Return to Franklin County Marks Second Attempt for SCSCS to Commence with 2023 Season

 

Statesville, North Carolina (May 31, 2023) – Two weeks after originally anticipated, the Super Cup Stock Car Series teams and drivers are itching to get up to speed.  Saturday, June 3rd will kick off the 2023 campaign at a facility that once started the season, but a distant 12 years ago.

 

Franklin County Speedway will host the SCSCS for the first time since 2011.  The track situated in the normally quiet town of Callaway, Virginia, 25 miles south of Roanoke and 10 miles west of Rocky Mount, will mark another return home for a couple competitors who are some of the only ones who previously ran during the last series visit.  Not only that, but both have also won outside of SCSCS competition there before.

 

2016 series champion Harvey Harrison set the SCSCS track record and finished third the opening night of 2011, but his first triumph at FCS came at the age of 15 in a Street Stock.  The Renick, West Virginia driver then had to wait until 16 years later to visit victory lane in a Late Model in the early 1990s.

 

Harvey’s son Brian Harrison will also be back in competition at the track in which he took the checkered flag in a feature a few years ago.  His uncle (Harvey’s brother) Joe won multiple times at the track a few decades back too.  Brian looks forward to the series return to the speedway dubbed as the “World’s Fastest 3/8-mile Oval” featuring 22-degree banking in the corners along with banked straightaways.

“We are good to go for Franklin County Speedway,” Brian Harrison remarked.  “I grew up with (Langley Austin) who’s running the show now.  He’s a heck of a promoter.  We have a lot of memories there.”

 

The offseason has not been necessarily easy after issues under the hood sidelined Brian from Pulaski County Motorsports Park in August 2022 and Harvey from Dominion Raceway last October.

“Mainly engines and mechanical stuff, tuning up,” Brian Harrison indicated.  “We were working on that up until the middle of (the originally scheduled Pulaski County season opener) week.”

 

2023’s outlook for Harrison’s Motorsports is similar to past seasons, but Brian Harrison hopes a solid yet relatively uneventful performance this weekend can carry momentum into the following event.

“We’ll take it one at a time, but I want to go to Jennerstown so bad I can’t stand it,” Harrison, still searching for his first points paying SCSCS victory, commented.  “I’ve been so close (to winning) there.”

 

Saturday’s event, named in memory of longtime local racer Calvin Brooks, will be the first time various other competitors will be seeing the speedway.  Petersburg, West Virginia’s Brent Nelson was only in his second season in the SCSCS back in 2011 and skipped the FCS race that year.  He plans to be back in the driver seat after recovering from a couple broken ribs recently.

 

2021 series champion Ben Ebeling from Hickory, North Carolina along with Pennsylvania teammates Bill 

Ashton and Mike Senica have never ventured to Franklin County before and are hopeful for some first-time luck.

 

The most recent SCSCS race at FCS resulted in a new winner to the series, his debut in the SCSCS as a matter of fact.  Additional drivers will be expected on hand, joining Senica and Brian Harrison in that category of hopefuls.

 

Grandstand gates will open at 4:30 p.m. with a practice starting at 5:00 p.m.  Qualifying is slated for shortly after 6:30 p.m. with a full docket of racing getting underway at 7:00 p.m.
