Sikeston, Missouri’s Hunter Schuerenberg captured his second-straight AMSOIL National Sprint Car Main Event on Saturday night at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Indiana. The win in the “Spring Showdown” that featured a co-sanction with the Midwest Sprint Car Series made Schuerenberg the winningest driver in the series over the past two seasons with six triumphs.

“I like winning at Haubstadt – it’s a great track with a great crowd, and it’s always great to get another USAC win,” Schuerenberg said after completing the non-stop 30-lapper.

Jon Stanbrough leads the series standings into this Friday’s “Larry Rice Classic” at Bloomington Speedway, a race to honor the legacy of a man who racked up accomplishments in many roles in the sport. Rice was a winner in all three divisions of USAC competition and is still remembered as one of the great ambassadors of the sport.

Schuerenberg was also a winner at Bloomington in 2011, an Indiana Sprintweek event in July. Chris Windom won last year’s “Rice Classic” in May.
