Haubstadt, IN - May 27, 2018 -  Chase Stockon of Fort Branch, IN, picked up his first Midwest Sprint Car Series victory of the season in winning the “Memorial Weekend Classic” at Tri-State Speedway Sunday evening.  Stockon’s entry was sponsored by Angle Buildings, Dewig Meats, and Ted Brown’s Quality Care.   


     Stockon led every one of the 25 laps but had some fast company in the form of Robert Ballou who was persistent in looking for a way to pass Stockon.  Stockon’s Fisher powered DRC sprint was really fast.  Fast enough to win!  Ballou took second ahead of a closing Stephen Schnapf, Kyle Cummins, and C.J. Leary.  Schnapf was also fast and on the move having started eighth.  Earlier his 13.523 lap had led all qualifiers


     Another mover was MSCS Points leader Carson Short.  The Marion, IL, driver was sixth at the finish of the feature after starting 8 rows back in the field.  The push forward earned him the Keizer Aluminum Wheels Hard Charger of the Race Award.   Aric Gentry took a newly constructed car to a seventh place finish.  Kellen Conover, Chet Williams, and Jadon Rogers rounded out the top ten.  Garrett Aitkens was eleventh and he received the Wilwood Tuff Brakes Award for a second night in a row.


     The feature race was not completed without an incident.  There was a caution period on lap 8 when three or four cars got together in turn four.  The three preliminary heat races were quick events interrupted only twice by yellow flags.  The winners were Robert Ballou, Chase Stockon, and Aric Gentry.


     The MSCS Sprints will return to Tri-State Speedway for a co-sanctioned show on Saturday night June 9th.  Also racing in the combined event that night will be the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprints in what promises to be a real Midwest Showdown.  The top prize is $5,000!
