Gerster Picks Up Must See Racing Fast Time At Berlin

MARNE, Mich. – Brian Gerster extended his all-time qualifying record with the Must See Racing Sprint Car Series during Saturday's Engine Pro Fast Car Dash program at the seven-sixteenths-mile oval.


Gerster raced to his 29th career Hamilton Trucking Fast Time Award with a lap of 13.209 seconds (119.237 mph) in the No. 50m RAM Engineering Midwest/Fuller Life Water Co. sprinter for Dick Myers Racing.


It marks Gerster's third-career MSR-sanctioned fast time at Berlin, and his first at the track since the special Speed Trial event in 2015, when he broke the all-time track record.


Defending Berlin winner Charlie Schultz timed in second-fastest at 13.234 seconds (119.012 mph) with the John Reiser-owned No. 9s entry, followed by Canadian Ryan Litt (13.368/117.819), who was third in the 24-car field.


Four-time Must See Racing Sprint Car Series champion Jimmy McCune and home-state driver Jason Blonde completed the top five in qualifying.


Tom Jewell, who finished a career-best second last June at Berlin, was sixth ahead of Anthony McCune, Teddy Alberts, Jerry Caryer and Kevin Feeney.


Tyler Roahrig, who planned to race the Wayne Stickney No. 99 Saturday night, participated in a pair of practice sessions early in the day but scratched for the evening after fighting a severe vibration.


Heat races at Berlin are slated to begin at 8 p.m. ET.
