Xtreme Sprints Move Rockford Date


LOVES PARK, Ill. – Must See Racing and Rockford Speedway have announced the Must See Racing Xtreme Sprint Series will join the 49th National Short Track Championships lineup on September 26-28, 2014.

“We are ecstatic to add the National Short Track Championships at Rockford Speedway to our 2014 schedule,” said MSR founder and President Jim Hanks. “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.”

Jimmy McCune, the 2011 Rockford MSR feature winner, is excited about the schedule change.

”Rockford Speedway’s fast high banks will be a real challenge for the Must See race teams,” McCune said. “The 50-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, Mich., two nights in a row on Thursday, July 3 and Friday, July 4,” said Hanks. “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.”
