Is Set for SCSCS Championship Night at Dominion Raceway
North Carolina (September 28, 2021) – The scenarios have been
calculated leading into the curtain-closing Super Cup Stock Car
Series race weekend of 2021. The
overall champion along with various additional accolades will be
named by night’s end at Dominion Raceway, the third consecutive
instance in which the Thornburg, Virginia facility has hosted such
coincidentally since they have led the pack from the get go, the two
drivers remaining in contention for the championship split
the victories at the 4/10-mile oval when the season began in
early May. Ben Ebeling
holds a fairly comfortable 93-point advantage on Bob Schacht as the
field of competitors
will make their way onto the speedway on Saturday afternoon.
Hickory, North Carolina, is currently in his longest dry spell
between race wins (only four) over his SCSCS career, but has used
consistency down the stretch to maintain command of the points lead.
He will essentially need to finish in the top five, a feat he
has only failed to complete once in all of 2021, in order to lock up
his first overall title and continue a span of no repeat champions
on the other hand, has gone winless since mid-May, but Dominion is
the perfect venue for the Mooresville, North Carolina driver to
break that slump. The
2018 series champion has won on five different occasions at the
track in which the SCSCS has been visiting since 2017.
Every form of bonus points, which can be obtained by setting
fast time and leading laps, will be at a premium but absolutely
necessary to have a shot at earning his second title.
These two drivers
will also be dueling for one of the regional championships, which
will be decided at the conclusion of the first of twin 60-lap main
events. The South
division has only a 20-point separation, which could ultimately mean
a different result than the overall champion.
There will be
numerous more drivers on hand with their own set of goals to
Pennsylvania’s Kevin Kromer, for instance, has already clinched
the North division title but is eager to claim his first victory of
2021 at the same track in which he won and became the 2019 SCSCS
Kitzmiller has been the driver with the biggest hot streak as of
late, sweeping the night at the latest event at Motor Mile Speedway
and having not finished worse than second since the month of July.
The Maysville, West Virginia racer will be battling
Petersburg, West Virginia’s Brent Nelson, a four-time winner in
2021, for both third in the overall standings and the Mid-Atlantic
Nelson will also be
looking to catch fellow Petersburg driver Samatha Rohrbaugh for the
season-ending Hard Charger of the Year, awarded to the driver who
advances the most positions from start to finish on the most
occasions throughout the year.
A coveted spot
inside the top 10 in points is also up for grabs among a few
newcomer Dusty Silvers from Elizabethton, Tennessee currently holds
down the ninth position, but Pittsburgh’s Jeff Zillweger along
with Renick, West Virginia father and son Harvey and Brian Harrison
each have a chance at advancing their way forward in the standings.
All four of the aforementioned have never competed at
feature races, a First-Time Winners race will be offered to those
who have yet to win a SCSCS main event or previous exhibition.
Twin brothers from York, Pennsylvania Landon and Hayden
Brothers have been two of the drivers showing marked improvement
late in the season and are expected to be among the contenders.
Home state driver Jeff Thomas will present as well for his
first appearance at the track closest to where he resides in
drivers will basically be going for nothing else but their best
performance of the season. Stahlstown,
Pennsylvania’s Jerod Brougher has seen limited action in 2021, but
took home the trophy in a prior First-Time Winners event at Dominion
and also finished a career-best runner up in a main event there in
Pennsylvania’s Bill Ashton simply wants to turn a year filled with
hard luck around and build upon a lone top five finish or perhaps
secure his second career victory to close out the season.
Pit Row TV will be
on hand to film and produce the weekend’s festivities, which will
premiere on MAVTV Motorsports Network and associated viewing
platforms during the winter months.
