Cup Teams Prepare for Doubleheader Weekend in Pennsylvania
Rain may have
shortened the last Super Cup Stock Car Series race in Columbus,
Ohio, but for the first time drivers will have two chances
throughout this coming weekend to race to the checkered flag.
will arrive, unload and race on Friday for the Anselís Tire Outlet
50 presented by MEP at Motordrome Speedway.
This was supposed to be their second appearance at the
Smithton, Pennsylvania 1/2 mile track, but persistent rain in the
area canceled the May event.
hopes to repeat the success from a very special weekend that came in
June of last year at Motordrome.
It marked the first time that father Kevin Kromer and son
Kyle were on the track together, and resulted in Kevin getting his
second career victory with a borrowed motor from Peck Motorsports.
Todd Peck and his
team have an arduous schedule coming up.
Not only do they plan on competing in both races this
weekend, but will head home and then load up for their first start
of the season in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series the next
Thursday at Kentucky Motor Speedway.
The preparation for this weekend hasnít been easy either,
as they had to replace the right side of the car as well as install
a new exhaust after damage from the Columbus race.
Peck along with the last race winner and point leader Jody
Harrison are former winners at Motordrome.
Saturday, the teams make the just over 100 mile trek northeast to
CNB Bank Raceway Park for their first ever appearance at the
Clearfield, Pennsylvania facility.
What makes the 5/8 mile that reopened in 2012 unique is that
it has gone back and forth from dirt to an asphalt layout in its
years of existence. In
its last clay configuration the entire track was not covered, giving
a different feel in turns one and two from turns three and four on
the now asphalt surface.
The Kuntz Motor
Company 50 presented by Boschett Timepieces will be wide open, since
a vast majority of the drivers have never seen this track.
In addition to the former Motordrome winners, drivers such as
Shenandoah winner Jim Crabtree Jr. and rookie Codie Rohrbaugh will
be among those that should be a factor.
Crabtreeís car has been repaired since its accident while
battling for the lead at Columbus, and Rohrbaugh has had some track
time since the previous event making his debut in the Pro Cup Series
starting 13th and finishing 11th completing 247 of the 250 laps.
Racing will take
place on Friday and Saturday evenings with the race distance being
50 laps for each race. Saturdayís
festivities at CNB Bank Raceway Park include a chance for fans to
see the Super Cup cars up close and meet the drivers.
