By Pat Simmons
Hudson, North Carolina (June 14, 2005) - Racing
returns to Tri-County Motor Speedway Friday night June 17th
with a special 50-lap Street Stock event, paying $500 to win.
There will also be racing action in the Late Models.
On tap is a 50-lap shoot out paying $1000. to the
winner. This past
week, the Late Models put on a whale of a show all the way
through the field, but the race for the lead was some of the
best racing fans have seen at Tri-County in a long time.
Josh Goble, who is the current points leader, and Rock
Harris fought tooth and nail for the lead the last half of the
race and never touched. Both
drivers are credited with driving a clean race and giving the
fans what they came for.
Marshall Sutton leads Monty Cox by ten points in the Pepsi
Challenge Super Stock class.
Cox has dominated, with Sutton being the only other
winner. This past Friday night Cox had handling problems and was
unable to challenge Sutton for the win.
Cox and Sutton will be ready to shoot it out with the rest
of the field for 30-laps this Friday night.
The Hudson Superette Street Stocks will race for 50-laps
this week and the race is sure to be exciting.
Kevin Eby has yet to get his first win of the season,
while young Josh Burchette has been to victory lane twice.
Bobby Sutton is sure to come on strong as he also has
multiple trips to victory lane.
There are any number of cars that can contend for the
chance to take home the trophy. Mark Livingston is hungry to
visit victory lane again, while several others are hungry for
their first win and the chance to take home the $500 posted
In the Mini Stock feature several drivers will be vying for
their first win, while Doug Setzer and Hank Hefner will be
looking for repeats.
The last two weeks the Fast and Furious has had new
winners, both who went to victory lane on their first time at
the track. The
Fast and Furious division is growing by leaps and bounds and
has been putting on some exciting shows for the fans.
Jeff Banks will be defending his winning streak in the
Tri-County Minis, while Andrew Bagwell, Ryan Carson and Scott
Hunter will be trying to stop the winning streak.
