Daniel Tarkington finished third in the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod main event to clinch the 2018 track championship.

The 10th Annual Tillman Evans Memorial and 48th Annual Points Championship Night was a great success with over 100 cars taking in the famous high banks in Pocola, Okla. Mother Nature upped the temperatures once again to the low 90s with a southerly breeze for Saturday night’s action. In what has become the norm this season, the track prep once again produced three and four-wide points racing action for the entire night.

The pre-race ceremonies started at 7:24 with the invocation along with several cars presenting the American flag during the national anthem. Right after the parade lap, a brief history of the late Tillman Evans racing career was read. Tillman actually only raced three times, retiring with a 66.6% wining average, but was the one of the original idea people behind the mighty Tri-State Speedway and was the primary builder of the legendary facility. He was also a long-time engine builder and friends with everyone in the area racing scene.

Heat races were determined by the driver’s draw at sign in. The driver’s advanced to their features via a random car invert drawn by the last heat race winner of each class.

The Out-Pace USRA B-Mods saw Hunter Byers of Rogers, Ark., take home his third win of the season over Steve Holzkamper of Gentry, Ark., and Daniel Tarkington of Checotah.

The last feature on the track was for the USRA Modifieds and Lonnie Robins of Alma, Ark., took the win. Brent Holman of Rogers, Ark., finished in second as Kyle Ledford of Greenwood, Ark., took home third.

The Tri-State Speedway would like to congratulate Tarkington on his Out-Pace USRA B-Mod track championship. Tarkington raced in 15 features and ended up with 12 top-tens, 12 top-fives and two wins. A total of 99 different drivers raced in this class in 2018.

The Tri-State Speedway would like to congratulate Michael Hines of Van Buren, Ark., on his USRA Modified track championship. Hines raced in 15 features and ended up with 12 top-tens and 5 top-fives. A total of 64 different drivers raced in this class in 2018.
