Anderson, IN – (August 26, 2014) – The inaugural “Labor Day 200” is set to kick off this Saturday night at Anderson Speedway. The new event will feature the Must See Racing Xtreme Sprint Series (MSRXSS) competing in the longest winged sprint car event of the year, anywhere, in the entire country.
The event will give fans 200 laps of racing action. The field will be split into twin 25 lap qualifiers that will determine the starting line-up for the 150-lap $4,000 to win shootout. There will be a ten minute break at the 75-lap mark to give teams a chance to refuel.
Early entries for this event include two former Little 500 champions: Jeff Bloom and Jacob Wilson. Other drivers expected to compete include newly crowned MSRXSS champion Brian Gerster, Jimmy McCune, Aaron Pierce, Ryan Gillenwater, Troy DeCaire, Kevin Blue, Jerry Caryer and, Jim Sheets among others.
There will be a purse of over $20,000 on the line for this historic event with the winner guaranteed $4,000 and $600 to start. Outside of the Little 500, this will be the biggest purse Must See Racing teams have competed for all season long.
Long distance sprint car races at Anderson Speedway have been the norm for several years. But, this will mark the longest distance winged sprint cars have competed in Anderson Speedway as well as Must See Racing to date. This will also be only the second time in the modern era of sprint car racing a long distance wing event of this nature has taken place. A 200 lap event at Salt Lake City, Utah took place last September. But that event was broken up into four 50-lap segments.
