Be sure to check back to this page for updates on the series and to see when we may be hosting a Customer Appreciation event in your area. And a special thanks to our partner, Komatsu, for making our sponsorship possible. 

October 19 2019 - Tri State Speedway

The “ Harvest Cup “ at Tri-State Speedway on Saturday night, October 19, 2019, brought a close to the Brandeis Midwest Sprint Car Series  season. Brandeis MSCS was matched up with the USAC National Midget Series and the MMSA Mini Sprints to make for a great night of racing.

The Brandeis MSCS Sprints had 4 heat races won by Kyle Cummins, Kent Schmidt, Stephen Schnapf, and C.J. Leary. The “B Main” was won by Dakota Jackson. This set the field for a great feature race on Saturday.

Come feature time it was time to break out the broom, as Kyle Cummins finished off the season with a win, which meant he had swept all 8 feature races held at “The Class Track” this year. Quite an accomplishment at any track, much less one where the competition was provided by both the Brandeis MSCS and co- sanctioned events with USAC. Kyle was followed by Stephen Schnapf in second and Shane Cottle in third. Critter Malone picked up the “ Certified Rental Hard Charger Award” after advancing 8 spots in the feature.

The other big news of the night, is that Brandeis Machinery will be back as the title sponsor of the series in 2020. It has been a great year and we look forward to bigger and better things. Stay tuned for updates and news.
