Byram, Mississippi (07/01/17) – For the second-night in a row Jack Sullivan found himself in Victory Lane with the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) presented by Lucas Oil. He pocketed $2,500 for his efforts at Jackson Motor Speedway.
The Midwest Sheet Metal Marked Man overcame a wild late-race tussle with Rick Rickman and Garrett Alberson to score his sixth win of the season.
New Vision Graphics Pole Sitter Rick Rickman and Jack Sullivan brought the field to the green flag with Rickman grabbing the early advantage.
Sixth-starting Garrett Alberson quickly found his way into the runner-up position with Sullivan in close pursuit.
During the opening stages of the event, Rick Rickman quickly extended his advantage over the field as racers utilized multiple grooves around the ¼-mile oval.
By lap 18 Alberson was starting to catch Rickman, and one lap later, Rickman’s lead would be completely erased by a caution for a spinning Kyle Beard.
On the ensuing restart Sullivan surged ahead to take the lead. After seeing Sullivan lead a single circuit, Rickman retook the top spot on lap 20. From that point it would be a battle to the end between Rickman, Sullivan, and Alberson.
Rickman and Sullivan exchanged the lead on multiple occasions over the second half of the 40-lapper before Sullivan took control of the lead for good on lap 35.
The Greenbrier, Arkansas driver went on to register the $2,500 victory, which was his series-best 22nd of his career.
Rick Rickman, Garrett Alberson, Michael Arnold, and Chad Thrash completed the Top-5 finishers.
Gavin Landers received the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger Award for advancing from the 18th-starting spot to an 11th-place finish.
B.J. Robinson was the recipient of the Henryetta Ford Hard Luck Award after hard contact with the front stretch wall on lap 6, brought his night to a disappointing, early end.
