STOCKON WINS MSCS SEASON FINALE AT TRI-STATE
BRADY SHORT IS CROWNED AS THE 2015 CHAMPION

     Haubstadt, IN - October 10, 2015 -  Chase Stockon captured the
Harvest Cup at the Tri-State Speedway Saturday night.  The
Elizabethtown, IN, driver started on the pole and no-one could catch
him.  It took nine laps of racing behind him for a challenger to
emerge with the speed to catch him.  That was Kyle Cummins who had
started seventh.  Cummins would strive to close in on the leader only
to have Stockon dive into a pack of cars.  Stockon was uncanny in
dealing with lapped traffic and would somehow emerge with an
opportunity to widen his lead again.  A restart with only one lap to
go in the 30 lap feature presented one final chance for Cummins to
challenge for the lead.  One lap wasn’t enough time.  Chase Stockon
capitalized on a great restart and rocketed to his third MSCS win of
the season.

     In victory lane Stockon was very candid.  “There was a lot of
pressure behind me.  I knew that one slip up could cost me.  I needed
to run smart.  The race got a little tricky but we got the job done.
I have struggled a little here this year.  Tonight D.J. (Ott) got the
car working great!”  Stockon was in the familiar 32/TBI Racing sprint
sponsored by Crescent Electric, Angle Buildings, FK Shocks, and Ted
Brown’s Quality Paint.

     Kyle Cummins finished second and Kevin Thomas Jr. was third in the
feature.  Both were hoping to do better and that racer determination
was voiced by them following the event.  Cummins and the Rock Steady
Racing Team and Kevin Thomas Jr. and the Michael Dutcher Motorsports
team attained another podium finish each.  2015 MSCS Champion Brady
Short finished fourth.  He received the championship trophy along
with car owner Cam Pottorff in a pre-race ceremony.  2015 Points
runner-up Carson Short was next  to complete a very strong top five
in the running order.

     Critter Malone was on the move after needing to restart at the back
of the pack.  He was involved in an incident that brought out the
first yellow flag for the feature and sent the damaged car of Donny
Brackett to the pits.  Malone finished the race with a last lap move
that placed him sixth.  Jeff Bland Jr. was seventh.  The remainder of
the top ten included Kent Schmidt, Chet Williams, and James Lyerla.

     Dakota Jackson received the Wilwood Tuff Brakes Award with an
eleventh place finish.  2015 Rookie of the Year Brandon Morin was
twelfth.  He was also honored at the pre-race awards ceremony.  His
battle with Kendall Ruble in the B Main for that last transfer spot
went lap after lap.  Chet Williams won the B Main.  Williams and
Morin both gained 8 spots in the feature to lead all contenders for
the Hardcharger designation.  Chet Williams had the higher finish so
he was the Keizer Aluminum Wheels Hard Charger of the Race.

     Heat races for the 25 car MSCS field were won by Kevin Thomas Jr.,
Chase Stockon, and Jeff Bland Jr.  Jeff Bland Jr. earned the most
passing points in moving up six spots in heat three.  This event
concluded the season for the Hoosier Tire Midwest Sprint Car Series.

MC DOWELL TAKES A GRAND IN MODIFIED ACTION

     Brandon McDowell of Boonville, IN, won the 25 lap UMP Open Wheel
Modified feature.  He took advantage of  an opportunity to start on
the pole and turned it into a winning performance.  It was his first
feature win of the season at the track.

     Stan Beadles of Owensville, IN,  was the runner-up for the second
race in a row.  He was just .8 of a second behind the leader.  Dustin
Beck was third.  Trent Young and Levi Kissinger rounded out the top
five for the 21 starters.  Fourteen cars finished the event and the
top ten cars were still on the lead lap at the conclusion.

     Brandon McDowell, Stan Beadles, and Mark Lamont won the three heat
races.  Lance Foreman worked to make the second heat the closest of
the three held.  Foreman was sixth in the feature.  A B Main was not
needed.

     HENNING TAKES THE RUPPENTHAL MEMORIAL

     Rod Henning returned to victory lane for the second time this season.
 The Middletown, OH, driver won the 20 lap Ruppenthal Memorial held
for the Midwest Mini Sprint Association.  Andy Bradley, Collin
Ambrose, Justin Lewis, and Lynn Ambrose rounded out the top five.

     Kevin Rice, Lynn Ambrose, and Justin Lewis won the heat races.
Kendall Tyler picked up the win in the B Main.  A nice field of 27
cars showed up.  Combined with the other two classes the pit area
overfilled and the back gate had to be opened to accommodate the rest
of the cars.

    The evening was a fitting season finale for Tri-State Speedway.
Competitors and fans can now look forward to racing next spring when
the 2016 season begins.
