not the reporter,
Who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the soldier, not the poet,
Who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the soldier, not the campus organizer,
Who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.

It is the soldier, not the lawyer,
Who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the soldier who salutes the flag,
Who serves under the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
who allows the protester to burn the flag.

-Charles M. Province

Black Kat Klassic Moves to Myrtle Beach

Different Venue-Same Thrills Expected

After many years at Decatur Speedway in Illinois, the race moved to Red Ball Raceway in Kentucky last year. Now, for the second time in as many years, the SUPRS racers will find themselves faced with the challenges of another new venue in Myrtle Beach Speedway.

Early test sessions show that this race track should prove to be just as unpredictable and nerve-wracking as Red Ball was last year. The track has several pronounced bumps that act to upset the high-powered supermodifieds, yet there are also many good passing zones on the half-mile in Myrtle Beach.

Powell on the Prowl

Defending Black Kat Klassic winner Keith Powell, who sits third in SUPRS Gold Crest Division Wing Supermodified Championship points , hopes to join Ray Sand, Jr., Myles Maxon, John Davidson and Carl Becker, as a multi-time Black Kat Klassic winner. Powell is also on the prowl for his first feature win of the season, having finished in the top three just twice so far in six races.

2006 winner Steve Callahan, and 2015 victor Rob Warren, are also on the list of potential multi-time Black Kat Klassic winners. Callahan led a good part of the recent Hickory Hustle only to be blocked out of victory lane and a second North Carolina Swing Championship by winner Rob Warren.

More Details

The brave SUPRS daredevils take on The Black Kat Klassic October 24, 2017 at the 1/2 mile Myrtle Beach Speedway. Practice starts at 8:15pm. Time Trials follow at 8:45pm and hair-raising racing gets under way with a special Crack the Whip race for the Elite 8 qualifiers at 9:00pm.
