Tony Jackson Jr. Tops Tri-State Speedway CCSDS Action
Salina Highbanks Speedway Double Shot on Friday and Saturday
Pocola, Oklahoma (06/28/18) – The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) made their lone appearance of the 2018 campaign at Oklahoma’s Tri-State Speedway on Thursday night, and it was Lebanon, Missouri’s Tony Jackson Jr. who pocketed the $3,000 top prize.
Jesse Stovall earned the New Vision Graphics Pole Position for the 40-lap affair, and he paced the first five laps before Jackson Jr. stormed to the lead on lap 6.
Jackson Jr. paced the field until lap 29, when a bobble in lapped traffic allowed Stovall to slip past. After just one circuit out front Stovall would relinquish the lead to Jackson Jr. who went on to score the win. It was his second series win of 2018 and the sixth of his career.
"I felt pretty comfortable, then when those lapped cars got me bottled up, I didn't really know where he (Jesse Stovall) was," winner Tony Jackson Jr. said. "Jesse, he's a great racer. I knew he was there so when he got under me, he had to drive in hard obviously to get under me. Then he slipped up and that gave me the door to get back by him. I knew that once I got back by him I had to finish the race as fast as I could."
Cade Dillard stole the runner-up spot from Stovall on the final lap. Stovall, Will Vaught and Jack Sullivan completed the Top-5 finishers.
David Payne earned the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger Award for advancing six spots to finish 13th. Midwest Sheet Metal Rookie of the Year leader Tanner Kellick received the Henryetta Ford Hard Luck Award after being collected in a lap-31 melee.
