COMP Cams Super Dirt Series Reveals Ronny Adams Memorial Details
Two Complete Shows with $10,000 Possible To Win
Conway, Arkansas (01/14/20) – The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series presented by Lucas Oil is pleased to announce the details for the inaugural Ronny Adams Memorial, which will open the 2020 campaign for the series on March 6-7 at Boothill Speedway (Greenwood, Louisiana).
Friday’s program is highlighted by a complete $3,000-to-win/ $400-to-start program for the CCSDS competitors. Meanwhile, Saturday night’s event is capped with a complete $7,000-to-win/ $500-to-start event.
“This is a great way for our series to open the 2020 season. It’s an honor to be a part of an event that salutes the memory of such a well-respected and accomplished racer,” CCSDS CEO, Chris Sullivan said. “Additionally, these are two great purses for the racers, and the fans get the opportunity to see two great shows.”
Veteran racer, Ronny Adams passed away on August 10, 2019 after a short battle with cancer. During his 51-year career the Texas native raced to 589 career wins, including 14 track championships at Boothill Speedway and nine Louisiana State Championships.
For Boothill Speedway officials, hosting the inaugural Ronny Adams Memorial early in their 48th season of racing is a special opportunity.
“Ronny [Adams] was the kind of guy that everyone liked and respected. He did a lot to support and help racing in our area, and to have his memorial race at our facility is something that we don’t take lightly,” Boothill Speedway promoter, Brian Frazier commented. “We originally talked about making this a two-day show for a single purse, but then decided it would be more racer and fan friendly to have two separate shows.”
The weekend opens with an Open Practice Session on Thursday, March 5. Factory Stocks and Limited Modifieds will join the program on Friday and Saturday. On Friday both divisions will contest heat races, while Saturday will see each class battling in $1,000-to-win/ $100-to-start finales. Additionally, Pro Mods will run a complete $400-to-win/$50-to-start program on Saturday.
On Friday and Saturday adult grandstand admission is $20 each night. Children (ages 5-and-under) are free in the grandstands. Pit passes are $20 on Thursday, and $35 on both Friday and Saturday.
On Thursday the gates open at 4 p.m. with practice beginning at 6 p.m. On Friday the gates open at 5 p.m. with the draw ending at 7:15 p.m., hot laps at 7:30 p.m. and racing action at 8 p.m. Saturday’s program includes gates opening at 4 p.m. with the draw ending at 6:15 p.m., hot laps at 6:30 p.m. and racing action at 7:00 p.m.

The 2020 season marks the 14th year for the tour and includes more than 30 dates spread across 12 tracks in five states.
In 2019 Timothy Culp laid claim to his first-career COMP Cams Super Dirt Series Championship. The Louisiana native became the eighth-different champion in the 13-year existence of the tour.

Shirley Wins Wild West Shootout Opener in Arizona
Illinois Driver Pockets $5,000
CHILTON, Wis. (01/13/20) – Brian Shirley charged to his first win of the season on Saturday night in the opening round of the Keyser Manufacturing Wild West Shootout at FK Rod Ends Arizona Speedway (Queen Creek, Ariz.).
In his first ever trip to the annual Arizona miniseries, Shirley piloted his Bob Cullen Racing No. 3s Thomason Express/ J&J Ventures Gaming/ XR1 Rocket Chassis/ Durham Racing Engine Super Late Model to a $5,000 victory.
“What can I say, I mean, I’ve just been blessed, blessed with a great team,” Shirley said in Victory Lane. “The point of coming out here was so me, Anthony [Burroughs], Aaron [Mitchell], Mikey [Myers], could gel.”
Shirley started the night by posting the second-quickest lap in his time trial group. He followed that up with an eight-lap heat race win, earning him the sixth starting spot for the 40-lap main event.
Taking advantage of Ricky Thornton Jr.'s slipup on lap-29, Brian took the lead and pulled away to a 1.905 second advantage in the final 10 laps for the win. Trailing Shirley to the finish line were Frank Heckenast Jr., Thornton Jr., Brandon Sheppard, and Chris Simpson.
“At Vado … we had some things and miscues there where we just didn’t do a good job. We worked three days and Anthony [Burroughs] took the whole car apart,” said Shirley. “Just looking forward to getting the races in and some laps and just thankful that the good Lord blessed me.”
With another $5,000 on the line on Sunday night, Shirley qualified fourth overall in his group and went on to finish third in his heat race. After starting 10th in the 40-lap feature, Brian advanced three positions to record a seventh-place finish.
The Keyser Manufacturing Wild West Shootout resumes at FK Rod Ends Arizona Speedway on Wednesday, January 15 with another $5,000-to-win event. Additional information and full results from the weekend are available at www.WildWestShootout.net.
