FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Beebe, Arkansas (11/29/16) – The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) presented by Lucas Oil is proud to release the working version of their 2017 slate.
"In the 11 years that I’ve been running the series, I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited for a season than I am for 2017,” said CCSDS CEO, Chris Ellis. “This schedule that we’ve put together is really exciting. Not only are we returning to our mainstays, but we also will visit some new tracks. Plus, I’m excited to announce that all of our Saturday night shows will pay at least $2,500 to win.”
The 2017 working schedule makes its debut with 27 nights of racing, spanning 24 events at 13 different facilities. The season opens with a doubleheader on March 30 and April 1 at Timberline Speedway (Corley, Texas) and Lonestar Speedway (Kilgore, Texas).
The April 1 date at LoneStar Speedway will mark the series’ first-ever appearance at the 3/8-mile oval. Another LoneStar Speedway date will bookend the schedule as the series sanctions the annual Topless Turkey Nationals at the facility on November 25.
Other new tracks on the tour in 2016 include Boothill Speedway (Shreveport, Louisiana), which will host dates on June 24 and August 26. The recently reopened Mid America Speedway (South Coffeyville, Oklahoma) visits the schedule on July 7-8 with a $10,000-to-win event, which will be co-sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Midwest Late Model Racing Association (MLRA).
The CCSDS competitors will once again go head-to-head with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) in a pair of events at Batesville Motor Speedway (Locust Grove, Arkansas). On April 7-8 the annual Bad Boy 98 will post a $20,000 top prize, while the 25th annual COMP Cams Topless 100 will see racers chasing a $40,000 winner’s check on August 18-19.
“We still have another 3-4 events that will likely be added to the schedule, but we wanted to give racers and fans a glimpse into what we have working so far,” noted Ellis. “I definitely want to thank everyone, who supports our series. Without the fans, the racers, and the sponsors there’s no way we could be preparing for our 11th season. It’s almost hard to believe that we will sanction our 200th event this season.”
