Tri-State Speedway track promoter Dan King has officially announced the 2016 class information. Tri-State Speedway will be hosting races weekly in six different classes. These will include classes for both the novice and advanced racer and will include both stock-bodied cars and open wheel modifieds.
The track will continue as an IMCA sanctioned track with three classes competing in 2016. These will include the IMCA Stock Car, IMCA Sport Mods and the IMCA Modifieds. All three of these classes will require a 2016 IMCA license to compete weekly and to be eligible for local track points and awards, plus state, regional and national championship points and awards.
The Pure Stocks and Super Stocks will compete this season for local track points and awards, as well as a Top 10 point fund and will require a $25 registration fee to be paid no later than April 30th, 2016. A driver must also compete in 70% of the eligible point races for these two classes in order to receive Top 10 point fund money.
The final class that will run on a weekly basis in 2016 is the TSS Modifieds. Once again, this class will utilize the USRA Modified rules, but will also be sanctioned by USRA. This means that drivers in this class will be required to purchase either a yearly license, or temporary license each week, from USRA to be eligible to compete. These licenses are available at the track each week, This will make the drivers eligible for not only local track points and awards, but also state, regional and national awards from USRA.
With the winter racing break getting ever closer to being over, it is only seven weeks to the annual car show and the first practice session of the 2016 season at the legendary facility in Pocola, Oklahoma. The point racing and official racing season begins, for the 46th consecutive year, with the 37th Annual Cecil Harlan Memorial Kegger on March 17th, 18th & 19th. Race information will be released soon for this event.
Class rules for all divisions, as well as the online driver registration form (required for all drivers in 2016), race schedule and more is always available on our website at www.Tri-StateSpeedway.com.
We will see YOU soon!
A limited number of race sponsorships are available for the 2016 race season, which gets cranked up in mid-March.
There are plenty of races to pick choose from. There is everything from regular weekly races to special fundraising events to huge races that draw drivers and fans from multiple states to the famous high banked track in Pocola, OK.
Here are some of the things what you get with every race sponsorship at Tri-State Speedway:
A typical regular race program will entertain around 750-1,000 fans in the stands each week, plus another 500 or so in the pit areas. Large event races can increase these numbers to around 2,000 in the stands and 1,000+ in the pit areas. Our website traffic has over 2,000 visitors a month during the off season and can reach upwards of 4,000 during large race events. Our Facebook page has over 8,600 fans and our other social media channels are growing, too.
Remember, the earlier you get your race sponsorship locked in, the longer your name and logo will be published and the better your chances are of getting the race program you want.
What are you waiting on? It's more affordable than you think!
BONUS MONEY! BONUS MONEY!
Tri-State Speedway promoter Dan King announced today that there will be a bonus program in 2016 that will be available for all IMCA classes.
The bonus program is between Tri-State Speedway and Outlaw Motor Speedway.
Here is how the bonus program will work:
If a driver wins the A Feature, in any of the three IMCA sanctioned class, at either track and then wins the following night, or week's, A Feature at the other track, that driver will earn a $150 bonus. So, if a driver wins the IMCA Modified A Feature at OMS on Friday night and then wins the IMCA Modified A Feature on Saturday night at TSS, that driver wilt pick up the $150 bonus. This bonus money is also available each week for the IMCA Sport Mods and the IMCA Stock Car classes. The bonus program also works the other direction, too. If an IMCA driver wins their A Feature on Saturday night at TSS and then follows up with another win in their A Feature, in the same class, on the next Friday at OMS, they get the $150 bonus, too!
Get your IMCA licenses and get your IMCA cars ready to go! The car shows, play days and the 37th Annual Cecil Harlan Memorial Kegger will be here before you know it!
2016 registration information will be available soon, at www.Tri-StateSpeedway.com.
The 2016 racing season is right around the corner.
