Terre Haute IN – Brady Short and Kenny Wallace bloomed in the “Spring Fling” at the Terre Haute Action Track. The “Spring Fling” provided fans the opportunity to see a co-sanctioned race featuring the Midwest Sprint Car Series (MSCS) and King of Indiana Sprint Series (KISS) along with a full field of the best modifieds in the Midwest. Short was the winner of the 25 lap sprint car main, while Wallace was victorious in the Modified division.
Short, a past series champion of both the MSCS and Kiss series, inherited the race lead when mechanical issues forced an early exit for Shane Cottle. On a night when four red flags were displayed for on track incidents, it was clear that the race was all about survival. In the end, Short was able to stretch his lead on the way to his first career win at Terre Haute. Jerry Coons Jr., Carson Short, Kyle Robbins, and Mitch Wissmiller rounded out the top five.
The fifteen lap modified race had multiple lead changes. Paul Miles jumped out to an early lead. However, it wouldn’t be long until a hard-charging Kenny Wallace would catch him. A brief yellow at the midpoint of the race would pack the field. This allowed third place Brian Shaw a great opportunity on the restart. Shaw overtook front runners Miles and Wallace at the green, but his lead would be short lived. Kenny Wallace took the lead in the closing laps and pulled away from the competition to pick up the victory.
