On a night that only be described as surprisingly pleasant for early April, with a green flag temperature of about 75 degrees and the ever-present southerly breeze, another night of point racing for the 2015 season got underway at 6:45 PM.
The first order of business this week was to honor last weekend’s (April 4th) A Feature winners with their trophies and photo taking on the pass through in front of the grandstands after the pre-race ceremonies of the invocation and the national anthem.
Heat racing action for all 53 cars took to the track just a few minutes past the 7 PM mark and were ran without too many cautions taking the grandstand crowd on hand to intermission a little after 8 PM. The intermission break of about 20 minutes gave everyone the chance to stretch their legs a little as they walked to the all-new concession for some of the awesome BBQ sandwiches, ribs, burgers and hot dogs, as well the requisite fries and nachos, while washing it all down with some ice cold Coca-Cola products. Some of the crowd even took advantage of the desert offerings as several plates of funnel cakes were seen throughout the grandstands as the feature racing began on the famous high banks.
The first A Feature action was for the Pure Stocks with Miranda Carver (40 – Lockesburg, AR) taking home the win over the previous two week’s winner Dennis Slader (19 – Muskogee, OK) while Pure Stock newcomer Wesley Bourne (5 – Cameron, OK) rounded out the top three.
The Front Wheel Drive A Feature had Cody Smith (13 – Booneville, AR) crossing the finish line ahead of Roger Rusher (3 – Ozark, AR) while Tom Paulson (4 – Spiro, OK) crossed the line in third.
The Factory/I Stocks ran a Dash-For-Cash with last week’s feature winner, Chris Patterson (48 – Muldrow, OK) taking home the winner’s money. Shelly Carver (48X – Lockesburg, AR) finished second and Jerome Heinrich (4+4 – Huntsville, AR) in third.
The IMCA Modifieds took to the track next for their A Feature. Tate Cole (89 – Fort Gibson, OK) made it three for three in 2015 at Tri-State Speedway with another win ahead of Van Gemmill (21 – Ponca City, OK) and Zane Hunter (1/2 – Alma, AR).
In the Super Stock feature competition, Neil Johnston (17 – Fort Smith) worked hard for his first A Feature win of the season as Robert Knowles (44K- Buffalo Valley, OK) finished ahead of Gene Davlin (26 – Shady Point, OK) in second and third respectively.
The last feature on the track was the IMCA Sport Mods. 14 year old Kayden Menasco (49 – McAlester, OK) took over the lead just past the midway point in the feature from Ryan Adams (25 – Fort Smith, AR) who finished third behind Logan Ellis (118).
