June 21, 2019 -  Haubstadt, IN -  The Brandeis Midwest Sprint Car Series will return to action with a special appearance at Indiana’s Brownstown Speedway on Saturday night June 29th.  The MSCS Sprint Car feature will pay $2,000 to win and $200 to start.  MSCS starts 20 cars in the feature and offers one provisional spot to the highest eligible driver from the series who did not transfer during the heats or B Main.

     The non-wing touring series will be featured in a program which will include two other open wheel classes of cars - the MMSA Mini Sprints and UMRA TQ Midgets.  In addition the Pro Late Models and Pure Stocks will also be competing to provide a widely varied program to appeal to one and all.

     This will only 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.

     The last time that MSCS raced at Brownstown was in June of 2017.  The feature that night was a victory for Brady Short in route to a fourth MSCS Championship. Brady Short was also the winner there in August of 2015.  MSCS events scheduled to be held at Brownstown Speedway in 2018, 2016 and 2014 were all cancelled  because of rain. 

     Princeton, IN, driver Kyle Cummins has 358 points and commands the lead in the 2019 Brandeis MSCS Points Standings.  Cummins is 34 points ahead of  closest rival Brady Short of Mitchell, IN.  Both run well at Brownstown.  Cummins won the NO WAY OUT 40 non-sanctioned race at the track earlier this spring.  Short has recorded the two previous MSCS wins there.  Donny Brackett of Fort Branch, IN, stands third in points.  Series regulars Stephen Schnapf and Brandon Mattox round out the Top Five heading to Brownstown.  

     Aric Gentry has accumulated 272 points.  He ranks sixth.  Dakota Jackson is just another two points back.  Kent Schmidt, Jordan Kinser, and Joe Stornetta Jr. round out the Top Ten.  Rookies Chayse Hayhurst and Kyle Hathaway rank 11th and 13th in the series standings.  

     MSCS has held five features so far this season.  Kyle Cummins has won three of those five features.  Finishing second to Cummins on those three occasions were Donny Brackett, C.J. Leary, and Dakota Jackson.  Robert Ballou won the Josh Burton Memorial  at Bloomington Speedway with Cummins finishing second.  Kevin Thomas Jr. won the feature the next night at Lincoln Park Speedway with Dave Darland running second.   

     It should be one SPECTACULAR night for RACING!  Cars will take the track 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.



    The  USAC Sprints will join with MSCS in a co-sanctioned event at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, IN, on Sunday June 30th.  This is the make-up date for the rained-out and rescheduled SPRING SHOOTOUT.  The winner will receive $5,000.  The event will wrap up an exciting weekend of racing.
