MUST SEE RACING HEADS SOUTH FOR WEEKEND DOUBLE

October 5, 2021 – The Must See Racing Sprint Series presented by Engine Pro returns to racing action this weekend. The series will invade the state of Alabama for two complete nights of racing action at Montgomery Motor Speedway Oct. 8-9.

 
The series has enjoyed a highly competitive season thus far in 2021. The season has produced four different winners with only 5-time MSR champion Jimmy McCune winning more than once.

 
The series last event at Lorain Raceway Park in Ohio produced a thriller that saw McCune edge Florida’s Troy DeCaire after a highly contested battle for the win.

 
This weekend’s visit to Alabama won’t be the first for the series, but it will be the first to Montgomery Motor Speedway. The series has competed at Irvington, Alabama prior to this year.

 
The event is expected to draw many of the MSR regulars as well as a few of southeastern drivers including long time and popular southern stock car star Dave Mader III who today announced plans to compete in his new winged asphalt sprint car at the fast Montgomery Motor Speedway event joining the MSR teams from all around the country.


Early expected entries include: Mader III, Troy DeCaire, Charlie Schultz, Kevin Feeney, Jeff Bloom, Joe Liguori, Nolan Allison, Adam Biltz , Tom Jewell, Bobby Komasarski, Rick Holley, Todd McQuillen, Joshua Sexton, Tommy Nichols and others.

The Pink Lady Classic is a 100-lap event ran in three stages. The event is a co-sanctioned NSRA/Speed Tour event with a promotional partnership from Must See Racing. This years field featured one of the strongest winged pavement sprint car fields seen anywhere in recent seasons.


Nelson took the lead early in stage one and appeared strong. Just after taking the checkered in stage one, Nelson’s car made contact with another car, just after crossing the start/finish line. Nelson’s car backed into the turn one wall damaging the fuel tank with no other damage.

Prior to stage #2, a 7 was drawn for the invert. The race resumed with stage #2 on lap 39 with Bryan Gossell and Troy DeCaire making up the front row. DeCaire got the jump at the start and dominated the second stage. He set a torrid pace and built up a sizeable lead for the next 38 laps. He appeared to be the car to beat. With just a few laps remaining in stage #2, smoke began to billow from under the hood of DeCaire’s Beast chassis.


While in the pits for the scheduled break, it was discovered DeCaire’s car had a blown head gasket. Bars Leaks was added to try to seal the head gasket, and the team hoped the engine would hold up for 24 more laps. DeCaire’s car would not fire prior to the start of stage #3. DeCaire would be forced to retire from the event.

The final stage would see only the top 10 cars running for the final stage. All cars were allowed to put on new tires for the final stage.
Nelson wrestled the lead from Bryan Gossell early in the final stage and withstood multiple double file restarts in the closing laps to win his second career Pink Lady Classic in front of a huge crowd.


“I’m real excited to be here” explained a jubilant Nelson in victory lane. I haven’t won all year and I’m stoked the one I win is this one”.
Nelson explained his accident to close out stage one that could have proved fateful.” I was trying to get around a lapped car for about 10 laps. Ended up hopping his tire at the checkered flag. It spun me around and I backed into the wall. Luckily it just caved in the rear basket. It caved in the fuel cell quit a bit too. We just went with it”.


The final stage saw Nelson continually choose the outside lane on restarts and he explained his thinking.” The speedway coke syruped the outside lane all weekend. I knew that would be the lane to run” concluded Nelson.

The event will be a points race for NSRA and Speed Tour with a promotional involvement from Must See Racing presented by Engine Pro.
British Columbia, Canada driver Aaron Willison set a new track record and the right to claim the pole position for tonight’s event. Willison was the only driver to crack the 10 second barrier when he ripped a lap of 10.903 seconds around the 8-degree banked quarter- mile speedway. The right to lead the field for tonight’s event was worth $500 for Willison.


Several heavy hitters missed the transfer to the A-main during heat race preliminaries and were forced to crack the A-main starting lineup through the B-main including Eric Humphries, Bryan Warf, Jimmy McCune, Randy Dubois, and Matt Elliott among others.


Humphries led wire-to-wire to capture the 20-lap ‘Tom Elliott Sportsman Classic’ and secure a spot in tonight’s 100-lap Pink Lady Classic. The win was worth $1,000 for Humphries.


Willison and second fastest qualifier Colton Nelson received automatic starting spots and were locked into the feature event by virtue of their qualifying times. The duo will make up the front row for tonight’s event.
