Long Pond, PA- Joey Bailey was declared the winner of the 3rd Annual Tricky Triangle Challenge at Pocono Raceway, sanctioned by Classic Racing Times.

In a bizarre turn of events, for what seemed like a beautiful Saturday evening in the Pocono Mountains, Mother Nature had other plans dropping a severe thunderstorm over the raceway just prior to 9:00 PM local time. Due to the intensity of the weather with safety in mind, both Pocono Raceway and ‘CRT’ officials declared the event official before the feature was even ran.

After storming from last to first in a 10 lap thriller, Joey Bailey earned his overall victory per the sanctioning body’s rule, by winning the first heat race of the evening. Buddy Sload, who sliced and diced his way from 4th to 1st on the opening lap of the second heat race, earned the victory in his qualifier was well. This, resulted in an overall 2nd place finish after racing was cancelled for the remainder of the evening.

The overall finishing order for all competitors was based on the finishing orders of each heat

With everyone earning equal “show-up” points, the event will have no affect on the championship outcome for those drivers who entered the event.

The Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic ATQMRA powered by VP Racing Fuels returns for a regularly sanctioned this Saturday, August 24th, 2019 at Wall Stadium Speedway, NJ.
