Cup Stock Car Series to Begin and Conclude Its 12th Season at
Virginia (October 17, 2018) – The dominoes are already starting to fall
into place for the Super Cup Stock Car Series and its premier facilities in
preparation for 2019. The touring
series, which will enter its 12th full season of competition and features 3,300
pound, 600 horsepower full-bodied machines, is announcing jointly with Dominion
Raceway a partnership to host both the season opening and closing events in the
Saturday, April 27 and Saturday, September 28
will be the official race dates.
“We are excited and pleased to have the Super
Cup Stock Car Series return to Dominion in 2019 for their opening and closing
races,” track co-owner Steve Britt expressed.
“The Super Cup series is a really superb offering, featuring great
competitive racing and solid car counts. Our
fans in our market enjoy the competition and the no-holds-barred racing that
they are famous for. We look
forward to a long and beneficial relationship with (SCSCS Director of
Competition) Joe Schmaling and all of the competitors and sponsors.
We can’t wait to have them back again in 2019.”
Raceway and Entertainment Complex is a multi-use facility equipped to serve
fans and enthusiasts in many aspects. Its
primary utilization is in the form of motorsports via its 4/10-mile oval,
2-mile road course, and karting and drag racing layouts; however, live music,
parties, and community events are held at the 118 Bar and Grill venue on the
property often intersecting with race weekends.
Thornburg, Virginia and the surrounding area
additionally offer opportunities for families to turn their stay into a
vacation with sufficient lodging and dining options, state and amusement parks
to explore, various historic monuments and museums nearby, and a short distance
drive to major cities such as Richmond and Washington, D.C.
The Super Cup Stock Car Series made its initial
visit to the track, which broke ground in 2013 and officially opened its doors
in 2016, at the conclusion of 2017. Ever
since, drivers and teams have flocked back for a total of three more events
that took place in 2018. A return
in 2019 was already in the works midway through the current year.
identification of the unwavering support in which certain facilities have shown
over time, the Super Cup Stock Car Series has been actively exploring in
conjunction with each to formulate a Premier Track program. The
intention is to build upon existing relationships for years beyond through
various cross-promotions, which have become increasingly pivotal for the
strength and forward movement of both the series and its members.
Long-term associations with Ohio’s Midvale
Speedway and Pennsylvania’s Jennerstown Speedway have been realized with an
established following and impressive attendance at each SCSCS outing, proof
that continual efforts will see a positive outcome for relative newcomers to
the schedule like Dominion Raceway, Tennessee’s Kingsport Speedway, and any
potential future facilities that display interest in coming on board.
“We’re in the process of partnering with
tracks to promote everyone at the same time as Premier Tracks,” Joe Schmaling
stated. “Although results take
time, MAVTV has offered a platform to expand our presence in the racing world
that is working for us, and working together with some of the finest tracks in
the country will be a win-win for everyone.”
While 2017 and 2018 saw the Super Cup Stock Car
Series test the waters with some special and non-points events to close out the
year at Dominion, it will be the site in 2019 where those in the hunt for an
overall title and other significant accolades will congregate for one final
bout on the track and ensuing recognition at the season-ending trophy
presentation during championship weekend.
While the precise race format and added offers
and chances for fan, driver, and team participation remain in the planning
stages, any businesses or individuals interested in partnering for upcoming
events are encouraged to contact SCSCS Director of Competition Joe Schmaling at
