Black Kat Klassic Moves to Myrtle Beach

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.

Groundhog Day Derby Format Fine for Phil, Headscratcher for Racers

Punxsutawney Phil Predictions Leave SUPRS Racers Scratching Head over Groundhog Day Derby Format

January 29, 2017 – Goshen, IN…The Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS), Groundhog Day Derby format is decided by the world’s most famous groundhog Punxsutawney Phil, which sometimes proves to be a real head scratching experience for the supermodified sim racers at SUPRS.

There’s nothing unpredictable about the quality of work from BreezeGraphics.com

While Phil and his Groundhog Club Inner Circle at Gobbler’s Knob may not know it, his yearly prognostication determines whether it will be a regular format with time trials, heats and the feature, or a random start. This can prove to be just as vexing to the SUPRS racers as predicting what the weather will do.

Letting Punxsutawney Phil decide the format for the night may sound a bit odd but SUPRS has done it that way for this race since Bud Flath won the first one in 2005. Since then, there has been just one repeat winner.

With the SUPRS Gold Crest Wing Championship XIII as hot as ever after last week’s Mid-Season Championship, many of the drivers are hoping that an early spring is predicted which means a full format of Time Trials, Heats and Feature. That also means more chances to score valuable points.

If the famous groundhog from Pennsylvania sees his shadow and determines that we are in for six more weeks of winter, there will be no time trials or heats and the lineup for the 50 lap feature is set by a random draw. 

The fun and unpredictable Groundhog Day Derby begins on February 2, 2016 with the cars taking to Myrtle Beach Speedway for the first time in SUPRS history at 8:00pm for practice. Depending on whether Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow, Time Trials could start at 8:30pm. Regardless of an early spring or six more weeks of winter SUPRS racing is always at 9:00pm.
