100 Laps, Double Points Highlight Mid-Season Championship

Extra Distance Could Benefit Drivers Trying to Catch Rob Warren

July 7, 2017 – Goshen, IN…The Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS) Mid-Season Championship for non-wing supermodified sim racing is coming on Tuesday July 11, 2017. The race that features a big 100 lap feature paying double points is just the ticket that some drivers need if they want to catch series points leader Rob Warren.

Comfortable Point Lead for Warren

Warren took a big jump in the Gold Crest Non-Wing Supermodified Championship standings last week when he won swept the Independence Day Twin 25s. In so doing, he became just the third driver in SUPRS history to claim the DoubleDown bonus. That bonus rewards a driver that wins both features in a night with double points on the second feature.

Until he did that, Warren, the 2015 Gold Crest Non-Wing Supermodified Champion, had a narrow lead over 2016 Gold Crest Non-Wing Supermodified Champion Keith Powell. Powell, with two wins, looked to be the early favorite in the championship. But now it seems that Warren is the one everyone is chasing for the second half of the season.

Go Time for Everyone Else

Extra points, bonuses, and special points for being deemed Mid-Season Champion, mean this is the race that the SUPRS drivers look forward to as they try to make some major championship moves. This year, it’s guys like Powell, his teammate Steve Callahan, Domenic Gioia and Kyle Clark that are looking to use this race to stay in the hunt.

Gioia has gotten off to the best season start of his career by finishing on the podium three times in the first six races. Not be overlooked is the fact that Gioia won the Mid-Season Championship in 2014 and comes into the show solidly in the top five of the points.

Callahan Hoping to Avoid Calamity

Of all the other drivers mentioned so far, only Callahan joins Gioia as a former Mid-Season Champion. In fact he is the two-time and defending SUPRS Gold Crest Non-Wing Supermodified Champion. He’s also the only driver other than Warren and Powell to pull down a win so far this year. Callahan is also on the élite list of drivers that have more than one Mid-Season Championship crown with two. He’s the only driver competing that could claim a third. The only issue is, Callahan took a big hit last week when he couldn’t race which caused him to drop out of the top five, so he’ll be anxious to have a good run.

Will the Cobra Strike?

Kyle “The Cobra” Clark has steadily moved his way into the top five of the points. Week in and week out he has knocked on the door for his first feature win at Oswego Speedway. If he can slither away from the bad luck that seems to jump up and bite him in the long distance races, he could very well become a real contender for the championship.

SUPRS Bounty Adds to Warren’s Worries at Mid-Season Championship

Mid-Season Championship at Oswego Speedway Tuesday, SUPRS Bounty on Rob Warren

January 20, 2017 – Goshen, IN…The Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS), will run its Mid-Season Championship for the Gold Crest Wing Championship XIII on Tuesday January 27, 2017 and double points, multiple bonuses, and a SUPRS Bounty on the current point leader leader Rob Warren’s head, could lead to a big shake-up in the point standings.

SUPRS 2017 Mid-Season Championship poster

SUPRS depends on BreezeGraphics.com to get the word out with awesome posters like this.

The SUPRS Mid-Season Championship has plenty of racing in store for the supermodified sim racers and every time they hit the track they will have a chance to gain valuable points that add up toward the overall Mid-Season Championship.

Points from Time Trials, Heat Races, and double points for the Twin 35 lap features all add up and whoever has the best tally will be crowned SUPRS Mid-Season Champion and grab the 10 bonus points that go with the title.

Learn About the SUPRS Points System

Extra bonus points are up for grabs as well. The SUPRSCharger pays 10 points to the driver that advances the most places from his starting spot and the SUPRS Challenge awards a 10 point bonus to any driver that can win the feature from the last starting place.

While the focus will certainly be on winning the Mid-Season Championship, the racers will also be looking for a big points score in the ongoing Empire State Super Series Regional Tour of which this event is part of. Just last week Rob Warren won the opening round of the ESS season at Akron International Speedway.

Wanted: Rob Warren – A.K.A “Rocket”

With five feature wins in a row dating back to December 13, 2016, Rob Warren has become a wanted man. He is now one of a select few SUPRS drivers that has had to run from the bounty hunters.

The first driver to beat Warren will collect the SUPRS Bounty and will “take” ten points from Warren’s SUPRS Gold Crest Wing Championship total.

If Warren can keep the streak alive, he will get five championship points added to his total for the night and the bounty will increase by five points up to a total of 25 points for the bounty hunters.

“Rocket” Rob Warren is never one to shy away from a battle and with his history at Oswego Speedway, the bounty hunters will have their work cut out for them.

As a former SUPRS Gold Crest Wing Mid-Season Champion,(2011-12), the Pulaski, NY driver also has a big edge over all other current competitors when it comes to sitting in victory lane at Oswego Speedway.

Even though Warren has plenty of major victories in both wing and non-wing online supermodified races, (including the 2016 Topless! 200), and has 141 points on his nearest contender in the points battle, Keith Powell, when asked recently if he was nervous about losing the points to a bounty hunter he said, “And now a bounty. Nervous? Yeah, I’m wicked nervous.”

If Warren does win the Mid-Season Championship for the winged supermodifieds, he would become the fifth driver in SUPRS history to claim more than one and would join John Davidson, Myles Maxon, Bob Gangwer, and Ray Sand, Jr. who is the all-time Mid-Season Championship winner with four wing and two non-wing and is the defending Mid-Season champ.

Keep an Eye on the Action

It’s not just the middle of the season, but with all of these extra points on the line, it’s a make or break moment for many of the drivers in the points chase and you can be a part of all the drama and intrigue via SUPRS LIVE! on race night.  Keep up with your favorite SUPRS racer in an instant by visiting www.SUPRS.net/site/live.
