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.

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.

Black Kat Klassic Has New Venue

Thrills and Chills Expected at New Venue for October Ending Race

The race had been held for many years at the slightly banked 1/2 mile of  Decatur Speedway in Illinois using the SUPRS W v6.0 mod for NASCAR Heat. The move to Red Ball Raceway in Kentucky also signals a move to rFactor, high-banks and nerve-wracking speed every lap.

The SUPRS 2016-17 Gold Crest Championship got underway last week with the Harvest of Speed opener, and for the first time, Bob Gangwer was victorious in this race.

In the 13 year history of SUPRS, there has never been a driver that has won the first two races of the season in a row, so Gangwer is looking to not only break that record, but also hoping to win his first ever Black Kat Klassic.

Defending Black Kat Klassic winner Rob Warren, who led a good part of the season opener at LaPorte, hopes to join Ray Sand, Jr., Myles Maxon, John Davidson and Carl Becker, as a multi-time Black Kat Klassic winner.

Becker was back in action after a summer off and looked good at LaPorte last week. He qualified second quick and ran in the top five at times, ending up sixth at the end of the race. His one downfall may be that he has very little track time in his rFactor sim racing supermodified, but he has been faster each time he’s taken it out on the Red Ball Raceway banks.

The fearless SUPRS thrill seekers take on high-banked 5/8 mile Red Ball Raceway October 25, 2016 beginning with practice which starts at 8:00pm. Time Trials will follow at 8:30pm and spine chilling racing gets under way with a special Crack the Whip race for the Fast Four qualifiers at 9:00pm.
