Twin Features to Decide 2015 Super Cup Champion at Jennerstown
Tennessee (August 17, 2015) – It all comes down to Martella's
Night at the Races presented by Mignogna Collision Center.
A new Super Cup Stock Car Series champion will be determined
in the first 2015 appearance at Pennsylvania’s Jennerstown
Speedway this Saturday.
have gone in rookie Dan Bainey’s favor so far this season;
however, a 50 point lead does not necessarily mean he has the title
locked up. A unique
format of Twin 35 lap features that will each award points means the
championship is far from over. In
addition, this year’s introduction of a driver’s worst finish of
the year being dropped from their season points total will add to
the final calculations.
Unlike the last
race at Midvale where he salvaged a second place finish in his first
appearance there, the driver of the No. 00 DelGrosso Foods / Rock
& Ruthless Tattoo Parlor Ford will be going into familiar
territory this weekend.
“I want to win
Jennerstown, so we are going to go at it in the first race and
hopefully stay in the top three or four all night,” Bainey, a
fourth place finisher in his series debut at the track last year,
said about his intentions for Saturday.
“If we can do that, be around at the end of the first one,
for the second one it’s on for that one too.
I can’t wait to get back down to Jennerstown.”
Harvey Harrison has been right there with Bainey all year long.
The driver of the No. 51 Southern Coal Corporation Chevrolet
has experienced a resurgent season after a couple that were filled
with an assortment of mechanical issues.
He brings optimism in his return to Jennerstown despite not
even getting to see the green flag at last year’s season finale.
“We know about
what we need for Jennerstown, but the last couple times I went up
there I’ve had some gremlins in the car that we couldn’t seem to
get worked out,” Harrison explained.
“We were really fast the last time out, got ready to line
up on the track and my ignition had a short in it.
Car wouldn’t start and had to sit and watch the race.
I’m looking forward to going back up there to see if I can
put the 51 up front.”
contender Brent Nelson also has an outside shot at the title,
sitting 80 points out in third in his No. 80 Berg Construction /
Atkinson Welding Chevrolet.
The winners in the
2015 season have combined for only a total of 11 career starts,
which is sure to make those that have been around much longer like
Harrison and Nelson as well as veteran drivers Brian Harrison, Kevin
Kromer, and Lou Ansel even hungrier to break the recent streak of
newcomers in victory lane.
Ansel had a career
best top five run going last time out at Midvale before involvement
in an altercation sidelined him for the night.
Brian Harrison and Kromer have also repaired damage to their
cars from the last race.
Some part time
Super Cup racers will be there as well with nothing more than the
goal to achieve a win to close the season.
Larry Berg is the most recent series winner and certainly
will be a contender once again.
His grandson, 2014 Jennerstown winner Codie Rohrbaugh, is
fresh off his first career top 10 finish in the NASCAR K&N Pro
Series East and has assembled a racecar to compete alongside his
The unique twin 35
format is sure to present some interesting storylines as well.
Although in the hunt for the championship, Harvey Harrison
still has his focus on the task at hand for each race and what he
would like to see happen.
that’s going to be really interesting,” Harrison said.
“I don’t really think about (the championship) a lot.
I know that coming right down to the end of it if Dan and I
were running side by side neither one of us would probably take each
other out, but we would race each other extremely hard.
He’s a good driver and I think it would be cool if we
finished the season side by side in a real close race, but we’ll
have to wait and see how it all shakes out.”
