Five caution flags slowed the 53-lap main event. The first yellow came out on the opening lap as Robby Moses slowed in turn four. The field was then re-aligned and sent off again for the start when a nine-car pileup on the backstretch again brought out the yellow flag for the second time. The third yellow flag would wave on lap six as front-runners Mike Marlar and Casey Roberts would both spin together in turn one. Marlar went pitside with damage and Roberts changed a tire and regained the field from the back. On lap nine, George Mashburn spun with a left front tire blown in turn four to bring out the fourth yellow while Daniel Wilson spun his entry on lap 48 in turn two to bring out the final caution of the race. | full results

Morgan Turpen Takes Fifth USCS Win of the 2016 Season in Monday Night Tarheel Special!
The defending United Sprint Car Series National Champion Morgan Turpen of Cordova, TN found the track conditions of Tri-County Race Track to her liking on Monday night, as she took her fifth 20th Anniversary USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour Presented by K&N Filters win of the season.

The “Queen of the Wings” came from the fifth starting spot and used the inside groove of Tri-County Race Track to work her way through the pack. Turpen took the lead from Johnny Bridges of Cherryville, NC on lap 22 of the 30 lap main event. From that point in the race, the only time Turpen left the bottom of the track was to work around lapped traffic.

“We’ve had a good car all year, and slick tracks are our specialty, so I knew we would be tough to beat tonight,” Turpen said. “The bottom of the track was the place to be tonight, and that’s where we passed all of the cars to get to the front.” | full results
