Spring Showdown is Opening Race April 26
Posted April 21, 2014
Haubstadt, IN -
Spring is in the air! Let's get our race season started with the
Spring Showdown here on Sat. April 26th. It's the Midwest Sprint
Car Series and the USAC Sprint cars starting off this year's
thirteen race schedule.
Action gets underway Saturday with MSCS regulars encountering the art
of qualifying during time trials. The “Spring Showdown” will play
out following 2014 USAC Official Rules of Competition. The format
will include 10 lap heats, a qualifying race if necessary, a 12 lap
semi, and the 30 lap feature. The feature will pay $5,000 to win and
$500 to start. Twenty two cars will start the main event. The
provisional starter program will also be in effect for both series!
Last season’s “Spring Showdown” was won by Cullman Alabama’s Kevin
Thomas Jr. He went on to win both co-sanctioned USAC-MSCS events
held at Tri-State Speedway in 2013. Sikeston Missouri’s Hunter
Schuerenberg won the very first USAC-MSCS “Spring Showdown” to be
held at the speedway in 2012.
The UMP Open Wheel Modifieds will be included in the Saturday
program. Qualifying for the Sprints is set for 6:30 PM (CST) and racing
will start at 7:30 PM.
