THE EVENT

POCOLA, OK (March 20TH, 2016) – The weather people were mostly wrong all weekend for the 37th Annual Cecil Harlan Memorial Kegger presented by The Mower Shop, Inc. and benefitting the local Make-A-Wish Foundation Mid-South chapter. Practice on the 17TH was as predicted, weather-wise, with over 70 cars on hand. Then the rains came on the 18TH. What was supposed to be a few small quick showers turned into over an inch of rain and wiped out qualifying, which pushed everything forward one day. Qualifying on the 19TH was, as predicted, very windy and cold. The finals on the 20TH was supposed to be sunny and no wind. There was sun at times, but it stayed windy all afternoon. Weatherman’s grade for the weekend? D.

The finals afternoon kicked off after hot laps with an interview with the owner of The Mower Shop, Inc. about their promotion of giving away a free Grasshopper mower with their Make-A-Wish Foundation activities.

A remembrance of the late Cecil Harlan was read. Cecil was the former owner and promoter for more than 20 years of Tri-State Speedway and passed in 2011, after a battle with Lou Gehrig’s Disease. That was followed by the invocation and a parade lap with the nation’s colors during the National Anthem. The first green flag of the afternoon was waved by Tamyra Hanna, Cecil’s daughter.

First up on the last day of competition was the five B Features for the cars not already locked into the A Feature from the previous day of qualifying, where the top eight cars were set. This was followed by a short hot lap session for those locked in cars.

The intermission gave everyone a chance to stretch their legs and get some of the concession food, including some world famous Menasco BBQ and a hot beverage to wash it all down with. There was also some 50/50 funds given away at intermission, along with some Frisbees tossed into the stands with free food and drink items, as well as free admission passes for future racing.

Also during intermission there was a collection taken for the Skelton family whose car hauler caught fire early on Sunday causing a complete loss of their race car, hauler and tow vehicle. They also lost clothing and other personal items inside the hauler. We will post information soon on how you can help this family in their time of need.

TOP THREE

The Pure Stock A Feature hit the track first and Dylan Johnson (2321) took home the win as Jalen Brewton (41B – Alma, AR) finished in second ahead of Chris Perkins (88 - Rudy, AR). These were actually the fifth, sixth and seventh place cars across the finish line. However, the top four cars were all DQ’d for spring spacers.

The IMCA Sport Mod A Feature was up next and saw Aaron Scroggins (1/4 – Neosho, MO) pick up the win as Steve Butler (40 – Siloam Springs, AR) finished in second and Camden Perry (14C - Lincoln, AR) in third. There was also a tech DQ in this class on for a trailing arm violation and also a DQ for an engine set back violation.

Next up was the IMCA Stock Car A Feature that saw Kyle Slader (19S - Muskogee OK) pick up his first win of the afternoon ahead of Kris Vaughn (35) and Andrew Bohanan (33R – Stigler, OK).

The Super Stock A Feature rolled out next and saw Kyle Slader (19S - Muskogee OK), win his second feature of the afternoon as Tony Anglin (327 – Walnut Ridge, AR) and Brint Hartwick (9 – Red Bud, AR) finished in second and third, respectively.

The IIMCA Modified A feature saw Jeff James (71) take home the $2,000 paycheck for the win while Tate Cole (89 – Fort Gibson, OK) finished in second ahead of Richie Tosh (11).

The TSS Modified A feature was up last with Kenny Gaddis (2) taking home the checkers ahead of Myles Newman (III – Alma, AR) and Brent Holman (17 – Rogers, AR) in third.

There was also a $100 Cecil Harlan Hard Charger Award presented by Slader Race Cars in the IMCA Sport Mod class that was awarded to Steve Butler (40 - Siloam Springs, AR).
