Signs On for 2017 SCSCS Schedule
Joy, Pennsylvania (May 7, 2017) – 19 career ARCA victories,
numerous NASCAR starts, and success across numerous other racing
divisions and sanctioning bodies – now add a planned full season
in the Super Cup Stock Car Series for accomplished racer Bob Schacht.
North Carolina resident made his debut in July 2016 at Jennerstown
Speedway (PA), shortly after being informed about the series.
over to my shop looking for parts and I asked what he was looking
for them for,” Schacht explained.
“He told me about the series and with that I called
(Director of Competition) Joe (Schmaling).
He said bring what you’ve got and we’ll adjust and you
can go race. It’s the
most fun I’ve had in 20 years.”
That enjoyment came
in the form of a pair of third place finishes his first time out, an
experience that has Schacht coming back for more in 2017.
like the format, practicing that day and running one 50 lapper, then
having the opportunity to work on your car between races,” Schacht
said. “The guys we
race with, they race fair. I
raced side-by-side with (2015 SCSCS champion Dan) Bainey for 15 to
20 laps without even touching each other.”
While the Chicago
area born and raised driver has frequented countless facilities over
multiple decades, most of the SCSCS schedule consists of tracks he
has yet to visit. Nevertheless,
Schacht is confident after working on the car over the winter that
his team can contend anywhere. The
team plans to shake down their No. 75 Engineered Components / Bob
Schacht Motorsports Chevrolet at Hickory Motor Speedway and
translate any feedback to the first event of the season at the
3/10-mile Midvale Speedway.
One event Schacht
has circled on his calendar is Lonesome Pine Raceway in August. He
feels the Virginia 3/8-mile track owes him one after last competing
there back in 1983.
“I won that
race,” Schacht claimed, despite the stat sheet showing him with a
second place finish. “I
had just passed (Bob) Dotter coming out of one and the lights at the
race track went out. We
raced back to the line with me in the lead but because of the
transformer going out we couldn’t finish the race, and they
reverted back to the last lap.”
place is probably a whole lot different from when I was there.
The other difference is I’m racing now to have some fun.”
Race Day Schedule
and preliminary list of entries for the Saturday, June 3 season
opening Skipco Auto Auction Twin 50s presented by United Tire &
Service at Midvale Speedway are now posted.
