Super Cup Stock Car Series Shifts
Focus toward a Banner 2021 Effort
North Carolina (July 14, 2020) – Often when weighing options
in life, a realization becomes evident where a decision has to be
made that is not necessarily going to fully satisfy everyone.
The Super Cup Stock
Car Series entered 2020 with an immense amount of momentum and
perhaps its most balanced schedule yet.
Unfortunately, right off the bat the first one-third of that
slate was wiped out due to health restrictions which temporarily
limited facilities set to host the series from operating altogether.
toward the summer months, tracks began to reopen on their own terms
in accordance with local guidelines.
Nevertheless, as a touring series with a vast footprint,
constant considerations have been required in the process of
salvaging a championship season.
Therefore, a month-by-month approach was initially taken.
Numerous plans have
to fall in place regarding various logistics not always seen on the
surface, including vetting obstacles such as unexpected travel and
availability conflicts. Appropriate
personnel, almost all of which volunteer their services on a
part-time basis, and race day details have to be properly assembled
well before the green flag flies.
Additionally, the current landscape, whether or not those
affected entirely agree with it, has the potential to keep select
key team and family members loyal to the series over the years from
being able to attend during an abbreviated and still somewhat
unknown short-term period. Given
all of the hours and days spent analyzing all of these factors, it
has proven difficult at this time to confidently put on a show
complete with what the series has become known for and the fans
As a result, SCSCS
officials have concluded to forego the remainder of 2020 and instead
utilize the summer and fall as a perfect opportunity to get a head
start and be better prepared to rebound for the ensuing year.
The majority of
generous partners have been informed and contacted with all
graciously indicating their ongoing commitment for 2021 and beyond.
The series wishes each of them the best as they continue to
bounce back from and overcome challenges being faced at this point
Competition, Joe Schmaling, is taking this downtime to actively look
over, simplify, and update the rulebook, which will be available at www.supercupstockcarseries.com
shortly. The series
plans to introduce an accelerated timeline for registration
submission and initial payment in advance of 2021.
The intention is to have the full schedule released around
October, and it will be heavily dictated geographically by the
supported commitments received.
Anyone with interest should relay questions to Schmaling by
calling (828) 768-3589 or emailing JoeSCSCS@gmail.com.
Next season will
still feature many anticipated storylines, plus much more.
Walnutport, Pennsylvania’s Kevin Kromer will look to become
the first driver since 2012 to repeat as champion and increase his
lead in all-time top five and top 10 finishes, Hickory, North
Carolina’s Ben Ebeling is focused on becoming the first driver to
win at least once in five consecutive seasons, Freeport, New
York’s Ron Langdon is set to resume his active streak of 21
straight top 10 finishes, and Uniontown, Pennsylvania’s Bill
Ashton wants to make his 50th consecutive start and ultimately
eclipse the current record held by Petersburg, West Virginia’s
Brent Nelson, who will certainly be back in competition as well.
