Bragging Rights and Incentives Up for Grabs in 2018 Dominion SCSCS Finale
North Carolina (September 26, 2018) – Several trophies may have been
awarded two weeks ago, but multiple accolades remain within reach this weekend
at Dominion Raceway before Super Cup Stock Car Series teams call it a year and
regroup over the winter months.
The main course being served up during the Duels
at Dominion presented by Racing Radios will be the extremely tight chase for
the Southern Division title. North
Carolinians Bob Schacht and Ben Ebeling have been on top of their game in all
of the four south-denoted races to date, each winning twice and finishing no
worse than third.
Schacht has a slight edge of five points on
Ebeling, and has never lost a race in which he has participated in at the
4/10-mile speedway. Ebeling has
also contended and led laps, and the Kingsport Speedway two-time winner from
June will be prepared to do so once again as the match between the No. 75
Engineered Components / PODS / Bob Schacht Motorsports Chevrolet and the No. 44
Startown Carpet and Flooring / SwannysAutoSales.net / Battery Specialists /
Potter Racing Ford could likely come down to which driver is ahead when the
first checkered flag flies.
With an outside shot are Stephen Cox and Mike
Potter, who would need both Schacht and Ebeling to have a really off night in
order to leapfrog them for the championship.
Cox looked to be on the fast track back into contention last time out at
Jennerstown, substituting the points earned for the race missed at Dominion in
April. Unfortunately, a still
undiagnosed problem caused the Indianapolis, Indiana driver’s No. 21 STA-BIL
360 Performance / Impact Race Products / CR7 Motorsports Chevrolet to snap
around while leading the event.
Johnson City, Tennessee veteran Potter has shown
remarkable consistency throughout 2018, but will no doubt be seeking his first
career win more than ever after being within inches on the white flag lap in
the final race of the night earlier in the month at Jennerstown Speedway.
With the points getting settled during the first
duel of the evening, bragging rights and a further tune-up for 2019's
appearances at the Thornburg, Virginia facility will be at stake for the final
feature of the year.
Coming to Dominion with momentum on their side
and only a goal to conclude the year with a victory at the top of their list
include series veterans Kevin Kromer and Brent Nelson. Kromer
locked up the Northern Division championship at Jennerstown and was impressive
in a recently purchased new ride. The
No. 77 Lehigh Valley Cancer Institute / Mission R.A.C.E.R. / Warren Pallet / K2
Motorsports Toyota will look to replicate shades of success seen when racing
his past car at a track the Walnutport, Pennsylvania driver has led laps at in
order to achieve his first victory since 2014.
West Virginia’s Nelson has won three of the last four SCSCS races in his No.
80 Royal Purple / Airtek Inc. / Steam Turbine Services / Precision Auto
Collision / Atkinson Welding Chevrolet and had also led the way at Dominion
during the most recent appearance in August.
2014 SCSCS champion JJ Pack will be returning to his home track in the
No. 90 ride he piloted at Midvale Speedway earlier in the season as well.
As an added incentive, the format for the second
duel of the night will consist of a race within the race.
A special trophy from Extreme Awards & Personalization will be up
for grabs to the highest finisher who has yet to previously win a SCSCS event.
Some drivers in the running have shown they can
contend by leading laps and finishing in the top five on multiple occasions.
Ron Langdon returns to the site where he has performed well but
certainly luck has not entirely been on his side.
The Freeport, New York racer hopes to parlay a fourth place run at
Jennerstown into a potential win for the No. 17 National Appliance /
Langdon’s Automotive Chevrolet this time around.
Series regulars Marc Jones, Jason Schue, Lauren
Butler, Larry Wilcox, and twin brothers Landon and Hayden Brothers will be on
hand to see what they can do in regards to accomplishing a respectable finish
and conclude their year on a high note. A
few additional newcomers to the series are also possible.
Sopwith Motorsports Television Productions crew will be filming and producing
all the action for future premiere on MAVTV.
Details regarding dates for these nationally televised broadcasts will
be announced at a later time.
First SCSCS practice is slated to begin at 1:00
p.m. with qualifying taking place shortly after 4:00 p.m.
A Meet and Greet with the drivers will be part of the pre-race
festivities with the first of the Duels at Dominion presented by Racing Radios
set to go at 7:00 p.m.
An optional open practice session will be
offered to teams from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Friday as well.
