13th Year of SUPRS Supermodified Sim Racing Begins Where SUPRS Started

As has been the case for the previous 12 years, the original online sim supermodified sim racing sanction will start it’s  2016-17 Gold Crest Wing Supermodified Sim Racing schedule at this fictional and tight 3/8th mile track located in Northern Indiana and will use the NASCAR Heat sim racing platform to do so.

To say winning a feature race at LaPorte is tough would be an understatement since the first Harvest of Speed was run in 2004, just five drivers have ever won it.

Defending SUPRS Gold Crest Wing Champion, Ray Sand, Jr., won the race last year and has a total of six feature wins at LaPorte including the 2011 and 2013 Harvest of Speed races.

Only Myles Maxon and John Davidson have more total wins at LaPorte and Maxon’s four Harvest of Speed victories at LaPorte make up the bulk of his seven total wins here . Three of those wins came in a row from 2007-2009. Davidson’s chalked up an incredible run of eight straight checkered flags at LaPorte from February 2005 to April 2006, with one of those being the very first Harvest of Speed.

Sean O’Kane (2006), Gary Waldron (2010), and Chris Meyers (2012) are the only other drivers to have won the Harvest of Speed. Steve Callahan, Jim Crannell, Josh Crannell, Doug Heveron, and Jesse Kennedy have also etched their names into the SUPRS record book as one-time LaPorte Speedway race winners, although none of them brought in the Harvest.

This year’s Harvest of Speed will again be a part of the Indyana Supermod Challenge, a multi-race, season-long mini-series that also includes races at Indianapolis Raceway Park.

With all the marks in the win column at LaPorte Speedway it should come as no surprise that Maxon and Sand, Jr. also have the most Indyana Supermod Challenge Championships with Maxon having six and Sand, Jr. three. Steve Callahan is the defending ISC Champion.

The overall Indyana Supermod Challenge Champion will be awarded 10 SUPRS Gold Crest Wing Championship points and receive a five-pound bag of  Yoder’s award-winning Indiana popcorn.

Practice for the 13th Annual Harvest of Speed begins at 8:00pm, with the Drivers Meeting taking place at 8:15. Time Trials follow at 8:30pm and racing is set to start at 9:00pm.

Dion Parish Memorial Coming this Week

Dion Parish Memorial Filled with Prestige for Sim Racing League

December 8, 2014 – Goshen, IN…The Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS), racers will be back in action this week with their NASCAR Heat winged sim supermodifieds for the 12th Annual Dion Parish Memorial on December 8, 2015 at Rander Speedway.

SUPRS 12th Annual Dion Parish Memorial supermodified sim race poster

When it comes to representing important moments with great graphics, we trust BreezeGraphics.com and so should you.

This race honors the late Dion Parish. Dion was a supermodified racer that lost his life in a testing accident at Kalamazoo Speedway in 2002 while preparing for a late season event at Sandusky Speedway.  His dedication to the supermodified division and “Never Give Up” attitude was the inspiration for the founding of the SUPRS league and is a constant reminder to all members that there are more important things in life than winning sim races.

In the 12 year history of the race there are just two SUPRS racers that have more than one win and they are six-time Gold Crest Wing Supermodified Series champion Ray Sand, Jr. of Rochester, NY and defending Dion Parish Memorial champion Chris Meyers.

Sand, Jr. is the only three-time winner with his first Dion Parish Memorial win coming in 2006. Then, in 2007, Sand, Jr. used the win to propel him to his first SUPRS Championship and has since become the most winning driver in series history. Sand, Jr. last won the race in 2013 and after running second in the 2014 edition comes into this year’s race with the SUPRS Gold Crest Wing Championship point lead and favored to win.

Last year, three former race champions and Myles Maxon made for an exciting 62 laps at Rander Speedway and when it was all said and done, it all came11-suprs_dion_parish_memorial_120914_L57_top4_pack_T2 down to lapped traffic and gutsy moves with Chris Meyers claiming his second Dion Parish Memorial for the Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series. It’s unlikely that Meyers will attempt to defend his championship due to other commitments.

2011 winner “Steady” Steve Callahan had a great run last year, coming home in third for the second year in a row. Callahan led the first 57 laps of the race but was the one driver that didn’t come out on top in the race ending battle with lapped cars. Callahan is expected to compete for the win once again this year.

So far this season, Rob Warren has been the real thorn in Sand, Jr.’s side chalking up four wins which is just one short of what Sand, Jr. has right now. That may change with Sand, Jr. seeming to excel even more in the SUPRS NASCAR Heat V6 mod, where Warren seems to be better with the SUPRS rFactor NW V1 car. In Warren’s own words, “We’re headed back to NASCAR Heat for a while, so challenging Ray for the championship just got a little harder.”

For the second week in a row the SUPRSCharger and SUPRSChallenge bonuses will be up for grabs with the potential of 3o bonus points.

Action for the SUPRS racers begins at Rander Speedway December 7, 2015  with practice which starts at 8:00pm. Time Trials are at 8:30pm and Racing gets underway with the call to the green flag Dion’s daughters Mindy and Lindsey at 9:00pm. Full details can be found on the SUPRS schedule page
