Grab a win and win a Turkey!

The winner of the race receives a Burgers’ Smokehouse turkey, delivered to the doorstep in time to enjoy it with the family for Thanksgiving dinner.

For the first three years of the Turkey Shoot it was held at the big 3/4 mile track and varied in length from 63-40 laps. John Davidson won the very first show in 2005 with Chris Meyers picking up one of his first SUPRS feature wins in 2006. Florida’s Kris Heveron was the winner in 2007 in a 17 car field.

Nom, Nom, Nom thanks to Burgers’ Smokehouse!

2008 saw a move to Tri-Park Speedway where the race stayed for the next six years. Ray Sand, Jr. won that first Tri-Park show then did it again the next year to become the first back-to-back winner.

In 2010-11 Dave Biro III duplicated Sand, Jr.’s feat before Rob Warren took home the Burgers’ Smokehouse Turkey in 2012 and donated it to injured supermodified racer Jeff Russell.

Joey Callahan not only claimed his first Turkey Shoot in 2013 at Tri-Park, but  also won his first ever SUPRS feature. Carl Becker was the winner in 2014 and both drivers capitalized on their starting position which is set by the six lap Turkey Trot qualifying race for the Elite 8 of Time Trials.

Last year the race moved back to Memphis and used the SUPRS non-wing rFactor mod. After the start was called back, the 2015 race went green to checkered with great battles throughout. Ray Sand, Jr. won his third Burgers’ Smokehouse turkey and donated to fellow SUPRS racer Myles Maxon who had recently lost his grandmother.

Practice for the SUPRS 12th Annual Turkey Shoot at Memphis Motorsports Park begins at 8:00pm. The Fast 4 qualifiers will take the first racing green flag of the night at 9:00pm with the six lap Turkey Trot to set the first two rows of the 40 lap main event.

Christmas Special Winner Receives Burgers’ Ham

Goshen, IN – December 13, 2015…The Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS),  will end the year with the 12th Annual Christmas Special 25 at Bracket Hill Raceway in New Hampshire Tuesday December 15, 2015.

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.
