INDIANA SPRINT WEEK IS HERE

Posted July 19, 2013

     Haubstadt, IN - July 18, 2013.  Indiana Sprint Week continues this
week with the finale scheduled to be held at the Tri-State Speedway
in Haubstadt, IN.  The event on Saturday night July 20th will be
sanctioned by the United States Auto Club.  It will be the seventh
race scheduled to be held at seven different tracks in a nine day
period. The 410 sprint car teams involved spent the first weekend
racing at dirt tracks in northern and east central Indiana before
heading south and west for the final 4 races.
     This is year 26 for Indiana Sprint week.   The title chase this year
is shaping up to be another tight battle.  Points leaders so far have
been three time Sprint Week Champion Dave Darland and an aspiring
Kevin Thomas Jr.  After the first four ISW events Darland also
continued to remain at the top of the 2013 USAC National Championship
Points Standings.  Racing each night affects both standings.
     The feature event Saturday night for the USAC Sprint Cars will pay
$5,000 to win.  Kevin Thomas Jr. of Cullman, AL, has dominated the
early sprint week action in winning the last three feature events.
Veteran Jon Stanbrough took the opening night feature.  Stanbrough
won last season's ISW feature at Tri-State Speedway.  Thomas already
has two sprint car victories at Tri-State Speedway this season.  One
was at a USAC/MSCS combined show and the other at a MSCS sanctioned
event.
     Qualifications are an integral part of a USAC racing program.  They
will begin at 6:30 with heat racing beginning at 7:30.  Drivers will
be competing to set the quickest time.  Dave Darland turned the
quarter mile Haubstadt oval at last year's event in 13.234 seconds.
Tri-State Speedway is the only track on the sprint week schedule that
is in the central time zone.
     The UMP Open Wheel Modifieds will also be participating in this
special program.
     Reserved seating is available for events at Tri-State Speedway. The
number to call to arrange for tickets is 812-768-6025.
