Mooresville, NC 10/2/13: The tight bull ring racing that Anderson Motor Speedway produces is what’s next for the stars and cars of the X-1R Pro Cup Series. The series makes their return to the South Carolina track after J.P. Morgan, who is undefeated in series history at Anderson, won the Back to School 250 in August. Morgan’s return to a track he is so dominate at is just what he needs after a poor showing at Southern National last week that allowed Clay Rogers to open the gap to 96 points in the championship series with three races remaining. West Virginia native Codie Rohrbaugh and Sevierville, TN driver Dylan Presnell both make their return to the series to mix things up for a win amongst championship contenders. With big money and championships being decided look for this weekend’s race at Anderson to make waves amongst competitors.

J.P. Morgan is Undefeated in Series History at Anderson: The only driver fans at Anderson Motor Speedway have seen win in the X-1R Pro Cup Series competition is 2012 series champion J.P. Morgan. The Ether, NC driver won the series inaugural race at the South Carolina track in 2012, and earlier this season he had the best car, hands down, taking the win in the Back to School 250. Morgan no doubt will be the man to beat this Saturday night. The timing couldn’t be better for Morgan to return to “his track” if he has hopes of slowing Clay Rogers progress of capturing his fifth series championship.
