STANBROUGH MEETS THE CHALLENGE AT TRI-STATE

Posted September 2, 2014

     Haubstadt, IN - Aug. 31, 2014 -  Jon Stanbrough proved lap after lap
that he was ready for any challenge.  The veteran sprint car driver
would prevail Sunday night in the Hoosier Tire Midwest Sprint Car
Series feature at the Tri-State Speedway.  The “Labor Day Weekend
Challenge” lined up with Kyle Cummins and Stanbrough sharing the
front row.  They would continue to share the limelight with
Stanbrough maintaining the lead for all 30 laps.  Stanbrough seemed
to have the preferred line around the quarter mile track.  Cummins
made all out attempts to get underneath him and complete a pass. 
Stanbrough also withstood the challenge of a late race restart after
lap 26
     The win was the first for Stanbrough with MSCS this season.  However,
it ranked as one of those career achievements.  It was win number 20
and raised the high mark for All Time Wins with MSCS that Stanbrough
holds!  The victory was also worth $3,000 in prize money.  Stanbrough
drove the Michael Dutcher Motorsports Fisher/Maxim sponsored by MP
Environmental Service, Griffin’s Propane, and Indiana Underground.
     By the end of the event Daron Clayton had moved up to third and
joined the top two in victory lane.  Stanbrough described his sprint
car as being a little on the tight side before it came to him.
Cummins remarked that his 3c sprint was tight the whole race.  He
then added:  “ I tried to make it interesting at the end.”  According
to Clayton, he had a car that was really good at the end of the race.
 “It was too late and I ended up third.”
     Chase Stockon and Brandon Mattox rounded out the top five for the
feature.  Brian Karraker finished sixth and improved 7 spots to grant
him the Keizer Aluminum Hard Charger Award for the race.  Others in
the top ten included Carson Short, Hud Cone, Mitch Wissmiller, and
Rookie Aaron Farney.  Donny Brackett collected the Wilwood Tuff
Brakes Award in finishing eleventh.
     The three prelimnary heat races were won by Brandon Mattox, Jon
Stanbrough, and Brady Short.  Short was running as high as third in
the feature but he was unable to complete the entire race.  Hunter
Schuerenberg also experienced problems.  He was in and out of the
action but took advantage of a second opportunity to win the B Main.
He dropped out of the first heat race after leading the first 7 laps.
     There was a lot of action in the events.  Drivers were passing cars
left and right in the heats.  The feature was slowed by three yellow
flags.  One late race incident in turn three involved five cars.
However 16 cars finished the feature!
     In the evening’s UMP Modified division, Levi Kissinger was the best
of a large field of 35 entrants.  Kissinger won one of the four heat
races and then added a victory in the 25 lap feature to finish off a
perfect race night performance.  It was the second win in a row at
Tri-State Speedway for the Mt. Vernon, IN, driver and it is the
second time this year that he has had back to back feature wins.
     Kentucky drivers Trent Young and Tyler Nicely finished second and
third in the feature.  Local drivers Dustin Beck and Brandon McDowell
rounded out the top five.   The first three heat races became
victories for Stephen Schnapf, Stan Beadles, and Young.  Tyler Nicely
and Michael Fox claimed the two B Mains.

     The next event for the MSCS Sprints will also be at the Tri-State
Speedway.  The United States Auto Club will be co-sanctioning the
Haubstadt Hustler with MSCS Saturday night September 13th.  The
winner will receive $10,000.  The UMP Modifieds will also be racing
that night.
