     June 13, 2018 - Haubstadt, IN -  The Hoosier Tire Midwest Sprint Car Series will be back in action with an appearance at Indiana’s Brownstown Speedway on Saturday night June 23rd.  The racing program that night will be highlighted with the MSCS Sprint Car feature which will pay $2,000 to win and $200 to start.  The non-wing sprint portion of the program will include a slate of heat races and a B to set the field for the feature.  MSCS normally starts 20 cars but one provisional spot will be available if there is an eligible driver from the series who did not transfer.  


     This will be the third appearance at Brownstown Speedway for MSCS.   This track is located at the Jackson County Fairgrounds and is a slightly banked ¼ mile oval.  The series often races at ¼ mile facilities.  Last year’s feature there was a victory for MSCS Series Champion Brady Short.  In August of  2015 it was also Brady Short who battled Dickie Gaines for the entire distance to take the win.  MSCS events which were scheduled at Brownstown in 2016 and 2014 were cancelled  because of rain. 


     Marion, IL, driver Carson Short continues to lead the 2018 MSCS Points Standings.  Short is up 55 points over closest rival Brandon Mattox of Cory, IN.  Mattox is off to a great start on the season.  Hard charger Robert Ballou currently ranks third.  Ballou has two runner-up MSCS feature finishes while that next win eludes him.  Series regulars Donny Brackett and Kent Schmidt round out the top five.  


     Aric Gentry heads the second five in accumulated points.  Kyle Cummins is seventh followed by Garrett Aitken, Kevin Thomas Jr., and Collin Ambrose.  Former Rookie of the Year Brandon Morin is just outside the Top Ten in eleventh.  


     MSCS has held six features so far this season.  Kevin Thomas Jr. dominated in winning the first two feature events.  Then Stephen Schnapf changed the trend with a breakout win at Tri-State in early May.  Memorial Weekend events produced three different winners in Tyler Courtney, Carson Short, and Chase Stockon.  Courtney was second in the feature held at Brownstown last year.


     In addition to a complete MSCS show on the 23rd, Brownstown Speedway will present the winged Racesaver Sprints, the UMRA TQ Midgets, and the Open Wheel Modifieds.  The expectation of added excitement exists throughout the pits.  Track promoter Jim Price has an all out open wheel spectacular planned for spectators to witness and enjoy. 


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