Kickoff at the “Concrete Jungle” On Tap for SCSCS Competitors
North Carolina (June 17, 2019) – The
only Friday function of the year for the Super Cup Stock Car Series is up next
as the teams and their 3,300 pound, 600 horsepower rides ring in the official
start to summer at Tennessee’s Kingsport Speedway on June 21st.
Thundering into the
“Concrete Jungle” ahead of the pack to start off 2019 are two drivers
separated by only three points for the season-long overall championship, in
which both are likely making the longest tow of any competitors.
The best Ron Langdon could do at the 3/8-mile oval last year was a sixth
place result, but the Freeport, New York racer has collected an incredibly
consistent record in the first six races with a trio of runner-ups and three
third place finishes. He will most
certainly keep focus on that trend continuing with maybe another step up on the
ladder and a trophy or two to bring 700 miles home.
Kevin Kromer did not end up
with the outcome he would have liked last June; however, the Walnutport,
Pennsylvania skilled series competitor has put the past behind him in
magnificent fashion. He will be the
only previous winner during the 2019 season that is entered on Friday and looks
to capitalize on an already three-win total in the first six races.
The two point leaders will
have plenty more to contend with during the Twin 50s presented by Patrick
Miller Photography. Ben Ebeling
swept the show in 2018. The
Hickory, North Carolina resident is driving for a different team this year, but
under the ShoTime Motorsports banner was a threat for the win last time out at
Shenandoah Speedway and the group is gearing up to get back into winners
favorite Mike Potter will certainly be a factor once again after capturing his
initial SCSCS Pole Award and leading many laps at Kingsport one year ago.
The current intention is for Jon Kerley, winner of the first race at
Shenandoah three weeks back, to serve in a crew member and potentially spotter
role for his longtime friend. Potter
additionally currently leads the South Division standings, which with Friday
being the seventh and eighth eligible races, will begin the process of the best
six finishes counting toward those points accumulated from April through August
to set the stage for the champions to be named in September and October.
Johnson City, Tennessee veteran will also be poised to acquire a first notch in
the win column as well as provide advice to teammate Nathan Archer, who will be
making his series debut after experience working with Potter Racing outside the
driver seat on a frequent basis.
Six drivers will join
Jonesborough, Tennessee’s Archer as making their first ever appearance behind
the wheel around the slightly banked concrete corners. North
Carolina’s Larry Wilcox searches for positive results in order to catch up in
the South title race while West Virginia’s Samatha Rohrbaugh would like
nothing more than a finish to match the performance she has shown in past
starts. Pennsylvania’s Jason
Schue makes a return after a two event absence and current top rookie Lauren
Butler sees the Kingsport facility for the first time. Hayden
and Landon Brothers were on hand last year learning all they could from the pit
stall prior to making their series debut a couple races later.
The York, Pennsylvania twins will get their first chance at speed on the
A quartet of racers, Bill
Ashton, Larry Berg, and South Division contenders John Miller and Marc Jones,
look to build upon the knowledge gained from the pair of 50-lap races in 2018
