Winner Cody Trammell Winner Cody Trammell



Bloomington, Indiana (June 7, 2019)………Friday night, MMSA visited the beautiful, red clay of Bloomington Speedway. Not only did we have the chance to entertain the thousands in attendance for the NOS Energy Midget Series, we also were streaming live on FloRacing.com to thousands more across the world. Our drivers did not disappoint and put on a great show for everyone watching both at the track and across the nation. Both nights we had 25-26 in attendance!

Heat number one gave Kinser Medler the opportunity to stretch the legs on the backup car (that he didn't intend on using for this week’s racing action) and, after some changes from the night before it proved to be a rocket. Kinser had some stiff competition in heat one with the likes of multi-time winners Brad Strunk and Brandon Coffey. However, Kinser jumped out to a lead and never looked back, winning heat number one.

Heat two brought a new face to ranks of heat race victory lane. Adam Schmenk went from a car in shambles, being lifted onto a trailer a mere eleven hours before, to winning his heat and picking up his first ever MMSA heat race victory. He had the strong cars of Cody Trammell and Ryan Barr chasing him down, but they weren't able to catch Schmenk.

Heat three had the 14-year-old Jac Nickles piloting the yellow number 31 to victory after coming off his first ever feature win in a mini sprint the night before at Lincoln Park Speedway.

Our feature was set, once we did our invert, and we found two of the strongest lightning sprints in the country on the front row. Cody Trammell and Brad Strunk were the first to see the green flag drop as they came off the historic turn number four of the Bloomington Speedway, where so many battles have been won and lost. It didn't take long for Brad Strunk to jump out to an early lead, only to find himself sitting on the outside of the back stretch facing the wrong way after making contact with an ailing car coming off of turn two.

Cody Trammell then took over the lead and though Ryan Barr was able to close the gap several times he just was not able to overtake him. Trammell would go on to win at his home track once again.

On a personal note from Shaun Waters:

The last two nights have been some of the best racing we have seen across the country and we have to thank our drivers for that! You have made it so much fun to be able to call the action on the track and really show fans across the country how great lightning sprint racing can be. I know not all of you knew it was being streamed across the world but you should hold your head high as the fans were treated to two amazing nights of lightning sprint action. I had the opportunity to announce with some of the absolute best in the business the last two nights and after talking with them I know you all should be proud.
