Haubstadt, IN - May 26, 2019 -  The feature race Sunday night at Tri-State Speedway lived up to its name,  The BRANDEIS Midwest Sprint Car event would conclude as advertised - a Memorial Weekend Classic.  Kyle Cummins of Princeton, IN, was on the move and would be the victor.  It was his second MSCS win in two opportunities to race at Tri-State Speedway this season.


     Kyle Cummins started the evening by setting the fastest overall time during group qualifications.  The Princeton, IN, driver followed that initial effort with a winning performance in the third heat race with Stephen Schnapf his closest rival.  The two would match speeds again during the feature.  Schnapf led the early portion of the event with Cummins in hot pursuit.  He kept the pressure on in the Rock Steady 3R and completed the task with a pass midway through the race.


     C.J. Leary and Kevin Thomas Jr. advanced to finish second and third in the feature.  Schnapf held fourth place at the finish.  Carson Short moved up 13 positions to finish fifth.  The superb effort was tops for the field thus the defending series champion was the Certified Rentals Hard Charger of the race.


     Robert Ballou also made a charge from the back of the field in finishing sixth.  Ballou needed a long visit to the work area after being involved in the incidents in turn three on the first lap of the original start.  It was the first of at least 4 caution flags needed during the feature.  Critter Malone was seventh followed by Donny Brackett, Dakota Jackson, and Brady Short.  Kendall Ruble picked up the Wilwood Tuff Brakes Award. 


    Three heats and a B Main were held during the BRANDEIS Midwest Sprint Car Series preliminary events.  Team mates Kent Schmidt and Chase Stockon won the first two heats with Cummins the victor in the final heat.  Collin Ambrose of Owensboro, KY, was the winner in the B Main which consisted of a 13 car field.  


     The entire racing program was completed following noon time and mid afternoon showers.  The track crew evaluated the situation, made the call, and then quickly prepared the track so racing could go on as scheduled.     


     The next event booked for Tri-State Speedway is one of the top dollar MSCS shows of the season.  The Summer Showdown is scheduled for Saturday June 8th.  It will pay $5,000 to win the BRANDEIS MSCS feature.  The UMP Modifieds and MMSA Mini Sprints will also be competing in the program.


     On Friday May 31st the MSCS Sprints will be competing at the Paragon Speedway.  It will be the first of 3 events to be held the 3/8 mile track this season.  The track is located just off Highway 67 at Paragon, IN.  The MSCS feature will pay $2,000 to win!
