Kurkowski, Bainey Split Thrilling Super Cup Pennsylvania Doubleheader Weekend

Skyland, North Carolina (July 19, 2015) – For only the second time in 2015 the weather cooperated and allowed for some intense short track racing at a couple of Pennsylvania’s finest asphalt facilities.  The end result was a first-time Super Cup Stock Car Series winner and a rookie competitor setting the precedent as the driver to beat heading into the final races of the season.

Dan Bainey picked up where he left off two months ago at CNB Bank Raceway Park by claiming a new series track record of 19.092 seconds in qualifying at Motordrome Speedway on Friday night.  He would draw the outside pole with CNB May runner up Harvey Harrison starting from the inside.  Harrison would lead the first few circuits before Bainey would get by and set the pace for the first half of the 75 lap race.

Things would change on lap 41 when the No. 00 DelGrosso Foods / Rock & Ruthless Tattoo Parlor Ford of Bainey became noticeably ill-handling, allowing Harvey Harrison to get by for the lead.  Harrison would have a new challenger very quickly as Denver, North Carolina’s Mike Kurkowski and the Renick, West Virginia veteran would duel for the lead over the closing laps.

Bainey’s issue turned out to be a flat right rear tire; however, the way the cautions fell in the second half of the race, the rookie driver was able to march through the field and be in contention for the win.

The final laps turned out to be an all-out battle for the victory between the three drivers that came down to the wire with Kurkowski holding off Harrison and Bainey for his first career Super Cup Stock Car Series victory.

“It was a tough race,” a jubilant Kurkowski said.  “I was just biding my time running along behind Harvey there.  I saw Dan start backing up and I was thinking this is pretty cool.  Harvey started slipping and sliding.  Thought this was even cooler.  We got to race a bunch.  The restart made it interesting.  Harvey was better on cold tires; I was better on hot tires so that made it good.”

This was a different car than what Kurkowski brought to CNB back in May.  The No. 1 ShoTime Motorsports Ford he fielded at Motordrome has quite a successful history to it.

“This particular car Mardy Lindley drove for me in the Pro Cup Series in 2006, I believe,” Kurkowski recalled.  “I took it apart, redid it, and brought it back out here.  It always was a good racecar.  All day long I had been thinking that this car needs some work.  It could be faster.  I’ve got the parts in the trailer.  I just didn’t have the help today or the time.  I left at 5 a.m. to get here.”

Brent Nelson finished a solid fourth while Indiana driver Tim McLaughlin achieved a best career fifth on Friday night in his return to the series.

Saturday at CNB Bank Raceway Park in Clearfield, Pennsylvania started off noticeably with Friday’s winner surprisingly absent, leaving the window for victory wide open.  Bainey again grabbed the pole award only 0.19 seconds faster than Harvey’s son Brian Harrison.

The first lap of the Window World 75 presented by CoolShirt turned nearly disastrous.  Harvey jumped out to the front initially, but Brian came back on the inside.  McLaughlin started third and with a huge run out of turn four to complete lap one got into the back of Brian, sending Brian’s No. 15 CoalFacts.org Chevrolet around in front of the field.  Nelson would also spin to avoid contact and miraculously not one car in the field had any significant damage.

As the race went on, the summer sun was extremely tough on equipment with several competitors suffering overheating issues and McLaughlin’s No. 21 Don Gnat Racing Chevrolet eventually being sidelined with a rear end problem.  Up front it was 2015’s top performers battling for the win with Harvey Harrison leading the first half of the race in his No. 51 Southern Coal Corporation Chevrolet.

Nelson would make a bid for the top spot on a few occasions but catching them fast was Bainey, who started the race in sixth after the redraw.  After the flagman signified the halfway point, Bainey used the high line to power by both competitors for the lead and would never look back.  It was his second victory of his career, the season, and at his home track CNB Bank Raceway Park.

“We rode behind them for a while and kind of watched where they were good and where we were better,” Bainey recapped after the skies opened up following post-race interviews.  “I thought Brent was going to get him a couple times, but Harvey, he’s got a motor.  Every time you would get under him, Harvey would come back.  I saw him come down and I had a run so I dove in on the outside and it stuck, got back in it and drag raced down the back straightaway.”

For Nelson and his No. 80 Berg Construction / Atkinson Welding Chevrolet team, it was a successful weekend with two top five finishes.  Nevertheless, the Petersburg, West Virginia driver admitted that he and the competition will have some work to do to catch Bainey for the championship.

“All in all, with a second place finish we’ll count it as a win,” Nelson said  “I’m going to tell you, I don’t know if many people are going to have much for the 00, but we’re going to run him hard every week we get the opportunity.”

Brian Harrison finished third after falling out of the race the night before with wheel bearing issues.  Series official and former Super Cup driver Neil Gacom went home to Ohio overnight and returned with some spare parts necessary to help Brian get where he needed to be to take the green on Saturday.

On the last restart Harvey Harrison slipped to fourth, but was in good spirits following the grueling race.

“I needed to be on the outside, but hey, I’ve won my share of races,” Harrison mentioned.  “We’re here to have fun and we’ll get them next time.”

Maryland driver Rob Hindt survived to round out the top five earning his best finish in only his second career start in his No. 05 On Track Racing Experience Chevrolet.

The series now moves on to Midvale Speedway in Ohio, a track points leader Dan Bainey has never seen.  He will have a number of competitors looking to turn around their season for the better and get win number one of 2015 when the series heads to the 3/10-mile on Saturday, August 8.

Super Cup Stock Car Series gets ready for Return to CNB Bank Raceway Park in Clearfield, PA

Its sure to be a shootout as the Super Cup Stock Car Series Teams have been gearing up for their 2nd event of the season at the CNB Bank Raceway Park next weekend.

Series rookie Dan Bainey hopes to continue the momentum from his first career victory at the Clearfield, Pennsylvania track in May.  Second place finisher last time out Harvey Harrison was a winner in 2009 when the series most recently had twin races.  Perennial championship contenders Brent Nelson, Brian Harrison, JJ Pack, and Kevin Kromer all will work to change the winning outcome and improve on their finishing result.

In addition to the series regulars there will be some different faces to keep an eye on.  One of them, a former champion and a 2013 winner at CNB, will be quite familiar.

With the NASCAR Truck Series having the week off, Todd Peck and his crew have the ability to bring the Super Cup car back out.  Their last appearance in June 2014 at CNB did not turn out the way they had hoped, but the Hanover, Pennsylvania driver still enjoys the track.

CNB Bank Raceway Park Solo Event Information


Autocross is a timed event that pits a driver's skill and a car's handling ability against the clock. A course is laid out using pylons (traffic cones) and the goal is to travel from the starting line to the finish in the lowest amount of time. A time penalty is incurred when cones are hit, so precision and control are very important. "Autocross" and "Solo" are used interchangeably - "Solo" is the SCCA's specific brand of autocross.

Autocross is one of the cheapest, safest and easiest motorsports to participate in. Our fees (listed below) are low, and no special safety gear (such as roll bars, fire suits, etc.) is required except a helmet (and the Central PA Region has free loaner helmets available). Although a wide range of vehicles (from go-karts to purpose-built open wheel cars) compete in autocross, almost any production car is also welcome. Cars only compete against other, similar cars depending on its original performance and modifications. Cars are never near each other on the course and the speeds are relatively low.

If you're interested, come out and watch or participate!

  • Please read our Competition Rules and Site Regulations
  • Event location
  • Cost is $35 for SCCA members and $45 for non-members. Members MUST have their card present for discount. ALL competitors MUST have their driver's license to participate.

Large Crowd at CNB Bank Raceway Park watches local favorite

Dan Bainey win the Super Cup Stock Car Series Season Opener


It came down to just two car lengths, as Dan Bainey of Philipsburg, PA held off West Virginia driver Harvey Harrison to take the checkered flag in the Window World 75 presented by RH2 Saturday at the CNB Bank Raceway Park in Clearfield.


Drivers from Pennsylvania, Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, West Virginia, Tennessee, Indiana, New York, and New Jersey made the trip to the famed 5/8 Mile Speedway in Clearfield, PA.


Threatening rain storms were in the area, and even caused the event start time to be moved ahead by 45 minutes. But that didn’t seem to deter the local racing fans as one of the largest crowds in the last few years was on hand for the Super Cup Stock Car Series season opener.


West Virginia’s Brent Nelson led the field to the green flag in his #80 Berg Construction Chevrolet and held it for the first 10 laps before being overtaken by Codie Rohrbaugh in his #7 Grant County Mulch Chevrolet.


Rohrbaugh would lead the field for several laps before a caution fell on lap 20. On the restart Rohrbaugh had issues heading into turn one and found himself in the outside wall when the smoke cleared from his #7.


Nelson regained the lead in his #80 and would hold it at the halfway point as the #00 of Dan Bainey had found his way to 2nd, followed by #51 of Harvey Harrison, #15 Brian Harrison, and #14 of Mike Potter.


Bainey in the #00 was the only one that seemed to be able to keep pace with the #80 of Nelson as the two pulled away from the others, but a caution with just 22 laps to go would set up the field for what would prove to be a rather exciting finish.


On the restart the #80 of Nelson took the lead while the #00 of Bainey found himself suddenly challenged by a trio of tough competitors. The #15 of Brian Harrison moved to 2nd briefly before Bainey was able to regain the position a few laps later and then set his sights on running back down the #80 of Nelson.


Bainey caught Nelson and dove under him as they heading into turn 1 with 16 laps remaining. He made the pass for the lead and was followed by the #51 of Harvey Harrison who moved into second.


Harrison pulled to the bumper of Bainey with just 10 laps to go and the two battled hard for the next few laps. The fans were on their feet as both the #00 of Bainey and #51 of Harrison seemed to be pushing it to the edge. They both found themselves sideways off the corners more than a few times.


With five laps to go Bainey cleared Harrison for the final time. Harrison pulled within a few car lengths again with just two laps to go, but Bainey was able to stay out front and take the checkered for his first win the Super Cup Stock Car Series in only his second start.


“It was a great way to start of the season with our #00 team,” said Bainey as he climbed from his #00 that featured a very crowd pleasing throwback paint scheme to the 1990 “Days of Thunder” movie that starred Tom Cruise.


“To be able to come out and win at our home track right here in Clearfield in front of all these great fans is pretty cool. It was a lot of fun, we had to earn it, but it sure was fun!”


The series heads to Columbus Motor Speedway in Ohio for its second event of the season in a few weeks and will return to the CNB Bank Raceway Park in Clearfield Saturday June 27th for the Speedways Next Event.

Close Racing and Free Admission Set to Kick Off 2015 Super Cup Season at CNB 

Skyland, North Carolina (May 12, 2015) – It has been a long race-less eight months, and the Super Cup Stock Car Series teams and drivers are more than ready to get back on the track.  Potentially the largest field in its eight year history is expected for the Window World 75 presented by RH2 at CNB Bank Raceway Park, and will feature the emergence of some changes for the 2015 season.

 It was announced back in January that the series would be switching to the American Racer EC-82 economy compound as the tire to be used starting with the Clearfield, Pennsylvania event.  read full story here


Super Cup and CNB Bank Raceway Park Officials Move Season Opener to May 16

The CNB Bank Raceway Park has moved our May 2nd Event to SATURDAY MAY 16th – with

FREE ADMISSION for the Super Cup Stock Car Series Season Opener! (see full story below)

Skyland, North Carolina (April 22, 2015) – Due to concern of uncertain weather predicted ahead and an opening in the schedule, Super Cup Stock Car Series and CNB Bank Raceway Park officials have made the decision to move the season opening Window World 75 presented by RH2 to Saturday, May 16.  The schedule of events from May 2 will remain the same as originally released and the track’s free grandstand admission promotion will continue to be honored.

“The 10 day forecast shows the potential for a bad weather system and we are planning for this to be the biggest event since our NASCAR show in 2012. There was an opening to move the event with the Super Cup Stock Car Series so we took the opportunity to do what we think will be best for all the fans who plan to come out,” said CNB Bank Raceway Park owner Tim Bainey Jr. (read full Super Cup release here)

Tim Jr Announces FREE ADMISSION TO FIRST EVENT SATURDAY MAY 16th and talks about 2015 CNB Bank Raceway Park and Asphalt Racing in the Region

 “We have some great partners and sponsors at the CNB Bank Raceway Park,” said Tim Jr. “I met with several of them and talked it over with my family and we decided to make the first event of the season ON US.”

“We want fans to know that we are doing everything we can to try and help Asphalt Racing in this part of the country, and we don’t want anyone to miss out on this first event because they are worried about money – so we are offering FREE ADMISSION to anyone in the grandstands or drive-in parking area (hillside) for the SATURDAY MAY 2 EVENT. (there will be admission charges for the PIT/INFIELD AREA)

The biggest thing I want to say – is that we need the fans to come out and see just how much fun it is to watch professional asphalt racing right here in Clearfield, PA. We have one of the few Asphalt Racing Tracks in the whole Northeastern US and its right here. Our family is working hard and we have pulled together a lot of friends and partners to invest in giving us all a place to enjoy it – and that’s exactly what we want you to do.

We know it’s been tough for local racing in general the last few years, dirt and asphalt. Several local tracks have closed and I know the last 2 seasons right here at this speedway weren’t that great either and we are hoping to get things back on track with all the Race Fans here in our Region!

To go further – we are not going to be opening concession stands for this event. We want fans to show up and not expect to spend a single dollar at this event! We are encouraging fans to pack a cooler and bring their own snacks, food, or beverages (keep in mind alcohol is not allowed in the Family Grandstands, only the Hillside/Tailgating area). Stop by Walmart, pack a picnic, or plan on hitting Denny’s or DQ after the race. Whatever you decide we just want families to come out and ENJOY OUR MAY 2nd EVENT!

You mention tracks closing, why do you think this has been happening?

A lot of it has just been the economy, it cost money to race at any level, but it also takes a lot to run these places. I know there are still a lot of people out there who could really enjoy a night out with their family watching something that many of us have loved to be a part of for a long time.

The only way for our sport to keep going is for fans to come out and support it, if the fans show up – then our advertising partners will continue to help put these shows on and the drivers and teams will be able to continue to compete. That is the reason we decided to give free admission to this first event. We want EVERYONE to come out and give it a try – bring the family and see what you think of it.

Why no support divisions for these events?

We made the decision to go with 1 Main Event for each date on our schedule this season for a few reasons. For the fans – I want them to be able to come and watch a great event. The Super Cup Series brings a solid field of cars and fans will get to experience a taste of what they see on TV. I am thinking (and this is tentative) that we will run qualifying time trials around 5pm, then take a short break and go right into the race around 630. Things should finish up by 830 and everyone can be on their way home. If they want more they can always come early to watch the afternoon practice session.

I’ve been to a lot of tracks where they try to have 3-4 support divisions and that is great if you can get 12 cars in each division, but that’s not possible right now in our region and it’s just not that exciting to watch 4 or 5 cars race on a track as big as ours… So we decided to focus on just 1 really nice race. For the drivers and teams – I feel like if anyone is going to invest money in an asphalt car - this series is the best and most affordable place to do it.

Anything else you want to add?

I just want to ask each and every Race Fan out there to invite your friends, family, and everyone you know to our first event of the season. If you have a group or club that would like to be a part of it be sure to contact us and we will make it a memorable event for you! Thanks again – and I look forward to seeing everyone Saturday May 2nd at the CNB Bank Raceway Park in Clearfield, PA!



Mix of Newer Faces in Hopes of Adding to Super Cup Competition in 2015

Skyland, North Carolina (April 14, 2015) – The bulk of veterans have already committed to returning for another season, continuing a sturdy foundation in the Super Cup Stock Car Series.  As an added bonus, fans will see a fresh look with several drivers announcing their intentions to join in on the fun starting with the upcoming season opener at CNB Bank Raceway Park in Clearfield, Pennsylvania.

Hometown driver Dan Bainey comes in with the goal of keeping up with the front runners and maybe putting a trophy on the shelf.  Debuting at the end of last season with a strong fourth place finish gives him high hopes going into 2015.

“It helps with my confidence as a driver, since for 15 years I have always been the one wrenching on the cars,” said Bainey.

The SCCA announced an addition to their 2015 Schedule making Sunday September 13th the fourth event they will hold at the CNB Bank Raceway Park in Clearfield, PA during the year.

"I'm getting a lot of interest from around the region with these SCCA Events and we are excited to have them add one more to the schedule," said Tim Bainey Jr. "The opportunity for individuals to drive their own sports cars at the CNB Bank Raceway Park with the SCCA is going to bring a whole new level of interest to our region."  

The SCCA AutoCross Events that focus on High Performance Precision Driving, the very foundation of the Sports Car Club of America tradition.

These events will take place on May 24th, June 21st, and August 16th, and Sept 13th.

SCSCS Opens the Door to Potential New Competitors in 2015


Once again, changes in other series have brought inquiries and requests to Super Cup Stock Car Series officials to permit deviations from the established and proven rules package which would allow new competitors to join the series.  SCSCS officials are announcing that on a limited and restricted basis, former Pro Cup competitors will be permitted to bring their existing car to SCSCS races.


“Managed growth has allowed the SCSCS to consistently offer a level of affordable competition while also minimizing impact to our members, family, and business responsibilities,” says series director Joe Schmaling.  “We recognized the need to consider what are the minimum requirements/changes necessary that could permit these teams to enter our series without losing our identity or creating a negative impact to our current full-time competitors or sponsors such as PFG, one of our longtime sponsors from the very beginning and supplier of the nose and tail panels used in the series.”


Our policy has been to let them look and then get like us, within reason.  Currently, the group of cars that are available and indicating an interest in moving to SCSCS are former Pro Cup competitors.  I have always tried to keep an open mind about the cars and teams in our series.  For example, from the beginning, we had provisions to permit the old “Busch” cars to race, however none ever came.  Additionally, we also opened the door to permit former “Nationwide” cars and two came.”


Permission to race in the SCSCS will be granted on a limited case by case basis.  Interested parties should contact SCSCS series director Joe Schmaling at 828-768-3589 or via email at scscs@att.net for further details.  Whereas maintaining car count is absolutely the single most important thing to the SCSCS, the series extends the invitation for new competitors while also remaining committed to the core group of racers, as well as sponsors, who have consistently supported and competed in series events through the years.


Super Cup Stock Car Series Announces Change in Tire Supplier 

Skyland, North Carolina – At this past weekend’s Motorsports 2015 Racecar and Trade Show at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center a special announcement was made about the tires that will be utilized in the Super Cup Stock Car Series. 

Beginning with the season opener at CNB Bank Raceway Park (PA) in May, the American Racer EC-82 economy compound will be the tire of choice.  The supplier, Lias Tire based out of Indiana, Pennsylvania, will help with a mix of new and used tires to continue with the legacy of affordability in the series.

 “Our teams wanted to make the change at the first race in order to get used to the differences,” said Director of Competition Joe Schmaling.  “We expect that a new set of tires will have a very long life just like the (previously utilized) BFGoodrich’s had and be very cost effective for our teams.”

 The tire was tested at Motordrome Speedway with Lou Ansel in 2014 and it was determined that a used tire will run as fast as a new one after about 30 laps with proven durability for the distance of any race on the schedule and beyond.

 The new tire will add an extra element to the strategy in several ways as well.

 “I think it's a great idea and the new tire will take us back to the days where the tire is a lot less forgiving,” said 2014 series champion JJ Pack.  “It will make the teams work a little harder on their setups to keep the tires under them longer.”

 In addition, there will continue to be some cost limiting measures in place.  To keep competition even, teams that purchase new tires on race day must practice a set number of laps prior to the start of the feature.  Also, there will be a restriction on the number of new tires that can be purchased over the length of a season.

 Affordability is what keeps several of the core competitors coming back race after race and year after year.

 “I think it’s a good move for the series,” said Kevin Kromer, whose son Kyle’s car was on display at the Motorsports show with the American Racer tires.  “The best part about it is we have control of our tires from the first lap to the last lap.”

 The final pieces to the puzzle continue to fit into place for the 2015 Super Cup Stock Car Series season, which is set to begin in only a few short months.

 Fans can continue to follow along with preseason happenings at the official web site www.supercupstockcarseries.com, on Facebook at www.facebook.com/SCSCSRacing, and now on Twitter @SCSCSRacing

We are sure you’ve heard of it – and now you can be a part of it – the SCCA is coming to the CNB Bank Raceway Park in 2015.

The SCCA will be running a series of AutoCross Events that focus on High Performance Precision Driving, the very foundation of the Sports Car Club of America tradition.

These events will take place on May 24th, June 21st, and August 16th.

“We are very excited to have the SCCA coming to the CNB Bank Raceway Park,” said Tim Bainey Jr. “I think this is something that a lot of people will enjoy as we work to grow it at the Speedway. My wife and I had the pleasure of going to one last year and it was great!”

“And contrary to what many people think - you don’t have to bring a BMW, Corvette, or brand new Mercedes out to run. They have a nationally developed handicap scoring system for nearly every make and mode of car to be able to compete against each other in these events and it is a lot of fun!”

Participants run a preset course, with a scoring system based on overall time along with deductions for hitting cones, stepping off course, and following the guidelines.

A History of the Super Cup Stock Car Series...

(a nice story as we look forward to 2015)


Chapter One

About a year ago a rumbling started in the short track world.  Talk about a touring series that was affordable started to circulate.  With interest growing and costs escalating out of control the time was right.  Major changes year after year forced teams to withdraw from USAR.  The time had come to get back to the basic idea of running the cars that you already had.  Several people were interested in a low cost series and came together to make it happen.  The time for talking was over, and the time for doing was here.


On October 13th 2007 Hickory Motor Speedway was chosen for an exhibition race.  Teams from as far away as Iowa and Pennsylvania came to compete.  Fifteen cars showed up for a 50 lap trophy dash.  Dexter Canipe Jr. of Newton NC. won the race.





Bainey Family Back in 2015

Super Cup Stock Car Series Signed for 3 Events

Tim Bainey Jr back in charge at the CNB Bank Raceway Park in Clearfield

The Bainey family announced they will return as owners of the CNB Bank Raceway Park in Clearfield effective immediately with Tim Bainey Jr back and taking charge of the effort.

“I’m excited to announce that we are back and have everything in place for what I am sure will be some of the most exciting events ever at the CNB Bank Raceway Park in Clearfield, PA,” said Tim Jr.

“My family has a lot of commitments between our different businesses, and that is what made us decide to sale in 2012. The last few years have been really tough on “local racing” in general… dirt and asphalt. But with that in mind I feel like there is no better time than right now to put these things together and set a plan in place that will give us a GREAT PLACE to go and lots of fun for years to come at the CNB Bank Raceway Park in Clearfield, PA!”

“We have one of the biggest and nicest racing facilities in this part of the country and there is no doubt we live in an area where - dirt or asphalt – street, backroads, drags, or even go-karts – the kind of people who live in this part of the country just love the idea of racing in general and we need to be able to bring them all together in a place where they can enjoy themselves, have a great time, and create those kind of memories that someday they will be telling their grandkids about… and that is exactly what we are going to do!”

“We’ve been working very hard the last few months to get things in line, and we have some REALLY exciting announcements that we will be releasing over the next few weeks. The all new Street Wars deal is going to be awesome, but we will share those details soon. We are excited to kick things off with announcing our new deal with the Super Cup Stock Car Series for 3 Events in 2015.”

Super Cup Stock Car Series signed for 3 Events at CNB Bank Raceway Park in Clearfield, PA in 2015

The Super Cup Stock Car Series has announced a long term partnership with the CNB Bank Raceway Park in Clearfield, PA in a venture that will see them make 3 appearances at the speedway in 2015.


“I believe Super Cup Stock Car Series is the key to the future of Asphalt Racing in this part of the country,” said speedway president Tim Bainey Jr. in a short interview.


“Local racing as most of us have always remembered it just isn’t a real option anymore for fans, drivers, or tracks. I hate to say it, but that’s just a fact. People don’t have the time or the money (or both) to be able to do it week in and week out with the way the costs have just climbed to the crazy levels they have anymore. That is why we decided to get so involved with the Super Cup Stock Car Series.”


“The series promotes itself as ‘Racing the way it used to be’ which is exactly what people need. It is an affordable way to have fun, in a great atmosphere, with good competition, and set up in a way that resembles what Nascar Racing was a few years ago when it was so popular. The series really has it all and that is why I am making a personal commitment to helping bring this series to our region.”


“I invite anyone who might be interested in buying a car for the series to personally call me (or email info@cnbbankracewaypark.com), I really believe it is that good. The series uses old Nascar Nationwide, Busch, or Cup style cars. Surprisingly I know many of the guys in the series who bought race ready cars – engines, transmissions, seats, shocks, and all - anywhere from $8,000 on the low end to maybe $18,000 on the high end. And with the way the series runs on ‘old/used’ race tires, it really makes it an equal playing field where they keep you from “outspending” the next guy. Anyone who has seen a Super Cup Race will tell you they are very exciting and competitive to watch.”

“My idea is that local racers right here in our region can go out and buy one of these cars. On a side note - I think its pretty cool to know that you are racing a car that at one time probably ran a Nascar race at Bristol, or Atlanta, maybe even Daytona – who knows. But you buy a car – knowing you can run it right here in Clearfield 3 times a year in events that are planned, laid out, and ran just like a Nascar Event. They have a 2 hour practice session, then Qualifying Time Trials, and a Main Event that follows closely along the guidelines of a Cup Race (double file restarts, lucky dog passes, etc).”

“Now you run Clearfield 3 times a year, but that doesn’t have to be all – you can take this same car and go to any of the series other National Events if you want. You could run CNB 3 times, and go to Jennerstown 2 times. You would keep your travel costs down, and run more laps in those 5 events that you would if you ran a full season in a street stock or late model at the local dirt or asphalt tracks in the past. If you want – load up the crew and head out of state for one of the series other events in Virginia, North Carolina, or wherever you want.”

“And that will also help a great deal in getting sponsors involved with your team. A local company will see value in Clearfield, but a bigger company might say I want to do Jennerstown as well. An even bigger one could say lets do a little in Ohio, or maybe lets do them all. It has real value all the way around.”

“Even if you ran the series full time, the events are spaced at 1-2 times per month, so you can still enjoy a lot of your summer weekends doing other things with the family (cookouts, little league games, parades, fairs, maybe some Friday Night Drag Racing at CNB Bank Raceway). It allows the family to still enjoy racing, but keep everyone happy and at the same time not go completely broke on racing.”

“And it gets better on the cost side. The parts for these cars are easy to pick up used from cup and nationwide teams for a fraction of what they cost new. A-arms, rear ends, brakes, suspension parts, hoses, fuel cells, all of it – the people within this series have the connections to get you whatever it is you need and they are just really a great group of racers to be around. Even if you currently have a dirt street stock or another asphalt car, some of those engines are comparable to what the series runs and you might be able to transfer a lot of your stuff over to one of these chassis and do it with very little expense.”

“So for all of these reasons and more, I am personally inviting racers from around the region to take a serious look and consider being a part of the Super Cup Stock Car Series. Give me a call and I will do whatever I can personally to help get you on track. I am really looking forward to seeing this grow in a way that will keep racing affordable for those of us who love it – long into the future.”
