Trevor Latham won the USRA Modified feature.

The ninth points race of the season at the legendary Tri-State Speedway was a night of repeat winners. The 46th Annual Firecracker Spectacular and 5th Annual Curtis Tennant Memorial presented by Shamrock Bolt & Screw Company was forced to scramble by none other than Mother Nature herself. Thanks also to Crey Hoover Land and Cattle Company for assisting with the weekend’s events.

Along with the huge fireworks display and the added money for the Out-Pace USRA B-Mods by and Green Country Poultry Litter, making it a $600-to-win race, 77 cars provided an incredible show for the packed grandstands.

The pre-race ceremonies started just before 8 p.m. with a memorial reading about the late Curtis Tennant. The invocation followed and during the National Anthem, several drivers, led by Jeff Tennant and Gerry Vaughn, made two parade laps while presenting our nation’s flag and several memorial flags honoring Curtis.

The first race on the track after intermission was the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature where Dean Green of Springdale, Ark., returned to victory lane for the third time this season which tied the number of wins of the second-place driver, Hunter Byers. Lonny Flanagan repeated his third-place finish from the previous week but remains the points leader with a 62-point margin.

Dean Green won the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.

The USRA Modifieds took to the high banks last for their feature. Trevor Latham of Rogers, Ark., took home his third win of the season and remains the class points leader. Kreg Dobson charged through the field for a second-place finish over last week’s winner, Brent Holman.

The Tri-State Speedway will be off this coming weekend and will return to action on Saturday night, July 15, with a full night of racing in all five classes. Don’t forget the new starting time of 8 p.m. with both pit gates and grandstand gates opening at 5. The drivers meeting is at 7 and hot laps are scheduled for 7:30.
