The Whistler-Pete Trenca Memorial Win puts SpeedyMan at Four SUPRS Wins in a Row
The Whistler Goes to SpeedyMan

August 6, 2019 – Oswego, NY…With six wins total, and now four in a row, there seems to be no slowing down SpeedyMan. His win in the Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS), 15th running of The Whistler was a close one that saw him holding off 2016 SUPRS Champion Keith Powell by just .238 seconds at the line.

The hotly contested NASCAR Heat non-wing supermodified 60 lap feature race had three different leaders with plenty of close racing action throughout the pack. Defending series champion, Rob Warren, saw his points lead dwindle further when he came home a distant third.

The driver of the TMS Wolfpack “Black Beauty” roadster said, "This was a great race. Another very competitive show. Thanks to SUPRS for having us HeatFinder and Mod Squad guys."

"We had a great battle up front. I was working the high side and we were three-wide. I thought to myself, "this isn't going to work, "so I tucked back in behind Brad, (Keysor)."

Keysor Drops Back
Keysor, who had led the first 19 laps was fighting to hold onto an ill-handling race car after getting some damage while battling for the lead with Rob Warren. SpeedyMan saw his chance and was eventually able to slide under Keysor to take second as Powell followed him through.

Warren, Powell Battle
The battle was then on between rivals Warren and SpeedyMan. "That 35, (Warren), was awfully wide," explained the winner. "I had watched what Rob had done on Brad to get the lead, and it worked for me to get by him."

The 18-time ARL champ tried to stretch his lead while Warren and Powell dueled for second and Keysor fell further behind. Just when he thought he was in the clear, Powell mounted a charge to the front after passing Warren. "The last 20 laps, Keith really came on strong," SpeedyMan admitted.

Championship Hotter Than Ever
The win, not only puts SpeedyMan one away from having the SUPRS Bounty placed on his head, but also moves him to just 33 points behind Rob Warren for the title. With only two points paying events left including the prestigious Topless! 200, the title chase for SUPRS 15th Gold Crest Non-Wing Supermodified Championship is going right down to the wire. The win also guaranteed SpeedyMan a starting spot in the Topless! 200.
