HAUBSTADT, Ind. – Following the first heat of Sunday’s USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship race from Tri-State Speedway, the skies opened up, drenching the quarter-mile dirt oval and forcing cancellation of the event.
Prior to the downpour, in Fatheadz Eyewear Qualifying, Chase Stockon set quick time with a lap of 13.618 seconds, moving him into a tie for 11th on the series all-time list and equaling him with Dave Steele and Kevin Thomas Jr.
Kendall Ruble captured the victory in the first heat race under darkening and threatening skies before the rain hit.
The series returns to action July 5-6 at Iowa’s Knoxville Raceway for the inaugural running of the BRANDT Professional Agriculture Corn Belt Nationals, which culminates with a $20,000-to-win prize going to the winner of Saturday’s finale.
