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

The fourth points race of the season at the legendary Tri-State Speedway was met with perfect weather conditions courtesy of Mother Nature, along with 117 racers wanting to prove they’re the best. With temps in the mid-80s and a slight southerly breeze, the track prep crew was able to get the track into a very raceable surface. Even though there was, once again some late week rain, the racing surface produced three-wide action all night.

The first race on the track after intermission was the Out-Pace USRA B-Mods for their feature, and Hunter Byers of Rogers, Ark., returned to victory lane for his third win of the season as Daniel Tarkington of Checotah finished in second ahead of Dean Green of Siloam Springs, Ark.

The USRA Modified feature was up next and saw Lonnie Robins of Alma, Ark., take home his first first-place finish of the year over a fast Brian Williams of Fayetteville, Ark., and Myles Newman III of Alma, Ark.


Lonnie Robbins won the USRA Modified feature.
