Tracks, Return Visits, Special Events and Formats Highlight 2017
SCSCS Season Schedule
Joy, Pennsylvania (February 22, 2017) – After a few months of
coordination with various facilities, the Super Cup Stock Car Series
is pleased to announce a 10th Anniversary campaign that has a solid
foundation for the future.
With driver and
team registrations indicating a need to hold more events in the
southern part of the country, the path toward a two-division
expansion will begin in 2017. SCSCS
will award points in each geography as well as crown an overall
series champion. Format
details will be announced prior to the start of the season.
“Taking the first
step to becoming a two-division series is something that I always
wanted to do,” series Director of Competition, Joe Schmaling,
noted. “The time just
feels right to set this idea
in motion. Planning for
the 2018 schedule is already underway.”
Four tracks in as
many states will highlight the regular season schedule.
For the second straight year, the stars in their full-bodied
stock cars will begin a search for the championship at Midvale
Speedway in Ohio the first weekend of June.
The difference for
2017’s running will be a twin race format consisting of 50-lap
features around the 3/10-mile bullring with both finishes counting
toward both overall season-ending and northern series points.
From there, the
3,300 pound steel-bodied machines increase their southern presence
by making an initial appearance at the 3/8-mile Kingsport Speedway
in Tennessee on Friday, June 23.
It will be the first stop in the Volunteer State since the
inaugural full season of competition in 2008.
It will also mark the first time the series has competed on a
concrete track surface.
Kicking off the
month of July will be the popular Jennerstown Speedway for twin
features up north. A
season ago the Pennsylvania 1/2-mile track hosted record numbers in
regards to both car counts and fans in the stands for the series.
regular season will be a return visit to Southwest Virginia’s
Lonesome Pine Raceway in early August for the second year in a row
at the 3/8-mile nestled in the mountains.
A few weeks later teams will be back at Jennerstown Speedway,
the third straight season in which twin features will occur to
decide the overall title.
While champions and
award recipients will already be recognized, the cars will not be
placed back in the garages once the summer ends this time around.
facility, Dominion Raceway, will host a special event on Saturday,
September 23. This race
will be non-points and serve as a test for the opening race which
will take place early in 2018.
The last time the
series visited the Eastern Virginia area was in 2012 at the former
Old Dominion Speedway. Now
slightly further down I-95 in Thornburg, outside of Spotsylvania,
drivers will have a new challenge on the 3/8-mile oval that began
hosting short track events in 2016.
There remains the
potential for additional special events to be appended to the
schedule to further accommodate driver and team interest leading
into the 2018 season.
