Officials from the MSCS Sprint Cars and Track Enterprises, the promotion company of the Terre Haute Action Track, have announced that the 2016 Spring Fling scheduled for Sunday, May 1 has been postponed due to extremely wet grounds and an unfavorable forecast for raceday. The event has been rescheduled for Sunday, August 14.
The event was scheduled to be the second of the 2016 season, after the season opening USAC Silver Crown race in early April. Ironically, the same event last year was nearly postponed as well, due to heavy rainfall across the midwest the day before. The race was run but drivers struggled during the heats before track conditions came in.
The August 14 raindate will feature the same two classes. For the MSCS Sprint Cars, it will make for a great weekend of racing. On Saturday, August 13, they will be racing at their home track, Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, IN for the Hoosier Sprint Nationals, paying $5,000 to win. The Scott’s Custom Colors UMP Modifieds will also be on the Sunday, August 14 card at The Action Track.
Up next on the Terre Haute Action Track schedule is the Tony Hulman Classic for the USAC National Sprint cars on Wednesday, May 25. The event is the first of three for the Track Enterprises promotion, “USAC’s The Week Of Indy”. The Hulman Classic will also feature the Scott’s Custom Colors UMP Modifieds. Fans and drivers then head to the Indiana State Fairgrounds for the Hoosier Hundred on Thursday, May 26 and then to Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis on Friday, May 27 for the Carb Night Classic.
While those attending the Tony Hulman Classic will be able to purchase tickets at the gate on raceday, a presale “Week Of Indy” Superticket is available for a discount if going to all three events. The three day ticket is available for $60, a savings of $15. The three day superticket will be available starting early this week on usacracing.com andtrackenterprises.com.
