Independence Day Twins Oldest Non-Wing Supermodified Sim Race

Independence Day Twin 35s a Tradition of Action and Excitement

June 30, 2017 – Goshen, IN…When it comes to the oldest event on the Supermodified Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS), Gold Crest Non-Wing Championship calendar, nothing can hold a firecracker to the Independence Day Twins.

The very first points race for the SUPRS Gold Crest Non-Wing Supermodified Championship came on July 6, 2005 with the running of the Independence Day Twin 25s. That makes this event the oldest for non-wing supermodified sim racing. Californian John Davidson and Canadian Sean Gibbs won those races at Jennerstown Speedway.

Jennerstown Speedway hosted the race two other times after that. Then beginning in 2008 the race moved to the newly designed Oswego Speedway. It’s been held there since except for 2011 when it ran at Bristol Motor Speedway.

The format has changed from Twin 25 lap features the first year to Twin 40s and even Twin 45 lappers. However, since 2010, Twin 35 lap contests have been the norm. All of those versions used the NASCAR Heat sim racing gaming platform.  But beginning last year the Independence Day Twins moved to the rFactor platform.

Plenty of Records and Excitement

Excitement, thrills, and record-setting moments have been commonplace throughout the history of this event. In just the second year of the event, SUPRS set the bar high with the first live broadcast of a non-wing supermodified sim racing event. ECT Radio partnered with SUPRS and Kris Heveron won the first of four Independence Day features. Then to the surprise of the radio audience, Gary Waldron won the second feature of the night.

Heveron won at least one of the Twin features starting in 2006. He tallied an impressive two-year run of four total wins. He was also the first driver in SUPRS history to claim the DoubleDown bonus when he swept both features in 2007.

With the lineups based on the SUPRS “Points Won Handicap System,” and drivers hungry for a win, the racing is never lacking in the thrills department. Often unpredictable and always interesting, the Independence Day Twins never disappoints.
