     June 15, 2017 - Haubstadt, IN -  The Hoosier Tire Midwest Sprint Car Series will be racing at Indiana’s Brownstown Speedway on Saturday night June 24th.  The program that night offers fans the expectation of the added excitement that open wheel racing provides.   

 

     Saturday night’s 25 lap MSCS feature at Brownstown will pay $2,000 to win.  Drivers are guaranteed at least $200 to start the main event.  The program will include heat races and a B to set the field for the feature.  MSCS starts 20 or 21 cars depending on the need for the addition of an eligible provisional starter.  The provisional list includes the top 2 drivers from the prior season and the highest other 10 drivers in current MSCS points.  

 

     Upon completion this event will be only the second time that the MSCS series has raced at the ¼ mile Jackson County Fairgrounds oval.  The slightly banked clay track provided a tight MSCS feature in August of  2015.  Brady Short battled Dickie Gaines for the entire distance to take the win.  That was the year that Short won a record 10 features in a single season.   MSCS events which were scheduled there in 2016 and 2014 had to be cancelled  because of rain. 

 

     Marion, Illinois, driver Carson Short continues in leading the 2017 MSCS points standings.  Short took over the points lead on May 13th and has held onto it for 4 consecutive races.  Three time series champ Brady Short ranks second in the standings and the two often find themselves matched up and racing for a position in the feature.  Former Rookie of the Year Brandon Morin is third in the standings.  Four time series champ Kyle Cummins is just 5 points behind Morin.  Brandon Mattox stands fifth.

 

     Max McGhee, Dakota Jackson, Kent Schmidt, Donny Brackett, and James Lyerla round out the Top Ten in points as the series heads to Brownstown.  Rookie of the Year contenders Ben Knight and Kendall Ruble are just outside the top ten. 

 

     MSCS feature events completed elsewhere now total six.  Chase Stockon has won twice on the familiar dirt at Tri-State Speedway.  The two features held at Lincoln Park Speedway were won by Thomas Meseraull and A.J. Hopkins.  Carson Short’s win at Haubstadt in May earned him the points lead. Carson has also been close twice with late race passes to finish as the runner-up.  Chris Windom claimed the other feature which was a USAC-MSCS co-sanctioned event.

 

      In addition to a complete MSCS show on the 24th, Brownstown Speedway will present the make-up NO WAY OUT 40 feature for sprint cars which was postponed from earlier in the season.  The UMRA TQ Midgets also have a make-up feature.  The Racesaver Sprint Cars are to be on the program.  Stock Car fans attending the track on a regular basis will certainly appreciate promoter Jim Price including the Indiana Pro Late Models and the Pure Stocks.

 

 The combined result should be one spectacular night for RACING!  On track action begins at 6 P.M.  Racing will follow the hot laps.  Brownstown Speedway is located a mile southeast of Brownstown, IN, on State Route 250.
