MSCS WILL BE BACK IN ACTION SATURDAY AT LINCOLN PARK SPEEDWAY
Haubstadt, IN - July 5, 2018 - The Hoosier Tire Midwest Sprint Car
Series will be in action again this Saturday night the 7th. It is
July and time for the “Bill Gardner Sprintacular” at Lincoln Park
Speedway which will follow the July 4th holiday this year.
Non-wing sprint car owners and drivers have two opportunities to race
at the track over the weekend. USAC will be racing on Friday night
with MSCS appearing Saturday to close out the two day event. For
fans and competitors, it will be two successive days of non-wing
sprint car racing with virtually no added travel.
The racing program at Lincoln Park Speedway is the fourth annual
event named in honor of Bill Gardner who was the founder of the
Indiana Open Wheel website which continues to serve as a popular
forum supporting open wheel racing. Both races pay well! The MSCS
feature on Saturday will pay $4,000 to win!
MSCS has already completed the first half of the 2018 season. There
are just 8 races left of the 19 scheduled over the season. Upon
completion this event will add the ninth set of results to the record
book. Three shows have fallen to weather. However there is ample
time for new or additional drivers to join the tour and work their
way up through the points standings. Drivers can compete by
purchasing a license or a lower priced temporary permit. Forty two
drivers carry 2018 MSCS licenses.
After MSCS appearances at the Daugherty and Kickapoo Speedways this
past weekend, the points standings changed and that race tightened.
Brandon Mattox now leads the standings. He joined winner Carson
Short and runner-up Jon Stanbrough on the podium last Saturday night.
Carson Short is currently second in the standings. Heat races award
up to 10 points! The difference between first and second in the
current standings is less than that. Two points! Donny Brackett is
The eight MSCS features completed this season have produced 6
different winners. Two drivers have been repeat winners! Kevin
Thomas Jr. and Carson Short have taken two wins each. Tyler
Courtney, Chase Stockon, and Thomas Meseraull have enjoyed a feature
win to add to career totals. Stephen Schnapf collected that
memorable first ever MSCS victory.
Kevin Thomas Jr. won the “Bill Gardner Sprintacular” for MSCS Sprints
last season. Thomas Meseraull was the winner in 2016. Robert Ballou
took the inaugural event on July 3, 2015!
Expect a formable pack of drivers to be at Lincoln Park to compete.
The sprint cars will take the track at 6 P.M. Eastern Daylight Time on
Saturday at Putnamville. Group qualifying will set the fields for the
heats to follow.
