SCSCS Schedule Features All Six Venues from 2021 Plus a Return to a
North Carolina (December 8, 2021) – The stage is already set
for a seven-month campaign to test the skills of the Super Cup Stock
Car Series competitors. The
2022 schedule includes nine dates at seven noteworthy venues across
four different states in which every track where a green flag was
flown in 2021 is back as well as a returning addition.
Much like it has
since 2018, the upcoming season commences at Dominion Raceway in
Thornburg, Virginia. Immediately
off interstate 95, the multipurpose complex has become a favorite
among fans and racers since being constructed less than a decade
ago. The April 23rd
date will mark the first time their weekly headlining Late Model
division joins in attendance the same night as the SCSCS, making for
a huge evening of festivities.
Three weeks later,
it will be off to eastern Ohio for the 11th appearance at the
3/10-mile Midvale Speedway. As
it has on each occasion, 2021’s event
featured close door to door racing on the bullring oval, but with a
slightly different challenge for everyone
following a repave of the corners.
In recent weeks, another coat of fresh asphalt was put down,
allowing for a few months for the surface to sit and cure this time
before the 2022 season begins.
The month of June
begins with an annual stopover to Virginia’s Shenandoah Speedway
for the prestigious Veterans Classic, collecting donations for
veteran’s charities, with the SCSCS and all local divisions
battling in front of the picturesque mountain backdrop and looking
to obtain a unique set of trophies.
Kicking off the
summer on June 18th is the second consecutive visit to
UMI Motorsports Park for the Keystone Twins as part of their
TeamCross Autocross weekend. Last
year the series was welcomed positively by the local crowd upon the
running of a 75-lap main event, the first on the 5/8-mile oval since
2015. Double the
checkered flags are up for grabs in 2022 which is sure to present
even more excitement on this particular Saturday evening.
up to start the second half of the calendar year will be a familiar
sight to many, the Jennerstown Speedway Complex on July 9th.
The 1/2-mile oval has been on the schedule since reopening in
2014 and is one of the closest track partners of the series, having
celebrated a milestone of 25 green flags taken by the field in their
final stop of 2021 to the Laurel Highlands of Pennsylvania last
continually been made to enhance the fan and visitor experience,
including installation of all new LED Musco lighting inside the
infield during the offseason.
Following a summer
break for teams and crews to enjoy time with their family, the SCSCS
gets back into gear on August 20th at Motor Mile
Speedway. The Radford,
Virginia speedplant hosted two events in 2021, the first ever for
the series and was well-received by each of the competitors.
At this point of
the season, the championship stretch begins with two return visits
to tracks that had already featured SCSCS racing action earlier in
the year. September 10th
will be the second occurrence at
Jennerstown with performance being the key this late
in the running. Then on
October 1st, Dominion is back again to position
competitors for the final run toward the various awards up for
Lastly, an addition
to the schedule on October 22nd will be a return to a
historic facility that several certainly are going to be looking
forward to. North
Carolina’s Hickory Motor Speedway, one of the first tracks the
Super Cup Stock Car Series visited when formed in 2007, will host
the Championship Weekend presented in part by Startown Carpet and
Floor Coverings. The
final races of the season will be run in conjunction with an
appearance by the FASS Big Rig Series.
The twin main event
format remains intact for the 2022 racing season, in which teams
will often be facing the task that comes with competing once in
daylight and once following sunset, all the while managing one set
of American Racer tires throughout qualifying and both features.
An optional date of
August 6th is being considered in the event of any prior
postponement due to weather or any miscellaneous factors.
Schedule, as always, is subject change.
SCSCS drivers and
teams have been showcased in front of a national audience on the
MAVTV Motorsports Network and associated viewing platforms over
recent years. That
relationship will continue in 2022 as part of a joint venture of
support from Trick
Shot® Sustainable Products and STAAR Trucking. Numerous
races will be filmed once again by Pit Row TV for production and
further detail will be forthcoming.
