MSR at Kalamazoo Speedway May 28 & May 29
AMERICAN SPEED U.S. NATIONALS
AMERICAN SPEED U.S. NATIONALS MOVED TO KALAMAZOO
January 25, 2021 – Holly. Michigan – Must See Racing officials today announced that the Engine Pro “American Speed U.S. Nationals” has been moved from Lorain Raceway Park in South Amherst, Ohio to Kalamazoo Speedway in Kalamazoo, Michigan May 28-29, 2021.
The American Speed U.S. Nationals was recently announced when the 2021 MSR tentative schedule was released with limited details. The original concept of the event is to create a true national winged pavement sprint car event that will attract teams from all over the country for the Memorial Day Weekend. Memorial Day Weekend is key to the success of the event with the Monday holiday allowing non-Midwestern teams a travel day.
MSR officials indicated that in the coming weeks public Face Book and invitations to all recent winged pavement series sprint car champions and competitors will be sent out. It is hoped that the event will draw competitors from nearly every single winged pavement sprint car group in the country. It has been long overdue for a pavement version of the Knoxville Nationals where winged pavement teams can square off in a true national format event.
The move to Kalamazoo Speedway is seen by many as an enhancement for the event. Kalamazoo Speedway is relatively closer for west coast teams. In addition, the speedway has a larger seating capacity and a rich history of hosting high-profile open wheel events. MSR officials indicated the move to Kalamazoo will be a long-term partnership with the track and this event will be around for a very long time.
The two-day format will begin on Friday May 28, 2021 with MSR Qualifying, Heat and Qualifying races and complete racing programs for the Must See Racing Lights Series, the National Compacts and local support classes. The following evening will conclude the inaugural American Speed U.S. Nationals with the MSR B-MAIN and a 50-lap $5,000-to-win final with bragging rights on the line to be crowned the first true national winged pavement sprint car champion. The winged Midwest Supermodifieds will also join Saturday’s buffet of racing for the first time at the speedway in nearly two decades, plus the Zoo Stocks and returning National Compacts.
The event will offer over a $30,000 MSR total purse with $5,000 going to the champion and $800 to start the event. It is anticipated this event will also draw a substantial media presence and a very sizable crowd. The national television cameras of SPEED SPORT/MAVTV will also be on hand for this historic event with a taped delayed broadcast planned for a later date.
SPRINT CARS SET TO RETURN TO INDY SPEEDROME FOR FIRST TIME IN 20 YEARS
Holly, Michigan – January 10, 2021
Must See Racing officials today announced winged sprint cars will be returning to the famed Indianapolis Speedrome for a unique two-day event including a $5,000 winner take all track record challenge, the “RUMBLE FOR THE RECORD” pitting the sprints against run what you brung late models.
The inaugural “INDYANA SHOOTOUT” will feature a little bit of everything for racing fans with the action kicking off on Friday June 4th featuring the Must See Winged Sprint Qualifying, Heat Races, Fast Car Dash and two 40 lap Qualifying Races plus the Speedrome Street Stocks & Jr Faskarts .
Saturday night June 5th will be highlighted by the “RUMBLE FOR THE RECORD” Track Record Challenge exhibition which will see a speed trials qualifying format with winged sprint cars and run what you brung late models in a battle to lower the all-time track record. With no rules in place for the late models, it is expected that several unique creative wing packages will be on display during the contest.
The Saturday night Must See Racing / Engine Pro Fast Car Dash Mini-Series points event with teams from across the country and Canada will feature the high powered winged sprints B main and 100 lap feature event plus the Kenyon Midgets, Champ Cars and the Figure Eight school buses.
In the Indianapolis Speedrome’s 74-year-old history, sprint cars have competed at the storied 1/5-mile paved oval only once. The long-ago August 11, 2000 Super Sprints event started 20 cars and saw Gary Fedewa take home, from his 8th place starting spot, the 100-lap victory over Rick Holley and Mike Ling.
