and More Return for Jennerstown Twin 50s
Defending Race Winner to Make First Start of the Season
Joy, Pennsylvania (July 5, 2016) – An immense amount of
excitement has been building heading into the fourth Super Cup Stock
Car Series visit to Jennerstown Speedway Complex located in the
Laurel Highlands of Pennsylvania.

Tire “Night at the Races” presented by Patrick Miller
Photography will feature two opportunities for fans to see drivers
compete for the win in 50-lap races, each awarding points toward the
2016 series championship. Past
events and energizing developments, including the recent agreement
between SCSCS and MAVTV, have the track staff enthusiastic about
“The fact that
television is coming back to Jennerstown and Super Cup is bringing
them here is a pretty honoring experience,” track co-general
manager Bill Hribar recently said.
“We truly hope to think that the big event at the end of
last year, the crowd, and the highest car count in the nine years of
the inception of the series had something to do with building that
representing the local contingent like Jeff Zillweger, who is off to
a consistent start to the season right behind the first two race
winners in points, and Bill Ashton, whose best career results have
come at Jennerstown, contribute to getting the supporters out and
into the stands.
“To have some
local guys with a horse in the race is going to be interesting as
well, so we’re really excited to have them,” Hribar added.
“They put on a heck of a show.
We have an excellent venue that we can provide.”
located not too far away leads a resurgence of some previously
successful competitors in SCSCS, stock car racing, and at the
1/2-mile facility that will be throwing their hat into the ring.
2015 champion Dan Bainey plans to make his first start of
2016 and after a fourth and two runner-up finishes in his past
Jennerstown starts the home state driver wants nothing less than a
victory on Saturday night.
“This is huge for
me,” Bainey indicated. “Both
my dad and brother have won races there and I want to be able to add
to that. I always put
100 percent into anything I do, but after the way things ended there
last time, I have a little more focus for this race.”
defending Jennerstown winner Codie Rohrbaugh will also be back.
The West Virginia driver makes his first SCSCS start of the year on
Pack won at Jennerstown to cap off his 2014 championship season and
returns to the series following a third place finish at Midvale
Speedway in early June. The
Virginia racer will certainly be one of the favorites after
contending for the win early on in the 2015 twin races as well.
In regards to the
2016 standings, teams will not necessarily be content with a good
points day despite finishes on this night having such an impact on
the year-end outcome.
“We want twin 50
wins, and if I can’t get both of them then we’ll win one,”
points leader Brent Nelson, who added that he plans to come back
harder than ever after a late race mishap at Columbus Motor
In addition to
Nelson, second place in standings Harvey Harrison has led laps in
the past at Jennerstown and looks to go for a second and third
victory in a row after being successful last time out at Columbus.
Drivers such as
Trent Gossar, Jason Schue, and Brian Kaltreider will be seeing a
track on a second occasion for the first time in their SCSCS career
after making their debuts at Jennerstown last August.
Coupled with Kevin Kromer, Brian and Brandon Harrison, and
Mike Kurkowski, Saturday will present a stellar turnout of stock car
racers. Kurkowski is
expected to break out the machine that he won with at nearby
Motordrome Speedway last July for the first time since then.
But that’s not
all. A host of new and
returning racers look to be a wild card among the regular
Wilcox from Denver, North Carolina has been a part of the series
since the beginning, fielding cars for various drivers along the
way. On Saturday, the
past Tri-Star Motorsports team member in the NASCAR Xfinity Series
will make his first start as a driver since 2009 in hopes to add to
a total of eight career top five finishes.
Although making his
SCSCS debut, Mooresville, North Carolina-based Bob Schacht by no
means lacks experience and is not a stranger to success.
According to records, the veteran racer originally from
Illinois has never competed on the Jennerstown grounds, but brings
23 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series starts and 17 ARCA Racing Series
victories to his credit, multiple of which were in the Keystone
State at Pocono Raceway. Schacht
could immediately become a factor when practice kicks off at 2:00
p.m. Saturday afternoon.
