Warren Stops Speedyman11 for President's Day Special Victory

February 18, 2019 – Buckley, CA…Rob Warren of Pulaski, NY was able to hold off a tenacious “SpeedyMan11 to win the Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS), President’s Day Special 75 lap supermodified sim racing feature at Buckley Speedway Monday night. SpeedyMan11 finished second .418 seconds behind and Warren’s season-long challenger in the SUPRS Gold Crest Championship XV points battle, Keith Powell, was third, nearly a lap back.

Becker Leads First Nine

Carl Becker, who has a very good finishing record at Buckley, brought the field down for the green flag of the President’s Day Special with Rob Warren to his right in the front row. Becker wasted no time establishing a strong lead, but had fast company on his rear nerf bar.

As lap nine clicked off, SpeedyMan11, who had gotten the jump on Warren at the start and was in second place, found a small opening, below Becker, to his liking and put his TMS Wolfpack #11 under the cagey veteran for the lead. Becker was having nothing of it, and refused to move over for the young charger.

Rob Warren then saw his chance as the top two banged nerf bars and dove to the inside of both in turn three for a three-wide pass for the lead. It was a position he would not relinquish for the remaining 66 laps.

Warren, Powell Points Race Goes to Billy Vukovich III Classic

Warren’s win was his ninth of the season, one more in the tally than Keith Powell. Powell came into the night 20 points ahead of Warren in the SUPRS Gold Crest Wing Championship XV standings standings, a total nearly cut in half after Warren’s win. Clearly, the title is still very much up in the air as the drivers head to Mesa Marin Raceway next week for the 15th Annual Billy Vukovich III Classic on Tuesday, February 26, 2019 where Powell is the defending winner of the race, and Warren a former winner himself.

Practice gets going at 8:00pm for this prestigious races that celebrates the life of the late Billy Vukovich III. The winner of this race becomes a guaranteed starter for SUPRS 15th Annual Summit Classic 125 at Madera Speedway in April.
