May 19, 2013 – Winchester, IN – Dave McKnight and Jo Jo Helberg each claimed victories in Sunday’s Must See Racing Xtreme Speed Challenge at Winchester Speedway. The 2nd annual event was greeted by warm weather and a good crowd.

McKnight’s victory in the 30-lap Engine Pro Must See Racing Super Modified Series (MSRSMS) presented by Oliver Racing Parts feature was redemption of sorts. McKnight crashed during practice for last year’s Xtreme Speed Challenge and was unable to participate.

McKnight, who started in the twelfth position, explained how important patience played in the outcome. “I can’t say enough about car owner Gary Morton” explained McKnight.” Gary told me to be patient. He had run here before and I had never run here. So this was a whole new world for me. He just told me you got a great car and be patient. Stay high and just give it time. Even when I got to the leaders and they were jostling, I just had to be patient until I had the right time and spot. You’re going so fast here and you come up on traffic so quick you have to be careful. I just waited and the opportunity was there and the car was there for me and I was able to attack. It was great”.
McKnight sported a smaller wing mounted on the rear of the car all day that may have played into the performance of the car. “I don’t really know if that was the key but it definitely helped. It didn’t kill out straightaway speed so less drag more speed. This place is all about finding a good balance between drag and speed. But it was very turbulent when I was in line with five guys. I had a lot of turbulence because I didn’t have a lot of air on it. Once I got out front and I got good air, the car was good” concluded McKnight.

Mike McVetta finished second followed by Jimmy McCune, Kyle Edwards, and Brian Gingrass rounding out the top five.

Mike McVetta got things off to a fast start earlier when he set a new track record for the Supermodifieds with a lap of 13.801. Heat wins went to Kyle Edwards, Jimmy McCune, and Mike McVetta.

Sunday’s Xtreme Speed Challenge kicked off a busy week for the Holly, MI based series.

The MSRSMS will be in action again tomorrow night at Anderson Speedway along with the International Outlaw Figure 8 Series (IOFS).
