Cup Teams Return to the Track for the Performance Fiberglass 75
Presented by Cool Shirt
It has been over a
month since the Super Cup Stock Car Series last made an appearance
on the track due to May’s rainout at Motordrome Speedway, but
teams have been readying for the upcoming race at Columbus Motor
Speedway in Ohio.
Some teams have
been busy off the track in the meantime as well.
The Peck Motorsports team unveiled their NASCAR Camping World
Truck for 2013 and driver Todd Peck participated in the Arthritis
Walk in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Todd, who was diagnosed with arthritis as a child, helped
raised funds for the foundation by offering participants the
opportunity to sign his pit wall banner and post sticky notes on his
truck. Todd and his team
were the 2010 winners of the Super Cup race at Columbus and will be
a contender once again this year.
are five drivers looking to improve on their first career
performances in the series at Shenandoah Speedway in April.
Leading this group is Codie Rohrbaugh who had a phenomenal
debut with a top ten car during practice, and despite spinning early
in the race rebounded to a fourth place finish.
Nokesville, Virginia’s Mike Southard also had a fast car
and ran as high as third before finishing the evening in sixth.
New Jersey representative Howie Conk Jr. started the race
outside the top ten, but stayed out of trouble and steadily worked
his way to an eighth place finish.
The remaining two
first-timers hope to turn around their luck in the second race of
the season. Kyle Baugh
climbed from the back of the field to third before getting spun,
relegating him to an eleventh place finish.
Baugh has previous starts at Columbus in a Legends car.
Derrick Layne was only able to run a handful of laps at
Shenandoah due to a mechanical issue, and looks for a strong finish
Speedway differs from some of the other tracks the Super Cup Stock
Car Series visits, with its smaller 1/3 mile, semi-banked layout.
The track has been on the Super Cup schedule since 2009, but
last year’s race was canceled due to rain.
The last race winner was three-time defending series champion
Jody Harrison in May of 2011, who held off Shenandoah winner Jim
Crabtree Jr. Despite
coming up short of the victory, Crabtree was fastest in practice and
qualifying during that weekend.
