The 2021 Engine Pro Fast Car Dash
OHIO FAN ROMICK WINS MUST SEE RACING SCHEDULE CONTEST
November 19, 2021 – Jarred Romick has never witnessed a Must See Racing Sprint Series presented by Engine Pro event in person. But that will change in 2022 thanks to winning the recent Must See Racing schedule contest.
MSR announced last month a promotion to get fans, drivers, and crews involved in the 2022 schedule before it was released earlier this week. A ballot of twelve events was listed and it was up to the contestant entrants to fill in the blanks and guess where and when the series would be racing.
Twenty-three-year-old Jarred Romick from Findlay, Ohio guessed nine of the events correctly to claim the first-place price of four pit passes to an event of his choice off of the 2022 schedule.
“I looked at the clues that Must See Racing kept putting out” explained Romick. ”Then I looked at past schedules online and kinda guessed where they might be at.”
Despite never having witnessed a MSR event in person, Romick keeps up will all sprint car racing in the area through social media and news websites. “I actually found out about this contest through the Pavement Pounders Facebook page. I’m mainly a dirt guy but I do follow pavement sprint car racing a little bit”.
As the contest winner, Romick will be awarded four pit passes to an MSR event of his choice in 2022.”I think we’re probably gonna go to the August 6 ‘Xtreme Speed Challenge’ at Lorain Raceway Park. I’ve never been to LRP” concluded Romick.
Joshua Sexton placed second in the schedule contest and will receive four grandstand tickets to a race of his choice while third place Charlie Schultz will receive two grandstand tickets.
MSR founder and President Jim Hanks added “This contest was a fun thing for the fans and race teams to keep everyone both engaged and informed about the upcoming 2022 season. We know our fans are intense and passionate, plus, this contest showed that a lot of them closely follow what’s going on.”
NEW TRACKS: LESS TRAVEL HIGHLIGHT 2022 MUST SEE RACING SCHEDULE
November 15, 2021 – Holly, Michigan – The 2022 Must See Racing Sprint Series presented by Engine Pro schedule was released today. A new track, less travel, and new teams highlight the series thirteenth season in 2022.
The thirteenth season will kick off April 29-30 at South Boston Speedway in South Boston, Virginia. It will be the first visit of winged sprint cars to the historic 4/10 slightly banked asphalt speedway. It will be one of possibly three new tracks on the 2020 MSR schedule. The series is finalizing the details on at least two new tracks that will be announced soon.
The 2020 schedule will be one of the most ambiguous in several seasons. The current schedule will see the series visit eight different venues in 2020 with seven TBA dates on the first version of the schedule. As details are finalized, and contracts signed, these additional dates will be announced.
The emphasis in 2020 will be less travel due to the uncertainty of the current economy. For the first time in many seasons the series will showcase several events in the state of Michigan where the series is based. Michigan events have been a rarity in recent seasons. That will not be the case in 2022.
Currently, the schedule shows six events in the state of Michigan beginning with the 2nd annual ‘American Speed U.S. Nationals’. Last year’s inaugural event was a fan favorite, ensuring that it would be on the 2022 schedule. Additional details of this event will be announced in the coming weeks.
Other Michigan dates include Birch Run Speedway June 10 and July 22. Lone appearances to M-40 June 24 and Berlin July 30 also highlight the schedule.
Jennerstown Speedway in Jennerstown, Pennsylvania returns to the MSR schedule for the first time in two years on August 27. The event will be host of the annual annual ‘David D. Mateer Tribute’ race.
Must See Racing will return as a promotional sanction for the non-points / special event ‘Pink Lady Classic’ at Meridian (Idaho) Speedway September 23-24. Last year’s event paid $20,000-to-win and drew nearly forty cars.
One of the biggest announcements was that MSR will be returning to a points paying championship format that will crown a champion in 2022. The championship chase was put on hiatus for the 2021 season due to the uncertainty of COVID. With a bigger schedule and more full-time teams committed in 2022, the timing was right to bring pack the points paying championship.
MSR officials indicated the schedule isn’t complete and additional events will be announced very soon. For schedule updates please visit www.mustseeracing.com.
FIVE VISITS TO LORAIN RACEWAY PARK HIGHLIGHT 2022 MUST SEE RACING SCHEDULE
November 9, 2021 – The entire 2021 Must See Racing schedule has yet to be announced, but MSR officials today announced additional dates from the 2022 schedule. MSR will return to Lorain Raceway Park for the third consecutive season in 2002. Both the Must See Racing Sprint Series presented by Engine Pro and the Maxima Racing Oils Must See Racing Midwest Lights Series will visit LRP nest season.
Both series will combine for a total of five nights of racing action at LRP in 2022. The Lights series will visit on opening night April 23. The series will return June 17 as part of the inaugural ‘Super Crown’ and July 9 for the ‘Comet Classic’. The series will conclude their season on October 15 for their season championship during the ‘Halloween Festival of Speed’.
The August 6 event will be the only appearance for the 410’s in 2022 It will also include the Midwest Lights as part of the 3rd annual ‘Must See Racing Xtreme Speed Challenge’.
LRP has been the unofficial home for MSR past two seasons. Between the 410’s and Midwest Lights, there have been no less than seven events contested at LRP. Of the five total MSR events contested at LRP in 2021, there were five different feature winners.
MSR president Jim Hanks explained his excitement for the series to return to LRP with multiple nights of racing next season, and in particular, the August 6 event. “We are really looking forward to the 3rd annual ‘Xtreme Speed Challenge’ at Lorain. Last year's race was one of the best of the year and our teams can' t wait to get back there. The fans do not want to miss this one with our 410 national series plus the MSR LIGHTS series both competing."
LRP General Manager Randy Maggio Jr. also expressed his excitement for the return of MSR. ”We at LRP are very excited to welcome back Jim, Nancy, Brent, and the entire MSR team and drivers back to our facility for another season. Between the ‘Xtreme Speed Challenge’ and the MSR Midwest Lights Series, the action is always great and the teamwork between the track and series is always on par as well.
The Xtreme Speed Challenge’ is coming into its third year running and I believe each year we have gotten the crowd better and the action, format, and promotion has improved. Jim and I always ponder ideas to make it bigger and better and we always strive to improve the show.
Personally, I believe the fans are very excited when the 410 ground pounders come to town. COVID hindered attendance in 2020, however, 2021 was a good showing and I suspect 2022 to be even better” concluded Maggio Jr.
