SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – The Midwest Open Wheel Ass’n Sprint Car Series presented by Casey’s General Stores makes its first ever stop at Bloomington (Ind.) Speedway this Friday. It follows that up with an appearance at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind., Saturday.
It will be the second stop in as many seasons for the series at Tri-State Speedway.
Friday’s action sees the series at Bloomington Speedway, with pit gates opening at 4:30 p.m., hot laps are 6:30 p.m. and heat races are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at the weekly home of non-wing sprint cars.
Much like the racing is expected to be at Bloomington Speedway, point leader Joey Moughan is in a tight point battle holding just a six-point lead in the MOWA Sprint Car Series presented by Casey’s General Stores championship chase. Three-time and defending series champion Jerrod Hull in second spot. Hull has a series high three wins in 2014, while Moughan has not picked up a win this season.
A.J. Bruns is a distant third in points, while Chris Urish is fourth and Ben Wagoner rounds out the top five.
With the series returning to Tri-State Speedway, as part of the Southern Indiana Sprint Stampede, Bruns returns as the highest finishing series regular, after picking up a second place finish one year ago. Shane Stewart got the win in the series’ first appearance at the famed quarter-mile. Greg Wilson was third, while Hull was fourth and Jimmy Hurley rounded out the top five.
