State Drivers and More Focused for Successful “Night at the
Races” at Jennerstown
Joy, Pennsylvania (July 5, 2017) – The Super Cup Stock Car
Series competitors are ready to shake off the recent wet weather and
kick-start a summer filled with high speeds at the popular
Jennerstown Speedway Complex nestled in the Laurel Highlands of
A majority of the
thousands of fans that flock to the facility will be pulling for
their fellow heroes from the home state during American Racer
“Night at the Races” presented by United Tire.
Walnutport’s Kevin Kromer paid a visit to the speedway
during their season opening weekend back in May to update the crowd
on recent progress with his health and describe the excitement that
will be witnessed this coming Saturday.
Kromer is coming
off two solid runs at Midvale Speedway a month ago and looks to
improve upon a Jennerstown personal best third place finish in his
No. 77 Nobody Fights Alone / Racing for a Cure Chevrolet.
His son Kyle had a strong top five run going last time out
before mechanical problems sidelined him, and will certainly be
focused on rebounding with a career effort in the No. 52 Kromer
Plumbing, Heating and Air / Ed Yesik Trucking Chevrolet.
August was a highlight in stock car racing for veteran racer Bill
Ashton. The Uniontown
resident powered to the outside of numerous past SCSCS winners to
gain his first ever victory at his home track.
After a slow start to the season, the driver of the No. 35
Buck Stove / Buck's Tiny Houses / Ethel's Edibles Chevrolet will
also be searching for success.
Jerod Brougher, a
rookie in the series, is no stranger to Jennerstown.
The former Street Stock feature winner was fast right out of
the box debuting his No. 72 Donegal Auto Body / Parry Custom Homes
Chevrolet and should be a force to reckon with at his home track.
Another local racer for more than 30 years, John Komarinski
will make his long-awaited introduction to the series and will be
joined by fellow Keystone State driver Jason Schue as a contender.
Crabtree Jr. enters the event as the current point leader, but has
only competed twice at Jennerstown back in 2006 with the Pro Cup
Series. He hopes that
despite limited experience on the 1/2-mile surface that the Hoosier
State can continue their early season reign along with his son J.P.
and Midvale first-time winners Trent Gossar and Stephen Cox.
Virginia cannot be counted out as five-time Jennerstown winner Codie
Rohrbaugh will be splitting driving duties with his grandfather
in the No. 7 Grant County Mulch Inc. Chevrolet.
The Harrison family has always been strong no matter what
track they head to, but Harvey, Brian, and Brandon each will be
searching for their first Jennerstown win at one of their favorite
track configurations. In
addition, Petersburg’s Brent Nelson looks to turn around a dismal
beginning of the season in his beautifully prepared No. 80 Airtek
Inc. / Precision Auto Collision / Berg Construction Chevrolet.
In all, there will
be competitors from at least six different states ready to go on
Saturday. Mike Potter
returns from Tennessee after a pair of top 10 performances at
Midvale. Larry Wilcox
and Bob Schacht will make the trip up from the heart of stock car
racing in North Carolina. Long
Island, New York racer Ron Langdon plans to make his series debut as
SCSCS practice is
slated to begin at 2:00 p.m. with qualifying taking place at 4:00
p.m. The first feature
during American Racer “Night at the Races” presented by United
Tire will take the green flag shortly after 6:00 p.m.
Motorsports Television Productions crew will be on hand once again
filming the full Super Cup Stock Car Series season and producing
nationally televised broadcasts scheduled to be shown on MAVTV at a
later date to be announced.
