Kuntz Classic Up Next for the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series
Tour Returns to Action this Saturday, August 4 at I-30 Speedway

Beebe, Arkansas (07/31/18) – The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) will salute the career of legendary engine builder Jim Kuntz this Saturday, August 4 with the annual Kuntz Classic at I-30 Speedway.

Kuntz has a storied history of building race-winning engines for racers for decades via his Arkadelphia, Arkansas-based company, Kuntz & Co. Racing Engines. Kuntz’ engines have hundreds of wins on dirt and asphalt to their credit. In fact, former CCSDS Champions, Joey Mack, Bill Frye, Brandon Smith, and Kyle Beard all claimed titles with Kuntz & Co. Racing Engines under the hood of their hotrods.

“Jim has always been more than an engine builder, he’s always been a great friend and a huge supporter of racing,” said CCSDS CEO Chris Ellis. “This is one of my favorite events of the year because we get to say thanks to a true legend.”

On the heels of his fifth series win last weekend, Jack Sullivan has extended his advantage atop the standings as the Midwest Sheet Metal Marked Man. With his own series’ triumph last weekend, Hunter Rasdon has moved into the second position in the series’ standings. B.J. Robinson, Gavin Landers, Tanner Kellick, David Payne, Robert Baker, Chandler Petty, Robby Moore, and Cade Dillard round out the Top-10 in the current standings.

Tanner Kellick continues to hold a commanding lead in the Midwest Sheet Metal Rookie of the Year standings over Robby Moore and Jake Davis.

This Saturday, August 4 the CCSDS thunders into Tracey Clay’s I-30 Speedway (Little Rock, Arkansas). The night pays tribute to legendary Arkansas engine builder and racing support Jim Kuntz and posts a $3,000-to-win/ $400-to-start purse for the CCSDS contingent. Jack Sullivan is the defending race winner. The event will mark the third-and-final appearance of 2018 at the 1/4-mile oval with Jack Sullivan sweeping the first two events.
