Anderson, IN — (May 21, 2013) — The fifth annual Must See Racing 60 presented by Sam Pierce Chevrolet will bring the fastest short track cars in the World to Anderson Speedway on Wednesday, May 22. The TRUFUEL Must See Racing Xtreme Sprint Series (MSRXSS) will be competing in their fourth race of the season.

Drivers that have earned a victory in the early potion of the MSRXSS season include Canada’s Ryan Litt at Five Flags Speedway and California’s Jo Jo Helberg at Mobile International Speedway in Irvington, Ala. And most recently Winchester Speedway.

The event at Anderson is expected to draw most of the top winged pavement drivers from around the country. Expected entrants include: Jason Cox, Troy DeCaire, Cody Gerhardt, Brian Gerster, Jo Jo Helberg, Jimmy Kite, Jimmy McCune, Brian Olson, Aaron Pierce, Tanner Swanson, and Jacob Wilson among many others.

Local driver, Aaron Pierce, from nearby Daleville, is no stranger to Anderson Speedway and particularly sprint car events. Pierce has won sprint car events at Anderson Speedway with other sanctioning bodies including USAC and USSA including the last two Glen Niebel Classic races. He would like nothing more than to pick up a MSRXSS win at his home track.

Joining the winged sprint cars will be the Mel Kenyon Midgets. They will be making their second appearance at the quarter-mile oval in 2013. The initial appearance on April 14 saw Lebanon’s Spencer Bayston set quick time and go on to claim the 30-lap feature.
