Super Cup Teams Make Return Trip for
the Jennerstown 75 Presented by Comp-Cal
North Carolina (July 15, 2014) – In May, the Super Cup Stock
Car Series had the chance to be a part of the grand opening weekend
of racing at Pennsylvania’s Jennerstown Speedway.
Unfortunately, the track was forced to postpone their first
racing event since 2008 to the following week due to rain and the
series was unable to return. Luckily,
the opportunity to come back became available and the teams finally
look forward to having the chance to compete this time around.
One driver that is very anxious to
return behind the wheel is Walnutport, Pennsylvania’s Kyle Kromer.
The 2013 Most Improved Driver was unable to attend during the
first visit, suffered motor issues before taking the green flag at
Columbus Motor Speedway later that month, and as a result the car
was not ready to compete at CNB Bank Raceway Park in June.
The 17-year-old has been keeping
quite occupied since, however. He
was offered the chance to speak about racing to groups of fifth
through eighth graders at the Lehigh County Technical Institute.
“I had the chance to talk about how
racing creates career opportunities,” said Kromer.
“I explained different parts of the car, and that there’s
more involved than the driver like different engineering and
Kyle demonstrated to the campers the
workings of a Super Cup car and showed clips from the driver
perspective, including the dashboard fire he experienced during
practice at Columbus. Besides
that, Kyle has pretty much been waiting for the freshened motor to
“We just picked the motor up from a
new engine builder,” said Kromer.
“He did an amazing job on it.”
This will be the first time Kyle will
see Jennerstown Speedway, but he has received some feedback going
in. Goals have been set
for this coming weekend.
“I heard Jennerstown’s a great
track,” said Kromer. “Learning
the track and finding the grooves will be important.
Since it’s going to be my first time there I would like to
finish the race in one piece.”
Most of all, Kyle hopes to escape the
bad luck and return to being a regular competitor starting with this
“It’s been a rough season so far,
but every driver has those,” said Kromer.
“Hopefully we can get back in the top ten in points.”
Kyle’s father Kevin comes off a
strong runner up finish in Clearfield but continues to have some
ground to make up in the standings behind JJ Pack and Brent Nelson,
who have both secured race victories this season.
In addition, several other competitors will be searching for
a strong run in the first Super Cup race at Jennerstown come
