Posted June 18, 2012
SHORT BECOMES FIFTH DIFFERENT MSCS WINNER IN FIVE RACES
Haubstadt, IN - June 17. Brady Short won his first Hoosier Tire
Midwest Sprint Car Series feature of the season Sunday night at
Tri-State Speedway. The Bedford Blaster collected $3,000 for his
winning effort behind the wheel of the Spec powered Maxim sprinter
sponsored by Indiana Stone Works and Pottorff Logging. The car is
owned by Don Short.
Brady Short started fifth in the twenty car feature field. Jeff
Bland Jr. and Robert Ballou started on the front row by virtue of the
redraw. Both had won heat races and would prove to be tough passes
for drivers attempting to move up. Ballou grabbed the lead with
Bland holding second until lap 11. Short was third by then and made
the pass on Bland. Ballou, who would finish second, led the most
laps as he kept the lead until lap 18. That is when Short took over
to become the fifth different winner in five MSCS races.
During the feature the top four or five drivers stayed in close
formation. Veteran Jon Stanbrough caught the front runners on lap 20
after starting 10th. He almost took an unexpected ride in turn four
when his car's wheels touched those of another. He landed on all
four and continued on to finish third . A caution with only 5 laps
remaining sent all the lapped cars to the tail as per MSCS rules.
The race was then resolved with a dash to the finish without the
presence of any slower traffic.
Kyle Cummins finished fourth in the feature and Jeff Bland Jr.
rounded out the top five. Hunter Schuerenberg led the second five
consisting of Jonathan Hendrick, Seth Parker, second heat winner
Blake Fitzpatrick, and Braylon Fitzpatrick. Chase Stockon received
the Wilwood Tuff Brakes Award. He regrouped to finish 11th in the
feature after needing to visit the work area to replace a flat left
rear. Stockon also finished fifth in his heat despite the effects of
a flat right front tire during the final lap.
MSCS Points leader Jon Stanbrough was the Keizer Aluminum Wheels Hard
Charger for the night. He improved 7 spots during the feature. The
feature could not have been better scripted for fans to enjoy. It was
a battle between the two different points leaders this season, a three
time champion, and last year's defending champion and winner Brady
Two drivers had the misfortune to ride out flips during the racing
action. Donny Brackett's car flipped in the hotly contested third
heat race. Chase Briscoe's car flipped during the feature. Both
accidents were in turn two and no injuries were reported.
The MSCS Sprints will return to Tri-State Speedway Saturday night June 30th for the MSCS

the B Main and had to come from deep in the 18 car field to become
the final challenger to Young for the win. Likewise Levi Kissinger
finished third after starting 15th. Tyler Nicely and Stan Beadles
rounded out the top five.
