Seek to Keep Momentum Rolling as Quaker Drive Thru powers the
Midvale SCSCS Twin 50s presented by Swearingen Bat Company
North Carolina (May 11, 2022) – There
were a few Super Cup Stock Car Series racers who did not necessarily
start off on the best foot, mostly due to circumstances outside
their own control, at Dominion Raceway.
On the other hand, there were some who left Virginia rather
satisfied. For both
scenarios, it will be a new day of racing in Ohio this Saturday at
Midvale Speedway to capitalize upon.
Another new layer,
in more ways than one, could be the potential for faster speeds on
the 3/10-mile oval for the 2022 edition.
Almost immediately prior to the track’s season opener last
year, fresh asphalt was applied to the corners.
When the SCSCS visited in May 2021, a new track record of
14.416 seconds was set. During
the most recent offseason, a second coat was applied earlier on,
providing more weeks to cure this time around before any action took
place on the track surface.
the upcoming event, Jason Kitzmiller proved to be the early
frontrunner for the 2022 title, winning both 60-lap features at
Dominion Raceway. Multiple
members of the CR7 Motorsports team have previously been present in
Midvale victory lane with drivers Larry Berg and Stephen Cox behind
the wheel. Nevertheless,
misfortune ended their night in 2021 rather quickly.
“We’d like to
redeem ourselves there,” the Maysville, West Virginia driver
indicated. “We had a
decent car last year and qualified third or fourth, but 10 laps into
the race we lost an oil line so we never really got to race
made sure to mention the fan-friendly festivities that the staff of
the facility always offers, whether it’s an autograph session with
the drivers or something else for the younger enthusiasts.
forward to it and they put on a great show.
I remember last year with the Frisbee toss for the kids, it
was really cool.”
enough, Kitzmiller is the only driver in the current top five
standings that has yet to win at the next venue.
Drivers such as Brent Nelson from Petersburg, West Virginia
Kevin Kromer both prevailed through an up-and-down weekend at
Dominion with a pair of top five results, and six years ago it was
Nelson who had a banner night in Eastern Ohio taking the win.
Kromer has two wins, including the first of his SCSCS career
in 2011, at Midvale and the 2019 champion will certainly be looking
to rekindle such an accomplishment.
Rounding out the
top five at the moment is a driver who is coming off one of, if not,
the most uncharacteristically challenging results in his time with
the series, but has an encouraging immediate history when it comes
to the most recent Midvale main event in May of last year.
Hickory, North Carolina’s Ben Ebeling was sidelined early
in the second race at Dominion due to transmission troubles, but
intends to be a threat to rebound and potentially secure another
series trophy or two as well as another special prize the night’s
presenting sponsor has stepped up to offer for the second straight
competitors will also be making the effort to conquer one of two
customized baseball bat trophies provided by Swearingen Bat Company
out of Toronto, Ohio. The
unique awards will ultimately have each winning driver’s name
engraved along with the Super Cup Stock Car Series and the title of
Midvale Race Winner.
