Supermodifieds to Invade Orange Show Speedway and Las Vegas Motor Speedway Bullring
by Gerald Laurie
Davey Hamilton’s Supermodified Racing League is set to compete at two racetracks over the weekend of October 1 and 2, 2004. The Offset Winged Roadsters will compete in San Bernardino, California, at the Orange Show Speedway on Friday, October 1. This will be the first time the exotic fuel injected land rockets have competed on the quarter mile banking on the National Orange Show Grounds. The SRL cars routinely turn laps in the high ten and low eleven second bracket on tracks of similar size. The same show will roll into Las Vegas on Saturday, October 2, to compete at Las Vegas Motor Speedway’s 3/8 mile Bullring. The SRL has competed regularly at the Bullring since 2000. The track record for the Supers at Las Vegas is in the high twelve second bracket.
Both shows will be a standard Supermodified Racing League event featuring two lap time trials, eight lap heat races, and a forty lap feature race. Both events will carry the standard SRL point awards and purse structure. Most of the SRL point leaders will be competing at both racetracks.
Point Leader Troy Regier of Dinuba, California will lead the SRL teams into this weekend driving the Carson City based S&S Motorsports number 98 Silsby. Regier has two wins so far this season. He is a two time SRL Champion and also has two WSMRA Supermodified Championships. He is also a three time Copper World Classic Champion. Regier currently has 432 points.

He drives the RPM Motorsports number 7 Hyder Hawk. Boise, Idaho’s Jeff Russell is fourth in points and recently won an open competition race at Chaparral Speedway in Eagle, Idaho. Jeff has accumulated 375 points this year in SRL Competition and drives the Out-Front Racing number 85 Silsby.
