Ken Schrader won the USRA Modified feature.

The 47th consecutive year of racing at the legendary Tri-State Speedway got off to a rocky start with Mother Nature playing her always available trump card to our scheduled activities.

This time close to four inches of rain fell on the originally scheduled day two of this event forcing us to move the event forward one week.

But, the delay may have been a blessing in disguise.

NASCAR veteran driver Ken Schrader, who now races his Federated Auto Parts dirt modifieds, was originally scheduled for the rained out weekend and was not going to be able to attend this weekend due to scheduling conflicts.

However, his plans changed this weekend when his scheduled race was rained out and our weather was perfect.

Not only was Schrader able to race at Tri-State Speedway this weekend, but several other national-level drivers were able to attend, too, including drivers from Iowa, Wisconsin and North Dakota.

The pre-race ceremonies for day three of the 38th Annual Cecil Harlan Memorial Kegger started about 8 p.m. and included an introduction of the late Cecil Harlan’s family that were in attendance including his daughter, granddaughter and three great grandchildren.

That was followed by a memorial reading about Cecil, the invocation and memorial parade lap during the National Anthem with cars carrying the Stars and Stripes.

The race program for night three started with "B" features with those lineups determined by their qualifying on night two and any drivers trying to race their way into the big money "A" features.

At intermission, everyone had a chance to stretch their legs, make any needed pit stops at the restrooms, buy a limited edition Kegger T-shirt or hoodie from Kevin and the Cuztom Graphics guys and get one of the new track burgers that Audrey and her crew had cooking on the grill.

The second race on the track after intermission was the Out-Pace USRA B-Mods for their "A" Feature that saw Stephen Muilenburg of Sparta, Mo., secure the victory over a hard-charging Dean Green of Siloam Springs, Ark.

Daniel Tarkington of Checotah brought his machine home for a third-place finish.

Stephen Muilenburg won the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.

The USRA Modified "A" feature was the last on the track last and saw Schrader, formerly from Fenton, Mo., and now residing in Concord, N.C., survive a few challenges for the win.

Chad Wheeler of Muskogee finished in second ahead of Brian Williams of Fayetteville, Ark., in third.

All race results, including heats, are available on our website at Current track point standings and the 2017 schedule are available there, as well.

Our first track points race of the season in all classes, plus the first appearance of the year for the Southern Outlaw Late Model Series, is next Saturday, April 8.
