RETURN

On a perfect August night the Must See Racing winged sprints scorched the pavement at Salem Speedway. Brian Gerster set a new track record sub-14 second lap and Brian Olson earned the honor of adding his name to the Joe James/Pat O'Connor Memorial winner's list.

Kyle Hadley led flag to flag to win the Lucas Oil Great American Stocks 50 lap event.

And as always, the vintage race cars were on hand to supply a little eye candy for the fans.
