Brian Williams won the USRA Modified feature.

The first points race of the 47th consecutive year of racing at the legendary Tri-State Speedway had 78 cars battling it out on the famous high banks for their head start towards the big prize at the end of the season. Even though we were a week behind thanks to Mother Nature, we should be caught up with our regular schedule at this point.

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

With it being the first points race of the season, lineups were determined by a pill draw at the driver sign in window. Lineups for future point races throughout the remainder of the season will be determined by the driver’s point average, which is the number of points earned divided by the number of races they’ve competed in.

The first race on the track after intermission was the Out-Pace USRA B-Mods for their feature that saw Hunter Byers of Rogers, Ark., ride his pole position starting spot to the win over Daniel Tarkington of Checotah Lonny Flanagan of Rudy, Ark.


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

The USRA Modified feature was the last on the track next and saw Brian Williams of Fayetteville, Ark., take his 10th-place starting machine all the way to the front for the win over Kyle Ledford of Greenwood, Ark.,, who started sixth, and polesitter Brent Holman of Rogers, Ark.

All race results and points standings are available at www.Tri-StateSpeedway.com.

Our next upcoming event will be another night of edge-of-your-seat, heart-pounding excitement point racing scheduled for Saturday, April 22. Don’t forget the new starting time of 8 p.m. with both pit and grandstand gates opening at 5, drivers meeting at 7 and hot laps at 7:30.
