Superstar Racing Experience
VP Racing Fuels Returns for 2022 Camping World SRX Season
Jun 14, 2022
The second season of the Camping World SRX Series gets underway Saturday, June 18 at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida. Which drivers will be taking part in the 2022 kickoff?
Eight drivers have been listed as full-time entrants for the 2022 Superstar Racing Experience season. Those include Slinger SRX winner Marco Andretti, NASCAR Cup Series champions Bobby Labonte and Tony Stewart, Daytona 500 winners Ryan Newman and Michael Waltrip, 2012 Indianapolis 500 winner Ryan Hunter-Reay and 2003 Champ Car World Series champion Paul Tracy.
A staple of the Superstar Racing Experience has been providing opportunities for local heroes at the short tracks the series visits. For Five Flags, the opportunity to compete with the SRX superstars went to the driver with the best average finish during the PepperJack Kennels Twin 100s for the Southern Super Series and Blizzard Series.
That honor went to Bubba Pollard, with finishes of second and fourth in the two races. Pollard has won 24 Late Model races at the half-mile facility, and will get the chance on Saturday night to compete with some of the best racers in the world for another big win.
Three drivers who took part in SRX last season complete this weekend's field. 2013 Indianapolis 500 winner Tony Kanaan, NASCAR Hall of Famer Bill Elliott and Ernie Francis, Jr. round out the 12-car field. Francis, Jr. won with SRX at Indianapolis Raceway Park last summer.
