FINAL 2012 RACE - THE HARVEST CUP
Posted October 3, 2012
SERIES CHAMPION WILL BE DETERMINED AT TRI-STATE SPEEDWAY!
Haubstadt, IN. - October 3, 2012. The Hoosier Tire Midwest Sprint Car
Series will be holding the final race of the 2012 season this Saturday
night October 6th. This will be the second annual Harvest Cup which
will be highlighted by a 30 lap feature offering $4,000 to the winner.
This race will close out the season for the series and is also the
last race of this season to be held at the speedway. The night's
program will also include the UMP Modified class with an increased
purse to make it an exciting open wheel doubleheader.
The results of last weekend's City of Lawrenceburg Nationals gave all
the MSCS drivers an opportunity to improve their standing in the
season points with the finale only a week way. Jon Stanbrough was
able to gain an addition 4 points over Robert Ballou. Now only eight
points separate the two top drivers. Racing this weekend on the
quarter mile track at Haubstadt will determine which driver will be
the new champion. Neither driver has ever won the MSCS title but
together they have accumulated 26 MSCS feature victories in their
careers. They have been a factor year after year when the green flag
waves. Both have MSCS victories this season. Stanbrough's win came
at Tri-State Speedway and Ballou won at Terre Haute. Stanbrough also
won the 2011 Harvest Cup!
The MSCS Rookie of the Year points battle has continued right on into
the final night of competition. Chet Williams and Brian Karraker had
made this a dual by mid season. Williams leads Karraker by a mere 10
points heading into the Harvest Cup. Williams is from Newburgh, IN,
and Karraker races out of Dongola, IL.
The MSCS Series continues to deliver surprise after surprise to fans
from the realm of the unexpected. On September 29th Chase Stockon
became the 18th different sprint car driver to lead an MSCS feature
this season. This time he was the only leader in winning the City of
Lawrenceburg Nationals. His $10,000 win & Daron Clayton's $10,000
win at the Haubstadt Hustler two weeks prior were excitingly
different runs. Of the twenty-one drivers that normally start an
MSCS feature, eleven could be from the list of drivers that have
already won features with MSCS this season. And one of the other
competitors might be the driver holding this weekend's surprise
card. Racing begins at 7:30!
