In the 12 year history of the race there has never been a repeat winner in the quick 25 lap sprint for non-wing sim supermodifieds and that streak could be broken this year as both Ray Sand, Jr. and Rob Warren have dominated the win column for SUPRS.

Warren is the most recent SUPRS winner, taking the Dion Parish Memorial last week and while Sand, Jr. is the 2008 Christmas Special winner, the current track record holder at Bracket Hill Raceway and in nine Christmas Special races run, has finished out of the top five just once and out of the top three a mere four times.

Rob Warren holds off a hard-charging Ray Sand, Jr. as they cross the stripe for the white flag at the 2014 Christmas Special.

Last year both drivers figured into the outcome of the race. After starting from the pole position and fending off Sand, Jr., Warren parked his First to Finish Docks & Hoists machine in victory lane for the 12th Annual Christmas Special.

Then, in the true spirit of the Christmas season, after accepting the accolades and awards for his win, including a Burgers’ Smokehouse Christmas Ham, he promptly asked that the ham be sent to Jeff Russell, a supermodified racer that continues to recover from Traumatic Brain Injury suffered at Las Vegas Bullring in 2010.

Former winners Steve Callahan and Bob Gangwer are expected to challenge Sand, Jr. and Warren for the win. Dave Brigandi and Domenic Gioia, both sitting in the top of the SUPRS Gold Crest Wing Championship Points Standings, should never be counted out, even though neither has run more than two Christmas Specials.

The Christmas Special will feature a full format including time trials, Fast 4 ReindeerBurgers' Smokehouse logo Dash and Heat Races, then closes with the short 25 lap sprint to the checkered flag in the feature race at Bracket Hill Raceway. Again this year, the winner will receive a Christmas Ham from Burgers’ Smokehouse delivered in time to enjoy for Christmas Dinner.

Practice for the 12th Annual Christmas Special gets rolling at 8:00pm.  with practice which starts at 8:00pm. Time Trials are at 8:30pm and Racing gets underway at 9:00pm. Full details can be found on the SUPRS schedule page.

Christmas Special is Last SUPRS Race of 2014

Goshen, IN – December 14, 2014…The Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series will end the year with the 11th Annual Christmas Special 25 at Bracket Hill Raceway in New Hampshire this Tuesday night.

This race is the last show before a two week break in the action to allow all members a chance to spend time with their families during the holiday break.

In the 11 year history of the race there has never been a repeat winner and there’s a good chance that 2014 will carry on the tradition as Myles Maxon has dominated the season thus far and has a large points lead.

However, 2008 Christmas Special winner Ray Sand, Jr. has returned to action of late and hasn’t seemed to have lost anything in the time off. Sand, Jr. is the current Track Record holder at Bracket Hill Raceway and set fast time and fastest lap of the race at the Dion Parish Memorial 62 last week at Rander Speedway.

The winner of that race, “Crazy” Chris Meyers could be the driver to watch as he’s run well so far in the month of December.  Former winners Steve Callahan and Bob Gangwer are expected to compete, while defending race winner Gary Waldron has yet to be seen on the track in the 2014-2015 Gold Crest Wing Championship Season.

The Christmas Special will feature a full format including time trials, Fast 4 Reindeer Dash and Heat Races, then conclude with the short 25 lap sprint to the checkered flag in the feature race at Bracket Hill Raceway*.

As in years past, the winner of the race will receive a Christmas Ham shipped to their home from Burgers’ Smokehouse just in time for Christmas dinner.
