As has been the case for the previous 12 years, the original online sim supermodified sim racing sanction will start it’s  2016-17 Gold Crest Wing Supermodified Sim Racing schedule at this fictional and tight 3/8th mile track located in Northern Indiana and will use the NASCAR Heat sim racing platform to do so.

To say winning a feature race at LaPorte is tough would be an understatement since the first Harvest of Speed was run in 2004, just five drivers have ever won it.

Defending SUPRS Gold Crest Wing Champion, Ray Sand, Jr., won the race last year and has a total of six feature wins at LaPorte including the 2011 and 2013 Harvest of Speed races.

Only Myles Maxon and John Davidson have more total wins at LaPorte and Maxon’s four Harvest of Speed victories at LaPorte make up the bulk of his seven total wins here . Three of those wins came in a row from 2007-2009. Davidson’s chalked up an incredible run of eight straight checkered flags at LaPorte from February 2005 to April 2006, with one of those being the very first Harvest of Speed.

Sean O’Kane (2006), Gary Waldron (2010), and Chris Meyers (2012) are the only other drivers to have won the Harvest of Speed. Steve Callahan, Jim Crannell, Josh Crannell, Doug Heveron, and Jesse Kennedy have also etched their names into the SUPRS record book as one-time LaPorte Speedway race winners, although none of them brought in the Harvest.

This year’s Harvest of Speed will again be a part of the Indyana Supermod Challenge, a multi-race, season-long mini-series that also includes races at Indianapolis Raceway Park.

With all the marks in the win column at LaPorte Speedway it should come as no surprise that Maxon and Sand, Jr. also have the most Indyana Supermod Challenge Championships with Maxon having six and Sand, Jr. three. Steve Callahan is the defending ISC Champion.

The overall Indyana Supermod Challenge Champion will be awarded 10 SUPRS Gold Crest Wing Championship points and receive a five-pound bag of  Yoder’s award-winning Indiana popcorn.

Practice for the 13th Annual Harvest of Speed begins at 8:00pm, with the Drivers Meeting taking place at 8:15. Time Trials follow at 8:30pm and racing is set to start at 9:00pm.

SUPRS Heroes Unite for 2016 Mr. Online Supermodified

Mr. Online Supermodified Sim Racing Event is Battle Royale

Goshen, IN – July 30, 2016…The Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS), 9th Mr. Online Supermodified sim race will see all the SUPRS heroes in a battle royale at Oswego Speedway to decide which deserves to be named Mr. Online Supermodified on August 2, 2016.

Have no fear, BreezeGraphics.com is here for your promotional needs.

To win the coveted 9th Annual Mr. Online Supermodified Cup sponsored by 1st to Finish Race Servers, a driver will need to be able to leap past their fellow SUPRS racers as fast as speeding bullet and use all their “super powers” throughout the  event using their non-wing rFactor supermodifieds as their weapon.

Points will be kept for time trials, heat races, and the 75 lap feature race to decide who will be the 9th Annual Mr. Online Supermodified.

Mr. Online Supermodified History

Kris Heveron of Jensen Beach, FL won the first two Mr. Online Supermodified races and at that time in 2008 and 2009, they were 100 lap affairs with a 25 lap shootout.

Last year, current SUPRS Gold Crest Non-Wing Champion “Rocket” Rob Warren became Mr. Online Supermodified for the second time in his career, his first win came in 2011, and with three wins already this season becoming the first three-time winner of the race will help him fend off the challengers he’s faced lately that threaten to throw him off the SUPRS Championship throne.

Another former Mr. Online Supermodified, Keith Powell, (2010 winner), has battled his way into the SUPRS point lead and has become Warren’s Kryptonite and closest challenger in the Championship. “Put One on Ya” Powell is confident he can continue his charge and recently stated, “These longer races really play into my hands because I can take care of my tires and the car.”

Powell’s teammate “Steady” Steve Callahan has never been Mr. Online Supermodified, but will use this event to try to power his way back to the top after being knocked to third in the standings just one race ago.

Bob Gangwer is the only driver other than Heveron to win the race back to back, doing so in 2012 and 2013. Vilified by some, considered a dictator by others, and misunderstood by most, Gangwer is looking for the elixir that will give him extreme boost for a run into victory lane. A recent secret acquisition of a rebuilt G27 could be the potent potion that puts “Bobby G.” on top.

In 2014, Ray Sand, Jr., battled “Mighty” Myles Maxon to claim his first Mr. Online Supermodified but has not been as strong as of late. Could the “The Sandman” stop his downward slide and return to his former glory and rightful place of Mr. Online Supermodified this year?

With a host of other SUPRSHeroes like “The X Man”, “The Cobra”, “Attaboy”, “The Dominator”, “D-Rock”, and “The Breeze”, this race could be one of epic proportions!
