Christmas Time, Break Time for SUPRS

The Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS), believes that Christmas time is a great time to take a break from supermodified sim racing. It’s a special time of year, and one where we can show others that, while our virtual family is important, our real families should be the focus of the season. So we’re putting supermodified sim racing on hold for a couple of weeks.

SUPRS Merry Christmas social 2015

We’re Taking a Break, So Should You

We want to remind all of our SUPRS Members, fans, friends, and family that our annual 2-week Christmas Break begins at the close of business on December 15, 2017 and lasts until Monday January 1, 2018. We feel this time away from sim racing is important and hope that our members have plenty of time to travel and spend time with family.

Since the beginning of SUPRS in 2004, we have stressed the importance of family and we believe that focusing on that is more important than #simracing. and it’s what sets us apart from other leagues or sanctions. SUPRS urges all of members, friends, fans, & followers to take this time to disconnect from racing on the web, put down their cell phones, and shut off the internet to focus on the important things in life.

Join Forms

Interested sim racers can still send their Membership Join Forms, but we want everyone to be aware that they won’t be processed until we are back in the office after the New Year on January 2, 2018.

General Emails and Press Releases

We will continue to watch our email for time sensitive press releases from supermodified sanctions, tracks, and teams to decide if any are of a time sensitive nature. General email processing is on hold until January 2, 2018.

PR representatives should contact us via our Contact Page if they have something very important that needs to go out immediately on SUPRS.net, otherwise we will consider it bulk mail and get it put up as soon as possible upon our return to business.

Going Crazy

After the first of the year, it’s time to get ready for the 14th Annual Crazy Canuck Snowball Derby at Mosport Speedway, so we’ll fire up the SUPRS Race and TeamSpeak servers at 8:00 am on January 2, 2018. SUPRS Members can plan on an extended Systems Check prior to the race beginning at 6:00pm. Race times remain the same and can be found on our Schedule Page.

Merry Christmas to All

Thank you to  all the SUPRS Members, sponsors, friends, fans, and followers that supported SUPRS in 2017. We appreciate your passion for sim racing and more importantly REAL supermodified racing.

We want to wish all of you a wonderful Christmas season filled with peace, love, health and happiness. May every joy and blessing be yours at Christmas time and throughout the New Year.

Christmas Special for SUPRS

December 10, 2017 – Goshen, IN…The Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS), tradition of ending the year with their Christmas Special continues on December 12, 2017. For the second year in a row the race takes place at a new venue and for the first time, it’s part of the Empire State Super Series tour.

First Time at Airborne

Airborne Speedway is the site of the action on Tuesday and is the first time that SUPRS has raced at this Plattsburgh, NY track. Airborne hosted the International Supermodified Association several times, so it’s not so unusual to be racing virtual supermodifieds there. Also, because it’s a New York track, this race kicks off the 2017-18 Empire State Super Series and is the first of an expanded five race schedule for the regional tour championship.

Tricky and Technical

Getting around Airborne Speedway smoothly has proven to be a challenge for the SUPRS racers during pre-race testing. With flat, tight corners that cap the drag strip straights, the track is certainly one of the more technical that the sim racers visit this season.

They have found that braking is just as important as mashing the throttle. If a driver wants to win, he’ll need all of his skills to negotiate the tricky turns using precise braking, steering, and throttle control throughout the quick 25 lap sprint.

On Dancer, On Prancer

The six lap Reindeer Dash sets the starting positions for the Fast 4 qualifiers based on their finish.

Everyone else will go to heat races to be lined up based on their season won points handicaps. The way they finish the heat race is the way they will start the 25 lap feature behind the Reindeer Dash drivers.

Christmas Gift for Winner

Whomever takes the checkered flag first on Tuesday, he’ll take home a Burgers’ Smokehouse Christmas Ham for his accomplishment.

Burgers' Smokehouse hamThe fine folks at Burgers’ Ozark Country Hams have been providing simple traditions since 1952 when they built their first “ham house” on their farm in Missouri.

With complete attention to quality and customer service, this family owned company continues to do things the old-fashioned way taking great care in the time-honored traditions of curing, aging, and smoking superior quality products.

Christmas Countdown

The SUPRS Christmas Special takes place December 12, 2017 beginning with practice which starts at 8:15pm. Qualifying follows at 8:45pm and Racing gets underway at 9:00pm with the Reindeer Dash.
