Tri-State Speedway News & Publicity


Posted September 22, 2015

     Haubstadt, IN - September 22, 2015 -  The Hoosier Tire Midwest Sprint
Car Series will share in presenting the racing program this Saturday
night September 26th with the Lucas Oil POWRi Midgets and the UMP
Open Wheel Modifieds.  The occasion is the fourth annual Class Track
Fall Roundup at the Tri-State Speedway. 
     Only two more race dates are left on the 2015 schedule for MSCS.
Both are at Tri-State Speedway.  At this point the racing is not just
about the night’s feature purse but season honors and the series
point fund. 
     Brady Short continues to lead in points accumulated.  Carson Short is
second to the Bedford Blaster and has fallen behind 68 points.  A
racing incident took Carson out early during the B Main at the
Haubstadt Hustler and prevented him from an opportunity to transfer
and earn additional points during the feature.
     Last season Kyle Cummins locked up his fourth Championship bid at the
Fall Roundup.  Brady Short is looking for MSCS Championship number
two, having won it for a first time in 2011.  This past Saturday
night Brady turned in a record setting performance in winning the
Haubstadt Hustler.  He became the All Time Feature Wins leader for
the series with 21 victories.  Ten of those wins have happened during
this season.
     The remainder of the standings also depend on results from the last
two events before they can be finalized.  Last season’s Rookie of the
Year James Lyerla is third in the standings.  He finished seventh in
the overall points in 2014 and has worked to improve upon those stats
this season.  This year’s MSCS Rookie Points leader is Brandon Morin
of Jasonville, IN.  He is currently ninth in the points and was
ranked as high as sixth in the standings earlier this season.  Kyle
Cummins is currently tenth and sits on a bubble with at least two
other drivers still within reach of a top ten season finish.
     Even though Brady Short has enjoyed a dominating season other drivers
have picked up victories.  Chase Stockon has two wins.  He won the
season opener and then again at mid season.  Kyle Cummins won on
Labor Day Weekend and led 35 laps of the Hustler.  Robert Ballou won
on the 4th of July weekend.  Thomas Meseraull won one of the three
Memorial Day weekend features.  Shane Cottle took the feature at
Montpelier.  Brady Bacon and Bryan Clauson won the two USAC-MSCS
co-sanctioned events in April.  That is a total of eight different
feature winners!
     The final race of the season for the MSCS Sprint Cars will be on
October 10th.  That is the date for the annual Harvest Cup at
Tri-State Speedway.  It is two big season ending races and just two
weeks apart. 

   The POWRi Midgets will be making their second appearance of the
season.  The event is a special event new to and within an existing
special event.  The program is also the second portion of the Ford
Eco Boost Challenge.  The first portion was held at Tri-State
Speedway on August 1st with Gage Walker becoming the feature winner.
Walker races out of Fairland, IN, and the win was the first of his
career with the Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget Series.
     Among those drivers expected to compete are Darren Hagen, Andrew
Felker, Austin Brown, Kyle Schuett, and Spencer Bayston.  Those five
make up the Top Five in the standings for the series.

     The UMP Open Wheel  Modifieds will be competing at the speedway for
the tenth time this season.  A multitude of drivers follow the series
from track to track across the region. 
     Stephen Schnapf of Newburgh won last week’s modified feature.  Only
two drivers have multiple wins.  Zach Fair has three victories to his
credit and Trent Young has won the main event twice.  Other winners
are Matt Lane, Josh Harris, and Dustin Beck.  The race isn’t truly
over until the modified engines become silent.  Then you have seen
all the excitement the night had to offer!
