October 22, 2017 – Goshen, IN… After a successful week of racing in North Carolina, the Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS), is moving a little further south for The Black Kat Klassic on October 24 at Myrtle Beach Speedway.
Different Venue-Same Thrills Expected
After many years at Decatur Speedway in Illinois, the race moved to Red Ball Raceway in Kentucky last year. Now, for the second time in as many years, the SUPRS racers will find themselves faced with the challenges of another new venue in Myrtle Beach Speedway.
Early test sessions show that this race track should prove to be just as unpredictable and nerve-wracking as Red Ball was last year. The track has several pronounced bumps that act to upset the high-powered supermodifieds, yet there are also many good passing zones on the half-mile in Myrtle Beach.
Powell on the Prowl
Defending Black Kat Klassic winner Keith Powell, who sits third in SUPRS Gold Crest Division Wing Supermodified Championship points , hopes to join Ray Sand, Jr., Myles Maxon, John Davidson and Carl Becker, as a multi-time Black Kat Klassic winner. Powell is also on the prowl for his first feature win of the season, having finished in the top three just twice so far in six races.
2006 winner Steve Callahan, and 2015 victor Rob Warren, are also on the list of potential multi-time Black Kat Klassic winners. Callahan led a good part of the recent Hickory Hustle only to be blocked out of victory lane and a second North Carolina Swing Championship by winner Rob Warren.
The brave SUPRS daredevils take on The Black Kat Klassic October 24, 2017 at the 1/2 mile Myrtle Beach Speedway. Practice starts at 8:15pm. Time Trials follow at 8:45pm and hair-raising racing gets under way with a special Crack the Whip race for the Elite 8 qualifiers at 9:00pm.
