Rockford, IL — (January 11, 2014) –Must See Racing and Rockford Speedway in Loves Park, Illinois announce today the Must See Racing Xtreme Sprint Series will join the 49th National Short Track Championships lineup on September 26, 27 & 28th ,2014.
“We are ecstatic to add the National Short Track Championships at Rockford Speedway to our 2014 schedule. Rockford Speedway is a first class facility in an excellent racing market. The event is steeped in tradition, rich in history and recognized as one of America’s iconic and important national short track racing events. This is a great addition for our series, schedule, race teams and fans,” said MSR founder and President Jim Hanks.
Toledo, Ohio’s Jimmy McCune, the 2011 Rockford MSR feature winner added,
”Rockford Speedway’s fast high banks will be a real challenge for the Must See race teams. The fifty lap feature will be very competitive and give everyone enough laps to compete for the win. I sure enjoyed our 2011 visit taking home the feature win, parking the car in victory lane and meeting the fans. I’m really looking forward to the September race and I can’t wait to get back to Rockford.”
“Moving the original Rockford date presented a scheduling opportunity to have a late season MSR event closer to home for our teams and allowed us to race at Auto City Speedway in Clio, Michigan two nights in a row on Thursday July 3rd and Friday July 4th. Michigan has very passionate, avid and loyal sprint car race fans that have been great supporting MSR events. We will soon make announcements about a new, different and unique format for the two day Auto City event,” concluded Hanks.
Aaron Pierce of Daleville, Indiana put on a spectacular display of speed and driving skill at last year’s Auto City event. After being delegated to the back of the field, following a second lap spin out, Aaron piloted his Sam Pierce Chevrolet sponsored sprinter through the entire very talented field to take the feature victory. When MSR television pit reporter Dave Argabright said “that couldn’t have been much fun having to come from the back” Aaron responded, “Are you kidding, that was a whole lotta of fun”.
