Two: SCSCS Championship
Series Rounds 3 & 4 Set for Dominion on Saturday, October 8th
North Carolina (October 5, 2022) – Five months can feel like
an eternity ago while for others seems like yesterday.
For current Super Cup Stock Car Series point leader Jason
Kitzmiller, the memories could certainly be the latter throughout a
long road for the 2022 title that continues on this Saturday at
At the season
opening Twin 60s in late April at the 4/10-mile oval facility, the
Maysville, West Virginia driver captured his first two of six wins
this year in what has been a season-long view from the top of the
standings. That does not
mean Kitzmiller has gone uncontested, however.
two closest drivers still in contention for the championship, both
from Petersburg, West Virginia, have found their way to victory lane
during the second half of 2022.
Brent Nelson is the most recent race winner nearly a month
prior at Jennerstown Speedway in Pennsylvania. He
looks to hoist that first trophy at Dominion despite having been out
front for a total of 74 laps and achieved a top five result on a
half dozen occasions.
Larry Berg won at
another Virginia track, Motor Mile Speedway, in August for the first
time since 2015 and was fast qualifier at the upcoming venue off
I-95 in 2019. His
evening was cut short back in April with motor issues, but has
accumulated nine top five finishes in the 10 races since.
may not have a shot at the pinnacle of the SCSCS honors, but among
them will certainly be those looking to secure a first victory of
the season or their entire career.
Ron Langdon last won at Ohio’s Midvale Speedway in 2019,
but his record at Dominion is impressive as well.
The Freeport, New York driver’s last six starts at the
track were top five finishes, five of which were on the podium and
his most recent two were runner-up results.
series champion Harvey Harrison from Renick, West Virginia will make
his second appearance at Dominion, searching to return to winning
form after leading the opening laps the most recent time out at
Jennerstown. Perhaps the
driver to watch most will be Hayden Brothers, who was inside the top
five in April until mechanical issues sidelined him.
The York, Pennsylvania racer broke through with his
career-best performances at the similar Motor Mile less than a
couple months back, including a runner-up finish where he ran the
fastest lap of the race.
On the list of
drivers making their Dominion debut will be Pittsburgh,
Pennsylvania’s Jeff Zillweger.
The experienced driver with more than 40 SCSCS starts should
get acclimated rather easily with the help of ARCA and NASCAR Truck
Series veteran Norm Benning by his side.
First of three
15-minute practice sessions will fire off at Noon with qualifying
taking place shortly after grandstand gates open at 3:00 p.m.
The first green flag for the SCSCS Championship Series –
Rounds Three and Four is expected to fly at 5:00 p.m.
