SPRINT STAMPEDE OFFERS WING AND NON WING SPRINTS

Posted June 18, 2015

    Haubstadt, IN - June 17, 2015 -  The next event scheduled to be held
at Tri-State Speedway will be on Saturday night June 27th.  This event
is unlike any other all season at the track in that it will be an all
410 sprint car show with the Hoosier Tire MSCS Sprints appearing on
the same program with the Neal Tire MOWA Winged Sprints.  The feature
for each series at the Southern Indiana Sprint Stampede will pay
$2,000 to win.
     The MOWA sprints, which are presented by Casey’s General Store, have
completed six race programs so far this season.  The ensuing
competition has produced six different feature winners.  The most
recent winner was Joey Moughan.  Moughan who hails from Springfield,
IL, won a rain shortened feature on June 13th.  Drivers frequenting
the series are primarily from Illinois, Missouri, Indiana, and
Wisconsin.  Other drivers winning features this season include Rico
Abreu, Bill Balog, Jerrod Hull, Paul Nienhiser, and Hunter
Schuerenberg.
     MOWA winners at the Southern Indiana Sprint Stampede the previous two
years have been Jerrod Hull and Shane Stewart.  This visit to
Tri-State Speedway is the only time in some 25 races scheduled for
2015 that the MOWA Sprints will race in the Hoosier state.
     Currently the hottest driver on the MSCS circuit is Brady Short.  He
will be looking for a third consecutive MSCS victory on the 27th.  He
has won the last two MSCS features which were both held at Tri-State
Speedway.  Brady won at Haubstadt on May 24 and again on June 6th.  
His versatility is also demonstrated in that overall he has won four
MSCS features this season at three different tracks.  He also leads
the series in points as the drivers prepare for the 10th race on a
twenty race MSCS schedule.
     Carson Short ranks second in MSCS points.  It is just his third year
to compete with MSCS.  He trails Brady Short by just 38 points.  The
two lead a top five that includes Robert Ballou, Jon Stanbrough, and
2014 MSCS Rookie of the Year James Lyerla.  Brandon Morin is sixth in
points and he is the top rookie driver so far this season.
     Robert Ballou was in victory lane at the Stampede a year ago after
outgunning Kyle Cummins and Jeff Bland Jr.  Kevin Thomas Jr. won the
MSCS portion of the inaugural event in 2013.
     Each year that this race is held the possibility of a driver doing
double duty exists.  It is more complicated than adding or taking off
the wing.  Time constraints and changing the set up for the car add
to the difficulty.  And staying focused with the added distractions
would further test the resolve of any racing team.  Very few have
tried.  Robert Ballou was the only driver to do double duty in 2013.
He finished in the top ten in both features!  Last year Kent Schmidt
and Jordan Kinser competed with both series.
     Racing at Tri-State Speedway begins at 7:30 P.M., C.D.T.  The track
is located three miles North of I-64 on Highway 41 at Haubstadt, IN.
Adult tickets are $20, students $15, and children 12 and under are
admitted free.  Reserved seats are available for an additional $3 per
seat.
     Once again on June 27th, Tri-State Speedway will continue to uphold
its’ tradition as the Class Track in presenting a winning combination
with MSCS and MOWA drivers racing at the speedway in the Southern
Indiana Sprint Stampede.  This occasion is designed to double the
excitement for sprint car fans and it all happens the same night!
