INDIANA SPRINT WEEK TO CONCLUDE AT TRI-STATE ON JULY 19TH USAC DRIVERS TO COMPETE FOR $5,000 TO WIN & THE CHAMPIONSHIP

tri-state-speedway     Haubstadt, IN – July 15, 2014 –  Indiana Sprint Week for 2014 is already underway.  The series of seven races over a nine day span has continued to attract race fans who enjoy the outstanding dirt track racing that is presented night after night.  Three Hoosier Speedways have already taken a turn at hosting the United States Auto Club Sprint Cars as the introductory weekend concluded Sunday night.

Tri-State Speedway will host the series finale this coming Saturday night July 19th.  The Indiana Sprint Week Champion will be crowned after the feature that night.  The feature winner will receive a check for $5,000.

Three other Hoosier dirt tracks are set to host USAC-ISW Races during this week.  The first of the four remaining races is on Wednesday night at the Terre Haute Action Track followed by events the next two days at Lincoln Park Speedway and Bloomington Speedway.  Then Saturday the action moves to Tri-State Speedway with hot laps and qualifications beginning at 6:30 and racing starting at 7:30 C.D.T.

The fastest laps for non-wing sprints are usually at or near the 13 second mark around the quarter mile oval.

The USAC Sprints have made one appearance at Tri-State Speedway this season.  That show was a USAC-MSCS co-sanctioned event.  The winner was Daron Clayton over closest rivals Brady Bacon and Jon Stanbrough.

Stanbrough won the last ISW feature held at Haubstadt which was during the 2012 season.  Rain fell last year!

Jon Stanbrough won the opening night’s feature at Gas City for this year’s Indiana Speed Week.  Dave Darland was the winner the next night at Kokomo.  Justin Grant was second both nights and Chris Windom finished third both nights.  The third night’s race at Lawrenceburg was rained out during the heat races.  Chase Stockon set fast time that night.  Car counts have been in the forties and fifties!

Both the 2014 USAC season championship and the Indiana Sprint Week title are affected by the outcome of each night’s racing.  Brady Bacon leads the USAC season standings while Dave Darland leads in sprint week points.  This could change several times before Saturday’s finale.  Fans can check usacracing.com for updates each day.  Heading into the second half of the week, point margins are as close as 2 or 3 points!

Former Sprint Week Champions who are active these days on the circuit include Brian Clauson, Chris Windom, Jon Stanbrough, and Dave Darland.

Clauson  and Windom took the titles in 2013 and 2011 respectively.

Stanbrough has won the title twice, the last one coming in 2010.

Darland has been the Indiana Sprint Week titleholder three times with

2007 being the year of his most recent title.

The UMP Open Wheel Modifieds will also be participating in this program.  Five modified features have produced 4 different winners this season.  Levi Kissinger had back to back wins in May.  Zack Fair is the only driver to post a top five finish each night and that included one win.  Other feature winners include Tyler Nicely and Jacob Poel.

Reserve seating is available for events at Tri-State Speedway.  Fans can call 812-768-5995 to order reserved tickets.  Parking and seating are available on both sides of the track for your convenience.  The track is located on U.S. Highway 41 at Haubstadt, IN.
