MOORESVILLE, N.C. – J.P. Morgan was honored as the 2012 Rev-Oil Pro Cup Series champion during the series awards banquet Saturday night at the Charles Mack Citizen Center.
Morgan was recognized for claiming his first series championship in 2012. During his championship season he won seven of 14 races, finishing no worse than fourth throughout the course of the year.
“We are a very close team and very dedicated. That means a lot, that is very important,” Morgan said upon taking the stage to accept his championship trophy. “I’ve got to really thank (Series President) Jack McNelly. Everybody really knows, but without him taking an interest in the series and taking it on, from that day he has not wavered one bit."
“I appreciate everything you’ve done Jack as far as the series is concerned. Obviously if it wasn’t for you wanting to make this happen, it wouldn’t happen. I want to give you personal thanks for that,” Morgan said. READ MORE

Series Set to Return to Rockingham Paying $20,000 to Winner
Mooresville, NC 12/17/12- Officials from the Rev-Oil Pro Cup Series are proud to announce the 2013 season schedule on the heels of a very successful “open house” event at the Charles Mack Citizen Center in downtown Mooresville, North Carolina last Friday night. The 2013 season will kick off on Saturday April 6th at the Dillon Motor Speedway in Dillon, South Carolina and feature fourteen total events with the first ten setting the stage for the annual four race championship series to crown a series champion.
From there the series schedule makes its first of two series stops at the Hickory Motor Speedway in Hickory, North Carolina on April 20th followed by a trip back to South Carolina at the Anderson Motor Speedway on May 4th. The state of Tennessee and Virginia welcomes the series respectively on May 17th at Kingsport Speedway and Motor Mile Speedway on June 8th. A summertime show on June 22nd at Myrtle Beach Speedway closes out the month of June, before the fans of the Southern National Motorsports Park in Kenly, North Carolina welcome the series for the first time of the season on July 13th.
The one question mark remaining on the 2013 schedule is Saturday July 27th as series officials are working on several different options to fill the date at a track that will be new to the series. An announcement in the coming weeks will give full details of the event slated for that date. Second trips to Anderson on August 10th and Kingsport on Sunday August 25th after the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Bristol will close out the regular season portion of the schedule setting the stage for the four race championship series. Orange County Speedway (September 14th), Southern National Motorsports Park (September 28th), and the Hickory Motor Speedway (October 19th) will all host the first three championship series events.
The highlight of the 2013 schedule comes at the season’s final event as the series joins both the UARA and the NASCAR K&N East Series at the one mile Rockingham Speedway in Rockingham, North Carolina to make up the “Classic 3 Championship” presented by The Richard Childress Racing Museum on November 2nd. Not only will the event decide the 2013 Rev-Oil Pro Cup Series champion, but it will pay $20,000 to the race winner making it the highest paying event of the year and the weekend.
