Holly, MI – When the Must See Racing Xtreme Sprint Series (MSRXSS) visits Auto City Speedway on Thursday July 3rd, a lot is on the line for the race teams. The event will showcase a unique and new event format, a $4,000 to win and $600 to start purse and is the third round of the MICHIGAN MUST SEE SEVEN mini-series.
The July 3rd Auto City Speedway event takes on significant importance as the third race of the MICHIGAN MUST SEE SEVEN mini-series that awards race teams for the 2014 MSRXSS events held in the state of Michigan. Kalamazoo Speedway and Berlin Raceway will host the remaining Michigan mini-series events this year.
This will be the MSRXSS second visit of the year to Auto City Speedway. Jimmy McCune won a spectacular battle with Ryan Gillenwater and emerged victorious on June 7th before a huge crowd. Daleville, Indiana’s Aaron Pierce is ready to challenge the ferocious competition defending his 2013 event victory where race fans saw him spin on lap two, be relegated to the rear of the field, then put on one of the best shows in MSR history as he skillfully navigated through the twenty car field taking the victory. The “FIRECRACKER 50/50” promises to be one of the best short track events to attend over the Independence Holiday weekend.
After qualifications, the field will be split into twin 25-lap qualifying races between odd and even qualifying times. A coin toss will determine the lane choice of the odd and even finishers from the qualifying races. This unique format will put added importance on how you finish in the qualifying races. This will set the stage for a ground pounding 50-lap shootout with “The Fastest Short Track Cars in the World”.
Some of the top winged pavement sprint cars drivers from across America and Canada are expected to compete including MSRXSS points leader Brian Gerster, Troy DeCaire, Aaron Pierce, Jimmy McCune, Ryan Litt, Kody Swanson, Tim Cox, Billy Wease, and Jim Sheets taking on state of Michigan competitors Ryan Gillenwater, Jeff Bloom, Tyler Underwood, Garrett Green, Dave Baumgartner and John Turnbull Jr. among others. With the hefty purse up for grabs, this event will attract the best and most talented drivers the sport has to offer.
The MUST SEE TV “FIRECRACKER 50/50” event will be tape delayed on MAVTV and on Comcast in Michigan and Indiana for race fans viewing and entertainment.
