A proud heritage, a bright future

The Victory NSS Series season four is in the books. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of a group of Midwest Nostalgia Super Stock racers and the support of great sponsors, series participation has exploded with more than 60 racer/members representing eight states. The series is made up of a very diverse group of period correct Super Stock cars. Drivers include both men and women, representing all age groups. The cars honor the Halcyon days of factory-supported Super Stock racing with the iconic brands of GM, Ford and Mopar represented. Included in the participants are legendary Mopar Hemi’s and Max Wedges battling Chevy 409’s and 427’s as well as Pontiac 389’s and Ford 427 wedge and Hemi headed engines.

For 2013, the Victory Series will feature six races. The racers are not just racing for the significant prize money at each race but also for points and the coveted Victory Championship. In the four-year history of the Series, there have been four different champions, all of whom were decided at the last race of the year. The series racing is so evenly matched that a “sudden death” run-off was needed in 2011 to decide a Champion.

The points championship prize package has progressed from a gold cup and a jacket in 2009 to a points fund of $2,500 in cash and over $5,500 in prizes for 2012. In total for the 2012 season the competitors battled for over $30,000 in cash and prizes.
