Mooresville, NC 4/22/14: This weekend the X-1R Pro Cup Series transitions from having raced at the smallest track on the circuit to the largest as the series heads to the .75 mile Memphis International Raceway (MIR). The Memphis, Tennessee tracks, which use to be staple on the NASCAR Nationwide and Truck Series schedules annually, will be a bit of a question mark for teams as most have never seen the facility much less raced there.

Mooresville, NC 4/8/14- In just a few weeks the X-1R Pro Cup Series will go from racing at the shortest track on the 2014 season schedule, at the Hickory Motor Speedway measuring .363 miles, to the largest, Memphis International Raceway (MIR), measuring a whopping .75 miles in distance. It’s this transition to a track that is much bigger in size and speed than the series historically races at that has several drivers intrigued about the upcoming race weekend in Memphis.
While several long time X-1R Pro Cup Series competitors like J.P. Morgan, Caleb Holman, and Bill Plemons Jr. have had experience at “big tracks” like Iowa Speedway, The Milwaukee Mile, and Rockingham Speedway during the series “Hooters” days, the youth movement in the series hasn’t and getting an opportunity to hit the ultra-fast Memphis track has several youngsters excited of whats ahead for them.
Gus Dean, driver of the #56 Dean Custom Air / #MashOnIt Apparel Chevy, is one of those drivers who is glad to be going to Memphis in a few short weeks.
“Memphis is going to be a totally new experience for me. I’ve never really been on a track over half a mile so getting to get on track like Memphis is something I’m looking forward to. Obviously as a race car driver you enjoy the speed factor, so going to a track where we get to go even faster than we normally do is a bonus for me,” stated Dean, the nineteen year old wheel man from Blufton, SC.

Mooresville, NC 4/7/14- Late race entry Coleman Pressley took advantage of a fading Caleb Holman in the final six laps of Saturday night’s X-1R Pro Cup Series Catawba Valley 250 at Hickory Motor Speedway to score his first career series win in just his fourth series start. Holman was able to hold on to the runner up position and the championship points after winning the season opener at Southern National two weeks prior. Reid Wilson, for the second straight race, rounded out the podium with his third place finish in his #66 Bojangles/Cheerwine sponsored Chevy.

HICKORY, North Carolina (April 4, 2014) - - An impressive third place outing for X-1R Pro Cup Series sophomore driver Reid Wilson (@reidwilson66) in the season-opening event at Southern National Motorsports Park (SNMP) two weeks ago leaves more to be desired, as the teenage rookie sensation heads to Hickory (N.C.) Motor Speedway for Saturday night’s running of the Catawba Valley 250.

Mooresville, NC 4/1/14: After Caleb Holman continued his domination at Southern National two weeks ago the X-1R Pro Cup Series moves to the Hickory Motor Speedway for the second race of the season. Last year Clay Rogers did the clean sweep at the .363 mile track, but now with Rogers out of the picture it’s anyones guess who will take home the $8,000 check at nights end. Newcomer Matt Craig and Hickory Motor Speedway regular Doug Barns Jr. will both be making their series debut but are expected to challenge for top five finishes when the checkered flag flies. Series sophomores Reid Wilson, who sat the pole at this race a year ago, and Brady Boswell, who lead almost 100 laps before settling for second position last fall, should also be ones to watch Saturday night.
