Nelson Rebounds for July Jennerstown SCSCS Sweep

Super Car Stock Cup Series
Brent Nelson and Stephen Cox battle for the lead at the start of Twin 50 No. 1

A mechanical failure in the first Super Cup Stock Car Series Twin 50 at the Midvale Speedway in Ohio had Brent Nelson feeling derailed.  Coming off a stunning 2016 season that saw him finishing as a runner-up to the champ, Nelson was ready to hit some additional high notes.  The hiccup in Ohio felt like a setback.  However, this past weekend’s efforts at Jennerstown have Nelson back on the horse as he took the pole, and ultimate victory.

Saturday’s American Racer “Night at the Races” presented by United Tire at Jennerstown Speedway Complex in Pennsylvania was not smooth sailing, however.  Several accidents kept tensions high.  Including one between Trent Gossar and  Mike Potter which ended with both cars being demolished.

Nelson had an easy time with the first Twin 50 of the night, but had to fight hard for his second victory against Brian Harrison who’s desire to find that first SCSCS win is making him a tough competitor.


“The second one I really had to work my butt off,” Nelson commented.  “Brian ran a heck of a race and I had to wait for him to make a mistake.  When he did I had to jump in and capitalize.

“It was fun and, hey, we’ve got two in a row,” Nelson remarked.  “This is a huge rebound for us.  We made the right changes and had to loosen the car up.  The car was tight in the first race and I knew as the night went on it was going to get colder.  All I can say is we made the lucky guess and it was right.”

Nelson’s competition in race one, Jim Crabtree Jr, earned a fourth place finish in his No. 63 Jim’s Automotive / Judy’s Apartments Chevrolet.

“First race the car was real tight,” Crabtree explained.  “We did free it up a little bit, but then we freed it up too much off.  If we wouldn’t have had that little altercation there with Brian near the end of the race I think we maybe could have gotten another second or maybe could have snuck in there and won.”


The SCSCS will be holding a rescheduled 50-lap event at Kingsport Speedway in Tennessee on Friday, August 4.  The day after, the teams will cross less than an hour into Virginia for the regularly scheduled Lonesome Pine Raceway event on Saturday, August 5.  Both races will kick off the start of the Southern Division championship in addition to the continued search for an overall series champion.

American Racer “Night at the Races” presented by United Tire will air at a future date on MAVTV and LucasOilRacing.TV.
