FK Rod Ends Tarheel 50 RAINED OUT & Rescheduled for Thursday Night, October 22
The remnants of Hurricane Delta have forced the postponement of another special event in the Southeast, as tonight's 17th Annual FK Rod Ends 'Tarheel 50' at Tri-County Race Track in Brasstown, North Carolina has unfortunately been RAINED OUT. Promoter Ray Cook had hoped that a big enough window of dry weather would allow the $10,000 to win Schaeffer's Oil Fall Nationals event to get into the record book tonight, but as the day progresses - the chances for more rain steadily increase.

The third race of the Fall Nationals season will be rescheduled for Thursday night, October 22 and will still pay $10,000 to the winner for Super Late Models. In fact, the entire 'Tarheel 50' program will remain the exact same for the rescheduled date of October 22. We apologize for any inconvenience and we truly hate that the 'Tarheel 50' has been rained out, as it was going to be a great event tonight at "The County."

Right Place, Right Time for Richie Pratt Jr in $5,000 Tri-County Race Track Feature Win
Richie Pratt scored his first Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco win in dramatic fashion, taking the lead at halfway after the top four drivers piled-up before then holding off a high-flying Alex Yankowski for the Tri-County Racetrack trophy in the Hurlock Auto and Speed ‘Return to Racing’ 50-lap feature.

“Last night we were in the wrong place at the wrong time on the second lap, but tonight we were in the right place,” Pratt said. “The top four all had problems and we were there to capitalize on it.”

Stewart Friesen picked up where he left off Thursday night, leading the way at the start of Friday’s 50-lap feature and leaving Richie Pratt and Tyler Dippel to battle for second. That battle didn’t last as long as hoped, as Dippel went around on lap five. A big pileup on the restart sent Larry Wight’s brand new Teo Pro Car flipping in its first event, but Wight continued on track and Friesen continued to lead. | full results
