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.

Blind Date Night Kicks off Empire State Super Series

2016-17 Empire State Super Series Tour Blind Date Night Supermodified Sim Race This Week

January 15, 2017 – Goshen, IN…The Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS), Empire State Super Series Regional Tour begins on Tuesday January 17 with Blind Date Night.

SUPRS 2017 ESS Blind Date Night Poster

We’ve never met an event poster we didn’t like when BreezeGraphics.com sets up the blind date!

The Empire State Super Series, (ESS), is composed of anywhere between three to six races and run over the course of one year and two SUPRS Gold Crest Seasons. The tour includes only those tracks that are in the state of New York.

The SUPRS Blind Date Night has been a tradition since the very start of the sanction when it ran four races in one night on New Year’s Eve known as the New Year’s Eve 4-n-1 Bash.

After the SUPRS Members decided they’d rather spend time with their family and friends on NYE, the tradition of drawing one out of a potential three tracks continued on for the ESS Tour.

Now with SUPRS running rFactor and NASCAR Heat, a new option opened up where the race could be run using either sim racing platform! 

Rob Warren, who has run very well in his home state of NY in the past, is on a string of four wins in a row and is just coming from a huge win at the 9th Annual Terry Gibson Memorial 100.

If he wins this week, a SUPRS Bounty will be placed on the current point leader’s head where some of those championship points could be lost to the driver the ends his winning streak. With Keith Powell and Joe Achzet chomping at his rear tires in the SUPRS Gold Crest Wing Championship XIII, you can bet he won’t slow down, so keep an eye on the driver of the #35 First to Finish Race Servers ride.

Powell and Achzet have been swapping second and third place in the standings back and forth at nearly every race, yet it’s uncertain how they will fair on Blind Date Night.

ESS Format

Both have completely different styles of driving with Powell being the smooth, calm and calculating racer, while Joe “The Rabbit” Achzet lives up to his nickname every time he’s on the track and is always hammer down from the drop of the green flag.

In addition, neither has competed regularly on ANY of the ESS tracks that could be drawn, or has run many NASCAR Heat races in the last five years, so they may be struggling to keep their championship hopes alive.

2013-14 Empire State Super Series Champion Steve Callahan has just one win this season, but usually starts to pick up momentum around this part of the season. if his fourth place run at the Terry Gibson Memorial last week is any indication he may be on target to pick up his second checkered flag of the season.

Callahan is joined by defending ESS Champion Bob Gangwer as the only other former champion expected to compete. Both are in the top five in points and always run well in New York.

Practice gets under way at 8:00pm with Time Trials at 8:30pm and Racing at 9:00pm.
