November 12, 2016 – Goshen, IN…The Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS), 12th Annual Turkey Shoot takes place this Tuesday November 15 at Memphis Motorsports Park.
The winner of the race receives a Burgers’ Smokehouse turkey, delivered to the doorstep in time to enjoy it with the family for Thanksgiving dinner.
For the first three years of the Turkey Shoot it was held at the big 3/4 mile track and varied in length from 63-40 laps. John Davidson won the very first show in 2005 with Chris Meyers picking up one of his first SUPRS feature wins in 2006. Florida’s Kris Heveron was the winner in 2007 in a 17 car field.
2008 saw a move to Tri-Park Speedway where the race stayed for the next six years. Ray Sand, Jr. won that first Tri-Park show then did it again the next year to become the first back-to-back winner.
In 2010-11 Dave Biro III duplicated Sand, Jr.’s feat before Rob Warren took home the Burgers’ Smokehouse Turkey in 2012 and donated it to injured supermodified racer Jeff Russell.
Joey Callahan not only claimed his first Turkey Shoot in 2013 at Tri-Park, but also won his first ever SUPRS feature. Carl Becker was the winner in 2014 and both drivers capitalized on their starting position which is set by the six lap Turkey Trot qualifying race for the Elite 8 of Time Trials.
Last year the race moved back to Memphis and used the SUPRS non-wing rFactor mod. After the start was called back, the 2015 race went green to checkered with great battles throughout. Ray Sand, Jr. won his third Burgers’ Smokehouse turkey and donated to fellow SUPRS racer Myles Maxon who had recently lost his grandmother.
Practice for the SUPRS 12th Annual Turkey Shoot at Memphis Motorsports Park begins at 8:00pm. The Fast 4 qualifiers will take the first racing green flag of the night at 9:00pm with the six lap Turkey Trot to set the first two rows of the 40 lap main event.
