Resumes July 29th; Back Into Gear With Rescheduled Pulaski County
Motorsports Park Appearance
North Carolina (July 27, 2023) – The calendar may show that
2023 has surpassed the halfway mark, but when it comes to the Super
Cup Stock Car Series, the schedule in determining many of this
year’s winners and ultimate champion is far from over.
An unprecedented three of the next four weekends will see
competitors at some of the Virginia Commonwealth’s finest ovals.
resumes at Pulaski County Motorsports Park this Saturday, originally
planned to be the season opening event in May before mother nature
had different intentions. The
facility located in the town of Fairlawn will have momentum from
Thursday night’s nationally broadcast Superstar Racing Experience,
in which fans who bring their SRX ticket will receive five dollars
off admission on July 29th.
championship battle is quite tight after three checkered flags have
flown. 2016 champion
Harvey Harrison has been extremely consistent with a trio of third
place finishes. The
Renick, West Virginia veteran racer heads to the 0.416-mile
speedway, that at one time was his home track on a weekly basis,
with a point lead of only nine.
The driver that is
in second? Harvey’s
son Brian Harrison, who did not come away with the result he had
hoped for last time out a month ago at Jennerstown Speedway but
finished a best career second twice at Franklin County Speedway in
early June. Brian has a
past top five at Pulaski County with the series he has competed
since the close of 2008.
Virginia’s Brent Nelson got off to a slow start in 2023.
Nevertheless, a 16th career victory was achieved last time
out at Jennerstown, bringing him within 28 points of the top spot in
his hunt for a first overall series title.
Nelson has led laps before at Pulaski County with a best
effort in the end of third twice, in 2022 and 2021 each.
currently sits fourth in the standings, having finished fifth in his
most recent Pulaski County start, and will look to capture his first
win since 2016. Fellow
Pennsylvania driver Jason Schue is currently fifth in points and is
searching for his second career top five result.
General Manager will additionally make his series debut in a car
fielded by Ashton. Jeff
Roark has past experience behind the wheel not only around the
15-degree banked corners in weekly competition years ago as well as
times spent more recently working with the Rusty Wallace Racing
Experience, which led by Mark Ebert oversees the day-to-day
operation of the facility. The
Abingdon, Virginia native had several starts in the former Hooters
Pro Cup and NASCAR Dash Series and coincidentally the Pro Cup ride
he sold became Brent Nelson’s first car in his entrance into the
SCSCS back in 2010.
Motorsports Park grandstand gates will open at 5:00 p.m. with a full
docket of racing getting underway at 7:00 p.m.
