and Debuting Drivers Join June CNB Field for Two Opportunities at
North Carolina (June 22, 2015) – Rain cancellations and
schedule changes have opened the door for a special format this
coming weekend when the Super Cup Stock Car Series returns to CNB
Bank Raceway Park. The
Window World 50/50 All Star Event will feature two 50 lap shootouts
around the 5/8-mile oval each for 2015 championship points on
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
contenders Brent Nelson, Brian Harrison, JJ Pack, and Kevin Kromer
all will work to change the winning outcome and improve on their
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.
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.
“We ran real well
last year until we blew the whole thing apart,” Peck said about
their engine failure while leading early in their most recent start.
“If we can pick up where we left off that would be great,
but it won’t be an easy task.”
Peck cited that not
having any laps on the new tire or on their returned motor could
potentially leave them at a slight disadvantage.
Although their motor came back when they were in the Midwest
assisting another Truck Series team’s effort, their intentions are
to be ready for Saturday.
Despite being at
the race track often this year, Peck has not been in the driver’s
seat during race conditions since Daytona in February.
He attempted to qualify at Charlotte during the weekend of
the May Super Cup race at CNB, but they missed making the field.
“We found out
what was wrong in qualifying,” Peck said.
“All things considered it was disappointing, but it was
good up until that point. I’m
dying to get back into something.”
Peck Motorsports group has been putting in more hours helping
another driver get to the race track to make his Super Cup Stock Car
Series debut. Much like
a few successful SCSCS drivers in the past, Jason Schue brings wins
and championships from a karting background to his first competitive
foray in a full-bodied stock car.
The Littlestown, Pennsylvania racer hopes that expertise and
advice from Peck as well as some time spent in driving schools will
lessen the learning curve.
I have always wanted to do and I’m excited for it,” said Schue,
who sold his karts to make his dream come true.
“My main goal is to finish.”
Schue will have
some quality equipment under him.
His car formerly belonged to NASCAR race winner Bobby Dotter
during his driving days and was later transitioned to race in the
Pro Cup series, while the motor came from current Truck Series
competitor B.J. McLeod. The
landscaper by day works six or seven days a week during peak times,
but admitted that sometimes having fun is a must.
Included among the
expected entries is Kyle Kromer, who is more than ready for his
first start of the 2015 season. Denver,
North Carolina’s Larry Wilcox takes advantage of an off weekend as
a mechanic in the NASCAR Xfinity Series to bring his car up to the
Keystone state for a return to the series.
hillside seating will open at 4 p.m. Saturday with qualifying
scheduled for 5 p.m. and the first 50 lap race set to go off at 6
p.m. Following the first
feature there will be an invert for the second race, which will
begin at approximately 7 p.m.
