2ND ANNUAL EXTREME SPEED CHALLENGE UP NEXT FOR MUST SEE RACING
July 27, 2021 – The 2nd annual Extreme Speed Challenge at Lorain County Raceway Park August 13-14 is a little more than two weeks away, but preparations are already underway. The two-day event will see the Must See Racing Sprint Series presented by Engine Pro, Midwest Supermodified Series, and Maxima Racing Oil’s Midwest Lights Series headline the event.
The event inaugurated last August and drew an excellent crowd and car count despite COVID-19 restrictions at the time. The event has quickly become one of the most popular events on the MSR schedule. Very few events across the country offer three open wheel divisions in a single weekend as this event does.
The Xtreme Speed Challenge will be highlighted by the MSR 410’s, which will be back in action after having a mid season break. Jimmy McCune picked up his second victory of the season with his win at M-40 Speedway in Jones, Michigan.
To date, the competitive MSR 410's and Lights series have seen 8 different feature winners in 2021. With the layoff allowing extra preparation time, a very strong field of sprint cars is expected.
The unique format for this event will see 410 sprint car teams competing for a purse of $22, 540 with the winner taking home $2,500 for the 30-lap feature on Saturday night. Friday night will see twin 20-lap qualifying races, the Engine Pro Fast Car Dash, heat races, and will also feature the Maxima Racing Oil’s Midwest Lights Series competing in a full program of racing action.
Saturday night will see the 401’s return for their 30-lap feature and B-main and a full racing program for the Midwest Supermodified Series. Modifieds and Chargers will also be in action both nights.
Saturday’s finale for the 410’s will be the ‘Jerry Caryer Memorial’. The long-time MSR competitor from Ney, Ohio passed away one year ago on the day of this event. Caryer was preparing to head to Lorain County Raceway Park when he succumbed to a heart attack. Caryer was a very popular driver in the series, and it is only fitting that the event will take place in his home state of Ohio.
