Wing Side Up Twins at Bristol are Twice as Nice

Goshen, IN – November 28, 2016…The Wing Side Up Twin 25s for the Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS), is a double dip of daring challenges and thrills for supermodified sim racers willing to brave the big banks of Bristol Motor Speedway.

For the 13th year Bob Gangwer’s Wing Side Up on the World Wide Web will sponsor the night of supermodified sim racing action. This year marks the second season that the drivers will use their rFactor supermodifieds.

The event, which has heat race and two 25 lap features has become a favorite of SUPRS racers as they test their nerves and skill while turning sub-10 second laps on a track that leaves little margin for error.

With multiple bonuses like the  SUPRS Double Down, SUPRSChallenge, and SUPRSCharger, the Wing Side Up Twin 25s provide plenty of unpredictability and tension as drivers vie for valuable Gold Crest Wing Championship points. For the Double Down, a driver can double his feature finish points if he can win both features.

With the SUPRSChallenge, the driver that starts last in each feature can claim 20 bonus points if he can make it to the front to win. The SUPRSCharger award is good for 10 bonus points to the driver that advances the most places from his feature starting spot.

While all of those may seem somewhat easy, the Double Down has only been claimed twice and the SUPRSChallenge has never been claimed at this event. Doug Heveron and John Davidson are the only drivers to have won both features on the same night. Heveron doing it in 2007 and Davidson in 2012.

Adding to the challenge of racing at Bristol, the first race includes time trials and heat to set the feature starting field while the second feature is a complete inversion of the first feature’s finish.

The SUPRS racers are ready to double the action and double the fun on the big banks of Bristol Motor Speedway Tuesday November 29, 2016. Official practice starts at 8pm with the Driver’s Meeting at 8:30pm. The drivers will take to the track for Time Trials at 8:45 and the racing is set to go begin at 9pm.

Supermodified and online sim racing fans and friends can savor the action and view timing and scoring of every SUPRS rFactor race in an instant, including the 13th Annual Wing Side Up Twin 25s via the SUPRS LIVE! page.

Supermodified fan for over 30 years. Heard about this MOD and had to give it try! Been doing graphic art and design for along time. Owner of Breezegraphics Supermodified Art. Specializing in Vinyl Stickers and Window Clings. So designing my own paint scheme is right up my alley. :)

Looking to enjoy some SUPRS racing and meet some new friends. Picked #77 in honor of “The King of Supermodifieds” Bentley Warren. I’ll never forget that ragged old car (former swift 10pins) he used to muscle around The Steel Palace in the 70’s.
