In 2020, arrangements were made for the popular Super Stock division to compete as a support event at three APC United Late Model Series rounds.
Contests were conducted at Sauble Speedway and Sunset Speedway, with the finale at Jukasa Motor Speedway.
In 2021, the class received backing from Qwick Wick Fire Starters for the inaugural five-race championship.
There are five Qwick Wick Super Stock Series events this season.
The Super Stock category includes a variety of makes and models from the ‘60s to the current year. The rules used in the class allow some suspension modifications and changes to the bodies. Some Super Stock cars retain the original steel bodies with plastic noses and fiberglass hoods; however, most use fiberglass body panels. They are powered by a modified small-block engines or crate motors from General Motors and Ford. The division serves as a ‘stepping stone’ for those drivers who aspire to compete in the Pro Late Model category.
A new restart procedure was introduced this year by series officials for the APC United Late Model and Qwick Wick Super Stock divisions called the 'choose rule.' On restarts, competitors are allowed to choose their lane. Their selection may be determined by the condition of the track, how many cars are ahead of them or the handling of their vehicle. If a driver changes their choice after the designated 'choose spot,' they must start from the rear of the field.
The second 2023 Qwick Wick Super Stock Series round was held at Delaware Speedway during the Canada Day Weekend. Drivers would compete in a fifty-lap contest around the ½-mile semi-banked asphalt oval.

|Former Delaware Speedway track champion, Trevor Collver, drove the No. 1 Inventory Express Chevrolet Camaro. Collver was fast at the season opener but had to pit in the race and lost a lap to the leaders. His home track would allow him to redeem himself. Collver started on the outside of the front row and made a pass for the lead on lap-5. He went unchallenged for the victory.|
|Carson Nagy took advantage of an incident between the leaders at Peterborough Speedway to grab the first Qwick Wick victory of 2023.

Chenoweth held the spot until the final lap when he was passed by Carson Nagy.|
