Ballou Rules Lincoln Park MSCS Run
PUTNAMVILLE, Ind. – Robert Ballou won the 30 lap Hoosier Tire Midwest Sprint Car feature Saturday night at the Lincoln Park Speedway.
The Rocklin, Calif., driver brought a new Maxim to the track and it performed well. Ballou had a perfect night in winning his heat race as well as the feature. He was excited about his victory and the new car as he was interviewed in victory lane.
“This shows you that Maxim Race Cars are among the best in the business,” Ballou said.
Ballou’s victory was his eighth in MSCS competition. That ties him with Brady Short at third on the All Time Winner’s List. Ballou started fourth in the feature and took over the lead from Dakota Jackson on lap nine.
Chase Stockon was the runner-up in the MSCS feature for the second week in a row. Stockon pushed the GBR Sprinter hard to stay one to two car lengths behind Ballou lap after lap. He looked and looked for an opportunity. But the opportunities expired as the laps ran out. The entire feature stayed green.
“I rode along behind trying not to make a mistake. And he ran a perfect 30 laps,” Stockon said.
Lincoln Park regular Brent Beauchamp finished third. He started fifth and was in the race long battle for a top five spot.
“It was a good night to finish strong with MSCS here,”Beauchamp said.
Dakota Jackson turned in his best feature run this season in finishing fourth. Chad Boespflug moved up five hard fought spots to take fifth.
