COMP Cams Super Dirt Series Gets Ready to Rockabilly
Little Rock, Arkansas (07/10/17) – The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) presented by Lucas Oil will return to action this Saturday, July 15. The tour has its sights set on its richest stand-alone event of the season – the 7th Annual Rockabilly 45 at I-30 Speedway (Little Rock, Arkansas).
The event was originally slated for mid-June at the ¼-mile oval, but Mother Nature had other ideas, forcing the postponement of the event. The tour was on the losing end of a tussle with the weather this past weekend as well as late-afternoon rain nixed Saturday’s event at Louisiana’s Boothill Speedway.
The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series will look for brighter skies this Saturday, July 15.
A talented cast of competitors will be on hand as they look to chase their share of the prize money in the 45-lap finale. The event pays $5,000-to-win and $500-to-start.
In addition, Allen Manufacturing has stepped up to sponsor a Non-Qualifier’s Dash. The first four drivers, who fail to transfer to the finale will compete in a 6-lap dash. The payout for the four drivers will be $300, $250, $150, and $100.
As the Midwest Sheet Metal Marked Man, Jack Sullivan leads the CCSDS contingent into battle. The two-time and defending series champ will be sporting the florescent day-glow orange spoiler.
Garrett Alberson, Kyle Beard, Zach McMillan, BJ Robinson, Gavin Landers, Tanner Kellick, Robert Baker, Jon Mitchell, Brandon Wilson, Hunter Rasdon, David Payne, Chandler Petty, Trey Beene and Charlie Cole currently round out the Top 15 in series standings.
With ten events completed on the 2017 CCSDS season, five drivers have visited Victory Lane. Sullivan leads the way with a staggering six wins, while Kyle Beard, Timothy Culp, Brian Rickman and Tim McCreadie each have a single triumph on the season.
The Midwest Sheet Metal Rookie of the Year battle is currently led by Zach McMillan, who holds a three-point advantage over Louisiana’s Tanner Kellick. Brandon Wilson is in third, fifteen points removed from the lead.
Other expected entries this weekend include Jared Landers, Wendell Wallace, Timothy Culp, and a host of others.
The 7th Annual Rockabilly 45 will fire off this Saturday, July 15 at I-30 Speedway (Little Rock, Arkansas). The CCSDS competitors will take part in a program that will include time trials, heat races, consolation events, the Allen Manufacturing Non-Qualifier Dash, and the $5,000-to-win/$500-to-start, 45 lap finale. IMCA Modifieds, Bumper to Bumper Super Stocks, Factory Stocks, 600cc Mini Sprints and Mod Lites will also be part of the show.
The night will also serve as a fundraiser and awareness event for the Will McGary Foundation. McGary was a Conway, Arkansas police officer, who was fatally injured in the line of duty in February 2013. The Foundation was created to support law enforcement and youth in the Central Arkansas area.
Jack Sullivan will run a special graphics’ scheme for the event, which will be highlighted by #474, which was McGary’s badge number. Sullivan will also sell special shirts with all money raised going to the Foundation.
Adult grandstand admission is $20 with kids (ages 6-12) $1 when accompanied by an adult. Ages 5-and-under are free. Pit passes are $30. For more information on the event, please visit www.I-30Speedway.com .
