FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Columbus, Mississippi (07/02/17) – The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) presented by Lucas Oil wrapped up their three-day invasion of the Magnolia State on Sunday night with a trip to Johnny Stokes’ Magnolia Motor Speedway.
When the dust had settled on the feature, hometown racer, Brian Rickman had claimed his first-career victory with the tour in dominant fashion.
New Vision Graphics Pole Sitter Rick Rickman was joined on the front row for the feature by his brother, Brian Rickman. When the green flag dropped on the feature, Brian bolted to the lead, and it would be the last time that most of his competitors would see him.
As the pilot of the Rickman Trucking #90 Rocket XR-1 Chassis/ Jay Dickens Racing Engine drove away from the field a great battle waged behind him for the runner-up position.
Jack Sullivan, Rick Rickman, Gavin Landers, and Chad Thrash feverishly chased each other through the cushion in pursuit of the runner-up spot.
Thrash would ultimately take control of the position with Rick Rickman settling into the third position. That’s how they would cross the finish line.
“My car was awesome, but it was far from easy because my throttle spring broke early in the feature, so I was having to pull the pedal back up with my foot for most of the race,” Brian Rickman said in Victory Lane moments after claiming the $2,000 win. “It feels great to win one of these races finally, and I want to dedicate it to everyone who helps me on this car.”
Jack Sullivan and Gavin Landers completed the Top-5 finishers.
Jon Mitchells received the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger Award for advancing from the 19th-starting spot to a 13th-place finish.
B.J. Robinson was the recipient of the Henryetta Ford Hard Luck Award after battling issues throughout the night and falling just short of qualifying for the feature.
Next Saturday, July 8 the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) will invade Boothill Speedway (Greenwood, Louisiana) for a $2,500-to-win event. For more information on the facility, please visit www.BoothillDirt.com .
