Mooresville, NC 06/18/13: On June 22nd the X-1R Pro Cup Series, formerly known as the Hooters Pro Cup Series, will head to Myrtle Beach Speedway for the fifth race of the season. The .538 mile track, located just minutes from the Grand Strand of Myrtle Beach, will host the 23rd Pro Cup race in the track’s history. Pro Cup veterans Clay Rogers (twice in 2006 & 2009), Mark McFarland (2008), and JP Morgan (2012) have all won at this track and will attempt to visit victory lane once again this weekend. In addition to the veterans an incredible battle for Air Flow Research Rookie of the Year honors is taking shape with Eric Gerchak (34 years old), Reid Wilson (17 years old), and Brady Boswell (16 years old). Gerchak, leading the rookie standings by just 24 points, will have to work hard at Myrtle Beach to finish ahead of the young guns and hold onto his lead.
