The time trials begin at 7:30 p.m. with the drivers’ qualifying from their fastest time to the heat races and on to the feature races.

Three Van Buren drivers won Saturday at Tri-State Speedway as part of the 43rd Annual Firecracker Spectacular presented by Shamrock Bolt & Screw Company on Saturday.

Charlie Jones, Dalton McKenzie and Marshall Penson each posted wins in their respective classes.

Jones won his first Mini Stock race of the year at TSS and McKenzie became the third winner in three weeks as he took first in the Economy/360 Modified. Penson won his seventh Pure Stock race.
