Unbeaten Streaks On An Anderson Collision Course

WILLIAMSTON, S.C. – The Must See Racing Sprint Car Series presented by Engine Pro is only days away from kicking off its season, with a two-day visit to Anderson Motor Speedway scheduled for May 14-15.

A complete racing program is on tap both nights.

There are several storylines heading into this weekend’s events, but perhaps none are bigger than the undefeated streaks of five-time series champion Jimmy McCune and Tampa, Fla., driver Joey “The Ace” Aguilar.

Both drivers are undefeated in sprint car competition at Anderson Motor Speedway. Aguilar swept a pair of USCS 360ci sprint car events in 2014, while McCune is riding a three-race winning streak at Anderson, which includes his most recent win there on April 20, 2018.

This weekend marks Must See’s first visit to the track since that event more than three years ago. Something will have to give this weekend, as one or both drivers will see their streaks end.

Another interesting story to keep an eye on this weekend is Troy DeCaire. DeCaire has been the nation’s winningest pavement sprint car driver each of the past two seasons. He currently finds himself tied with L.J. Grimm, with five wins already in the young season – the most in the country.

A win or two could help DeCaire put distance between himself and Grimm.

Young Anthony McCune is another driver to keep an eye on. The younger McCune opened his Must See campaign a year ago with a pair of wins and a weekend sweep. These victories ultimately propelled him to his first Must See championship.

In the process, Anthony ended his uncle Jimmy McCune’s bid for a sixth straight Must See title.

A solid list of entrants has been assembled for this weekend’s events. The events were originally scheduled to be contested three weeks ago, however, rain foiled those plans and the events were rescheduled for this weekend.

In addition to Must See’s Midwestern staples, a handful of Southeastern drivers expected to compete include North Carolina drivers Nolan Allison and Bobby Komisarski, as well as Virginia driver Anthony Linkenhoker. Florida drivers Aguilar and DeCaire are also entered.
