BIRCH RUN, Mich. – Brian Gerster kept his success streak at Birch Run Speedway going by topping Hamilton Trucking Time Trials for the Must See Racing Sprint Car Series on Friday evening.


Gerster, the winged asphalt sprint car tour's all-time qualifying leader, rolled to his 28th career MSR Fast Time Award with a lap of 13.287 seconds (108.377 mph) in the No. 50m Dick Myers Racing machine.


Four-time series champion Jimmy McCune followed Gerster in second with the familiar No. 88 Abe's Auto Parts/B&B Machinery Movers/Rev-X Oil sprinter at 13.580 seconds (106.038 mph), and returning two-time champion Troy DeCaire was third-quick at 13.583 seconds (106.015 mph).


Canadian Ryan Litt and former MSR rookie of the year Anthony McCune completed the top five.


Charlie Schultz qualified sixth, followed by Jason Blonde, Ike Beasley, Joe Liguori and Jerry Caryer.


Beasley scratched for the night following qualifying due to an engine issue with his No. 97 car.


Heat races for the Must See Racing sprint cars are scheduled for roughly 8:15 p.m. ET.
