Kyle Ledford won the USRA Modified feature.

The 13th points race of the season at the legendary Tri-State Speedway saw three first-time winners with two others repeating their feats. Mother Nature was everyone’s friend this previous week with cooler than normal temperatures and plenty of time for the new track management to extensively prep the track after a few weeks off.

The pre-race ceremonies for the 9th Annual Tillman Evans Memorial kicked off at 7:50 p.m. with a brief history about the late Tillman Evans. The invocation by Creyson Hoover followed, as well as the playing of the National Anthem while a few parade laps, led by Tillman’s grandson, Ty Evans.

The third feature on the track was for the Out-Pace USRA B-Mods. Kevin Guinn of Fayetteville, Ark., went to victory lane for the third time this season as points leader Lonny Flanagan ttook home second place over Chad Summerford.

Kevin Guinn won the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.

The USRA Modifieds took to the high banks next for their feature. Kyle Ledford of Greenwood, Ark., was able to pick up his second win of the season over Tate Cole. George Martin repeated his previous performance with a third-place finish. The class points lead remains with Trevor Latham.

Tri-State Speedway will return to action again on Aug. 31-Sept. 2 for the Bravado Wireless USRA Modified Fall Classic that will feature a possible $3,000 to win over two days. Complete information on this event can be found at www.Tri-StateSpeedway.com.

Don’t forget the new starting time of 8 p.m. with both pit gates and grandstand gates opening at 5. Driver’s meeting is at 7 and hot laps are scheduled for 7:30.
