Could Be Broken During August SCSCS Twin 50s at Jennerstown Speedway
North Carolina (August 21, 2018) – The largest field yet in 2018 is
possible as the Super Cup Stock Car Series continues along their summer tour.
The August edition at Jennerstown Speedway Complex will feature another
pair of 50-lap races this coming Saturday.
The cars and stars left the
Laurel Highlands region a little over a month ago with a mixture of highs and
lows. J.P. Crabtree went on a tear
after having to start July’s second Twin 50 at the rear due to a mechanical
issue that resulted in the brakes failing the race before.
The convincing victory does not mean there is any easy relaxation in the
Muncie, Indiana shop during the days leading up to the next one.
The No. 42 USA Tire / J.R.'s Landscaping / Stagger Pros / Support The
Troops / Don Gnat Racing Ford is undergoing some changes to the setup in hopes
of improving even more upon past performances.
Crabtree is also aware that
many will be poised to narrow the gap both on the track and in the Northern
Division championship battle, which will proceed two more races toward
completion. Kevin Kromer currently
sits 49 points back and is confident that a solid baseline from numerous starts
at the 1/2-mile and a drama-free top five finish last time out at Dominion
Raceway can lead to a first win of the year or positive results in the No. 77
Lehigh Valley Cancer Institute / Mission R.A.C.E.R. / Warren Pallet / K2
Much like the Walnutport,
Pennsylvania driver, Ron Langdon led laps at Jennerstown in July and is loaded
for bear at the facility in which he has seen the most success in a year of
SCSCS racing. The Freeport, New
York-based No. 17 National Appliance / Langdon’s Automotive Chevrolet is only
five markers back from Kromer in the Northern standings and will be sporting
new Performance Fiberglass Products front bumper cover and fenders.
Local favorites Bill Ashton and Jeff Zillweger round out the top five
and are always factors at one of their home tracks.
Meanwhile, Mooresville, North
Carolina’s Bob Schacht could match or even surpass a series record if the
right breaks were to go his way. If
the current overall points leader were to set fast time for the fifth time it
would tie for the most pole awards won in a single season.
If the five-time 2018 race winner happened to sweep the night’s races
it would set a new mark for most wins in one year, at the moment held by Tyler
Nuckles with a total of six during his championship season in 2009.
The No. 75 Engineered Compenents / Bob Schacht Motorsports Chevrolet won
the pole and the first Twin 50 back in July.
will not be a simple feat by any means with additional competition working as
hard as ever to achieve further success. Mike
Potter turned in his two best career SCSCS results and led several laps in the
most recent Jennerstown races. Brent
Nelson is back on his game after contending for the win at Dominion.
Toby Grynewicz and Andrew Kostelnik were able to adapt quickly in their
first series starts in the July running. 2014
champion JJ Pack is slated to return in a driver role at Jennerstown for the
first time in three years and Southern Division leader Ben Ebeling is
considering making the trip north. John
Komarinski, Lauren Butler, and Jason Schue continue to steadily improve as
All of the aforementioned
components combine to make this weekend’s races more than likely feature the
closest competition seen so far in 2018.
Another tight battle is for
the season-long Charlie Canterbury Hard Charger Award.
There is a three-way dead heat between series rookie Marc Jones, Ron
Langdon, and Mike Potter, all who are expected to be in attendance at
Jennerstown and have received the honors twice in 2018 after eight races.
In addition to an often crucial five bonus points being handed out to
the driver who moves up the most positions from start to finish in each race,
the driver with the most awards at the conclusion of the year receives a plaque
for their accomplishment. Being
fast is always the end goal, but this special award definitely can throw in an
element of strategy.
One final record that will be
broken once the green flag flies is the total number of drivers who have
participated in at least one race in a given season.
Scottdale, Pennsylvania’s Jerod Brougher will be back and ready to go
after nearly a year away from the race track.
The 2017 Top Performing Rookie’s latest appearance ended in victory
lane, taking the checkered flag first in a non-winners dash at Dominion Raceway
14-year-old Landon Brothers
will officially become the 36th different starter, joining his Mount Wolf,
Pennsylvania twin brother Hayden Brothers, who made his debut two weeks back at
Dominion before the rains came. Landon
is scheduled to qualify and race the No. 27 EHB Logistics / VFW Post 2493 /
Brothers Leasing Company / Brothers Brothers Racing Team Chevrolet in the first
50-lap event while Hayden will take the wheel in the second.
Practice is slated to begin at
2:00 p.m. with qualifying taking place at 5:00 p.m.
The first of the Super Cup Stock Car Series Twin 50s at Jennerstown
Speedway will take the green flag shortly after 6:00 p.m. with an autograph
session behind the grandstands for fans to meet their favorite drivers between
Most recent Jennerstown winner
J.P. Crabtree will be doing a SCSCS_Racing Instagram
‘takeover’ on race day for something new that fans on their phones in the
stands and those not able to make the trip will certainly want to check out.
