The Midwest Sprint Car Series (MSCS) made its first-ever appearance at Gas City I-69 Speedway on Friday night, May 4, 2018. Kevin Thomas Jr. started on the second row inside, worked his way to the front and held on to win the $3,000 winner’s purse. The USAC and BOSS sanctioned sprints were idle in the area on Friday, which led to a field of 20 non-wing sprints showing up with competitors from both of the series.

Following Thomas Jr. across the finish line was the “Macho Man” Brady Bacon, who had started on the front row outside. “The Throttle” Shane Cottle finished in third having started in the second row outside. Greenwood, Missouri, native Clinton Boyles started on the pole and held on to finish 4th, and fan favorite Thomas Meseraull (T-Mez) moved up two places from his starting position to round out the top five.
