SUPRS News Graphic
October 4, 2020 - Goshen, IN...As has been the case for the previous 16 years, the Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS), will kick off it's 17th consecutive Gold Crest Wing Supermodified Sim Racing Championship with the Harvest of Speed, October 6 at LaPorte Speedway, and will use the NASCAR Heat sim racing platform to do so.


Winning Harvest of Speed is Hard

LaPorte Speedway is a fictional and tight 3/8th mile track located in Northern Indiana and it's been a mainstay on the SUPRS schedule since 2004. To say winning the season opener race at LaPorte is tough, would be an understatement. Since the first Harvest of Speed was run at LaPorte, two drivers hold seven of the 16 wins and a third has two.

Myles Maxon has the most Harvest of Speed victories with four, including three in a row form 2007-2009. Ray Sand, Jr. sits second on the all-time Harvest win list with three, winning every other year from 2011-2015. Bob Gangwer is the only other driver to have one more than one Harvest of Speed, and is the only driver other than Maxon to have won the challenging race back to back. Gangwer hauled in the Harvest of Speed in 2016 & 2017. won it.

Harvest of Speed First of Many NASCAR Heat Dates

The Harvest of Speed is the first of 15 NASCAR Heat dates on the challenging and diverse 2020-21 schedule that has a total of 41 races. The Harvest of Speed also kicks off the SUPRS/HeatFinder.net Supermodified Challenge. The SUPRS/HeatFinder.net Supermodified Challenge keeps points on all the NASCAR Heat feature races and is free and open to the public as long as drivers have registered on SUPRS website and joined SUPRS at the Silver Crest level.


First Race of Indyana Supermod Challenge

This year’s Harvest of Speed is also the first race of the Indyana Supermod Challenge, a multi-race, season-long mini-series that also includes races at Indianapolis Raceway Park.

With all the marks in the win column at LaPorte Speedway it should come as no surprise that SUPRS champions Myles Maxon and Ray Sand, Jr. also have the most Indyana Supermod Challenge Championships with Maxon having six and Sand, Jr. three. Rob Warren is the defending ISC Champion.

The overall Indyana Supermod Challenge Champion will be awarded 10 SUPRS Gold Crest Wing Championship points and receive a five-pound bag of Yoder’s award-winning Indiana popcorn.
