Com Racin’ Fest.”  The winner will receive $3,000.

     Next, MSCS and USAC will race together in the “Spring Showdown” at Tri-State Speedway on April 28th.  This annual co-sanctioned event will pay $5,000 to win!  MSCS and USAC also competes together on September 15th for the “Haubstadt Hustler.”  That event offers the biggest pay-out of the season with $10,000 going to the winner. 

     The “Midwest Madness” show at Tri-State Speedway on May 12th will also include an appearance of  the MOWA Wing Sprints.  The two series will provide separate shows at Haubstadt again on July 14th.  These crowd pleasers are both on Saturday nights!

     Memorial Day weekend beginning on May 25th, MSCS will race at Bloomington Speedway on Friday, Lincoln Park Speedway on Saturday, and Tri-State Speedway on Sunday.  That weekend rates as the only “Triple Trek” of the season.  It all begins with the “Josh Burton Memorial” on Friday.  All 3 feature events will pay $2,500 to win.

     There are two “Double Header” weekends later in the season.  MSCS will go back to back with appearances at Daugherty Speedway and Kickapoo Speedway on June 29th and 30th.  It should be a great match-up of Indiana and Illinois drivers!
