COMP Cams Super Dirt Series Night of Champions Recap

Little Rock, Arkansas (02/21/15) – The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) presented by Lucas Oil hosted their 2014 Night of Champions banquet on Saturday, February 21st, 2015 at the Holiday Inn at the Airport (Little Rock, Arkansas) as the tour drivers were recognized for their accomplishments.

Kyle Beard was recognized as the 2014 CCSDS Champion in his #86 Upton Motorsports/Bob Pierce Super Late Model.  The title marked the second-straight for the Trumann, Arkansas driver.

In his acceptance speech Kyle Beard thanked his supporters for making his championship run possible.

“I can’t thank my family, my sponsors and the Upton family enough for their support and the great equipment they give me each night.”  Beard concluded by noting, “We have so many great sponsors on our cars and without their support it would be hard to contend for championships, so I really have to thank them as well.” He concluded by saying, “Hopefully in 2015 we can become the first three-time series champion.

The balance of the top eight in the standings were recognized including Tommy Surrett, Clay Fisher, Brandon Smith, Shannon Scott, Rick Hearnsberger, David Payne, and Lynn Beach.

The Kuntz & Co. Rookie of the Year title went to Henryetta, Oklahoma’s Shannon Scott, who overcame a season long battle with Rick Hearnsberger to claim the title. He received $1,500 for his efforts. Hearnsberger finished second ($1,000) and Kody Mea finished ($500) third in the competition.

Special awards on the night included Tommy Surrett receiving $300 for being recognized as the GRT Race Cars top heat race winner. The New Vision Graphics Pole Award went to Surrett as well.  A three-way tie was found in the COMP Cams Winner Circle competition with Kyle Beard, Jack Sullivan, and Billy Moyer Jr. each winning two features. The drivers split a $500 purse.

Clay Fisher’s head mechanic, Alan Creech received the Mark Martin Automotive Crew Chief of the Year Award for his duties on Clay Fisher’s Super Late Model. He received $200 for the honor.

Joe Garrison from GRT Race Cars and Larry Shaw from Larry Shaw Race Cars each received special recognition for lifetime contributions to Dirt Late Model racing.

As part of an initiative to bring more contingency sponsors to the series, AR Bodies was on hand and presented each driver with a $100 product certificate. The CCSDS plans to vastly expand their contingency benefits to drivers for 2015.

CCSDS presented by Lucas Oil CEO, Chris Ellis, addressed the attendees with multiple announcements.  Ellis discussed the 2015 season, which is set to be the most lucrative schedule in the history of the tour, and also announced that for the second-straight year more money will be added to purses.

The series looks to incorporate more time trials into their events at the facilities, where it's an option. The remainder of the events will continue to be passing points. The series will continue to allow Hoosier LM40 and WRS55 tires, while continuing to incorporate the Lucas 1640 and Lucas 06. For some of the events in the state of Mississippi the Hoosier 1350 will also be allowed for the first time.

It was also announced that the entry fee for each driver for each race will be increased by $5. This money will be matched by the series and will go toward more thorough tire testing.

Ellis also welcomed new tracks to the 2014 campaign including and Outlaw Motor Speedway (Oktaha, Oklahoma), East Texas Speedway (Petty, Texas), Magnolia Motor Speedway (Columbus, Mississippi) and North Mississippi Speedway (Corinth, Mississippi).

Jack Sullivan Conquers Midsouth Dirt Track Championship

Little Rock, Arkansas (09/27/14) –The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) presented by Lucas Oil put a wrap on the 2014 season on Saturday night at I-30 Speedway (Little Rock, Arkansas) with the 8th Annual Midsouth Dirt Track Championship, and it was Jack Sullivan, who cashed in his chips for the $2,500 win.

While a veteran claimed the win, it was a rookie that paced the action early in the 40 lapper as New Vision Graphics pole sitter, Gavin Landers led the way for the first eight circuits. By lap 9 though, fifth starting, Jack Sullivan shot past Landers into the top spot. With Sullivan leading the way other drivers were on the move with twelfth starting, Timothy Culp quickly finding his way into the top five as he set his sights on the leader.

Culp would look to be poised to make a charge at the top spot before a late-race caution negated his momentum. Culp would ultimately settle into the runner-up spot as Jack Sullivan led the field across the finish line for his tenth career win with the tour.

"It's no big secret that this has been a tough year for your team, so it feels real great to come back home to I-30 Speedway and pick up the win," said Sullivan. "Thanks to all of the fans and sponsors, who have continued to support us."

Shannon Scott raced to a third place finish, which allowed him to clinch the Kuntz & Co. Rookie of the Year title over Rick Hearnsberger. Brandon Smith and Tommy Surrett rounded out the top five finishers in the series final event of the year.

Gavin Landers won GRT Race Cars Heat Race #1 with Brandon Smith winning Allen Manufacturing Heat Race #2.  Jack Sullivan raced to victory in ROCKHARD Powder Coating Heat Race #3, while Shannon Scott won Woodco Inc. Heat Race #4. 

Clay Fisher and Robert Baker raced to victory in the Boston's Sports Bar & Restaurant twin b-mains. 

Patrik Daniel received the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger Award for advancing through the pack from the eighteenth starting spot to a seventh place finish, while Clay Fisher was the recipient of the Keith Craft Racing Engines Hard Luck Award after being collected in multiple incidents not of his own doing.

Kyle Beard claimed the series title for the second straight year despite having to retire from a top five run late in the race with vibrations on his #86 entry.

The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series presented by Lucas Oil has now concluded their 2014 season and would like to thank all of their great fans, teams, and sponsors for their amazing support.
