mscs midwest sprint car series


Haubstadt, IN – September 1, 2011. This weekend the Hoosier Tire
Midwest Sprint Car Series will be making its fourth appearance of the
season at Tri-State Speedway. The Speedway will be presenting the
Labor Day Weekend Challenge Sunday evening September 4th. The 30 lap
feature event for the 410 non wing sprints will be paying $3,000 to
win and $200 to start. Non qualifiers to the feature will receive
$100 in tow money. This measure should encourage race teams to
travel greater distances and help offset expenses for competitors
encountering problems making the show.

In addition to the total purse being offered, MSCS drivers will be
earning valuable series points. In total just five races remain on
the 2011 season. That schedule is about to become intense with all
five races to be held in a span of six weeks.
Drivers racing this Sunday night will be adding from 20 to 70 points
to the points they have already accumulated. Brady Short has lead
the MSCS Standings since the first race of the season at Lawrenceburg
on May 28th. His current lead of 81 points cannot be overcome in one
race program. It will take solid efforts over two or three race
programs for another driver to overtake him. Two week’s ago at
Lincoln Park Speedway he managed to increase his lead by another 2
points. He finished second in the feature while this closest
challenger in points Braylon Fitzpatrick finished fourth. Catching
the Bedford Blaster will not be an easy task!

The standings for the top five in 2011 MSCS Points did not change
following the Return of MSCS to Putnamville. The MSCS Point Fund is
sponsored by Hoosier Tire Midwest. The top five drivers in points in
order are:

Car Driver Hometown Points

36 Brady Short Bedford, IN 393
3 Braylon Fitzpatrick W. Terre Haute, IN 312 – 81
7 Critter Malone Speedway, IN 292
-101 -20
3x Dakota Jackson Elizabethtown, IN 274
-119 -38 -18
5 Chase Briscoe Mitchell, IN 254
-139 -58 -38 -20

Currently sixth and seventh in the standings and closing in are Kyle
Cummins and Chase Stockon. Both drivers have battled through the
ranks before and know what it takes to reach the top. The two
drivers have taken respective MSCS season titles. After the August
20th outing the two drivers moved up 3 spots each in the standings.

Other drivers moving up but further back in the standings are Seth
Parker, Brandon Mattox, Aric Gentry, Donny Brackett, Wes McIntyre,
Dave Darland, and Ethan Barrow.

Braylon Fitzpatrick continues to lead the Rookie of the Year Points
standings with Kent Schmidt remaining his closest challenger. Casey Riggs
has posted the highest score so far in the race by race quest to be named
as The Hard Charger of the Year. Riggs moved up 12 spots during the
feature on July 30th. Jonathan Hendrick is closest with a run up through
the field August 20th that produced a gain 11 spots.

This Sunday night a lot will be on the line as always when the MSCS
Sprints are pushed off for the Labor Day Weekend Challenge at
Tri-State Speedway. Hot Laps will be held around 6:30 P.M. C.D.T.
with racing to follow at 7:30. The UMP Modifieds will also be racing
