Even by starting from the pole position, Jeremy Bloomberg had his fair share to survive Sunday at Rockford Speedway's Spring Classic.

Bloomberg lost the lead two different times during the first 25 laps of Sunday's 50 lap feature event, only to see both leaders fall out of the race with mechanical issues. The Hampshire Illinois native then had to fend off a late-race charge from former Mid-American Stock Car Series champion Bill Prietzel on his way to victory.

Despite best efforts by event promoters, the Sunday May 29 Chicagoland Showdown featuring the ARCA Midwest Tour, ARCA/CRA Super Series, Mid-American Stock Car Series and Midwest Compact Touring Series at Illiana Motor Speedway has officially been cancelled. It was announced last month that the Schereville, IN speedway would not open for the 2016 season unless a new buyer was found. Since that time, event promoters have exhausted every avenue to return racing to the historic venue.

It’s going to be another exciting season for the Mid American Stock Car Series (MASCS) in 2016 as the season schedule is taking shape along with some other exciting announcements including a new pay structure and some changes in the rules.

This year will mark the second season under series owners Dave Grueneberg and Dawn Bierman who are ready to get the season under way.

“We’re excited about the 2016 season,” said Bierman. “The drivers put on a great show last year and we’re ready for the green flag to wave.”
