COMP Cams Super Dirt Series Releases 2017 Working Schedule

1Beebe, Arkansas (11/29/16) – The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) presented by Lucas Oil is proud to release the working version of their 2017 slate.

"In the 11 years that I’ve been running the series, I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited for a season than I am for 2017,” said CCSDS CEO, Chris Ellis. “This schedule that we’ve put together is really exciting. Not only are we returning to our mainstays, but we also will visit some new tracks. Plus, I’m excited to announce that all of our Saturday night shows will pay at least $2,500 to win.”

The 2017 working schedule makes its debut with 27 nights of racing, spanning 24 events at 13 different facilities. The season opens with a doubleheader on March 30 and April 1 at Timberline Speedway (Corley, Texas) and Lonestar Speedway (Kilgore, Texas).

The April 1 date at LoneStar Speedway will mark the series’ first-ever appearance at the 3/8-mile oval. Another LoneStar Speedway date will bookend the schedule as the series sanctions the annual Topless Turkey Nationals at the facility on November 25.

Other new tracks on the tour in 2016 include Boothill Speedway (Shreveport, Louisiana), which will host dates on June 24 and August 26. The recently reopened Mid America Speedway (South Coffeyville, Oklahoma) visits the schedule on July 7-8 with a $10,000-to-win event, which will be co-sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Midwest Late Model Racing Association (MLRA).

The CCSDS competitors will once again go head-to-head with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) in a pair of events at Batesville Motor Speedway (Locust Grove, Arkansas). On April 7-8 the annual Bad Boy 98 will post a $20,000 top prize, while the 25th annual COMP Cams Topless 100 will see racers chasing a $40,000 winner’s check on August 18-19.

“We still have another 3-4 events that will likely be added to the schedule, but we wanted to give racers and fans a glimpse into what we have working so far,” noted Ellis. “I definitely want to thank everyone, who supports our series. Without the fans, the racers, and the sponsors there’s no way we could be preparing for our 11th season. It’s almost hard to believe that we will sanction our 200th event this season.”

(Special to Trenton Berry)

Wheatland, Missouri (10/08/16) – Bobby Pierce came to life in the closing laps of the $5,000-to-win finale on Saturday night at Lucas Oil Speedway with the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) and Lucas Oil Midwest Late Model Racing Association (MLRA). He took the lead coming to the white flag and rolled to his first ever Lucas Oil Speedway victory and 23rd overall this season.

"I didn't think I would be able to get around him [Stovall]," commented Pierce. "He was so perfect on the top. He could even maneuver around three and four good. I saw some lapped cars in the way and thought this might be my chance. He jumped the cushion over there [in turn two]. It's real easy to do at this place."

Stovall led several laps in the feature before lapped traffic slowed his pace. He slipped over the berm in turn two on lap 49 and opened the door for Pierce to take the top spot. Stovall held on to second, and by merely starting the feature captured his first ever Lucas Oil MLRA title.

"That [championship] was the ultimate goal," said Stovall. "It was a good race. Bobby is one of the best in the business right now. He's got that golden horseshoe right now. He does a good job. His dad is awesome at getting the car underneath him every time he's on the racetrack. That's a hard team to beat."

Chris Simpson finished third in his final start of the season. He rolled from 15th and made his way into contention.

Pierce's win came following a full night of racing. He struggled in his heat, had to run the B Feature, which he won, started towards the back of the feature, and passed the most cars during the main event to also earn the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger award.

Jack Sullivan continued his good fortune from Friday. Both shows combined were enough for him to capture the COMPp Cams Super Dirt Series crown. He came into the weekend down 37 markers and ultimately claimed the championship by 3 points. It is his second-straight series title.

“Wow, what a weekend for our team,” said Sullivan after learning he had rallied to claim the championship. “We had some bad luck there early in the season, and I didn’t know if I could recover to get this championship. This weekend we were able to do just that though. I want to thank my team, my family, my sponsors, and all of my fans for never giving up on me.”

Jackson, Tennessee’s Jonathan Rowan was crowned the Kuntz & Co. Rookie of the Year with the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series.

“It was a really tight battle with Austin [Theiss] and I for the rookie title the whole year, and it feels amazing to officially claim it,” noted Rowan. “We had so much fun on the road with the series in 2016, and I learned so much along the way. We are really looking forward to next year.”
