Ethan Dotson Claims First COMP Cams Super Dirt Series Victory at Old No. 1
Action Continues at Riverside Intl. Speedway on Saturday, April 29
HARRISBURG, Ark. (04/28/23) – California native and Modified star, Ethan Dotson busted through for his first-career COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) Super Late Models victory on Friday night at Old No. 1 Speedway (Harrisburg, Ark.).
The triumph was worth $5,000.
Dotson overtook fellow-front-row starter and NewVisionCustomShirts.com Pole Sitter, Timothy Culp as the 40-lap feature came to green. The Bakersfield, Cal. Racer led the first 11 circuits before third-starting Kyle Beard took control on the 12 circuit.
Beard’s time at the point would be short-live however, as a flat tire during a lap 14 caution forced the two-time series champion pitside for a fresh left-rear tire as Dotson inherited the top spot.
Over the remainder of the event Dotson maintained the lead. He crossed the finish line 1.719 seconds ahead of Culp with Hunter Rasdon, Morgan Bagley, and Billy Moyer completing the Top-5 finishers.
Not only was the victory Dotson’s first with CCSDS, but it was also his first Super Late Model win.
Jon Mitchell climbed 10 spots in the finale to finish 11th, which earned him the MD3 Hard Charger Award
On Saturday the action moves to Clayton Allen’s Riverside International Speedway (West Memphis, Ark.). Sharing the spotlight with the CCSDS Super Late Model contingent will be 305 c.i. Winged Sprint Cars, Mini Sprints, and Stock Cars.
Gates open at 5 p.m. CT with hot laps at 6:30 p.m. and racing action at 7:30 p.m.
