Extends Condolences to the Knuckles Family
North Carolina (November 21, 2013) - The
SCSCS family wishes to extend their condolences to the Knuckles
family in the passing of former Columbus Motor Speedway owner, Jim
Knuckles on November 19th.
Following the inheritance of the 1/3
mile oval in 1965, Jim Knuckles and his wife Bobbie had owned and
operated the speedway until selling the track to son Jerry, Jeff and
John in 2008. Remaining
true to his dedication to racing, it was reported that in spite of
illness, the 85 year old Knuckles continued to work daily at the 1/3
mile oval until shortly before his passing.
The Knuckles family and their
Columbus Motor Speedway have been a long time motorsports fixture in
the Columbus area. The Knuckles family and olumbus
Motor Speedway has also been an integral part of the SCSCS since
it's beginning. The 2009 SCSCS season saw a dominating
performance by Jim's grandson Tyler scoring 6 wins in route to the
Brent Nelson Hoping to Ride Winning
Momentum into the New Season
North Carolina (November 15, 2013) - Petersburg, West Virginia
was well represented during 2013, namely because veteran driver
Brent Nelson claimed his first career Super Cup Stock Car Series
victory in the final event.
“It was a huge highlight.
I’ve got bragging rights for eight months,” said Nelson,
who remains excited over the time between the final race of 2013 at
Motordrome Speedway and the first race of 2014.
It has been a long road to victory
for Nelson. An
appearance at nearby Shenandoah Speedway in late 2009 got him hooked
once again when he felt that he could afford to get back behind the
wheel, and in the middle of 2010 made his first series start.
“I got out of racing in 2003 and
sold everything right down to the tools.
I had nothing once I started in Super Cup.
It has been a huge learning curve,” noted Nelson.

Zillweger Reflects on First Full Super Cup Season, Looks Ahead to
North Carolina (October 15, 2013) - The Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania driver
had years of Street Stock experience and a couple of Super Cup
Car Series starts under him coming into 2013, but
made his first appearance in his own
equipment during the season
opener at Shenandoah Speedway.
The first half of the season had its
struggles getting used to the car with a best finish of tenth, but
the team turned the corner at Ona Speedway where they ran as high as
fourth and finished a season best sixth.
“Going into Ona we were a little
leery, but that was my best race.
It felt like a win.”
Much of their success at that event
could be attributed to the knowledge of former champion and Super
Cup winner at that track, Harvey Harrison.
“Harvey gave us ten minutes of his
time and input to help get better.”
His main goals for the season were to
improve, keep the car in one piece, and finish top ten in points;
all of which were accomplished.
Now the focus is on the 2014 season.
