THE EVENT

POCOLA, OK (April 16TH, 2016) – The third regular night of weekly racing, after last week’s rain shortened program, certainly was one not to be missed with close to 100 cars on hand. Mother Nature must have thought that she needed to let everyone know that she was still in charge as a few spot showers popped up in the surrounding areas just before race time, but no precipitation fell at the track. The evening’s racing was the star attraction with three and four wide racing all the way through the last feature of the night and two roll-overs, where both drivers walked away uninjured.

The pre-race ceremonies started at 6:04 PM with the invocation and a parade lap with the nation’s colors during the National Anthem. The evening kicked off with the make-up features from the previous week’s rain postponement.

TOP THREE - PART ONE

The first race was the IMCA Sport Mod A Feature which re-started on lap five, which is where the race was red-flagged due to rain. The finish saw Caden Ellis (84) capture the checkered flag ahead of 14 year-old Kayden Menasco (49K – Dora, AR) and Logan Ellis (118 – Wagoner, OK).

The next early feature was the IMCA Stock Car A Feature where Kevin Flock (9 – Muskogee, OK) crossed the line first as Mike Smith (1S – Spiro, OK) and Mike Wiseman (1 – Muskogee, OK) came across second and third, respectively,

The IMCA Modified A Feature was up next and Mike Hansen (12H - Dickinson, ND) stopped by and took home the win ahead of Tate Cole (89 – Fort Gibson, OK) and William Gould (60 – Calera, OK).

The Super Stock A Feature saw Cody Jones (92 – Fort Smith, AR) pick up the trophy as Neil Johnston (17 – Fort Smith, AR) finished second ahead of Scooter Scruggs (54 – Hensley, AR).

The last make-up feature was the USRA Modified A Feature. Andy Milliken (6M – Greenwood, AR) out-paced the field for the win ahead of Chad Wheeler (88 – Muskogee, OK) and Brandon Hunter (1/4 – Alma, AR).

Complete A Feature results from the make-up features are listed below. All race results, including heats and/or qualifying features from April 9TH, are available on our website at www.Tri-StateSpeedway.com.

First up on the agenda for the regular race program was heat racing for the Pure Stocks, IMCA Sport Mods, IMCA Stock Cars, IMCA Modifieds, Super Stocks and the USRA Modifieds. 94 cars took to the track during the heat races.

The intermission was next and gave everyone a chance to make a pit stop at the restrooms and get some of the concession food, including some world famous Menasco BBQ Ribs or a smoked bologna sandwich, an ice cold Coca-Cola soft drink to wash it down with and a funnel cake for desert. There was also over $100 in 50/50 funds given away at intermission, along with the trophy presentations and driver interviews for the previous race program winners.

TOP THREE – PART TWO

The Pure Stock A Feature hit the track first and Ethan Hunter (1/4 – Alma, AR) took home the win as Chris Perkins (88 – Rudy, AR) finished in second ahead of Jacob Cox (99 – Pocola, OK). There was one post-race technical DQ to the original race winner, Wesley Bourne (5 – Rock Island, OK) for not pulling the required cacuum.

The IMCA Sport Mod A Feature was up next and saw 14 year-old Kayden Menasco (49K – Dora, AR) take home the win over Rodney Cantrell (21C – Muskogee, OK) and Logan Ellis (118 – Wagoner, OK).

The IMCA Stock Cars took to the famous high banks next where Mike Wiseman (1 – Muskogee, OK) crossed the finish line first as Kevin Flock (9 – Muskogee, OK) and Keith Heaslet (5 – Indianola, OK) crossed the line in second and third respectively.

On track next was the IMCA Modifieds. Danny Womack (3 – Bixby, OK) took home the checkers as Kreg Dobson (28 – Henryetta, OK) and Mike Hansen (12H – Dickinson, ND) battled it out for second and third.

The Super Stock A Feature had Neil Johnson (17 – Fort Smith, AR) pick up the win over Cody Jones (92 – Fort Smith, AR) in second and Ray Phipps (L7 – Pocola, OK) in third.

The last A Feature of the night was for the USRA Modifieds where Chad Wheeler (88 – Muskogee, OK) emerged the victor after a long 10+ lap side by side battle with George Martin (15 – Fort Smith, AR). Chris Lewis (15L – Springdale, AR) finished in third place.

Complete A Feature results for the April 16TH point races are listed below. All race results, including heats and qualifying features, are available on our website at www.Tri-StateSpeedway.com. Current track point standings are available there, as well.

NEXT TIME

Tri-State Speedway will return to action again on April 23RD, 2016 for a night of open wheel point action. Champ Hinton Enterprises will present the Ameri-Flex Hose & Accessories Oil Capital Racing Series Sprint Cars (OCRS) for their first appearance of the 2016 season. Joining them on the famous high banks will be the IMCA Modifieds and the USRA Modifieds in point racing action. The IMCA Sport Mods will also compete, but not for points, as the USRA B-Mods will also join the class for this event. The Pure Stocks, IMCA Stock Cars and Super Stocks will have the night off.

Adult grandstand admission will be $15 and kids (6-12) will be $8. Seniors (65+) will receive a $2 discount and all military personnel (past or present) will receive a $10 discount, with proof of service. (Limit one person per military discount.)

Pit gates will open at 3:00 PM with the grandstands opening at 4:00 PM. Hot laps will begin at 5:30 PM with pre-race ceremonies to follow.
