Trevor Latham won the USRA Modified feature.

The second points race of the season at the legendary Tri-State Speedway saw us once again doing battle with Mother Nature at the famous high banks in Pocola, Okla., for a night to race that was free of rain. Fortunately, race day was free from precipitation and even though it was overcast for most of the day with temps in the 50s, the track prep crew, along with volunteers, were able to get the track into a raceable condition for the fans and drivers.

The pre-race ceremonies of the invocation and the National Anthem, for the evening started at 8 p.m., which is now the scheduled start time, due to Daylight Savings Time and the forthcoming summer heat.

The race program started with heat races for all five classes on hand. Heat race lineups were determined by the driver’s season point average, which is the number of points earned divided by the number of races they’ve competed in. Those averages are then inverted so the fastest cars start at the back of their heats with any new cars, or cars without an average, behind them.

At intermission at about 9 p.m., everyone had a chance to grab themselves one of the new “Tommy Burgers” and other hot food that Audrey and her crew had cooking on the grill and get some hot liquid beverages into their system. Also, due to the trophy shop being closed last weekend, last weekend’s winners were presented their trophies.

The first race on the track after intermission was the Out-Pace USRA B-Mods for their feature that saw Hunter Byers win for the second week in a row as Jacob Stoll crossed the line in second ahead of Steve Butler in third.


Hunter Byers won the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.

The USRA Modified feature was the last on the track next and saw Trevor Latham exert his dominance with a strong first place finish over Brandon Hunter and a hard-charging Steve Holzkamper who drove his machine from a 12th-place starting position to end up in third.

Our next upcoming event information will be another night of edge-of-your-seat, heart-pounding excitement point racing scheduled for April 29th. Don’t forget the new starting time of 8 PM with both pit gates and grandstand gates opening at 5 PM. Driver’s meeting is at 7 PM and hot laps are scheduled for 7:30 PM.
