Tri-State Speedway News & Publicity


Posted July 24, 2018



    Haubstadt, IN - July 23, 2018 -  Tri-State Speedway will be racing Saturday night July 28th.  That night Indiana Sprint Week is scheduled to conclude at the quarter mile high banked speed plant. The event should serve as the seventh and final round of  the NOS Energy Drink USAC Indiana Sprint Week.  Weather permitting the top race teams and  fans supporting this cause will have traveled to seven different dirt tracks across the Hoosier state over a nine day period.

     Two of the three races to be held the first weekend dodged wet weather.  The Saturday night show at Kokomo was rained out and reset for Tuesday.  So the competitors are now faced with running the last five nights in a row instead of four.  Car counts for this year s races have been in or near the 40 range.  Strong fields provide starting lineups for each feature that are deep in potential winners.

     Brady Bacon won the feature on Friday night at Plymouth Speedway, a new destination for the week long series within a series.  Current USAC season points leader Tyler Courtney won on Sunday at Lawrenceburg. The five remaining speedways holding races are at Kokomo, Terre Haute,  Putnamville, Bloomington, and Haubstadt.  The USAC regulars are familiar with all these tracks and the different challenges they present.  The excitement builds all week long!

    Following the first two of the seven races scheduled for 2018, Brady Bacon led in Indiana Sprint Week points.  The 2016 and 2014 USAC AMSOIL National Champion was off to a great start.  However that lead is subject to change each time out.  Chris Windom held second in both sprint week and national points.  Windom was the 2017 USAC AMSOIL National Champion.  Kevin Thomas Jr. is the defending ISW Champion and is also in the top ten in points!  There has been consistency in that eight of the top ten in season points also were listed in the top ten in sprint week points.

     The UMP Open Wheel Modifieds will also be featured on this program. The modified drivers will have an added incentive in that they will be racing for $1,000 to win.   Dustin Beck, Trent Young, and Zack Fair have captured modified feature victories at the track so far this season.  Fair has had a top three finish in every one of those features. Their 25 lap feature will be held to conclude the program.

     The pit gate opens at 3 P.M.  Warm-ups begin at 6 P.M.  Hot laps and time trials will precede the heats.  Racing begins at 7:30 P.M.  In presenting a combination of sprint cars and modified cars, the speedway offers one great night of short track open wheel racing.
