Statesville, North Carolina (October 29, 2019) – The initial pieces to the 2020 puzzle are coming together only a few short weeks after the 12th season of Super Cup Stock Car Series action concluded. Two perennial mainstays that have provided a great amount of support and excitement over the years are once again committed to two events each on the schedule.
Much like 2019, next year will begin and end at Thornburg, Virginia’s Dominion Raceway. The entertainment complex will be celebrating its fifth full season of racing on the 4/10-mile oval, hosting the SCSCS since 2017 and before that at the previously operated Old Dominion Speedway a couple times. The multi-use facility also features a 2-mile road course, karting and drag racing layouts, live concerts at the Groove Music Hall, and community events at the 118 Bar and Grill; all venues on the same property often intersecting with race weekends.
The entire Dominion staff and SCSCS officials greatly enjoy the association that has become established and both are pleased to make this announcement toward continuing to build upon past success.
“It’s a real honor to work with (Director of Competition) Joe Schmaling and his team at SCSCS,” facility co-owner and promoter Steve Britt stated. “They are seasoned promoters just like us and they work extra hard to keep their car counts strong and bring great racing action to the tracks that they visit each year. We are already super excited about 2020 and look forward to all of the Super Cup teams being back with us for their opener on May 2, 2020.”
The final event of the championship series will take place on Saturday, September 26. Bob Schacht won the final race of 2019, his fourth at Dominion, and on that night added some positive sentiments.
“This is an awesome track. The people are nice here and (Steve Britt) is awesome. Good racing up here.”
Thornburg, Virginia and the surrounding area additionally offer opportunities for families to turn their stay into a vacation with sufficient lodging and dining options, state and amusement parks to explore, various historic monuments and museums nearby, and a short distance drive to major cities such as Richmond and Washington, D.C.
Pennsylvania’s Jennerstown Speedway Complex has renewed their dedication as a premier share of the schedule with two exciting summer events for the 3,300 pound, 600 horsepower full-bodied touring series teams. 2020 will mark the fifth year for the current ownership group, who have led a tremendous effort and realized commendable results revitalizing the 1/2-mile historic oval.
“The entire staff is happy to continue our great relationship with the series,” Bill Hribar, General Manager for the track, recently commented.
The always popular July date is back for a fourth straight year, falling on the 11th of the month next year. Jennerstown will also have a pivotal presence within the late season pursuit for points. SCSCS returns to its prior traditional August slot on the 22nd, the first of the championship series events in 2020.
With a host of outdoor activities in the Laurel Highlands area and its close proximity to Pittsburgh, the SCSCS is one part of the picture to put Jennerstown on the map as a destination for fans, drivers, and their families. The Must See Sprints, NASCAR Modified Tour, CARS Tour and annual Motor Mountain Masters Late Model events are all contributing toward that goal in 2020 and beyond as well.
Three drivers have participated in all 11 events / 22 races held at the facility since 2015, combining for six total wins. While Bill Ashton and Brent Nelson had their share of triumphs in previous seasons, 2019 finally put Kevin Kromer in the win column at the track not only once, but three times to the delight of the mass audience on hand en route to his first overall championship.
“It goes to show the fan support the drivers in this area have in this division and the fan support I have,” Kromer mentioned following his evening sweep last July. “I don’t live here and I don’t race here every weekend, but the fan support they give me here is just astronomical.”
With identification of the unwavering support in which specific facilities have shown over time, the Super Cup Stock Car Series has established in conjunction with each to formulate a Premier Track program. The intention is to build upon existing relationships for years into the future through various cross-promotions, which have become increasingly crucial for the strength and forward movement of both the series and its members.
