The Action Continues at Tri-County Motor Speedway

Hudson, North Carolina (April 18, 2006) - With the first week of racing at Tri-County Motor Speedway in the history books, another bit of history will be on hand at the speedway this Friday night.

The East Coast Flathead Ford Association of North Carolina and Virginia will be on hand to show and race their vintage race cars.  All cars must be 1932-1948 Fords with a coupe or coach body style.  These souped up 60-year-old race cars put on a show that will bring back memories for the old timers and thrill the young fans alike.  These guys race hard!


Last Friday night, Kevin Leicht claimed the first trophy of the season and set the standard in which other competitors must shoot for.  The Late Models will have 50-laps to decide if Leicht will win again or there will be a new face in victory lane.

The Pepsi Super Stock Challenge got off to a great season as fans watched some of the most exciting racing action from one of the best field of cars the division has seen.  Kaleb Pressley earned the win and the other teams will have their work cut out for them.  The Pepsi Super Stock challenge will battle for 30-laps on the 4/10 mile asphalt this week.


Waylon Flynn is not a newcomer to racing, by any means, but racing Street Stock at TCMS is, and he was the man to gun for Friday night.  Flynn had his hands full staying ahead of Josh Burchette and Kevin Eby, but managed to make it to the checkered flag first.  This week look for another exciting 25-lap shootout from these racers.


A.J. Sanders is well known in the area for being a fierce Mini Stock competitor, but this past Friday night fierce does not describe the battle between Sanders and Waylon Flynn.  Sanders, obviously hungry for a win, was not going to be second and Flynn had the same thoughts.  On the last lap, Flynn slipped a little coming out of four and Sanders was across the line first.  The saga will continue for another 20-lap shootout this Friday.


Jody Church came to Tri-County with a new Fast and Furious racer and the car was designed to be just that.  Fast and furious.  Church had enough horses in the front-wheel drive machine to take the win and the cash, but other drivers in the division were left with some serious homework to do.  They will have 15-laps this Friday night to see if they can catch Church. 


If you missed the show in the Tri-County Minis, you missed one more race and a most exciting ending. Jeff Banks returned to the speedway as reigning champion in the division, but had to work his way to the front for the win. Lenoirís own Tyler Baird was in his first career race and the 14-year-old had some serious traffic to deal with to be able to follow Banks across the line.  It was the veteran and the rookie in the end, but that was not the actual end.  Another 14-year-old, Tim McRae, came across the line in a most exciting way.  He was upside down.  Part of McRae right front suspension broke in the earlier part of the race and as he came off of four to the flag the part totally gave way and the front of the car dug into the pavement sending him rolling end-over-end. Track crews were on the scene quickly and rolled the car back over and McRae climbed out to the cheers of the crowd. He was a bit shaken, but able to walk away on his own.


On April 21st, trackside parking will open at 5 and the main grandstand at 6.  Practice begins at 6, qualifying at 7 and racing action begins at 8.  Adult admission is $10, seniors $7, children 12-4 $5 and 3 and under are free.
