ISRA Supports 200 to Kick Off Chase

The ISRA POWER Series begins its 3 race ‘Chase to the Championship’ this Sunday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The event, The “ISRA Supports 200”, marks the second live streaming race for the series this season after the Daytona 250 earlier this year. The race, which will benefit the Wounded Warriors Project, can be seen live at www.webracingnetwork.com at 9pm EST.
The Chase this season sees a “no room for error” 3 race schedule featuring new tracks to the series. After Charlotte the drivers will have to maneuver the tight quarters of Martinsville as well as the high banks of Rockingham Speedway. ISRA veteran Mike Kelley leads the series after the final regular season event at Iowa last week. However, a schedule conflict will put series rookie and season long rival of Kelley’s, Nicolas Maynard, on top of the hill heading into the Chase. In Kelley’s absence drivers Terry McCuin and Dave Boden will be the favorites to battle Maynard for the series title. Both McCuin and Boden have been to victory lane this year and will need to return if they hope to compete for their first series title. Also, in the hunt are series veterans John Hensley, Barry Brooks, Doug Sigmon, Evan Ethell and Allen McEwen. Looking to play the March Madness upset roll will be series rookie Matt Murphy who despite missing 4 races this season finds himself in the last Chase spot after a stellar season of his own.Last Updated on Wednesday, 20 March 2013 20:56

Johnston Seeks 3rd Title as POWER Series Kicks off Season 5.
- Thursday, 22 November 2012
- PJ Losey
A lot has changed since the POWER Series started four seasons ago at ISRA. During its growth the series has seen changes in everything from race formats to even the racecars themselves. Through all the changes however one thing has always stayed the same, the 18 car of Tim Johnston battling for a title. The North Carolina driver wrapped up his second POWER Series title this past October and looks to defend it when the series season kicks off in December. If Johnston looks to repeat as the champion he’ll have to hold off the most talented group of drivers the series has ever seen. On top of the contenders list is no doubt Eddie Smith. Smith burst onto the scene last season and even though he only ran 15 of 20 races on the schedule, he was able to win a series leading 7 times en route to picking up Rookie of the Year honors. While newcomer Smith will pose the biggest threat to Johnston, Series regular Saif Faries will also be looking to add his name into the title mix once again. The Canadian driver struggled with DNFs last season but has showed in seasons past that his fast and sometimes fearless driving style makes him a constant threat when the checkered flag waves. While Johnston, Smith and Faries were no strangers to victory lane last year, three drivers who failed to win proved that with consistency they too are also title threats this year if victory lane can be found. David Boden used 14 top 10s to finish 3rd in the final standings just ahead of Johnston’s teammate and car owner John Hensley. Hensley himself picked up 15 top 10’s and used that consistency to grab his best career points finish of 4th. Finishing 2nd in points to Johnston last year was former series Rookie of the Year, Terry McCuin. McCuin will step into his role as the newest full-time driver at Hensley Motorsports giving Johnston two teammates who look to compete with him for the title this season. Also added into the mix this season will be Series rookie Sandeep Banerjee, a former competitor in the NASCAR iRacing.com World Championship Series. If full season sponsorship can be found, the International driver will be a title threat come the series finale at Rockingham. Like Banerjee, two-time POWER Series champion Toby Jenkins and 6-time POWER Series race winner Josh Williams could also make the title hunt very competitive if full-time rides are found in the series this season. With more than 18 past series race winners and 2 Two-time Champions expected to make starts this season, season 5 looks to be one of the hardest fought for titles the series has ever seen.Last Updated on Thursday, 22 November 2012 22:39

THE SUNSHINE STATE WEEKEND
Last Updated on Tuesday, 24 April 2012 22:23
The ISRA Power Series kicked off its third season this past Sunday with a trip to the sunshine state for races at Daytona Spuperspeedway and New Smyrna Speedway. 25 cars would hit the high banks of Daytona first for 40 laps of two car tandem drafting in the sun. Season 2 champion ,Toby Jenkins, wasted no time putting the series on notice by grabbing the openng race pole. Once the green flag dropped on the field, Jenkins quickly teamed up with series rookie Terry McCuin and set his sights on victory lane. Jenkins and McCuin would have to fight off the charges of Doug Heveron and his drafting partner Michael Shea early however. Heveron and Shea would eventually get around Jenkins and McCuin sending them back to fight off Michael Mill, Allen McEwen and Evan Ethell. The first caution of the race came out on lap 9, as Heveron would touch the apron in the tri-oval. As Heveron gained control of his car, Shea and Mill would go spinning behind him. On the restart, Jenkins and McCuin had no trouble pulling away from Heveron now as it would take a few laps for him to find a new drafting partner in Earl Latterell. At the halfway point of the race, the battle up front started to heat up with new players of Doug Sigmon and the four car team of Kingdom Motorsports flashing their horsepower.
