Marshall Skinner Grabs USCS by K&N Labor Day Championship Win at Tri-County Race Track
As the old saying goes, “The fastest car doesn’t always reach the checkered flag first.” Such was the case for Marion, Arkansas veteran Marshall Skinner on Monday night at Ray Cook’s Tri County Race Track.

Skinner, the 1999 United Sprint Car Series filtercharged by K&N champion, rode in second place behind pole-sitter and 2014 race winner Anthony Nicholson through the first stint of the "Workin' Man 25" before inheriting the lead on lap 10 when Nicholson made contact with the turn one wall and flipped violently.

After cleanup was complete, Skinner held off USCS national points leader Morgan Turpen over the remaining 15 laps, including a late-race re-start with eight laps to go, to make his 4th trip of the season to the USCS Victory lane. It was his and career first win at the Brasstown, North Carolina bullring, coming on his first visit as well. | full results
