Sim Marketing Solutions Super Series – Super Late Models – Round 1 – September 20, 2018 – USA Int’l Speedway
Last Thursday night, some of the best short track racers on iRacing opened up the Super Series season with a 125-lap race at USA in the Midwest Powersource 125. 41 drivers attempted to qualify, before narrowing down the field to 30 cars to start the race.
Race Summary – At the drop of the green flag, Ty Spearman jumped out into the lead as the field would settle in for an 80 lap run to start the race. Spearman’s unique line kept him out front and he would eventually start to pull away, but in the later part of the run, Logan Clampitt began charging his way to the front as he was glued to the inside lane. Clampitt would make his move to the lead on lap 78 just before the caution flew a couple laps later. Clampitt would then hold off the field over the final 40 laps which included a couple of restarts, and he would end up in victory lane, sweeping the Contender and Super Series races at USA.
Race Winner – Logan Clampitt – Qualified 8th, 48 laps led
Top Five – 2nd Jimmy Mullis, 3rd Samuel Roush, 4th Joe Schaffer Jr., 5th Ty Spearman
Pole Winner – Justin Trombley (19.932 seconds) – 2nd career pole
