Three Nights, Five Tracks, One Champion, North Carolina Swing Toughest on Schedule
November 1, 2015 – Goshen, IN…The Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS), 12th Annual North Carolina Swing is rightfully considered the toughest multi-race swing on the schedule.
The three-night extravaganza of supermodified sim racing features five different tracks in three nights of racing all based in North Carolina. As the racers vie for the coveted North Carolina Swing Championship Crown they will also be racing for points in the Gold Crest Wing Supermodified Championship.
The series kicks off Tuesday, November 3rd at Dasera Speedway and Caraway Speedway, moves to Concord Motorsports Park and Coastal Plains Speedway the next night and finishes off at Hickory Motor Speedway on Thursday, November 5th where the winner of challenging “Hickory Hustle 75″ will be crowned North Carolina Swing Champion.
To date, there has been just one driver to win the North Carolina Swing Championship more than once. “Mighty” Myles Maxon. He first did it back to back in 2009 and 2010. Last year Maxon was on a hot-streak with his Tamarack Golf Club. “Swamp Monster” having won three of the first four races of the season.
Without winning a race during the Swing, he battled his way through the pack to take the lead from 2012 NC Swing Champion Carl Becker on lap 38, and then went on to win the Hickory Hustle and claim his third North Carolina Swing Championship.
The most recent winner on the SUPRS trail, Rob Warren, has swept the second night of the Swing for the last two years and will be just as much of a threat to win the overall championship again this year.
Steve Callahan has one of the best finishing records in the history of The Hickory Hustle, yet has never been able to win the race or the North Carolina Swing Championship. He had another great run last year and his third place finish was not indicative of the incredible race he ran.

With 20 bonus points on the line to the driver that can pull off this challenging feat, the SUPRS stars will be out in full force vying for an invitation to the Hickory Hustle.
The Hickory Hustle takes the top eight in points after the first four races and pits them against each other with a random start at Hickory Motor Speedway. It’s just one more reason the North Carolina Swing crown is one of the most sought after, and hardest to win, for the SUPRS drivers.
