HOLLY, Mich. – The Must See Racing Sprint Car Series has added an event at Owosso Speedway to its schedule, bringing the total event count to 13 races in seven states.
Billed as part one of the Border Wars Shootout, Must See Racing will invade the three-eighths-mile oval on Saturday, Aug. 24, before heading south to Ohio’s Sandusky Speedway the following day.
The added date at Owosso sets up a fourth two-day weekend on the tour schedule this year, an unprecedented calendar for both series officials and the drivers.
“We’re looking forward to having Owosso Speedway back on the calendar for The World’s Fastest Short Track Cars this season and excited to work with the track’s new owners, Gerry and Ken Williams,” said Must See Racing President Jim Hanks. “Our drivers and teams always put on a great show there and in our past history, Owosso Speedway has been home to some of the most exciting finishes in the history of our series.
“We hope to deliver another outstanding run when we return for the Border Wars show in August.
This year’s date marks the eighth appearance for the Must See Racing Sprint Car Series at Owosso, but the first time since the inaugural date there in 2014 that the track will host only one series event.
Four different drivers have won at Owosso under Must See Racing sanction, with four-time series champion Jimmy McCune leading the way as a three-time victor.
“Thirty years ago, when we had our first shop, we were in the Flint area and kept hearing that Owosso is the place to be. When we got the chance to buy it and build it up, we knew we had to take advantage of that chance,” noted track co-owner Ken Williams. “We know that Must See Racing has been at Owosso in the past, but we hope to bring a new energy into promoting the facility and the Border Wars event.
“We’re excited to bring in a high-quality, faith-based organization like the one that Jim and Nancy Hanks operate, and we hope to have our fans find plenty of fun and something that they don’t see every day when they come out on Aug. 24,” Williams added. “This is an addition to our schedule for the year that really gets our blood flowing.”
Including the non-points 71st annual Pay Less Little 500 at Anderson (Ind.) Speedway and the special Rumble for the Record time-attack event at Rockford (Ill.) Speedway, the complete Must See Racing schedule now features a total of 15 dates across six months.
