Black Ice Tamed by Bub McCool in CCSDS Competition

Columbus, Mississippi (05/09/15) – For the second-straight night the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) presented by Lucas Oil competed in a challenge event against the Mississippi State Championship Challenge Series (MSCCS) in the Magnolia State. While the venue changed, the winner did not as Vicksburg, Mississippi’s Bub McCool snared top honors in the $2,500-to-win affair.

Saturday’s action was contested at the state-of-the-art, Magnolia Motor Speedway (Columbus, Mississippi), where a stout field of forty-seven competitors entered the event.

While Fulton, Mississippi’s Eric Cooley earned the New Vision Graphics Pole Award via preliminary action, it was fellow-front-row starter, Billy Moyer, who jumped to the lead at the drop of the green flag. Moyer paced the field until lap 7, when McCool capitalized on lap traffic to seize control of the top spot. Moyer fell to second with Chad Thrash, Timothy Culp and Jimmy Cliburn in close pursuit.

The next several laps allowed McCool to stretch his advantage. However, as the race approached its midway point, the field again endured lapped traffic, which saw Moyer narrow the gap. Lap 21 found Moyer catapulting back into the top spot, and he would lead the next two laps before McCool regained control for good on lap 23.

The event’s sole caution flew on lap 24, when Brian Rickman rolled to a stop. At the time of the caution McCool led over Moyer, Thrash, Dane Dacus, Chad Thrash, and Rick Rickman.

As the green flew again McCool was able to motor away from the pack en route to the weekend sweep aboard his RBT Motorsports #57J Club 29/Jay Dickens Super Late Model. The victory was the fourth of his career with the CCSDS.

“I always love coming to Magnolia, but this place has a history of giving me fits,” noted McCool. “Tonight though the car was awesome. I have to thank my car owner, Randy Thompson, along with my crew, fans, and sponsors for their great support.”
Billy Moyer paced the field in qualifying with a 13.379 second lap around the 3/8 mile oval.

Eric Cooley won GRT Race Cars Heat Race #1 with Billy Moyer winning Allen Manufacturing Heat Race #2. Eric HIckerson raced to victory in Hoosier Tire Heat Race #3, while won Bub McCool Lucas Oil Heat Race #4.

The Boston’s Sports Bar and Restaurants B-Mains were topped by Clay Fisher and Chad McCool.

The Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger Award went to Clay Fisher for advancing twelve spots from his 18th starting position. Allen Murray was the recipient of the Wilwood Tough Break of the Race Award for falling victim to a melee in his heat race, while in a transfer spot, and then seeing an engine expire, while running in a transfer spot in the b-main.

The CCSDS competitors will now enjoy the rest of May free from racing action. Next on tap will be the 5th Annual Rockabilly 45 at I-30 Speedway (Little Rock, Arkansas), which will be held June 5th-6th. Friday night’s program will be highlighted by a $1,500-to-win/$200-to-start feature, while Saturday will include a $3,000-to-win/$300-to-start feature.

History Made by Bub McCool at Greenville Speedway

Greenville, Mississippi (05/08/15) – History was made on Friday evening as the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) presented by Lucas Oil went head-to-head with the Mississippi State Championship Challenge Series (MSCCS) for the first time ever in a showdown at Greenville Speedway (Greenville, Mississippi).
When the checkered flag dropped on the night it was Bub McCool scoring the $2,000 win by a matter of inches.

On a night plagued by rain, Brian Rickman and Duke Palasini brought the field to the green flag for the 40 lap finale. Rickman snagged the lead at the drop of the green flag and paced the field until lap 11, when the first caution flew for his brother, Rick Rickman, who slowed.

At the time of the caution Brian Rickman was followed by Robert Baker, Palasini, and tenth starting, Bub McCool.

The feature would be slowed once more by a caution period with Rickman maintaining the lead as McCool raced his way into the second spot. The race endured a long green-flag run to close the finale, and this set the stage for McCool to reel in Rickman in lapped traffic.

On the final lap McCool made his move on Rickman, and won the drag race to the checkered flag to claim the win by a matter of inches. Rickman, Kyle Beard, Robert Baker, and Duke Palasini rounded out the top five finishers. The victory was the third CCSDS triumph of McCool’s career.

Local standout, Duke Palasini from Leland, Mississippi blazed to fast time honors in qualifying with a 14.453 second lap around the ¼ mile oval.

Garry Alberson won GRT Race Cars Qualifier #1 with Bub McCool winning Allen Manufacturing Qualifier #2.  The Lucas Oil Dash was won by Brian Rickman

The Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger Award went to Jack Sullivan, who advanced from the 22nd starting spot to an 11th place finish. The recipient of the Wilwood Tough Break of the Race Award was Gavin Landers, who saw his weekend come to an early end, when he was collected in an accident on a rain-soaked track in his qualifier.

Saturday evening, May 9th will find the CCSDS sanctioning their first-ever event at the state-of-the-art, Magnolia Motor Speedway (Columbus, Mississippi) as they once again go into battle against the MSCCS racers. The 3/8 mile oval, known as the “black ice,” will play host to a $2,500-to-win, 40 lap program. NeSmith Late Models, Street Stocks, and Factory Stocks will be part of the program. Driver’s meeting is at 6:00 pm with hot laps at 6:30 p.m. For more information on the event, please visit www.MagnoliaDirt.com .

It’s All Timothy Culp at Ark-La-Tex with COMP Cams Super Dirt Series

Vivian, Louisiana (05/02/15) – On Saturday night Timothy Culp returned to the track, where he honed his driving schools as a rookie and came away with his first COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) presented by Lucas Oil triumph of 2015.

Ark-La-Tex Speedway played host to the CCSDS invaders as a stout field of thirty-three drivers entered the program to chase the $2,000 top prize. Garrett Alberson, who was the runner-up in series action one night earlier claimed the New Vision Graphics Pole Award after accumulating more passing points than any other driver in heat race action. He was joined on the front row by Sheridan, Arkansas’ driver, Timothy Culp.

Culp jumped to the lead at the drop of the green flag with Alberson and Kyle Cummings in tow. By lap 10 the leaders were in lap traffic as two and three wide battles raged supreme throughout the field.

While Culp cruised at the front of the field Alberson and Cummings battled side-by-side for second. The duo swapped the spot multiple times before Cummings took sole possession of the spot just past the halfway mark.

A late-race caution set up a green-white-checkered finish, and Cummings would take his best shot at Culp for the lead. Despite his strong efforts he came up just short as Timothy Culp claimed his third career CCSDS win. Culp and Cummings were followed across the finish line by Alberson, Shannon Scott, and Kyle Beard.

Kyle Pleasant won GRT Race Cars Heat Race #1 with Timothy Culp winning Allen Manufacturing Heat Race #2.  Kyle Cummings raced to victory in ROCKHARD Powder Coating Heat Race #3, while Lee Davis won Woodco Inc. Heat Race #4.

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.

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).
