HARVEST CUP TO FINALIZE SEASON ON OCTOBER 8
Haubstadt, IN - September 28, 2016 - Tri-State Speedway will host
the Harvest Cup on Saturday October 8th. It has become the
championship event for the Hoosier Tire Midwest Sprint Car Series.
This race for 410 non wing sprint cars originated in 2011 to provide
the series with a special event designed to showcase the talents of
the drivers one last time each season.
The Harvest Cup is that one last opportunity to gain valuable points
which could earn a driver a series title and/or a larger share of the
point fund sponsored by Hoosier Racing Tire. The evening provides an
advantageous time to present the MSCS season awards with fans
supporting the series and the track in attendance. The MSCS
Championship Driver, Car Owner, and the Rookie of the Year Awards
await those competitors!
Sprint car drivers present will be competing for a purse which will
award the 30 lap feature winner $3,000. The event will also be the
last race to be held at the speedway in the 2016 season so Sunday
October 9th will serve as a rain date. If racing is held on Sunday
qualifications will begin at 5 P.M. and racing at 6 P.M. Race fans
will be treated to a triple header with the UMP Open Wheel Modifieds
and the MMSA Mini Sprints set to appear on the race card.
In providing increased interest, it should be noted that the MSCS
Points title is still undecided. It most likely will not be decided
until the points are tallied after the feature itself. Brady Short
holds a 28 point margin over Tyler Hewitt. Brandon Morin is just
another 4 points back at a difference of 32 points. Carson Short is
at best a long shot to become this season’s title holder but could
certainly move up higher in the standings. Heat racing provides up
to 10 points and the feature the 40 points that could make a big
Remember on October 8th it will be Racing Times Three! The UMP Open
Wheel Modifieds will be competing for an increased purse at the
Harvest Cup. The American Modified Series feature will pay $1,500 to win.
The mods will also race in an extra feature needed to make up the Summit
race rained out back on June 26th.
It will be the second appearance of the season for the MMSA Mini
Sprints, but this time out they will be running minus the wing on
top. Rick Hench won this year’s previous mini-sprint race at
Tri-State. It all happens at Haubstadt and on the same night!
