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 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.

Twin 35s, Double Points Highlight SUPRS Mid-Season Championship

June 27, 2016 – Goshen, IN…The Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS), is already at the halfway point of the Gold Crest Non-Wing Championship Season and the SUPRS racers are now setting their sights on a Mid-Season Championship Crown.

SUPRS 2016 Non-wing supermodified sim racing mid-season championship poster

BreezeGraphics.com doubles the promotional power of your events with posters like this!

With a full slate of action featuring time trials, heats, Twin 35 lap features and double points as well as bonus points for the driver crowned Mid-Season Champion, and SUPRSCharger for both features, the action is sure to be intense at Oswego Speedway on Tuesday, June 28..

This season SUPRS will  crown their Mid-Season Champion with Twin 35 lap feature races at Oswego Speedway in a format identical to the Gold Crest Wing Season where the top eight finishers of the first feature will be eligible for the handicap of the second, and consistency over the course of all the night’s events will pay huge rewards.

Current SUPRS Gold Crest Non-Wing Championship point leader and defending Gold Crest Non-Wing Champion, Rob Warren has had a fantastic first half of the season. Warren has taken his 1st to Finish Racing roadster to two wins and hasn’t been off the podium except for last week in the race his company sponsored. A rare instance found him crashed against the turn 3 foam after contact with Kevin Timmins. The incident dropped him to eighth place, but he was able to keep up his points lead when nearest challenger Bob Gangwer finished just two spots better.

SUPRS 2015 Non-Wing Mid-Season Championship top 3 first feature

Steve Callahan picked up the win in the first Twin 35 of the Mid-Season Championship.

Defending SUPRS Gold Crest Non-Wing Mid-Season Champion Steve Callahan has been a “Steady” top five finisher, and is now tied for third place in the points after a great run last week in the 1st to Finish Race Servers “IrRegular 45.” He will now try to improve upon his best season finish thus far which was a third at the Jim Shampine Memorial as he attempts to defend his Mid-Season Championship crown and advance in the standings.

The driver suddenly on the move is Keith Powell of Carrollton, OH. Powell has steadily improved his finishing position to a current season high of second last week, and is now in second place in the points. The quick 35 lap races could hurt him though as his set-up takes a while to come in and he won’t have the luxury to wait on Tuesday night.

The 2014 Non-Wing Mid-Season Champion, Domenic Gioia has worked hard to get comfortable in his new racing rig and his effort was clear last week when placed third. His points handicap should put him near the front in a qualifying heat race and that could be his best asset in his quest to become a two-time Non-Wing Mid-Season Champion.

Domenic Gioia crosses stripe for Mid-Season win at Oswego Speedway

Domenic Gioia held off a hard charging Myles Maxon to take the win in the SUPRS Mid-Season Championship at Oswego Speedway.

All of these drivers will have to be wary of the hard charging, perennial SUPRS Champion, Ray Sand, Jr. “The Sandman” has not had a great season so far showing three DNF in the stats, but with a  win last week and a total of seven Mid-Season Championships, (counting the Gold Crest Wing season as well), he is considered the favorite to grab the double points for winning as well as the bonus points for being crowned Mid-Season Champion.

If Sand, Jr. is able to pull off his third Non-Wing Mid-Season Championship, he would become the first SUPRS racer to do so. Sand, Jr. is tied with John Davidson (2006, 2010 Non-Wing Mid-Season Champion), and Kris Heveron ( 2007-08 Non-Wing Mid-Season Champion), for most wins in this important event. Jim Crannell (2005), Devin Gee (2009), and Domenic Gioia (2014), are the only other racers to have scored Mid-Season Championships for the Non-Wing season. There was no race held in 2013.

“The Rabbit” Joe Achzet is still looking to put a check mark in the win column this season and even though still out of the top five in points, has shown moments of great speed and seems to have a car that is especially good in short runs like this week’s races.

Achzet is one of the drivers hanging out between third to eighth in the standings with the most to gain, or lose, on Tuesday night. Those drivers are separated by just 104 points total and includes the 2016 Port City Kick-Off winner Clinton Cyr.

Potential spoilers could be 2010 SUPRS Silver Crest Non-Wing Champion Derrick Backus and current Icings on Top Rookie of the Year points leader Kyle Clark. The two have consistently improved each week and as part of the three-member, (along with Chad Phelps), Disturbed Motorsports team, they have been able to share set-up information which has helped them each time they have raced.

The SUPRS 12th Non-Wing supermodified sim racing  season continues on June 28 with the running of the Mid-Season Championship at Oswego Speedway. Official Practice starts at 8:00 pm with the green flag dropping for racing action at 9:00 pm.
