JENNERSTOWN RETURNS TO MUST SEE RACING SCHEDULE IN 2022
October 25, 2021 – Holly, Mich. – The Must See Racing Sprint Series presented by Engine Pro today announced that the series will be returning to Jennerstown Speedway August 27, 2022. It will be the first time the popular 410-winged pavement sprint car series has competed at the 0.522 speedway since 2020.
MSR president Jim Hanks made the announcement and expressed how excited the series is to return to Jennerstown Speedway. “Our MSR officials and race teams are excited to be back at Pennsylvania’s Jennerstown Speedway in 2022 showcasing the super-fast winged sprints in the DAVID D. MATEER MEMORIAL event honoring American Racer’s past president who played an integral part developing the MSR very successful spec tire.
Jennerstown Speedway has great enthusiastic fans and is no doubt one of the best short track facilities anywhere. Can’t wait to see everyone on August 27th, 2022.” Concluded Hanks.
The speedway’s GM Billy Hribar also expressed how excited Jennerstown Speedway is to welcome 410 sprint cars back in 2022. ”The last time Must See Racing was here we had an overwhelming crowd. It was a great experience. Last year we were trying to recover from COVID. We kind of went a different direction to bounce back. We had a stellar season at the speedway this year. We saw a great opportunity to add to it and bring the sprint cars back.
There is a rich history, not just in Jennerstown, but in Western Pennsylvania with sprint cars on the dirt tracks around here. It was one of those things where we saw there was a 410 for asphalt series out there, we tried to intrigue these fans, particularly on the dirt side to come over to see that. That’s what exactly happened. It just didn’t play to the asphalt fans in the area, it also lured in dirt fans to come experience Jennerstown. We expect a big crowd” concluded Hribar.
Jennerstown Speedway has a rich history of hosting sprint car events in the past. The track was built as a flat half mile in the 1920’s. It was paved in 1987. Prior to its paving the track had hosted countless sprint car events over the years. It is also the site of iconic sprint car driver Jan Opperman’s crash that resulted in a severe head injury in 1981. The injury would ultimately be responsible for his death in 1997.
