THE STAGE IS SET FOR A “SPRING SHOWDOWN” AT TRI-STATE MSCS AND USAC DRIVERS PREPARE TO RACE AT THE HAUBSTADT OVAL
Haubstadt, IN - April 11, 2017. Tri-State Speedway will open the season this coming weekend with a racing program featuring the United States Auto Club Sprint Cars along with those following the Midwest Sprint Car Series. This will be a co-sanctioned event offering fans the ultimate experience in watching exciting 410 non-wing sprint car racing.
USAC AND MSCS competing together on the race card only happens twice a season. Both of these unique shows will be at the fast and challenging quarter mile oval at Haubstadt, IN. The feature will pay
$5,000 to win and $500 to start. For this first combined show on April 15th, all the events on the sprint program will be conducted using the USAC format.
Chase Stockon won the 2016 version of the USAC-MSCS “Spring Showdown”. Brady Bacon won the year prior! This race originated at the track in 2012. The main event will be contested over 30 laps.
The Top Five drivers in the points for USAC at press release time were Justin Grant, Chad Boespflug, Chase Stockon, Hunter Schuerenberg, and Chris Windom. The MSCS Top Five list includes Brent Beauchamp, Jarett Andretti, Brady Short, Jon Stanbrough, and A.J. Hopkins. The ever fast Carson Short is sixth in MSCS points. Jarett Andretti is sixth in USAC Points and is one of a number of drivers who could benefit by earning points in both organizations. Both lists are subject to change this weekend!
The “Spring Showdown” is a great way for race fans to get out and enjoy the thrill of attending a dirt track race. Qualifying on Saturday the 15th should begin about 6:30 P.M. Central Time. Actual racing will begin with the heat races beginning at 7:30 P.M. The UMP Open Wheel Modified Cars will also be racing to create a double bill that adds to the action.
