Mother Nature Takes Another MSCS Show At Terre Haute

For the second time this season, rainfall has forced the cancellation of the MSCS Sprint Car series appearance at the Terre Haute Action Track. The Scott’s Custom Colors UMP Modifieds were also scheduled to race during the Sunday, August 14 program.

The MSCS Sprints were originally scheduled to run on Sunday, May 1 as part of the Spring Fling at the 1/2 mile oval. Following that rainout, a new date of August 14 was announced for the $3,000 to win show. However, Saturday evening and Sunday morning rains, with a forecast for more later, have put a damper on the show for a second time. The sprints also lost their Saturday night Hoosier Sprint Nationals at Tri-State Speedway.

Up next for the Action Track will be the Jim Hurtubise Classic for the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Cars. The race will be held on Friday, September 16 in conjunction with the Mods.


UMP Modifieds Take On New Name At Terre Haute Action Track
Scott’s Custom Colors UMP Modifieds To Race Sunday

Whether it is USAC Silver Crown, USAC Sprints, MSCS Sprints, or the Indiana Late Model Series, the UMP Modifieds are with them, putting on a great show at the Terre Haute Action Track.   Now the division has a new name, as Scott’s Custom Colors, of Terre Haute, IN has stepped up as title sponsor.

Scott’s Custom Colors was started in 1994 by owner, Scott McDaniel, on the site of the old Fast Track Race Track in Terre Haute.  After continued growth and building additions, Scott’s Custom Colors has taken the lead in customer service, technology, and training.  All of this ensures that each vehicle is repaired correctly and with safety as a priority.

The company has supported auto racing for a long time, with the logo noticeable on a number of cars, including that of Scott’s son Josh, who works for the company and races in the division.  Now, the company has moved forward with naming rights to the division, the Scott’s Custom Colors UMP Modifieds.

“We are thrilled to expand our support of the UMP Modified class to involve the Terre Haute Action Track itself.  We look forward to the future of the class and the track in the Wabash Valley”, owner Scott McDaniel said.

The Scott’s Custom Colors UMP Modifieds are scheduled to be in action this coming Sunday, May 1 as part of the Spring Fling.  Also on the card are the MSCS Sprint cars.  At intermission, the kids from the Terre Haute Quarter Midget Association will be taking a lap around the track in their rides.

Pit gates open at 3:00 on Sunday, grandstands at 4:00, hotlaps begin at 5:00, and racing will begin at 6:30.  Grandstand admission is $20, infield admission is $15, and children 10 and under are free.
