SUMMER SHOWDOWN NEXT UP FOR MSCS AT TRI-STATE SPEEDWAY

    Haubstadt, IN - June 9, 2016 -  The Midwest Sprint Car Series will
return to the Tri-State Speedway to race on Saturday night June 11th.
The speedway’s“Summer Showdown” will also feature the popular MOWA
Winged Sprint Cars.  It is the first time this season that full sized
non-wing and winged sprint cars will be competing at the speedway as
part of the same program.  The UMP Modified Cars will also race to
provide fans with a triple header of open wheel racing.

     Three MSCS events have been completed so far on the 2016 MSCS
schedule.  Two of those have been held at Tri-State Speedway.  Chase
Stockon won both of those features.  But the driver who has
accumulated the most points so far in 2016 is defending MSCS Champion
Brady Short.  Short also won the 2015 “Summer Showdown” with Carson
Short finishing second.  Brady Short is the all time leader in series
feature wins with 21.  He is looking for that first MSCS win in 2016.
 The feature winner will receive $2,000.

     Brandon Morin is currently second in the series points. Morin was
last year’s MSCS Rookie of the Year!  He is off to a good start this
season.  He trails Short by just 31 points.  The two lead a top five
that includes Kyle Cummins, Nevil Algie, and Carson Short.  Nevil
Algie rates as the top rookie driver so far this season.  C.J. Leary,
Dakota Jackson, Tyler Hewitt, Jared Chastain, and Mitch Wissmiller
round out the top ten performers based on points.  Hewitt and
Chastain are among the nine rookies that are competing with MSCS and
checking out opportunities in running with the series this season.

     The MOWA Sprint Car Series is a regional traveling organization
supported by experienced winged sprint drivers with home bases
primarily in Illinois and Missouri.  So far this season they have
competed four times with all the tracks involved being located in
Illinois.  This is the first opportunity for Tri-State race fans to
watch them in the Hoosier State.  Indiana based sprint car drivers
who have competed with MOWA this season so far include Spencer
Bayston, Bryan Clauson, Kody Kinser, Parker Price-Miller, and Jacob
Wilson.  This event is a closer opportunity for others to participate
in.

     The MOWA Points leader is Jerrod Hull from Sikeston, MO.  He has also
won two of their four feature events.  Parker Price-Miller, Jake
Blackhurst, Bret Triplett, and A.J. Bruns round out the top five in
points.  The series is sponsored by Neal Tire and Auto Service.

     The UMP Modifieds will be putting in their fourth appearance this
year at Haubstadt.  Illinois driver Mark Lamont has taken two of the
three features held on the quarter mile oval.  Levi Kissinger took
the season opener.  Kissinger will be looking for win number two.
Lamont will be going for three in a row!  Zach Fair has two runner-up
finishes and will be one of the many other drivers capable of and
looking for that first win.  Josh Harris of Owensboro, KY, won last
year’s Modified “Summer Showdown”.

     Racing at Tri-State Speedway begins at 7:30 P.M., C.D.T.  Hot laps &
group qualifying will begin an hour earlier.  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.

     So once again on June 11th, Tri-State Speedway will continue in its
goal to provide the very best in auto racing entertainment.  The MSCS
and MOWA Sprints racing at the Class Track for the Summer Showdown is
a winning combination.  It is double the sprint car action and triple
the racing excitement with the UMP modifieds also competing on the
program.  There will be laps and laps of feature racing excitement to
conclude the three separate programs.
