A whirlwind week in May awaits the TRUFUEL MUST SEE RACING XTREME SPRINT SERIES and BIOBASED.US MUST SEE RACING SUPERMODIFIED SERIES as they visit two historic Midwestern tracks for five events in a seven-day span in 2013.
First up is the TruFuel “Xtreme Speed Challenge” MSR SPRINT CAR SERIES and the MSR SUPERMODIFIED SERIES at Winchester Speedway with an open testing day and a fan friendly meet and greet cookout on Saturday, May 18. Racing is on Sunday afternoon, May 19.
Winchester is one of the most notable and intimidating racing venues in the world, serving as a perfect host for the lightning-fast winged sprint cars and the return of the supers after last year’s first appearance following a 22-year hiatus. Gates open at 10 a.m., with racing getting under way at 2 p.m.
On Monday, May 20, both series move some 50 miles east to Anderson Speedway, one of the fastest quarter-mile tracks in the world. The SUPERMODIFIEDS start off the week on Monday night, May 20, returning to the Speedway after last year’s inaugural Twin 50’s event. The WINGED SPRINTS are up next on Wednesday, May 22, featuring the Must See Racing 60, one of the most frantic races of the season. A full field of WINGED SPRINT and SUPERMODIFIED cars will do battle on the tight confines of the high banks at Anderson Speedway. Gates open at 5 p.m. with racing at 7 p.m.
The week is capped off in grand style with the 65TH PAYLESS LITTLE 500 at Anderson Speedway on Saturday night, May 25. Must See Racing is the sanctioning body for this iconic racing event. The classic event will see the sprinters remove their wings for the only time this season, competing for their share of one of the largest purses in short track racing. The Little 500 starts at 8 p.m. on Saturday, with practice and qualifying taking place Wednesday through Friday. Advance race tickets are recommended.
The TRIPLE CROWN, presented by Must See Racing, will award the race team that can win the Winchester feature, the MSR60 feature and the Payless Little 500 with the same sprint car and driver a bonus of $50,000. This brings the total purse and possible bonuses for the week of racing to over $250,000.
The events will be telecast nationally on a tape-delayed basis. Well-known broadcaster Rick Benjamin will serve as play-by-play host, while Hall of Fame driver Tom Bigelow will provide color commentary. Respected writer and broadcaster Dave Argabright will serve as pit reporter.
