2019 SCARTS TC Cup - Playoff #2 - Road America - 10/9 21 GMT

PostThu May 02, 2019 2:51 pm

Image Image

The 2019 SCARTS Turbocharged Cup Series will begin on Wednesday, May 8th! This year's campaign is reduced to 12 races compared to 24 races in the past as it's the last planned Cup Series season. In 2020, SCARTS will run on a limited basis - perhaps some speciality Cups to keep the series alive but I will be stepping down considerably. It's been 11 years of racing and I can't thank you all enough for your participation and support! But, we still have a season ahead and it's time for Daytona - the 11th annual REItona 500!

As customary for our season opening race, a qualifying race (The SCARTS Shootout) will be run to set the field for the REItona 500 - but this year, we won't run the race on a separate week - the qualifier will be shortened to 30 laps and will run immediately prior to the main event. A short 2-lap ghost qualifying sprint will be held before the SCARTS Shootout to determine the 500 pole-sitter and rest of the field for the shootout as well as pitstall selection (stalls will carry over into the Daytona 500). The finishing order from the qualifier will then set positions 2 and back for the 500. Bonus points will once again be awarded for finishing order in the qualifier - 10 for 1st, 6 for 2nd, 4 for 3rd, 2 for 4th and 1 for 5th.

This race honors the past 10 winners of this race along the apron in the trioval. Only Shyguy has won the REItona 500 twice, and several current drivers still looking for their first win in this event. Will you be victorious? Join us on Wednesday, May 8th!

Dore became the 10th different driver to win the SCARTS REItona 500 in it's 11th running. He kicks off the season with the points lead as well after leading 39 laps in the race and for a strong 2nd place showing, behind Burnout, in the SCARTS Shootout qualifier.

Next up will be Martinsville Speedway this coming Tuesday, May 14th. Dore was the winner in the Spring race last year. However, due to this shortened season running tracks only once, the defending winner will be the driver who last won there (in exception for the REItona 500 and SCARTS World 600 as they are unique lengths). Burnout won the playoff race last year so he enters as the defending winner.

Come join us for our only stop to Martinsville this year!

RACE #2 @ MARTINSVILLE
======================
When: Tuesday, May 14th @ 21 GMT
Race Length: 250 laps

Burnout takes the victory at Martinsville Speedway claiming his first win of the 2019 season. He now takes over the points lead and joins Dore as eligible drivers for the playoffs. Watkins Glen is up next, our first road course race of the season - and based on our race from 2018, it should be another very competitive race especially if we get some road ringers in the field.

Mike Nike was the winner last year - his first SCARTS Turbocharged Cup Series victory.

Come join us on Wednesday, May 22nd @ 21 GMT!

RACE #3 @ WATKINS GLEN
=======================
When: Wednesday, May 22nd @ 21 GMT
Race Length: 66 laps
2018 Winner: Mike Nike

Delux became our third different winner so far in the 2019 SCARTS Turbocharged Cup Series @ Watkins Glen. He dominated much of the race but was seemingly not in contention at the start of the final lap being in 4th position, but the leaders all crashed and he was able to claim the victory he deserved. He now joins Dore and Burnout as playoff eligible drivers.

Next up is our oldest tradition: the SCARTS World 600 @ Charlotte Motor Speedway. This is our longest race of the season, a full 250 lap race on the quad-oval. Dore is the defending 600 winner and he has an impressive track record here, having a total of eight wins in all Charlotte races combined. Burnout is the most recent victor at the track though, winning the 500 km playoff race last Fall. These two plus Delux are looking to score more wins to get bonus points for the playoffs as only five races remain. There are still others who have not yet won, could we get our fourth different winner?

Find out on Thursday, May 30th @ 21 GMT!

RACE #4 @ CHARLOTTE
===============
When: Thursday, May 30th @ 21 GMT
Race Length: 250 laps (600 km)
Defending 600 Winner: Dore

Burnout wins a caution free SCARTS World 600 - his first victory in the race since 2012. However, much of the race was dominated by Delux. Burnout was able to claw himself up into a battle for the win with Delux after early mistakes in the race kept him well off the lead. Unfortunately, Delux slapped the wall with 2 laps to go giving the win to Burnout.

Next up we will tackle the Tricky Triangle, Pocono Raceway. The two races we have run on this newer, bigger track have provided plenty of action and lead changes. Delux and Arsen are the two guys to win on this version of Pocono - Arsen the most recent winner in 2018.

This track has become one of our most competitive tracks in SCARTS - hope to see you there!

RACE #5 @ POCONO
=================
When: Wednesday, June 12th @ 21 GMT
Race Length: 125 laps (500 km)
Most Recent Winner: Arsen

Dore won at Pocono Raceway after catching Burnout who attempted a fuel only final pitstop. The tire falloff was too great which allowed Dore to consistently gain on the race lead and take first place with a few laps left. Dore is now only one point behind Burnout for the regular season points lead, with this next race being the final race worth full points before the drop races.

Sonoma Raceway is up next on Thursday, June 20th, the first event held for the SCARTS Turbocharged Cup Series here since 2015. This track was one of our first road courses built for SCARTS and was a staple of the series for many years. Burnout won the last Cup race here back in 2015 (five total Cup wins).

We ran Sonoma a couple of times since then, most recently in the SCARTS Throwback Series, with Szymek winning the race by fuel strategy just barely over Burnout.


Come join us on Thursday!

RACE #6 @ SONOMA
=================
When: Thursday, June 20th @ 21 GMT
Race Length: 85 laps
2015 Winner: Burnout

Mike Nike ran his first race of the season and spent much of the race 2 laps down after early troubles but got the help of some late race cautions to put him back onto the lead lap. He had enough time left to get to the race lead and was able to hold off Burnout and Dore for the race win.

Since Mike Nike can only race in as many as two more races, his victory does not grant him a spot into the SCARTS playoffs. Burnout, Dore, Delux, Laf, and Szymek are now all locked in by virtue of their participation this season and are now only looking for an additional bonus point or two for wins before the points reset. Burnout & Dore are the only two left with a chance at the regular season points lead bonus (worth 3 points). Texas up next and Talladega will be drop races and with a four-point gap between them, it could go either way.

Come join us this Tuesday for our second event on the newly remodeled Texas Motor Speedway!

RACE #7 @ TEXAS
==============
When: Tuesday, June 25th @ 21 GMT
Race Length: 208 laps
Most Recent Winner: Dore

Burnout finds Victory Lane once again at Texas Motor Speedway for his third win of 2019. This victory nearly clinched the regular season bonus, but not quite. With a nine point gap between Burnout and Dore, Dore is forced to win and lead 40% or more of the laps at Talladega in order to possibly score enough points from his drop to tie or take over the points lead. Burnout however, would have to score 24 points or less to lose the points lead depending on how many laps Dore leads with a win. The likelihood at a drafting track to lead that many laps is not very likely, but if he gets enough help with pushing to keep the lead, it could make things interesting.

You never know quite what to expect at Talladega - it'll be the last race before the championship run begins. Burnout is the defending winner from 2018. Come join us on Wednesday!

RACE #8 @ TALLADEGA
===============
When: Wednesday, July 3rd @ 21 GMT
Race Length: 117 laps (500 km)
2018 Winner: Burnout

We ended up having a two-month break from SCARTS due to our championship contenders having summer plans. We will be back in action this coming Wednesday, September 11th to kick off the SCARTS Turbocharged Cup Series playoffs.

The playoffs will be four races: Richmond, Road America, Phoenix & Homestead-Miami. Richmond kicks things off with a short-track race under the lights.

Dore won at Talladega but failed to capture the points lead which allowed Burnout to claim the +3 regular season bonus for the points reset. Burnout enters the playoffs with 1006 points - 3 points over Dore, 4 over Delux, and 6 over Szymek & Laf. The four playoff races will consist of three races worth full points and one drop race at Homestead-Miami for those running every race. With the playoffs being so short, getting started off on the right foot has never been so important!

Dore won the most recent race at Richmond during the playoffs last year while Delux won the first race. Who will kick off the playoffs on the right foot? Find out this coming Wednesday!

RACE #9 @ RICHMOND
================
When: Wednesday, September 11th @ 21 GMT
Race Length: 250 laps
Most Recent Winner: Dore

Dore kicks off the playoffs with a dominating win at Richmond Raceway - leading a total of 246 laps of 250! He vaults to the points lead by 7 over Burnout going into our next playoff race at Road America.

Road America's victory lane has eluded Burnout so far since it's inception, so he will be looking for his first win here to keep his championship hopes alive. Everyone else in the playoffs are still eligible for the title but will need to put together three strong races to have a shot. Mike Nike mixed it up last year in this race so any road ringers in the field will add an extra level of urgency to accumulate the points needed to stay in contention for the championship.

Come join this Wednesday!

RACE #10 @ ROAD AMERICA
