in store for SCSCS Wild Card Inaugural Appearance at Southern National
North Carolina (May 14, 2019) – The first event of the year has been in
the books for more than two weeks, giving fans and competitors the time to
process what to expect for the 2019 season.
Nevertheless, this weekend’s Super Cup Stock Car Series Twin 50s at
Southern National Motorsports Park is only the beginning of what is to come;
setting the stage for a probable shake-up atop the leaderboard after all is
said and done.
of the five drivers that accumulated the most points at Dominion Raceway will
be unable to make the first journey for the series since 2011 to the state of
North Carolina, meaning all kinds of jockeying in the positioning amid the
upper echelon of contention are expected. Not
only that, but there are a couple other major wildcard factors playing their
Only one driver currently
confirmed for this weekend’s event, Denver, North Carolina’s Larry Wilcox,
has previously competed in the 3,300 pound, 600 horsepower stock cars on the
4/10-mile oval surface. That was in
a Pro Cup car more than 10 years ago. The
remainder of talent will have a short window to figure out the nuances

A majority will likely adapt

Entering Saturday, May 18 with the most momentum are Ron Langdon from
Freeport, New York, Mike Potter from Johnson City, Tennessee, and JJ Pack from
Midland, Virginia. All three are
currently in the top five in the overall standings early in the season and
would like nothing more than adding a victory or two to their 2019
accomplishments. Potter and Pack
are also near the front of the South Division standings, which will award
points for finishes during each of the 50-lap features.
Pack is the 2014 SCSCS
champion but has not been victorious since the night he was crowned with the
title that year. Joining him among
those looking to break a winless drought of multiple years include Walnutport,
Pennsylvania’s Kevin Kromer, Uniontown, Pennsylvania’s Bill Ashton, and
Petersburg, West Virginia’s Larry Berg. Pack
and Kromer each led laps in one of the Dominion races three weeks prior.
A diverse quartet of drivers
have only competed in a SCSCS ride at either Dominion or Jennerstown Speedway
up until now and will be getting their first taste of branching out to a
facility they are seeing for an initial time.
Lauren Butler from West Mifflin, Pennsylvania recorded a pair of top 10s
in the last outing and twin teenage brothers Hayden and Landon Brothers from
York, Pennsylvania each achieved a best ninth place finish.
Samatha Rohrbaugh, granddaughter of the aforementioned Larry Berg, has
shown impressive speed but looks to seal the deal with her first top 10 result.
Jason Schue hopes to carry a trend of top 10 finishes to Kenly, North Carolina
while Mocksville, North Carolina’s Marc Jones, Miami, Florida’s John
Miller, and Front Royal, Virginia’s Edward Adams III will be searching to
turn their fortune around for their 2019 campaign.
The final of a host of Pennsylvanians is Fairfield’s Quincy Sponseller.
The multiple-time karting champion will make his series debut after
receiving the opportunity to get some track time in the much heavier vehicle
during practice at Dominion.

being at the track on race day, first SCSCS practice begins at 2:00 p.m. with
qualifying taking place shortly after 4:05 p.m.
