Johnny Bone Jr. won Sunday's USRA Modified feature.

The fifth points race of the season for the Out-Pace USRA B-Mods and USRA Modifieds at the legendary Tri-State Speedway was met with different weather conditions for each of the four nights. Temps in the mid-80s for practice night, mid-90s on night one, storm threats on night two and perfect conditions for the final night created different track conditions for the drivers and track prep crew each day. Everyone worked hard and the racing surface produced three and four-wide action on almost every night of this first annual event.

The pre-race ceremonies of each race night started with the invocation and the National Anthem. The final night of the event, included a memorial reading, a moment of silence, the playing of Taps and the National Anthem while drivers paraded around the track with American flags in a salute and remembrance of our fallen military heroes.

At intermission each night, everyone had a chance to grab themselves one of the new “Tommy burgers”, fried bologna and fresh smoked BBQ sandwiches and other food items that Audrey and her crew had cooking on the grill along with an ice-cold Coca-Cola product to wash it all down.

In the Out-Pace USRA B-Mods, Daniel Tarkington of Checotah took the win ahead of Chad Summerford and Johnny Virden on Friday. On Sunday, Johnny Bone Jr. of Pea Ridge, Ark., topped the USRA Modified feature ahead of Kayden Menasco and Brent Holman.

Daniel Takington won Friday's Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.

Tri-State Speedway will be closed on June 3. Our next scheduled event will be another night of edge-of-your-seat, heart-pounding excitement point racing for all classes, plus the second appearance of the season for the Southern Outlaw Late Model Series, scheduled for June 10. Don’t forget the new starting time of 8 p.m. with both pit gates and grandstand gates opening at 5 p.m. Drivers meeting is at 7 and hot laps are scheduled for 7:30.
