Skyland, North Carolina – Fans will now have the opportunity to see the Super Cup Stock Car Series kick off the 2015 season free of charge. CNB Bank Raceway Park track owner Tim Bainey Jr. and family have announced that they will open the gates for all visitors who wish to check out the Clearfield, Pennsylvania facility on Saturday, May 2.
“We have some great partners and sponsors at the CNB Bank Raceway Park. I met with several of them and talked it over with my family and we decided to make the first event of the season on us,” Bainey said in a recent track release.
“The only way for our sport to keep going is for fans to come out and support it; if the fans show up then our advertising partners will continue to help put these shows on and the drivers and teams will be able to continue to compete,” Bainey continued. “That is the reason we decided to give free admission to this first event. We want everyone to come out and give it a try – bring the family and see what you think of it.”
In addition, attendees are encouraged to pack food and beverages within the regulations that can be viewed at the track’s official website www.cnbbankracewaypark.com. Concessions will not be open the day of the race in a decision to keep any spending at a minimum at the track for this particular event.
The Bainey family began their involvement with the Super Cup Stock Car Series near the conclusion of 2014, with Tim’s brother Dan Bainey finishing in the top five in his first career start. They plan to continue supporting the series in 2015 and beyond.
“For the drivers and teams I feel like if anyone is going to invest money in an asphalt car this series is the best and most affordable place to do it,” Bainey said.
Series director of competition Joe Schmaling applauded their efforts in order to increase attendance at the scenic 5/8-mile asphalt oval in which most of the competitors have enjoyed racing at.
“This goes along with our series motto, because this really is racing the way it used to be,” Schmaling added.
Qualifying is currently scheduled at 5p.m. with the 75 lap feature set to go at 6:30p.m.; however, fans are welcome to come early and watch the practice sessions earlier in the afternoon.
A full race day schedule as well as race preview and other links to information will be available on the official web site www.supercupstockcarseries.com, Facebook at www.facebook.com/SCSCSRacing, and Twitter @SCSCSRacing.
