2013) - Pay Less Little 500 week
kicks off on Monday, May 20 at Anderson
Speedway with a double header featuring the
Must See Racing Supermodified Series and
International Outlaw Figure 8 Series (IOFS).
The MSR Supermodifieds will be making their
second appearance at the quarter-mile oval
in the short history of the series. Last
October, when it appeared Kyle Edwards was
going to settle for a second place finish,
leader Charlie Schultz tangled with a lapped
car with 22 laps remaining.
Schultz dominated the first 78 laps of the
event and looked like he was leaving with
the trophy. Schultz made contact with the
lapped car of Don Johnson on the front
straight, getting slightly airborne and
rolling to a stop in the infield with
That gave Edwards, running a distant second
at the time the lead and put Jimmy McCune
back on the lead lap for the restart. From
there Edwards pulled away to win by
2.5-seconds over McCune followed by Bandon
Fisher, Sondi Eden and Jon Henes.
The MSR Supermodifieds made their season
debut on Sunday, May 19 at Winchester
Speedway with Dave McKnight earning the
victory over Mike McVetta followed by Jimmy
McCune, Kyle Edwards, and Brian Gingrass
rounding out the top five.
