SUPRS Racers Going on NASCAR Heat Blind Date

December 6, 2019 - Goshen, IN...The racers of the Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS), head into the unknown as the 2019-20 Empire State Super Series, (ESS), Regional Tour is a NASCAR Heat wing supermodified Blind Date night. And like a real blind date, the drivers don’t know exactly what to expect.

A Championship within a Championship

The Empire State Super Series, (ESS), is composed of anywhere between three to six races stretched out over a period of one year and two SUPRS Gold Crest Seasons. All of the races are run at tracks in the state of New York, and each time a driver competes in an ESS event he accrues points for the Regional Tour Championship as well as for the SUPRS Gold Crest Wing Season Championship.

Of those three to six races that generally make up the annual ESS Regional Tour, one has always been a SUPRS Blind Date Night, where one of three tracks will be chosen just before the race.

This interesting twist has been a SUPRS tradition since the beginning of the sanction and, like real blind dates where you never know how things will turn out, it’s been a fun event that some drivers loathe and other drivers love.

Blind Date Night Options

Just like always, each of the three track options for SUPRS Blind Date Night are unique and challenging in their own way. All of the options this season are once again, NASCAR Heat tracks built by Mike Jackson.

The first option is the very tricky Andover Speedway. This quarter-mile, high-banked fictional track has corners where drivers dive down in at high-speed, slamming the low slung roadsters to the ground. They have to dodge the buried tires in the infield then drive back up out of the corners. Each time they do, the walls come up quick and they’ll have to master the bumps on corner exit as well.

The second potential track for Blind Date Night is Diamond Speedway. This big, wide ½ mile speed plant is another fictional track and is located in Diamond, NY. With 2 degrees of banking, but a very wide racing surface, this is seems like an easy track to conquer on first glance. Yet, the tricky, off-camber and uphill turn four is treacherous, throws the cars towards the front-stretch wall and could easily prove to be a lot harder to get around than initial appearances.

Finally, Marlboro Speedway is the third track that could be drawn for Blind Date Night. Like Diamond, Marlboro Speedway is a slightly-banked half-mile that’s nearly flat with only 2 degrees of banking. With wide straights and long sweeping turns, the drivers are turning nearly as long as they are going straight each lap they turn on this picturesque speedway.

The SUPRS racers have never had a race date at any of this season’s potential tracks. So, regardless of which track is drawn out of the hat, there will be a track record set in Time Trials and someone will go into SUPRS history as the first winner at the selected speed venue.

A SUPRS HeatFinder.net Supermodified Challenge Race

Like all NASCAR Heat races on the SUPRS schedule this year, the ESS Blind Date Night is part of the SUPRS/HeatFinderSupermodified Challenge.

This race is open to any driver that has registered as a website user at SUPRS.net, has the SUPRS W v6 modification, and all three tracks.
