POCOLA — Donald Southerland became the sole qualifier and winner in the 50-lap Super Stock A Feature on Saturday at Tri-State Speedway.
Southerland raced in part of the 21st Annual Super Stock Showdown honoring John Stand and presented by Shamrock Bolt & Screw which paid out $5,000 to win the Super Stocks.
There was a tech inspection of the vehicles after the Super Stock race for all 22 drivers. As a result, only one car went to tech and passed with Southerland nabbing the win. Other drivers were disqualified for failing the tech inspection, didn’t go through the inspection, opted out of the inspection or went to the pits before going to tech.
Southerland had originally finished seventh.
Up next for the mighty Tri-State Speedway will host another multi-day event starting on Aug. 1 for the Factory Stock class, and will pay $3,000 to the winner.
There will be no racing on July 27.
