Batesville, Arkansas- Tyson Franks and his Tyson Franks Racing (TFR) team made their first visit of 2014 to Poplar Bluff Speedway (Poplar Bluff, Missouri), and they turned it into Franks’ third win of the season.
Nineteen Open Wheel Modifieds converged on the 3/8 mile, high-banked oval for the Weekly Racing Series program. Tyson won his preliminary heat race to lock into the pole position for the feature.
When the finale went green, Franks took control and lead wire-to-wire for his third victory of the season aboard his #F1 Black River
Transportation/Rockhard Powder Coating/Kill Kallz/Shaw by TFR Open Wheel Modified.
“That was the hardest I’ve drove my race car in a long time. I’d like to dedicate this win to my grandma that died exactly a week ago. She was riding shotgun with me all night,” said Franks after an emotional victory.
