We'll see YOU at the legendary Tri-State Speedway on Sunday for the car show and next weekend for the Kegger with Ken Schrader!
Due to forecasted rain, the Annual Car Show and Play Day date has been changed to Sunday, March 19th,2017 from 1 PM to 4 PM with open practice to follow from 5 PM to 8 PM on the famous high banks in Pocola, Oklahoma.
With the car show being at the race track and no paved areas, we don't want our fans to have to walk around in muddy conditions and rain to see their favorite cars and drivers.
The movement of the date will also allow the drivers an extra week to get their cars finished and ready to show. There will be a Best of Show award, as well as top three awards for each of the five classes. Concessions will be provided throughout the day.
We hope to see everyone on Sunday, March 19th at 1 PM for the Car Show and then invite you to stay around as we will have an open practice session from 5 PM to 8 PM with free grandstand admission. Pit passes will be $20 if you want to get up close and personal with the cars and drivers.
The 47th consecutive year of racing at the legendary Tri-State Speedway kicks off in less than two weeks with the annual car show and play day on March 11th, 2017. Look for more information on this event coming soon. We will also have another play day on the evening of March 18th.
Our new promoter, Tommy New, has now taken over the reins completely and is looking forward to an awesome 2017 season, which will officially kick off with the racing action with the 38th Annual Cecil Harlan Memorial Kegger. More information on this event is available on this site and via our social media channels on Facebook, Twitter and Google+.
Tommy has also re-vamped the concession stand processes to provide a better experience for our customers, including improving the speed of service. Coca-Cola will once again be our official soft drink at Tri-State Speedway. We will also be moving the beer service back to under the grandstands at one of the windows there. All of your traditional food items will be making a return appearance, too, from the great track burgers to walking tacos to BBQ sandwiches and smoked bologna, plus popcorn nachos and more.
General admission prices, for most events, will be $10 for adults, $8 for seniors (65+), $5 for kids (6-12) and free for kids 5 and under. Pit passes will remain at $30 for regular events. As in year's past, all military personnel, with proof of service, will be admitted free. (Only the person on the ID will be admitted free.) Also, law enforcement and fire department personnel, will get in free with their badges/IDs. (As with the military, only the person on the ID will be admitted free.) Special event pricing may vary.
There will also be a family pack option, for $30, for the grandstands, that will be good for up to four paying customers. For example, four adults would save you $10 or with three adults and one child, you would save $5. Family pack pricing is not available for pit passes Family pack pricing is not available for special events. Also available this year, for the grandstands, are season passes. Adult season passes will be available at the ticket window at the track through May 30th for only $225. Child season passes are not available. You save at least 25-30% over individual adult ticket pricing! The season pass is good for any night of racing including specials. Your season pass is also transferable. If you can't attend one night, you can loan your pass to a friend who loves racing.
Also, please keep in mind that folding lawn chairs will only be allowed for use on the bottom two rows of the grandstands and on the roof of the club. If you use them in any other location, you will be asked to move or to take them back you your vehicle. Only stadium chairs, cushions or blankets will be allowed in the grandstand area above the second row.
Cuztom Graphics will be back in the T-Shirt booth for this season with awesome track and event shirts and hoodies as well as other goodies for the kids.
For the racing action this season, we ill be running five classes regularly that include Pure Stocks, Super Stocks, USRA sanctioned B-Mods, IMCA Sanctioned Modifieds and USRA sanctioned Modifieds. Some minor changes have also been implemented to increase the speed of the race program and to provide more excitement for our fans this season.
We will see YOU on Sunday, March 19th for the annual car show and play day!
We would like to officially welcome Tommy New to the Tri-State Speedway family. Tommy will be taking over the reigns as the promoter at the legendary facility in Pocola, OK.
Tommy is from Hector, AR (close to Russellville) and has raced for numerous years in the familiar blue and yellow 43N stock car. We think that he will do an outstanding job for us.
Final rules for the 2017 season will be available soon.
Please join us in welcoming Tommy!
