Hoosier Tire's Black Hills Mini Sprint Tour's

Point Championship Night 

Hoosier Tire's Black Hills Mini Sprint Tour Championship Weekend

               After an exciting 2015 Hoosier Tire's Black Hills Mini Sprint Tour season, the point championship boiled down to 3 races in 2 nights at 1 fast Heartland Speedway in Rapid City, with 5 drivers in contention for the championship.  John Garrigan jr. had a 5 point advantage over Don Taylor, and Tom Peterson, with Blayne Brink and Larry Reub close enough to make it interesting.

               The weather was perfect both nights, and the track was fast, with multiple lanes of racing both nights. Friday night's show was a nail-biter with the top 3 cars all starting from deep in the pack. 3 wide racing was the norm for the 25 lap feature, and when the checkered flag dropped, Newcastle, WY's Logan Hershey (20) held off a hard charging John Garrigan (95j) and Blayne Brink (21). Larry Reub and Don Taylor finished out the top 5. Brink collected the SpeedMart's Hard Charger award for the race, starting 10th and finishing 3rd.

               Saturday Night's racing was just as exciting with the track even better than the night before, if that was possible. The first 20 lap winged feature went caution free, with the checkered flag going to Spearfish, SD's Jason Robbins (50), with Gillette WY's Blayne Brink right on his bumper, even pulling alongside Robbins on the last lap, as lapped traffic made for some exciting strategy. Friday's winner Logan Hershey finished 3rd, while Don Taylor and John Garrigan finished out the top 5. Brandon Mills picked up the SpeedMart's Hard Charger award for the race.

               The second race of Saturday evening was an exciting 20 lap NON-Winged race with Friday nights winner Logan Hershey taking home another trophy to add to his collection. Hershey mastered the super-fast Heartland Speedway and also collected the SpeedMart's Hard Charger award for the race by starting 10th and winning the race. Earlier winner of the evening Jason Robbins finished 2nd, with Don Taylor, Larry Reub, and John Garrigan jr. finishing out the top 5. The scariest incident of the weekend was in the non-winged race when Doug McIntosh (23) came in contact in turn 4 with the spun car of 2015's Rookie of the Year Riley Fremont (808) sending McIntosh into a violent flip, causing the only red flag of the weekend. McIntosh climbed from his car shaken and bruised, but walked away.

               When the dust settled (the only dust of the weekend) John Garrigan jr. was crowned the 2015 Hoosier Tire's BHMST Champion for the 3rd year in a row by only 6 points over 2nd year driver Don Taylor.  Riley Fremont was crowned the 2015 Rookie of the Year.
