Goshen, IN – March 18, 2016…The Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS), will be racing at the online version of Jack Arute’s Stafford Motor Speedway Tuesday March 22, 2016.
This race is the 34th of the season and will mark the seventh straight year that SUPRS has raced at this venue since being completed in December of 2009. This particular race is modeled after, and named for, one that ran at Stafford for several years and featured the International Supermodified Association along with the New England Midget Association.
Steve Callahan of Cuyahoga Falls, OH excels at this track and is easily the online king of Stafford Motor Speedway. He’s won four of the six SUPRS races contested so far at Stafford Motor Speedway, taking his first two back to back in 2010-2011, then doing the same in 2014 and 2015.
When he won in 2014, it marked the fifth SUPRS win in a row for Callahan that season and he had a ‘bounty’ placed on his head. Then in 2015, while he was embroiled in an intense points battle with Myles Maxon and Rob Warren, he kept his hopes of winning his first SUPRS Championship alive.
This season, “Steady” Steve only has one thought on his mind, getting his first feature win of the season as he has yet to put his Exide Battery sponsored machine in victory lane.
“This year has been a very frustrating one,” began Callahan. “We haven’t been running very good and have had nothing but bad luck.”
The likable SUPRS racer that has over 500 feature starts went on to say, “Stafford is a place where we think we can turn the season around. This place has been very good to us in the past and we are looking forward to getting back up front and racing for the win.”
Callahan will be joined by a host of other supermodified sim racers when practice begins at 8:00pm Tuesday March 22 with the driver’s meeting to follow at 8:15pm. All of the drivers will be attempting to beat Myles Maxon’s track record of 15.095 when they take to the track at 8:30pm for time-trials. Racing will begin with qualifying heats at 9:oopm
