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.

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.

1st to Finish IrReguLaR 45 Has Throwback Format

SUPRS Goes Old School with 1st to Finish Race Servers “IrReGuLaR 45”

Goshen, IN June 17, 2017…This week the Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS), goes back to the roots of supermodified racing at Oswego Speedway with the 1st to Finish Race Servers “IrReGuLaR 45.”

S2017 1st to Finish IrReGuLaR 45 poster

There’s nothing wrong with being “IrReGuLaR” when promoting your product or event with posters and flyers from BreezeGraphics.com

This supermodified sim racing race is a throwback to the greatest days of racing at the Oswego Speedway. Oswego is known around the world as “The Home of the Supermodifieds,” Until the 1990s, a driver had to work his way through a heat, a semi-feature and sometimes a consolation race. And all that racing was just to make the feature!

If he had a high handicap, a driver would have to start deep in the field of each race. Watching drivers race through the pack to make the transfer, always made for a thrilling show. With large weekly car counts, making the starting field of 24 supermodifieds took a lot of skill and a fair amount of luck.

In 2012 SUPRS member Rob Warren suggested that qualifying format as a way to pay homage to the good old days. His idea was quickly adapted for one race a year by SUPRS officials.

“I remember being a kid at Oswego Speedway,” began Warren. “Back then a driver really had to work his tail off to make the feature.”  Warren remembers nights were even the acknowledged “greats” of supermodified racing struggled. “There were some nights when the greats like Bellinger, Shampine, Gioia and Ciprich had a hard time getting out of their heats.”

“I thought it would be cool to try something along those lines for SUPRS,” he continued. “For people who remember how it used to be at “The Big O,” the race brings back some fond memories like mine.

“For people who have never been there or seen a real supermodified show, we can help teach them about what made Oswego Speedway one of the greatest short tracks in the country,” Warren explained.

To his credit, Warren has sponsored the race that was his idea from the beginning. “It was my idea so I thought I should put some money where my mouth is and sponsor the race,” he mused. “I thought we’d call it “IrReGuLaR” because neither Oswego or SUPRS runs a show that way anymore. Plus it just sounded fun!”

Only One Repeat Winner

Until last year, there had never been a repeat winner of the race . Ray Sand, Jr. broke that record when he made a daring pass under leader Keith Powell on a restart with just three laps left. Sand, Jr. also won the first one, while Domenic Gioia brought home the win in 2013. Like Sand, Jr. in 2016,  Joe Achzet won a thriller in 2015 also with a pass late in the race. 2014 is the only year the race hasn’t been run.

Don’t miss the 1st to Finish Race Servers “IrReGuLaR 45”  on Tuesday June 27, 2017. The SUPRS Race Server will open at 7pm for Systems Checks, with Official Practice starting at 8pm.  The driver’s meeting takes place at 8:30pm and the first heat race starts at 9pm.
