The Midwest Sprint Car Series announced that it will be running a substantially shorter schedule next season and possibly may not sanction any races for the 2001 calender year. Club president and founder, Chuck Priefer, made the announcement and cited personal family developments as the reason for the season off. "There is just a lot of things going on right now that need to be taken care of, and I've got to put that first. This is by no means the end of the MSS or my involvement with the series. There are just other important issues to deal with at this time, and I just hope that everyone will understand. The MSS is hoping return to a full schedule in 2002." Priefer did not rule out the possibility of a few sanctioned shows throughout the course of the summer, but nothing has been planned as of yet. Any announcements concerning these events will be made accordingly. "This is really unfortunate as the MSS was really hoping to build off the success of last season and was trying to build a strong base of sprint car racing in the Twin Cities area", Priefer added. Last season the MSS had an astonishing 7 winners in 8 races at 3 tracks and crowned veteran Roger Rager as the 2000 champion. The MSS would like to thank all of their sponsors, drivers, teams, promoters, and fans for supporting the season in its inaugural season and hopes for their continued support in the future. Any further questions on the MSS can be directed to Chuck Priefer at cpriefer@mediaone.net or Justin Zoch at jzoch@gac.edu
