SOUTH BOSTON, Va. (April 7, 2022) -- The Must See Racing Sprint Series presented by Engine Pro is a little over three weeks away, with the season opener scheduled to take place at South Boston Speedway Friday, April 29 and Saturday, April 30.
The two-day format will include two complete nights of racing, referred to as the Sentara Healthcare American Sprint Car Weekend.
This will be the first time in the track's 65-year history that winged 410 sprint cars have visited the banked, four-tenths-mile asphalt oval.
The weekend will kick off on Thursday, April 28, with an open practice. The following nights will see racing programs that include single car qualifying, heat races and 30 lap feature events for the Must See Racing Sprint Cars. In addition, both events will be televised for a future tape-delayed broadcast on MAVTV.
Both nights will also feature action from the USAC Eastern Midgets (30 laps).
South Boston Speedway's Budweiser Limited Sportsman (50 laps), Pure Stocks (25 laps) and Hornets (20 laps) will be in action in Friday night.
The track's Late Model Stock Car division co-headlines Saturday's action with twin 75-lap races along with the Southern Ground Pounders Vintage Racing Series, which features vintage Sportsman and Modified cars.
Interest in the event is drawing drivers from more than seven states -- including Michigan, Ohio, Massachusetts, Indiana, Florida, North Carolina and Pennsylvania.
Additionally, over 20 cars are expected for this event. Early entrants include Adam Blitz, Jeff Bloom, Jacob Dollinar, Anthony Linkenholder, Joe Speakman, Mike McVetta and Rickey Holley.
There are a few drivers to keep an eye on throughout the event. Bloom will be entering his fifty-sixth season of competition and will be looking to add to hi all-time win total. Jimmy McCune will be looking for his sixth career Must See Racing championship.
Anthony McCune is the defending Must See Racing champion and will be looking to repeat.
This will be the first time since 2020 that Must See Racing has had a points championship. The series did not award a series champion in 2021 due to COVID-19 concerns and the uncertainty of races that would be held during the pandemic.
