ANDERSON, Ind. – Jimmy McCune got his Must See Racing Sprint Car Series title defense off to a fast start on Saturday evening at Anderson Speedway by sweeping practice for the season-opening Must See Racing 50.

McCune, the four-time defending series titlist, was fastest in both sessions and set the fast lap of the day – 11.110 seconds (81.008 mph) – during the second and final round with his No. 88 Abe’s Auto Parts/B&B Machinery Movers sprinter.

His nephew, Anthony McCune, was second-quick in Happy Hour with a best lap of 11.165 seconds (80.609 mph) with the similarly-schemed No. 8 B&B Machinery Movers machine.

Making his first winged sprint car appearance since 2016, home-state driver and outlaw late model ace Tyler Roahrig was third overall (11.311/79.569), followed by Charlie Schultz and National Sprint Car Hall of Famer Jeff Bloom.

Sixth was series rookie Joe Liguori, with fellow rookie Trey Osborne, Geoff Kaiser, Canadian Ryan Litt and Tom Jewell completing the balance of the top 10.

Hamilton Trucking Time Trials will kick off at 7 p.m. local time.
