Carl Becker Steals a Win, Steve Callahan Dominates NASCAR Heat Portion of SUPRS North Carolina Swing

October 22, 2019 – Rougemont, NC …For the second year in a row, Carl Becker waited until the end of the race to steal a win at Dasera Speedway, while Steve Callahan dominated the first supermodified feature ever run at Orange County Speedway on the first night of the Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS), 16th Annual North Carolina Swing on October 22.

Becker Hits the Inhaler

After a last gasp pass on rookie Zach Sears, Carl Becker held on for the final two laps of an exciting 40 lap feature at Dasera Speedway. Becker was thrilled to win at the high-banked speedbowl for the second year in a row, but admitted that he was out of breath at the end. “I about fell out of the seat,” said the driver that is north of 70 years old. “I was plumb wore out, was breathing hard, and had to get up and get my inhaler.”

Steady Steve Returns and Wins


After missing most of the non-wing season over the summer because of work, and not being present for the first three races of the current season because of family commitments, Steve Callahan left no doubt that he remembers where he left off after a dominating victory at Orange County Speedway. Callahan, started from the pole and never looked back, leading all 40 laps in SUPRS first feature race to be held at the Rougemont oval.

Callahan’s last win came a little over a year ago and some 59 races back at New River Valley Speedway in a 50 lap contest. Callahan likened his success at Orange County to that he has experienced at New River Valley. “This track is a lot like New River Valley and that’s a momentum track,” said the CPR Motorsports driver. “I really like both tracks and this one just seemed to suit my style. If feels good to be back.”
