Winged Sprint Cars Kick Off Pay Less Little 500 Week on Wednesday Night

Anderson Speedway kicks off the 2010 Pay Less Little 500 week with the Must See Xtreme Sprint Series featured in a 60-lap event on Wednesday, May 26, showcasing some of the premier pavement Winged Sprint Car competitors in the country.

The 2010 edition of the Must See Racing 60 will once again bring the fastest short track cars in the World to Anderson Speedway. This year’s event will be co-sanctioned by the Must See Racing Xtreme Sprint Series and the Hoosier Outlaw Sprint Series.

2010 interestingly marks the inaugural season for the Must See Racing Xtreme Sprint Series. The new series will embark on an 10 race series at historic Midwestern speedways such as: Salem, Winchester, Auto City, Kalamazoo, and Slinger. The inaugural Must See event was held on May 8th at Salem and was a last lap thriller with local driver Aaron Pierce coming home as the winner. Nearly 30 cars took part in this inaugural event.

The addition of winged sprint cars to Little 500 festivities proved very popular after last years event. Veteran Hank Lower took the win and Tampa, Florida’s Dave Steele set a new World’s record during qualifying. There has been a Little 500 tune-up event at Anderson Speedway every year since 1988 but last year marked the first time the event featured wings.

This year will be the second consecutive year the event will be tape delayed for television coverage. Rick Benjamin, Dave Argabright, and Tom Bigelow will provide commentary, in-depth analysis, and interesting insights before, during, and after the event that will be distributed to over 80 million housholds nationally as well as internationally. The event will be aired on Comcast SportsNet and other popular networks. The air date of the event will be announced on the website.
