Posted May 28, 2012
Haubstadt, IN - May 27, 2012. Jon Stanbrough of Brownsburg, IN, won the
Memorial Weekend Classic at Tri-State Speedway Sunday night. The event
was a King of Indiana Sprint Series event which was in addition
sanctioned by the Midwest Sprint Car Series. The 30 lap feature paid
$2,500 to win. Stanbrough was at the wheel of the Leer Motorsports DRC
sprint car wrenched by Daryl Tate.
Stanbrough's driving performance was a classic in itself. He started
mid pack and methodically worked his way forward. Meanwhile a
terrific race was being waged at the front of the field. Seth Parker
led the first 22 laps and was fast off of an outside pole starting
position. Second place was being hotly contested behind Parker with
three drivers engaged in a close race. Stanbrough broke into that
pack and got past Kyle Cummins to take second on lap 20. Three laps
later he passed Parker for the lead. The win counted as Stanbrough's
19th career MSCS feature victory.
Damion Gardner would finish second. Gardner took the runner-up spot
with just 2 laps remaining. Kyle Cummins retook third spot with Seth
Parker settling for fourth at the checkers. Levi Jones was fifth.
Hunter Schuerenberg came in sixth. Brady Short, Chase Stockon,
Jonathan Hendrick, and Robert Ballou rounded out the top ten. Dave
Darland received the Wilwood Tuff Brakes award with his 11th place
Stanbrough's drive from tenth to first earned him the Keizer Aluminum
Wheels Hard Charger of the Race award. Fifteen drivers were on the
lead lap at the finish. There were four caution periods during the
feature. Three were for spins and the other yellow was issued when
Chase Briscoe's car stopped. Red flags were used twice during the
evening. Donny Brackett's car flipped during the third heat. Brian
Karraker's car flipped in the B.
The three KISS/MSCS heat races were won by Thomas Meseraull, Chad
Boespflug, and Hunter Schuerenberg. Thirty cars were entered. Kyle
Thomas Jr. took the B Main.
The race program concluded with the UMP Open Wheel Modified feature.
Kenny Schrader quickly turned one of his special dirt track
appearances into a victory. He started on the pole with his
Federated Auto Parts modified and drove to victory in the 25 lap
feature. The NASCAR veteran proved once again that he has not lost
that special touch that makes him so successful on the dirt. The
feature paid $1,000 to win and drew 36 modified drivers!
Shawn Cates of Evansville, IN, was second in the main event. Stephan
Schnapf, Levi Kissinger, and Michael Fox rounded out the top five.
Schrader, Schnapf, Bryce Jewell, and Paul Miles won the four modified
heat races. Clayton Perry and Trent Young won the two B Mains!
Tri-State Speedway will be hosting the USAC/POWRI Midgets for the Hut
100 on Saturday June 2nd. The Micro-Sprints will be the support
class. The MSCS Sprints will return to Tri-State Speedway for a
$3,000 to win show on Fathers Day June 17th.
