$10,000 IS TOP PRIZE IN HAUBSTADT HUSTLER

Posted September 11, 2015

A CO-SANCTIONED SPRINT CAR RACE FOR MSCS AND USAC

     Haubstadt, IN - September 11, 2015 -  The biggest paying event of the
season is next on the schedule for the Hoosier Tire Midwest Sprint
Car Series.  The Haubstadt Hustler at Tri-State Speedway will pay
$10,000 to the winner of the 40 lap feature.  This event has been
co-sanctioned with the United States Auto Club since 2011.  The two
sanctioning bodies racing in a combined show provides one of the best
opportunities for race fans to watch the most successful and
competitive drivers in the sport.

     This year the Hustler will be held on Saturday night September 19th
at the Haubstadt quarter mile oval.  The eighth annual event will be
conducted using the MSCS format which is based on the use of passing
points.  So qualifications will not be held.

     This event will be the third time this season that MSCS & USAC have
competed together in the same program.  The other two features were
held in April.  Bryan Clauson won the Bloomington co-sanctioned race
and Brady Bacon was victorious at Haubstadt.  The runner-up finishers
on those two nights were Jon Stanbrough and Robert Ballou.

     Until last year the Haubstadt Hustler had produced a different winner
every time it was held.  That ended last September when Daron Clayton
won the Hustler for a second time.  Clayton’s two wins were
remarkable drives up through the pack from distant 18th and 11th
starting spots.  Jeff Bland Jr. has the distinction of winning the
inaugural event in 2008.  The list of other former winners include
Bryan Clauson, Jon Stanbrough, Casey Riggs, and Kevin Thomas Jr.  The
list of capable drivers who have the ability to win the Haubstadt
Hustler, the attractive purse, and the prestige this race represents
is much, much longer.

     The current Hoosier Tire Midwest Series Points leader is Brady Short.
 Short has nine victories on the tour this season.  Carson Short, who
is second, gained a dozen points with a fourth place finish in the
most recent MSCS feature held.  James Lyerla is third place in the
points.  Donny Brackett has moved up to fourth in points.  Robert
Ballou rounds out the top five in the MSCS standings.  MSCS drivers
will receive full points on the 19th.

     The current USAC National Sprint Car Points leader is Robert Ballou.
Chase Stockon  trails him by 18 points heading to the next race at
Terre Haute on September 18th.  Dave Darland, Brady Bacon, and Jon
Stanbrough complete the top five in points.  Ballou’s nine feature
victories tops that circuit so far in 2015.  The talent pool is deep!
 A dozen different drivers have won USAC sprint car features this
season.

     The pit gate at Haubstadt opens at 3:30 P.M.  Hot laps are scheduled
to begin at 6:30.  Heat races will begin at 7:30 P.M.  Fans and teams
traveling from the North and East need to remember that Tri-State
Speedway operates on Central time. The UMP Open Wheel Modified cars
will be racing on the program.
