Cup Stock Car Series Kicking Off Summer 2019 at the “Concrete Jungle”
Tennessee (November 26, 2018) – The commencement of summer carries many
meanings for families across the nation. For
drivers searching for speed in fierce machines, it signifies that racing season
is in full effect for several weeks to come.
When summer solstice 2019
arrives at 11:54 a.m. on Friday, June 21, the Super Cup Stock Car Series teams
will be in line to register and soon practice for an evening full of
competition at a Tennessee facility known as the “Concrete Jungle”.
are very excited to have the Super Cup Stock Car Series returning to Kingsport
Speedway,” track General Manager and Promoter Karen Tunnell remarked about
hosting the SCSCS at the 3/8-mile oval for a second straight year.
The Stiltner family purchased
the facility over the offseason, which opened as a high-banked dirt track in
1965, assuring that weekly local racing in the eastern part of the Volunteer
State will be alive and well with even greater things to come.
As one of the premier SCSCS
tracks, the inaugural Twin 50-lap events in June 2018 saw some firsts occur in
a few special ways. Local hero Mike
Potter from nearby Johnson City won the Pole Award for the initial time in his
series tenure with the top five qualifiers separated by a tick over a quarter
of a second. The entire field was
less than nine-tenths apart.
The racing action remained
close once the green flag dropped, as Ben Ebeling swept the night for his first
SCSCS wins away from nearby formerly-named Lonesome Pine Raceway in Virginia,
on his way to an eventual Southern Division title.
The 2019 running should be no
different with teams expected to have a couple races under their belts, setting
the stage for some to continue their strong momentum and others to attempt at
turning around a sluggish start.
the precise race format and added offers and chances for fan, driver, and team
participation remain in the planning stages, any businesses or individuals
interested in partnering for the event at the “Concrete Jungle” are
encouraged to contact SCSCS Director of Competition Joe Schmaling at JoeSCSCS@gmail.com
or Kingsport Speedway’s Karen Tunnell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
